Re: Petty annoyances

Even offshore contract call center people are like "I wonder if that subsistence farming gig is still available?" I could never get over the cognitive disconnect back in the day. In the 90s the narrative was "call center jobs are TERRIBLE. They're just THE WORST. If you ever get a job at one you'll...

Re: Food

Finished up the ham we had in the freezer from our half-pig. Reminded again ham doesn't have to be a bland fluffy meat-marshmallow. It *can* be delicious and meaty.

I am trying to enjoy this Seattle-Kansas City ballgame but a) Kansas City's coach looks too much like my high school football coach and b) every time I see this logo as NFL sponsors my soul dies a little:

Unlike all the other cuts, the butcher wrap in in paper with the part name stamped on it. I know its a lon...

Grilled a ribeye steak and had it with a spinach salad and Templeton Rye and refreshing mexican-style lager. Wife is out of town so I finally had a chance to properly binge Rick and Morty season 3 that showed up on Hulu a while ago.
