The TVM has breakfast!!!!111

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

I think Tooks caused this snow storm, by just mentioning it... :Q
We have been watching clips of dogs rolling in the snow. Wish I could do that. It's barely 8am and I'm already sweating.

It was all I could do not to go get myself a very large pizza today.

I'm trying to cut back on the pig out food, although I'll probably indulge (somewhat) over the weekend.

I made some Chicken Paprika today. Not bad.

Well, i survived the last 3 days of temperatures over 40+ (or approx 109F) in Sydney. Only because of air con at shopping centres and kind friends with offers of their cool homes and pools. Did I mention I HATE summer??? If you ever visit Oz, don't come in February unless you want your internal organs cooked.

At least you don't have to go back to work, Calma. :D

Here is my recipe, by the way:

Chicken Paprika

2 ½ lb chicken
1 T Hungarian paprika (I used about 2T)
3 T shortening
1 c. chopped onions
2 cloves minced garlic
2 c chicken broth
½ c sour cream (I also used ½ c heavy cream)
2 T flour (I used about 1/4 cup)

Melt shortening in large skillet over medium heat – sauté onions until translucent. Add garlic and cook a minute or two. Remove from heat and add paprika, mixing well and make sure it does not burn. Rinse and pat dry the chicken. Season with salt/pepper if desired and add to skillet, mixing well to coat chicken with paprika mix. Return skillet to stove, add about 1 cup broth, enough to keep chicken from burning. Bring to boil and cover and simmer for about 30 minutes, until chicken is tender.

When done, remove chicken from skillet. Add remaining broth to skillet. In a small bowl, mix the sour cream (and heavy cream) and flour. Add some warm gravy from the skillet. Put it all back in the skillet and mix well. Return chicken to the skillet and heat through, but do not boil. Serve with dumplings or wide noodles.




nl, I do not envy you. I will NEVER come visit you in February!!!! Not if it gets that hot. :shock:

Breakfast. :D

For her annual check up.

She'll probably go into hiding if she suspects you might just be thinking about a vet visit.

'sup?

I couldn't figure out why no one was posting, I had no notifications.

Decided to go back through my email...and found the link I forgot to click... :roll:

Story: so sorry to hear about your work problems. :( And singleness :( But I hope the new job possibilities work out!

Super bowl...so disappointing. I'm really beginning to believe my mom is right...it's fixed. ;)

Word of the day...

Sward.

noun.

1 : a portion of ground covered with grass

2 : the grassy surface of land

Example:
"It was a blind and despairing rush by the collection of men in dusty and tattered blue, over a green sward and under a sapphire sky, toward a fence, dimly outlined in smoke, from behind which spluttered the fierce rifles of enemies." — Stephen Crane, The Red Badge of Courage, 1895

Sward sprouted from the Old English sweard or swearth, meaning "skin" or "rind." It was originally used as a term for the skin of the body before being extended to another surface—that of the earth's. The word's specific grassy sense dates back more than 500 years, but it rarely crops up in contemporary writing. The term, however, has been planted in a number of old novels, such as in this quote from Thomas Hardy's Tess of the d'Urbervilles: "The sun was so near the ground, and the sward so flat, that the shadows of Clare and Tess would stretch a quarter of a mile ahead of them...."


There... you all learned something today. :D

Hey all,

My work situation has been sorted out. I've stayed at my current job, with a nice pay raise. Could have leveraged the supervisor position but I've seen it from the inside and decided that it made more sense to get more money with less responsibility while doing what I actually like doing. They've promised to develop my current title into something more significant and to give me a small team of my own to run.

Next on my to-do list- moving to a bigger apartment, now that I can afford one.
"...Their aim in war with Germany is nothing more, nothing less than extermination of Hitlerism... There is absolutely no justification for this kind of war. The ideology of Hitlerism, just like any other ideological system, can be accepted or rejected, this is a matter of political views. But everyone grasps, that an ideology can not be exterminated by force, must not be finished off with a war.” - Vyacheslav Molotov, ""On the Foreign Policy of the Soviet Union", 31 October 1939

Congratulations, ST!!
Way to negotiate a better position.
Don't blame you for not accepting a supervisor position.
I've been one and it's not all it's cracked up to be.
Such a headache.

I shall echo Calma regarding the supervisor thingy.... :P

So...we have spring like weather this weekend. I though Phil said 6 more weeks of winter? I suspect we will get 84 inches on snow on April 1st.

Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening, All!

Today I get to wrestle my cat into her carrier
For her trip to the vet.
Just her yearly exam.
But Pawsha will not be a happy kitty
And will let me and my babyman know about it
And rather loudly at that.


Hope all in the U.S. are enjoying the three day weekend.

Later.
