    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    I have today off also (and the weekend) and was forced to change my CAV 3 pledge because of a payroll error at work meaning I wasn't paid for last week at all (I am paid every two weeks so I did get enough to pay my bills and keep my pledge at the $5 level and will add to it later). I should at least have a really good paycheck in two more weeks. It is currently 5pm and I am contemplating what to have for lunch/supper and have accomplished pretty much nothing of note today.

    Ask them if bitcoins are those round things that go into the cup holder on your computer...

    Lack of matches and a suitable place to burn it?

    Hope everyone is doing ok after/with Michael!

    Here at today's work site north of Raleigh the rain hasn't started yet (as of 15 minutes ago when I reached the second site of the day), but we are expected to get up to 6 inches (approximately 15 cm) of rain on top of the 20+ inches (about 50 cm)from Florence last month. More concerning is that wind speeds are supposed to be around 50 mph (80 mph) overnight, this has caused the state fair to delay opening till tomorrow.

    Amanita Muscaria (not sure if that is spelled right, oh well) is thought to be the mushroom that the "super mushroom" from the super Mario series is based upon as it distorts the sense of scale and distance of eaten. The round red one with white spots may well be of that species, however I am not a mycologist and so would advise against sampling.

    So you're planning to have Gekko from P J Masks? https://youtu.be/y0IJ7d5COmU

    Dollar stores tend to carry chocolate oranges and the like as part of their Christmas candies. The one I used to work for usually had them on one of the endcaps rather than the main aisle.

    Salt is well known as a flavor enhancer and will bring both the sweetness and complexity of the chocolate's flavors to the front of the flavor profile while cutting out the bitterness. Chilies have been a part of chocolate since at least the Aztecs as Unruly stated above, the first introduction of Europeans to chocolate was an Aztec drink of cocoa and ground chilies. Putting bacon into chocolate bars is a rather new thing though, or potato chips (crisps for our European/British empire friends).

    I need a name for this cat

    I have given my step-nephew's cat (who lives with my brother and sister in law while his owner lives in Denver) the nickname of "Thud" for the sound he makes getting off of anything. His actual name is Butters after the SouthPark character. My cat on the other hand is named Kali after the Hindu goddess. She gets called Kali cat and KK a lot.

    Pottermore - What did you get?

    Apparently my wand is Larch wood with a unicorn hair core, 12 3/4 inches long, unyielding flexibility. Don't know what that says about me, but it's a thing.

    Add to that the nebulous nature of the sea and surrounding areas from the new edition of Freeport and it can be pretty much anywhere you want it to be. Love that setting...

    Pottermore - What did you get?

    I went through the full question set patronus quiz and it crashed, the second time I tried it said my patronus was a thestral, which shouldn't surprise anyone that knows me either.

    Be glad that the .22 cartridge didn't fit... they will blow as fuses are supposed to, just rather more violently. ETA: and, unfortunately, I am from the part of the country where this is at most learned from secondhand experience.

    Pottermore - What did you get?

    Surprising no one that has actually met me these are my results. As to my patronus, I am being told very loudly that it better be a calico house cat.

    Still raining, still flooding going on in parts of the state (only minor flooding in my portion, but that could change today as it has been pouring rain at my house since 2 am), but we were required to return to work if possible today.
