Bring on the funny

John Scalzi has a series of election-related posts up. I'll excerpt from #4, just to whet your appetite:


Election List IV: The Things I Think About As I Stare At This Picture of Joe Biden

1. It looks like doll hair.

2. Men shouldn’t botox.
...

10. It still looks like doll hair.

There's so much more relish. Go and laugh your ass off.

Herewith is my rebuttal

Over at HotAir, Allah links to another bit of excretion by Kathleen Parker. My response to her and her like-minded cohorts is worth 1000 words:

Update: Looking at my referrer logs, I've apparently been the recipient of a Rachellanche. Very cool. And thanks to all who've shown up. Hopefully you won't permanently ban my site from your browser.

Back to basics

While I have an interest in how this election plays out, I think that it's time to return to my second love: brewing beer. Physics, of course, is my first love, which is why, of course, I had to pick a second love that wasn't a person. Lookin' for love in all the wrong places? Well, the physics department is one of those wrong places.

Anyway. When last I started on my brewing your first beer series, I ended with Brew Day. I-

Okay, it's been 3 years. Bite me.

- never got around to bottling your beer. That will be my next post, which post will pop up before election day. So far as you know, anyway.

In the interim, I leave you with a picture that proves there is a God:

I really need to make shirt out of that image.

I'm in hell

It's not awful that EW listed the 25 cheesiest action shows of all time. What's awful is that I actually watched most of them. Excerpt:


JACK OF ALL TRADES (2000-2001)
STARRING Bruce Campbell

PREMISE The Evil Dead veteran plays an American agent during the 1800s who's sent to the South Pacific to help a British spy (Angela Dotchin) guard against Napoleon's naval advances.

REDEEMING QUALITIES As always, Bruce's chin. And the brilliance of casting Verne Troyer as Bonaparte.

Sad news

I noticed the awful news about Dean Barnett's death just minutes after Bill Kristol posted it over at the Weekly Standard. While it might sound strange to say, since I never had the opportunity to meet him, I will miss Dean. A lot. He was funny, insightful and full of life, notwithstanding- or maybe because of- the lifelong illness which finally claimed his life.

Go here to read some tributes to Dean from his friends and colleagues. Go here to purchase and read a funny and inspiring book: "The Plucky Smart Kid with the Fatal Disease: A Life with Cystic Fibrosis". And go here to give money to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, if you're so inclined.

Public service announcement

For the 3rd or 4th year in a row (I'm too lazy to check), I'm posting a PSA for the Great American Smokeout, which will occur on November 20 this year.

More information found here, although it appears as though the date still refers to 2007.

Update: And Bill gets into the act as well.

Halloween humor (repost)

Don't hate me because I'm beautiful:

A man was walking home alone late one foggy night, when behind him he hears:

BUMP...

BUMP...

BUMP...

Walking faster, he looks back and through the fog he makes out the image of an upright casket banging its way down the middle of the street toward him.

BUMP...

BUMP...

BUMP...

Terrified, the man begins to run toward his home, the casket bouncing quickly behind him.

FASTER...

FASTER...

BUMP...

BUMP...

BUMP...

He runs up to his door, fumbles with his keys, opens the door, rushes in, slams and locks the door behind him.

However, the casket crashes through his door, with the lid of the casket clapping

clappity-BUMP...

clappity-BUMP...

clappity-BUMP...

on his heels, the terrified man runs.

Rushing upstairs to the bathroom, the man locks himself in. His heart is pounding; his head is reeling; his breath is coming in sobbing gasps.

With a loud CRASH the casket breaks down the door. Bumping and clapping toward him.

The man screams and reaches for something, anything, but all he can find is a bottle of cough syrup! Desperate, he throws the cough syrup at the casket...

and...

Pumpkin cheesecake redux

It's that time of year again...
===================================

Michele posted a recipe for a no-bake pumpkin cheesecake, which looks delightful. I think that it's time to repost my yes-bake recipe:

My recipe is pretty old. It was originally for 4 cheesecakes(I used to work in a commercial kitchen), but the quantities have been scaled back for a single cake. When I cooked for a living, almost no one else made pumpkin cheesecakes. Now, it seems like everyone and their brother makes their own, including the big warehouse stores such as Costco. Whatever. This recipe is the best.

----------------------------------------
Ingredients:

1 7/8 pounds cream cheese(worried about the fat? Use some Neufchatel)
5/8 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar
5 eggs
3/8 cup flour
1 1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
5/8 cup sour cream
1/8 cup rum
1 Tbsp vanilla

Approx. 30-49 ginger snaps
Approx. 1/4 cup butter

1) Grind up ginger snaps and mix with enough melted butter to bind together.

2) Cream together cream cheese, brown sugar and sugar. Beat eggs and add to
cream cheese mixture.

3) Add flour and the rest of the ingredients. Mix well. I suggest using the
beater attachment on your mixer, but it's up to you.

4) Grease a springform pan(10" preferred, but 9" will also work). Press the ginger
snap mixture into the pan to form the crust. Pour mixture into the crust-lined
pan; gently shake to remove air bubbles. Bake in 350 degree oven in a water bath
until the center is set.

***Note: If you have trouble with the cheesecake cracking, lower the temperature of
the oven to 300F and bake for 1 hour. Turn the oven off, open the door for one minute,
close the door and then let the cheesecake sit in it for about 45 minutes. Chill before
serving.

Biden: in his own words

Courtesy of Iowahawk. Excerpt:


"But I promise you, if one of these inevitable nuclear attacks is, God forbid, successful, Barack Obama and I will conduct tough and open negotiations with our new overlords," said Biden. "Ol' Joe Biden learned how to negotiate at his dad's used car lot in Scranton PA, and if these overlords think they can swing some sort of lowball occupation deal, I'll just tell them 'I gotta go get my manager,' and then... boo-yeah! In comes Barack Obama to upsell them undercoating and extra exercise yard privileges for you and me."

After rubbing tapioca into his armpits and singing what appeared to be the Numa-Numa song, Biden mounted a Segway and crashed through a side door.

A spokesman for the Obama-Biden campaign later clarified the Senator's remarks, and urged reporters "not to take Senator Biden's words out of context."

When asked what context that was, the spokesman explained that "the Senator has massive brain damage."
