  1. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    I... would have to look and see if I have the recipe, but I think it's made with quince. Might be something else; I haven't looked in ... a long time. Hokay, so, I have a recipe for sweet mincemeat, which might be what those tarts were made with. It calls for apples, but I can't imagine why you couldn't use quince instead - if you can find it. And also, no reason not to leave the candied peel out. .. where the heck do I find sultanas in this gods-forsaken country?! *rants about lack of availability of perfectly reasonable foods*

    I have cookie'd all over the kitchen. It'll be sugar cookies next; tomorrow, I think. Or started this evening, and left to chill in the 'fridge overnight. Then .. um .. I think it'll be pumpkin cake; I can send half of it to the uncles, they'll only whimper a little. >.> Started this evening isn't a bad notion, assuming I have sufficient butter. Don't think I've ever eaten tongue. Nanny used to do mince pies... tarts? for yule every year, but I can't remember if I liked them or not. I've seen quince in the stores; if I had a clue what all I needed, I might even try making some sometime. Although I don't really /do/ tarts. I only barely do pie - yes, yes, I know, shut up - and usually only if I make them. But I have a dozen or so little tart tins... for.. some reason. I don't know.

    I really need a better source for goat. Local butchers, however, give me the stupid face when I ask for something as simple as capon. *sigh* Can't imagine what kind of faces I'd get if I asked for goat. I have a big hunk of lamb in the freezer.. I should haul that out and set up for roast lamb... lamb is also nommy.

    @Dilvish the Deliverer @etherial @Pingo @Cyradis .. and Pezler, who'd get the red tag treatment if it wasn't giving me the finger... Gather your minions and delve into the depths of the Midnight Sea for the legendary lost Shield of Ages, which, the legend has it, has been used as a replacement scale for a dragon for ages untold. Take a lot of acid protection. You might just need it ..... or was it lightning? That page seems to be missing. Oh well, you're adventurers, right? You're clever. G'wan with you, we need that shield before the hoards decend on us. If you can talk the dragon into helping, there's a nice bonus in it for you.

    *Sigh* I don't paint for display.. I don't paint for display... I don't paint for display, damnit! ARGH. *makes a note to tailor special chilibombs for the culprit*

    *kitchen noises including intermittent sharp banging noises fade* The bread is rising. I repeat, the bread is rising! ... run for your lives, the blob will eat us all.

    So, you're finding sneaky ways to educate them about fabrics! I like it.

    I read somewhere that part of the reason for that is because cotton a: is a moisture sponge, and b: takes forever and a week to dry without help. And I can attest to it not holding onto heat worth beans; there's a reason my grab for cold wet mornings of chicken feeding is an old wool poncho. I like wool. It doesn't like water, it'll keep you decently warm even if you do manage to get it wet. If you manage to find some spun in the grease, it's practically waterproof. Smells weird. But near-waterproof and warm beats weird smells. ^^;

    Bread, right out of the oven. Sun-warmed cat fur (if the cat happens to be purring, it's even better). The way the air smells just before it really snows.

    More or less, yes. I mean, some of them still got chewed, because they /weren't/ on fire, but the guy wielding the flaming sphere made a pretty clean sweep of the remainder; the ones the cavalier didn't get by convincing his mount to bellyflop them.... I couldn't figure out a good reason not to let them do this, so ... insanity. And then, there were wyverns, because /none of this/ wasn't REALLY VISIBLE!
  11. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    .. This has been one of those combats. Half the party is ON FIRE, and the other half is cheering them on. The group's fighter just used one of the group's pair of flaming spheres to beat three swarms to death ... I don't even know what's going on, and I'm the GM. It's insane.

    I sing. Frequently with more enthusiasm than skill, but that seems to be sufficient for most people. :p Ah, hah, none of you have had that inflicted on you! *chuckle*

    I want a new second floor. ... Yes, that's hobby related. My studio-office is on the second floor. I want a new second floor. *sage nod*

    It occurs to me that starting to record and keep track of food intake on a gaming weekend might not have been the wisest call. Oh well. A dragon was slain today. The fighter who usually has his foot in it was a major part in the slaying of said dragon. He maintained his record of accidentally doing exactly the right thing to get the job done - in this case, grabbing the long pointy stick (replica Dragonlance) and getting the dragon to impale himself upon it so that it could be more easily chewed to shreds by the other surviving member of the party, who .. turned himself into a baby dragon. The rest of us had been flash-fried into negatives in one burst of dragonfire. It was kind of embarrassing. There was much confusion on revival; with the last thing most of us remembered being a lot of heat and pain.... But there's the fighter, a little scorched and bitten, all poofed up and proud of himself - he /slayed the dragon/! - and he didn't even need too much help to do it. Everyone agreed that he did good.

    Fold a bunch of little origamis, decorate it with those? . .. I just pulled the trigger on my cat-dragon order. I'm getting a pair, and a bunch of other things... oops.
