  1. Re: What Fantasy/Sci-Fi book have you just finished? Please rate it... Stephen hunt's The Court of the Air and the Kingdom beyond the waves are great sf / steampunk. Highly recommended.
  2. Re: Foods for those that just don't care anymore Used to hate pineapple on pizza, then tried it from our regular go-to place (Vocellis) and *liked* it! Never thought I'd say that but there you go.
  3. Re: Foods for those that just don't care anymore I've always liked that image...
  4. Re: What Fantasy/Sci-Fi book have you just finished? Please rate it... Reading Changes now. Got it yesterday, half-way through (woulda probably finished it last night, but the previous night was 4 hours of sleep). Daughter, not son, and that's all I'll say now. AND he's planned the series out to 20 books. My only irritation will be waiting another year (probably) for the next one!
  5. Re: Foods for those that just don't care anymore Or perhaps "Cannibal - the Musical". Have a shpadoinkle day! Also, the wife and I typically pan-fry bacon. Mmmm bacon. She also made bacon chocolate chip cookies recently. Terrific.
  6. Re: What Fantasy/Sci-Fi book have you just finished? Please rate it... ... bought it but haven't read it yet (Turn Coat). 1) Rereading Callahan's Con by Spider Robinson. 2) Playing LOTRO entirely too much. The MMO siren song has been too strong so far.
  7. Re: What Fantasy/Sci-Fi book have you just finished? Please rate it... Next one on the agenda: the new Harry Dresden book, which is out next week.
  8. Re: The cranky thread Marathon (curse them) in Huntley Illinois (address available if anyone lives nearby) sold us E85 Ethanol instead of Regular 87 (or whatever) octane gasoline. In case you don't know what this means, it means that the fuel tank has to be drained and everything sucked out of the fuel system, it's great to put E85 into flex-fuel vehicles... and a Very Bad Idea to put it into normal cars. Maybe not as bad as regular into diesel but similar. Hopefully the car isn't permanently damaged. So... $530 dollar dealership bill, $150 tow, and 2 vacation days (each) lost, apparently we may be able to get our money back for the gas, dealership repairs and tow (and apparently a number of others got smacked by this) ... but... I will Never, Ever, Ever purchase anything at any Marathon again. Whether it's a franchise owner or supplier who screwed up, I don't care. I plan to trash the company to anyone who will listen. It may have been a simple mistake, but... I'm NOT happy. This is Not Cool. We stalled out - DEAD engine - just off the interstate, after our power steering died ON the interstate. NOT COOL with a 14-month old in the car. Decent weather for Chicagoland in winter though (rainy and 60 degrees ... in December?!?). Note, we weren't just stupid: It was labelled as regular gas. We have set some investigators onto them, and hope to set more. But I want to say it again, CURSE THEM. Fortunately, it's dead at both our workplaces, and 2 extra vacation days aren't a big deal (aside from, y'know, not getting to use them on something else, which blows). Plus side, though, sorta... grampa FINALLY spent some time with our daughter, in the extra two days we spent there... after he was mostly not present for the week we were there (and were supposed to be there). He's not taking to retirement all that well.
  9. Re: The cranky thread 13 year old cat... with diabetes. Not really cranky so much as sad, since we've pretty much decided to put her down. Two daily injections and multiple glucose tests... um, no. She's a pet, and she's loved, but... she's a pet. I'll miss her, but... she was always pretty zen and standoffish most of the time, only coming by for attention once or twice a week... sometimes less than that. She was good about coming by when we were upset, though. House cat. Not a bad life for a former prison cat, pretty good run all things considered.
  10. Re: The cranky thread I've said it before and I'll say it again: being sick sucks. I generally seem to do pretty well with not getting sick, wife and kid were ill for 3 weeks before I got it... now I just feel ick.
  11. Re: What Have You Watched Recently? I've been watching True Blood with my wife. Creepy stuff, but well-acted. The books it is based on are decent as well.
  12. Re: What Fantasy/Sci-Fi book have you just finished? Please rate it... The Scent of Shadows, by Vickie Pettersson. Not bad for urban 'superhero'/metahuman fantasy, with a Zodiac theme. Not as enjoyable as the Dresden Files, but a bit heavier than "Kitty and the Midnight Hour".
  13. Re: City of Heroes - Online Hero Game Whee! Issue 12 is live!
  14. Re: Order of the Stick Yeah. Same. And I don't cry at much.
  15. Re: What Have You Watched Recently? Shoot 'Em Up worth seeing? I rather want to go... I liked Owen in Sin City, and then there's Monica Belluci.
