Timid Goddess: Diocletian's Last Cabbage: Timid Goddess: Diocletian's Last Cabbage: Question - is there such a thing as Brussels Sprouts soup?

Immediately thought A) NO!
and B) Ruhlman's Cream of Anything soup, simmer 1 cup of anything, in this case Brussels sprouts in 1 cup of broth or water.  Add 1 cup dairy and a slurry of 1 tablespoon of cornstarch, blend and/or strain if desired.

That actually sounds good, gonna have to try it.

If it turns out good, will have to patent recipe.  I'll cut you in for 60%.

As long as you don't try to give me 60% of the soup.  Mom kinda ruined the idea of even trying them by frequently cooking them in vinegar, not a scent I found appetizing at all!  I am not certain I have the slurry right, might be a teaspoon or a tablespoon per two cups of cooked soup.  Too much cornstarch, it will be pudding, not enough will be too thin to be a good cream of soup.

Obviously, taste and adjust until delicious.


If it's a moneymaker, I'll share the maker with you.  With any luck, we'll have enough money to share that as well.  Thanks for your ideas everbuddy!

Timid Goddess: Real Women Drink Akvavit: Timid Goddess: A small windfall means we will have shelter from when we have to leave the house til we have a new place.  Spouse has been busy arranging a foster or new home for the two cats as well as transport there.  Still a LOT of uncertainty...

I remember the Invasion, wanted to meet Alien, but she didn't stop close enough.  I might have still been lurking much of the time back then.

I was thinking about you the other  day! I'm glad things are moving in a positive direction even if they are far from ideal. I totally get the uncertainty thing - I HATE uncertainty if I have no control over anything. I can scarcely imagine how hard it must  be even with help. I'd be losing my damn mind on an hourly basis, at least.

Letting of the things we can't control really is hard. For some reason phrasing it that way never really worked for me at all. Then I learned about stoicism and the Stoic philosphers and for some unfathomable reason, that helped. The deal there is that while I may not be able to control some things going on around me or that directly impact me and my life, I can control how I react to them. So that's what I try to do.

It's not easy. It's not fun, because UNCERTAINTY SUCKS. But I do try to manage my reactions to uncertainty, to find if not a positive, then a tolerable - and then run with it, even if it makes me look like a damn loon. I already feel like one a lot of the time, so why not go for the full look too, right? ;-)

I wish there was something I could do to help you guys in a real, meaningful way. I truly do. I hope that when I am well enough to travel again that if I make it out near you I have the opportunity to bring a little housewarming gift, because everything got better and you're well settled. I hope that's reality sooner rather than later.

Squishy hugz all around! Be sure and give some to the Little Gas Molecule for us! She's pretty tough to be going through all this so gracefully. She deserves mad props for it - as you do for giving ...

The Little Gas Molecule trusts Daddy when he says everything will be fine... eventually.  We are seeing the stress in the "clingyness", aways with Daddy, Mommy or both.  Then there is being quicker to frustration than "normal".  Not that any of us are what would be considered within "normal" by typical people.

I tend toward complete denial even though I am aware of it to minimize my stress/distress levels.  Which is why I am waking up once or twice a night when I'm not taking antihistamines in the evening.  Taking an hour or more to fall asleep is "normal", well for me and the LGM, at any rate.

We will make it through this... somehow.

*I believe that "normal" is a myth perpetrated by the majority of individuals with "normal", aka typical, neurochemistry.


You're right about "normal".

I have a book around here somewhere called "Neurotribes" that was really good. It's basically all "hey - we're all different/ neurodiverse, so let's deal" while leaning heavily into autism to educate and enlighten. I highly recommend it to everyone and if I ever find it again and you want to read it, let me know. I'll happily bundle it up and send it out.

Any Caturdayers that come to, or close to, Binghamton get the first round on me.

And I'll kick in a couple hundred dollars on the hotel costs (won't get much at our prices).

Real Women Drink Akvavit: groppet: Ok I need to go home the Karen in garnishment has tripled up on the Karen today and she isn't even here.
[Fark user image 580x725]

I don't know how some of you do it. I cannot work in office environments. I simply cannot. I like being able to "check the back" when someone is being difficult and then simply not return. Good luck finding me back there. I actually fit inside some of those back stock cubbies.  Guess how I know this?

