Cheese and conversation [Nov. 23rd, 2008|09:33 pm]

Drove up to Longmont to go to the cheese shop and hang out with Sarah this afternoon. I got some Cotswold (for Greg), some Fontina, and some goatsmilk Brie. I'm not usually big on goat cheeses, but I really like the Brie. I'm glad I decided to experiment a little. Lots of lovely conversation as well.

At D&D last night, we managed to level up, get some new equipment, and walk from one town almost to the next. Yeah, we weren't real focused. But it was entertaining! What do you think the odds are that "Little Black Sambo" would be independently mentioned in both conversations? Because it was.

I have discovered downloaded TV, so I'm watching Chuck and Life On Mars (UK), and season 2 of The Big Bang Theory. Woo!

Yup. It's about like that.

Brie's fantastic stuff, but I'm an even bigger fan of Camembert! Similar texture, but the taste is a bit more...mellow.

Sorry I missed it. I has the plague (Latverian Lung Pox, I believe).

We missed you. but, as the good doctor said, we didn't do much. We traveled.

As it seems your posts bring up the tangential responses...
Last visit home my dad offers me some ice cream with caramel sauce. I'm all about the caramel, so I get all excited, until I hold the bowl and exclaim, "This ice cream smells like feet!" Which of course turned me off the idea of it immediately. I looked at the jar while my parents snickered like they were both ten, and saw the caramel sauce was made with goat's milk.

Goat's milk - good for cheese, makes caramel smell like feet.

Hope you're still enjoying the Chuck.

"You are attacked by Orcs."
"Okay. I'm going to have them chase me around the base of this tree."
*rolls dice*
"The Orcs have turned into butter!"

That's how Sambo kills the tigers who want to eat him up. I mean, how amazing is he? Kills a wodge of tigers without so much as throwing a punch AND brings home a jar of tiger butter to feed his family. He's been my hero since I was 3.

Oh God going to hell for admiring a racist caricature but TIGERS! BUTTER!

So one of the really interesting things about LBS is that if you take out the author's illustrations and change the characters' names to something a little less sketchy? Apparently it ceases to be racist. Like, at all. It's all in the packaging, not in the actual content. (Or so it was asserted in the conversation.)

So no hell for you, ha-HA!

Good old Indian folktales, yes. And the tigers not only turn into butter, they turn into ghee, which is clarified butter.
