  1. Unpopular Food Likes/Dislikes: Table for One

    It's not easy to find local honey, which is the type that helps with allergies. If you read your labels carefully, often the honey is sourced elsewhere. However, please buy honey. It's the best way to help the bees. If you haven't heard about the afflictions that bees face, please read up -- buying honey helps the people who want to help the bees.
  2. Cheese: Yay or Nay?

    It's simple to make yourself, if you are so inclined. You can add bacon. ;) Brie is very rich, I find a little goes a long way. At the ennui house, it's served with water crackers. I was once a fan of cheddar, and Cotswold in particular, but now I prefer a lighter cheese.
  3. At my company, they can't hire anyone. The word is out. No one wants to work there. They interview but no one accepts the offers, or, if they do, they are only leveraging a counter-offer from their current employer. I've never seen anything like it.
  4. All Episodes Talk: Just One More Thing

    OOHHH!!! Diabolique just starting on TCM!! Subtitled. Time to turn off the computer.
  5. I admire you. Today I left work thinking that if I were to quit, I'm not sure I would say anything ...just feign amnesia and forget to go back. But I did draft a request to be reassigned to another supervisor.
  6. Jokes!

    A three-year-old boy went with his dad to see a litter of puppies. On returning home, he breathlessly informed his mother, "There were 2 boy puppies and 2 girl puppies." "How did you know?" his mother asked. "Daddy picked them up and looked underneath," he replied. "I think it's printed on the bottom."
  7. Pet Peeves

    I'm developing a pet peeve about so-called "service" animals in people places.

    I believe it's the same dagger. LF gave it to Bran, Bran gave it to Arya, and now Arya gave it to Sansa.
  9. Cheese: Yay or Nay?

    Somewhere in my recent meanderings, I saw a schedule of sorts for brie ... depending on the flavor you like best, you would want to eat it 20 days prior, 10 days prior, or very near the 'sell by' date. The flavor develops fairly quickly.
  10. Cheese: Yay or Nay?

    You can do brie in the microwave, if you like it warm and runny. (Then you don't have to wait for the weekend.)
  11. Oh, I'm familiar with the 10-year rule for resumes. But the drop-down menu was something new to me. I don't remember if I could have skipped the question, but I'm not going back to that site.
  12. Cheese: Yay or Nay?

    I have recently developed a fondness for French brie. Was ambivalent previously. I prefer it at room temperature.
  13. I get the jingle stuck in my head, which is super annoying when I'm trying to sleep at 2 a.m.
  14. Pet Peeves

    No one invites me anywhere, so I don't need a shirt. Saved $12!
  15. It's the faux sincerity that annoys me. She should be reading stories to children at the library.
