Hit the Mother Road

Sorry for the silence the last few days. I’ve been on the road meeting a few new friends.


I did not have a sweet ride like Chuck here, but I still got where I had to go.

Quick, delicious, random

Oh crap. You somehow got stuck in the Thyme Cube while planning your Thanksgiving dinner menu, and you forgot all about shopping for food. It’s really down to the wire now. What are you going to do?

The traditional popcorn/pretzels/jelly beans/toast/whipped cream feast is too elaborate to pull together in such a short amount of time, and nobody was fooled by the papercraft turkey last year. Crap crap crap.

Okay, let’s pull it together. Maybe the Random Recipe Generator can help:

Chocolate Tart
Serves 1

You will need:

  • 1 lamb chops
  • 10g chocolate
  • 50ml tabasco sauce


  1. slice the chocolate
  2. grind the chocolate
  3. throw the chocolate away
  4. microwave the tabasco sauce
  5. rinse the lamb chops
  6. serve piping hot


Once again, the Random Recipe Generator has saved your ass.

Les Arachides

The following cartoon is from a book I stole from my high school’s unused book repository many years ago (so it wasn’t really stealing); the book is a foreign translation of the comic strips contained in You Can Do It, Charlie Brown. This particular strip works so perfectly in French that it makes me think Charles Schulz should have just cut out the middle man and written all of the Peanuts strips en français:

Ah, Sally. L’ennui existentiel. But even if it does not amuse you, take good care of this balloon. It is your only friend.
