    somebody buy my house. i'll throw in all my donnay sticks for free.

    lunch was a subway sub. definitely not banh mi good.

    elephants cook surprisingly well. and yes JRK -- why would anyone choose anything other than quick cook setting. why not make that the only setting and call it "COOK". the only possible explanation is if quick cook takes 50% less time but tastes 50% less tasty.

    I always think that too... is it less tasty?

    Like Louis CK said about tuna:

    thanks for the advice.
    this is a upgrade to a single family house from a 2003 townhouse.
    we are think about putting a bid bcz the schools are higher ranked than the ones we have now. otherwise, wouldnt want to move. I have tennis courts and an adjace playground within 50 steps from my place now.

    zap: rice looks really nice and fluffy. really like the soup. chicken must really taste great. really like the tomatoes. did u make any sauce to dip the chicken in? nice and colorful. definitely wifey approved since it has veggies.

    we want to move more south between 495 and 270. but heard property value going up so have to decide soon.

    I bought the new house at a bad time, but I sold the old one at a good time. The mortgage on your primary house is kind of like funny money. As long as you aren't over-extended on the monthly payment, none of it really matters until you cash out and rent. And no, I still haven't fixed the brake on the machine yet. I only string once a month or so, but Ill try tinkering with it again next time.

    In somewhat related news, I am starting to fall out of love with Genesis Typhoon though. Feels amazing the first 6 hours, then it seems to stretch too much and turn your racquet into a rocket launcher. I have BHB7 in my other racquet and I'm liking that so far. I have a set of MSV Focus Hex that Ill put in next, and Ill restring one with Black Magic again too. I liked the Black Magic a lot, but I had my best two matches recently with the BHB7, so Ill need a side by side comparison.

    Had Curry Place on Monday.
    already fulfilled my buffet quota for the week.
    Probably subways or another cardboard sandwich place.

    In Indiana high school news, the Bloomington South girls' basketball team beat Arlington High 107-2. "Daffy" Martha Douglas led Arlington with 2 points, and Shirley "Hedgehog Hands" Flatley had one assist after bouncing the ball off Douglas's face and into the basket.

    Wow! Missed out on the rice cooker talk. We have some plain, no-name brand cooker my wife picked up from Macy's to replace the plain, no-name cooker she had in college. Works well enough, even with brown rice.

    Tried making Kale chips last night. Not bad. I added too much salt though. Reminded me of dried seaweed.

    Having a tough day, kiddos woke up around 10 and wouldn't go back down till 12:30am - yawn....

    ----
    CB- I read something about Blops2 that if you quit too many times in the middle of a match, the implement a short term ban on MP play? I'm screwed, haven't played much, but when I do, I quit mid game in about 2 out of 10 matches. I get banned and Blops2 may get traded in.

    even if it's a 1000 calories... (okay maybe not 1000 calories) but definitely worth every bite. I guess I will always be a pork fan. oink oink.

    Nothing wrong with pork. Pork loin and Canadian bacon are actually low in fat. It's the other stuff that will get you.

    Wonder if a McRib even qualifies as meat? ;)

    yes I read about it too and experienced it. My daughter woke up too many times and I had to quit when it first started. After about quitting 10x in a role, I got a system msg that I cant connect for 10 minutes.
    Ever since then, I've done the same but instead of quitting, I just left it alone and let the server kick me out. I haven't had any issues then. I guess it's treated like a bad connection, maybe? It's not good for my stats, but I play just to play.

    It's sad, last night, some whinny kid was making fun of me saying my stats suck and I had more deathes than kills. Who would of thought? I thought it's always the older kids that bullies the younger ones? And not the other way around. Oh the times have changed.

    Oh, so you have to do consecutive quits. I'll keep on eye on it. Haven't gotten a mini ban yet.

    Whinny kids are why there's a mute button. Eff the stats, play for fun.

    That's actually pretty mild. Some of the racist and homophobic crap that people say while playing is one of of the reasons I skipped MW3. BF3 usually have a more adult community and you can only talk to people in your 4 man squad so you get less of that crap. Also K/D is less important in BF3 since it's objective based.

    BTW- How do you like the Kinect? Been thinking of picking one up for my daughter this Christmas. Only downside is the risk of being forced to share my xbox - LOL!

    No kidding. Based on the way I was playing. I probably played better while chugging one down.

    Kinect is good, highly recommend if your daughter is over 4 yrs old. At least for my kid, the Kinect had a hard time picking up smaller folks due to the distancing between the floor and the limbs (I was reading somewhere)

    They got a bunch of cool games now especially if your kid likes to see him or herself on tv. They got one where they take an image of them and use the image to fight monsters and ninjas.
    Another one which is about your kid being a princess doing princess stuff. etc etc.

    Only thing is new xbox is coming sometime later in early 2013. So I am not sure when the xbox is going to sunset? Only other concern is possible privacy issues? (i.e. can someone hack into your kinect and watch you and make u look at annoying commercials based on your reactions?)

    Last time I saw him, he was doing okay. But I haven't seen him in a while. He restrung my sticks about a month ago. I still think he's considering a move to FL.

    Saw on article about Verizon patenting a Kinect like device that would read your body language and combine it with what you're watching to deliver customized commercials (http://www.pcworld.com/article/2018940/verizon-patents-dvr-that-tracks-your-actions.html). Could happen, but I'm thinking maybe not with this generation of hardware and plus I would forsee people trying to sue for invasion of privacy.

    New Xbox may be soon, but I'd prob wait at least a year before I consider a next gen console. Besides looks like Valve may get into the game with a Linux based Steam Box, could be interesting.

    Stuck in Florida sounds so negative.

    I'm going to try a blue ribbon tonight in your honor. Makes me think, what's a quick dinner you can incorporate beer into?

    LOL. yeah, I wouldn't mind being stuck there at all.

    Pabst is great to cook with as well. Made a beer can chicken on the grill a couple of weeks ago. Drank half the can and I used a alum foil to wrap the chicken and beer with. Unwrapped the last 15 minutes. and good to go. Makes the chicken nice and moist.

    Paulman, that's some yummy looking grub! Are those hot pepper there? How are you going to be cooking the meat? The beef looks browned really well. It's going to caramelized very well.

    Take a look at the link I posted. Yes, hot peppers indeed - sliced jalapenos. The chuck starts out getting smoked and then covered and slow roasted in the pan with the veggies a la pulled pork (uhh beef). Best part - the sauce mix is stout based...haha So you use 1 Guiness stout bottle for the recipe and while you're cooking this, you get to enjoy the other 5 bottles of Guinness! :twisted:

    Yeah I hide those BF3 stats and also delete the weekly updates from Xbox which tell you how many hours you spent playing a game each week.

    BTW - if you bought premium you could have done a stats reset....

    You playing on PC or xbox?
