Re: Full Disclosure discussion section

Dangit, I should have suggested that Hew kissing Millicent at the party should have gotten a standing ovation... As to the culture thing, there have been - and probably still are - areas of British society where Lady Alexander's suggestion that Tirion, a mere housekeeper, should dispense with titles...

As for the "Real" Al, while it was quite interesting, I felt that the buildup lead to a bit of a letdown... I half expected to not only have rose from poorer ranks, but to have led a life of (small) crime, Well, he falsified his age on the enlistment paperwork so he could enlist with parental conse...

Re: More Stuff

Having made it both ways, I prefer the Hungarian approach. But it can be hard to find affordable paprika in that quantity in the US - try stores that cater to restaurants! Yeah. You can pay $4-$5 for a single small bottle of an ounce or two of the stuff at a supermarket, or you can pay about $2.50/...

Re: More Stuff

Americans also have a weird compulsion to throw macaroni noodles and ground beef into goulash. I agree about the weird compulsion to throw pasta into everything*. However, the goulash recipes I've found all call for beef cut into small pieces, and ground beef certainly is in small pieces... * My la...

Re: More Stuff

Short of that sort of revelation, I'd think that some variant of a Hungarian goulash (gulyás) would probably work with either... stew them up with potatoes, sweet peppers, tomatoes, onions, maybe a bit of garlic, and whatever other veggies come to mind. Bigos (a Polish hunter's stew) might also be ...

Re: Be Quiet 2019-11-11

I wonder if the so called alternate time lines are just memories of previous play throughs of the main time line during the calendar deal. We know there were 10's of thousands of play throughs before the one shown. So the flow of time may not match exactly giving us younger Barbra and an older Mind...

“Hardly. North again, unless you want to go to the circus instead.” As he said that, he pointed to a poster that had been plastered onto the façade of a closed shop. “No. HELL no.

This was very difficult to write and write well. The darts bit, on the other hand, was just sheer joy. I was eagerly reading it as it rolled up on the screen...the muses were that strong.
Oh, I LOVE it when the spirit grabs hold and I have to keep typing to find out what happens next!

Lesser matters, such as which if any of her schoolmates is going to be eaten by a grue, don't seem to be at the forefront of her concern right now. Just don't ever be alone in the dark. Being with the grue in the dark is fine, you're perfectly safe... as long as nobody turns on a light or opens the...

Then there's the Texan visiting a farm in Massachusetts...

"How much land y'all workin'?"

"Forty acres."

"That all? My ranch, I can get in my truck and drive all day, and still not get to the other side of it."

"Yeah, I had a truck like that once."

The current rash (heh) of bed bug infestations is driven largely by the fact that bed bugs have adapted/evolved resistance to a lot of insecticides. I have no reason to believe that the same thing wouldn't have happened, if exterminators had continued using DDT. I once read (can't find it again, or...

Re: More Stuff

Do your neighborhood recyclers a favor: take a broad tip felt pen and write "BEDBUGS" in large letters on both sides of the bags you put the mattress and box spring in.