You can't do that in an office, because they assign you somewhere you are  supposed to be, like all the time. Then you have to ....sit there. Sit and stay still. There is probably work involved as well, as if sitting and staying still and dealing with Karen's BS isn't work enough. *ugh* NO THANK  YOU.

Doesn't your Karen have some vacation time coming up or something? She could use a break. Doesn't it  seem like she could use a break?

Well she just karened me again arrrrrrrrgh! I was helping the training people get out a big job so of course I get emails from her about needing something. It was my fault but I hate being rushed so I screwed up the delivery date from Sat to Mon and she hates getting things on Mondays. So I had to fix it run to another building to slap the label on and boom done. At least she can't hurt me at home...........yet.

Real Women Drink Akvavit: ProcrastinationStation: I still like the name Flat Akvavit  :)

Y'all, I think its Caturday MAGIC that the anniversary of the Alien Tour happens right as RWDA is recovering from her own cancer battles.

What better encouragement to recover than seeing the fun that Caturday can put together?
We've (well *you*, I wasn't active then) have done it once.... who's to day we can't do it again?

Akvavit across the country mabye?

Actually, I *am* planning on traveling and seeing and doing and finding new, interesting places to drink coffee and chill (and talk to people I do not know and ask them "but why?" with an open heart and mind, as I tend to do) I am going to attempt to visit some of the places Flatvavit has been. She's forward recon, a term I use to make our  ex-military types happy cuz that tells them I do pay attention. :-)

When I am well enough to hit the road and just GO, I'll start with short trips, close to home. As I improve and my financial situation starts to get better, but hopefully before I have any recurrence of my cancer (if I am indeed declared NED/remission), I will make it further away and for longer periods of time.

The reality is that even if I am NED (no evidence of disease) by summer, my lifespan has most likely been dramatically shortened. For this reason I am not entirely sure it is worth my time to go back to working two jobs - I am pretty sure it is NOT - when there is still so much to go and see and experience. I'll be working one job, perhaps even only part time (OMGs! that is a hell of a  change for me!) and focusing my energy and my time on having those experiences.

I may also figure out how to throw something online so everyone can come with me. I know nothing about blogs or websites and whatnot, but I do know it's more fun to have adventures if you can share them with others!

Would I make a good travel writer? No. Could I make a halfway decent experience writer? You betcha! So let's go have some experiences and whatnot while we can! ...


OK... Flatvavit is funny. Flat Akvavit sounded... WRONG.

Depends on the office. For software development... depends on the role. I am usually up, about, talking to others, having meetings, then some time at my desk. Analysis requires talking to people. However, I LIKE being left alone and not having people around. Working from home has been WONDERFUL for me.

/no, no, the pounding, cutting, yelling, tromping in and out, and sounds of things breaking aren't damaging my calm. Why do you ask?

SpaceMonkey-66: Well, its been another crazy week, hope everyone is doing well.  Hard to have emergency eye surgery for two retinal tears monday.  Was hosting a zoom presentation last friday, we are ditching Solarwinds for our IT shop and an replacing it with Microsoft SCOM.  About halfway through, in my right eye, I saw exactly what you'd see if you dropped a drop of ink into a glass.  But, it was blood from a burst blood vessel.  As mentioned, my retina tore in two places.  Should heal though and the beaucoup specks/floaters in my eye should go away in a few weeks.  Something ✝🕉 told me to get it checked out fast, glad I did.

Bertha. (The F100, if u don't know) is getting her side pipes removed today as one of them blew a baffle straight out the back.  End of an era, they've been on there since 1976.  Decided to drop in MagnaFlows and exiting in front of rear wheels with multiple chrome tips per side.  Should look pretty good.  Nice that it looks like the stim checks we are getting next week should cover it.

Got Bertha back about a half hour ago, sure looks different and sounds great.  We want with the Flowmasters.  Has a nice throaty growl that sounds really nice.  The double tips whistle a tad at low rpm, but that'll go away as time progresses.   Mrs SM-66 really loves it, we don't have to shout anymore to hear each other. ✝☮🕉
