Twitter Updates for 2008-10-18

  • Ordered from Newegg yesterday, UPS 3 day. Shipped from NJ this AM. Arrived here in MA sometime during the day. Amazing! #
  • Just thought of a great slogan for a shirt or such: “Nehemiah Scudder Was a Democrat.” #
  • Inspired by the move to have people prosecuted for noting apparent voter fraud. #
  • Poor kids had to put up with leftover pot roast turned into hash for supper. Plus cauliflower, mixed veggies, bread & butter, & ketchup. #
  • There was a lot of dipping of bread in ketchup. #
  • Ended up wikisurfing when I really needed to load the dishwasher. Guess I should stop reading about music theory etc. & do that soon… #
  • Forgot to set VCR to record Life. Silly TV execs, putting it in the death slot rather than, say, after Heroes for a perfect trio Monday. #
  • A shame the bailout happened too close to the election for an effective movement to replace 100% of Congress in anti-incumbant tsunami. #
  • Just remembered to put The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress where Deb will remember to take it in AM to loan to her boyfriend at work. #
  • He’s a geek but has never read any Heinlein. That seemed like a good launching point. #
  • @tonykatz Actually, the Friday death slot may be more applicable to Fox, so famous for using it as such, than NBC. Homicide was great… #
  • @tonykatz Never saw a lot of episodes, but it was amazing. Was thinking the other day about the one with the doomed guy in subway platform. #
  • Should see if Homicide is on Hulu. #
  • I recall Andre Braugher being especially notable. #
  • @mtpolitics @seanhackbarth Nobody should EVER be introduced via Stranger in a Strange Land. #
  • From wikisurfing to IMDB browsing like some kind of long haired, leaping gnome or something. Shiny thing! Well, if the virtual could gleam. #
  • @FroynLaven Hey, I’m not the one who only just discovered Firefly. Even if I didn’t watch it while it was on in Jessica Alba’s slot. #
  • @FroynLaven No amount of Nic’s Joss Whedon fangirl urging worked. It took Serenity to bring me to Firefly. #
  • Curse Fox’s sudden but inevitable betrayal! #
  • We even have a beta version Jayne Hat that Deb made. And truly ugly pictures of an unshaven, grungy me trying it on, somewhere, buried. #
  • Henry could have let me sleep later. Really. #
  • 42 Out. That would explain why it’s cold in here even with windows closed. #
  • Contemplating turning one of these pumpkins into bread, maybe trying no-egg recipe. #
  • @sharone75 RE the TV tweets last night & death slot? I assume they will cancel Life, based in slot, rumor, quality, arc resolution speed. #
  • Sadie learned “hot” by sticking hand in my coffee before she was a year old. Val seemed to take our word for it, oddly, or I forget… #
  • Henry learned hot from a running light bulb. Henry learned hot from a running light bulb. Henry learned… ? #
  • I seem to recall he touched the inside of the oven door once too. He’s the first kid to be so fascinated with the stove. Burner knobs, cool! #
  • @jimhill Oh, so cute! And yeah, boxes are cool. Amazing what else becomes toys preferred over real toys. #
  • Right. Chicken waiting in microwave. Need to check pumpkin in oven. Need to look up egg subs again, may try eggless pumpkin bread. #
  • And need to finish niece’s computer! Take advantage of kids being happy-ish and occupied. #
  • You know what was a good show that was canceled pronto? Cupid. #
  • Some of the stuff that might be best egg subs for us I don’t have on hand. #
  • @listener42 Had this been an actual tweetmergency, something something. This completes the test of the tweetmergency blogcast system. #
  • Tired of Val saying “I’m a happy girl” ad nauseum, but suppose it’d be wrong to teach her to say she’s depressive. #
  • Reading about the role of eggs in cooking versus appropriate substitutions. #
  • Heh. Apparently most sites that mention egg subs are in the employ of something called Ener-G. #
  • baby climbed on me to nap as I was figuring out standard egg sub for pumpkin bread seems to be apple sauce + baking powder #
  • May not have to say it, but I love Dusty Springfield. #
  • Cafeteria open for second lunch shift. Chicken for me and newly awake baby. #
  • One could make a killing using Gay Deceiver to import additional seasons of good series canceled here but not in some nearby reality. #
  • Latest poll of registered voters in Ohio puts Obama ahead of McCain 65 to 45 percent… #
  • @jefferyharrell Mmmm… Bacon bits. Or even whole. #
  • It’s weird. I boil chicken breast to have for chicken salad & the kids act like plain boiled chicken is best thing ever. #
  • OK, where was I? Applesauce is made so I can use it to replace egg. Ah, came in here to research cream or tartar… #
  • Since the pumpkin bread batter had no egg, I tasted it. If the baking part works fine, holy cow! #
  • Net change to my recipe to make up for eggs was apple sauce, little extra oil, flour, & baking soda, dash cream of tartar. #
  • @PhillyMac_Chat I wish I had the skills to be a personal chef. Which would probably be better than restaurant work, actually. #
  • @PhillyMac_Chat If this were 20 years ago & my proclivities had evidenced, culinary school might have been in order. #
  • My hands smell marvelously like nutmeg and ginger. Ginger is my secret addition, on top of nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice. Cleanup time… #
  • @PhillyMac_Chat Guy in my bldg in Quincy in 2003 was a chef working on becoming a teacher to leave the grind. #
  • Too moist. Which is the prob I had when I made pumpkin bread using butternut. Tasty, but almost custardy rather than bready. #
  • @deguspice Ooh, that must be even better than the Heinz I know and love. #
  • Don’t feel like erranding now, but it’ll just be half hour or so and back. #
  • Must control urge to buy more than 1 thing in Hannaford… #
  • More coffee sounds good. Maybe another bite of pumpkin bread. One loaf is all but gone already. #
