I got a new blow torch for this one.

 

Dare I ask what kind of project requires a blow torch?

I am sick.

 

I am spending the last days of my vacation sick.

 

I am spending the last days of my vacation too sick to assemble anything from the large box of CAVs that just arrived.

 

I need to make an offering to the Egyptian god of frustration.

I like it.

 

Okay, soup is cooking, house smells of sauteed onions, and my coffee is hot. Life is good.

I certainly hope you're not preparing something to eat...

 

 

In other news, I am organizing and packing stuff. I will be moving soon.

I don't like packing, or moving.

A blowtorch is totally a food prep item.

If I remember properly, from a long ago Julia Child's appearance... Onion soup.

 

The Auld Grump - the scary thing is when I was looking for the video on YouTube, I only got as far as Julia Child B - and Blowtorch popped up as the top selection.... ::D: And how many blowtorch selections there were for her.... :blink: She also used the blowtorch on hamburgers....

 

I saw Julia Child and Vincent Price together in Cambridge - in a cafe, talking about PBS funding and food. The images did not prepare me for how very tall she was - she and Vincent Price were nearly the same height - and he was over six feet tall.

It may be worth mentioning that Julia Child would also use chemical glassware when cooking - she was making her show in Cambridge, and used lab equipment was both easy to get and worked. Using a stopcock funnel for a gravy separator....

 

The Auld Grump, and now we add a touch of vermouth, to mask the scorching....

Ok, ok fine.  I stand (well, I'm sitting down, but anyway...) corrected.

I just don't happen to think of blow torches when I think of cooking, I think of blow torches for metal working, among other things.

I actually am!

My new cold smoker lights best with the blow torch.

Today is the first foray into smoking cheese.

 

I've decided to do 50 new things this year. This is on the list.

Trust me when I say that anybody that watched the old French Chef episodes on PBS can accept any number of odd devices as cooking tools.

 

She also favored a pink rubber mallet over a metal meat tenderizer. ::P:

 

By all the gods and goddesses of cooking, I miss Julia Child!

Good game last night - and Megan gave us a Superfluous Dire Warning - Agent Blacke, warning us not to trust Drake Argent....

 

I think... with a small amount of massaging, I can turn Blacke into an intelligence asset for the party.

 

I am also beginning to suspect that Argent may end up being one of the Big Bads for the campaign - he is a dragon, but there is no way of telling his age - beyond big and silver, we just don't have the info. (Huge size, which does put an upper and lower limit - but we are still under 10th level, so it would just change how dead we are when/if we fight him.)

 

I am wondering if he helped manipulate events to lead to the Last War - though, given that the King was going nuts...

 

And Blacke informed us of at least one lie that Argent has told us - Blacke did not seek out Drake - it was the other way around. Which means that Drake has access to classified information that should not have been within his grasp.

 

Mmmmm... paranoia! One of my favorite flavors! ::D:

 

Factions known, so far:

Blacke and Seven - pretty sure they want to undo a past mistake

Kytons - I think that they may just be opportunists - somebody opened a door, so they came in and made themselves at home

The refugees from Cyre - I THINK they have ties to Black and Seven.

The Beholder - I think he has just entered the game as a player, but will be back.

 

Factions unknown, so far:

Whoever sent the monsters to attack us in the bar.

Whoever had the Allied mad scientist artificer from Cyre kidnapped. (And we are STILL keeping his rescue a secret. Even from Blacke, let alone Argent.)

 

These two feel like political actions - human (or dwarf, or elf, or even orc) agency. Possibly the same faction, possibly separate.

 

The monster attack may have been a response to Argent's interest in our party - a counter, not a move in its own right.

 

I am so very glad that Megan has been using the film noir that she has been watching! (I had forgotten - I already introduced her to The Third Man... but she agrees with me about the darned zither music. If anyone hasn't seen The Third Man - we can both highly recommend it - and the complaints about the zither music isn't because it is bad - far from it - it is just downright invasive... an ear worm waiting in ambush....)

 

Holy crap! I just realized that Drake Argent is the Fat Man from Maltese Falcon! ::o: Megan has even been trying to do a Sidney Greenstreet voice! :;,;:

 

She did a very nice job of throwing us off the scent when she had us talking to him, naked, in the bathhouse - seeing beautiful young women bathing a naked fat guy was disconcerting....

 

And if he was willing to let us see him in dragon form, that was almost certainly a distraction as well - which brings up the question: What is he hiding that is important enough that revealing that he is a dragon was worthwhile - and what are .the odds that he will then simplify the equation by removing our variable when the time comes?

Uff, moving? That stinks. Hope it's to a better location.

Definitely want to hear how that comes out. 

 

Do you have a list of 50 things you're planning? 

 

 

French Onion soup came out... okay. Not like mum used to make. Need to work on that.
