I'm wondering if I could modify this recipe to use crumbled sausage and sawmill gravy.

Worth a try.  I say to myself many times, I wonder what would happen if . . .  ?  Your IF sounds promising.

What could I have in common with one of the Gods of Gaming?
 
I got some very interesting mail this week. A letter arrived from Canada, with no return address. Inside, there was another, much older envelope also addressed to me. This one was from England, and postmarked 2000 and stamped RECEIVED UNDELIVERABLE. This was the first strange thing--it had my current correct address, but I didn't live here in 2000. In fact, this address didn't exist in 2000.

Inside the second envelope was a letter without signature. It said that the sender was in possession of some various banned works and wanted to make sure that they weren't entirely suppressed, and so sent me a copy of one of them. (The writer implied that others were getting copies as well, and that maybe there were more packages coming to me later. It was unclear.) 

And then with the letter is what appears to be the script of a short play entitled "The King in Yellow." I haven't read the play yet, but I'll probably do so tonight when I've got a bit of free time.

Curious.

I am eagerly awaiting this film!
 
"The first trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson's latest, Inherent Vice, is now online! 

Marking the first-ever adaptation of one of Pynchon's novels, Inherent Vice begins when when private eye Doc Sportello's ex-old lady suddenly out of nowhere shows up with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend whom she just happens to be in love with, and a plot by his wife and her boyfriend to kidnap that billionaire and throw him in a loony bin... well, easy for her to say.

Starring Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson, Katherine Waterston, Reese Witherspoon, Benicio Del Toro, Martin Short, Jena Malone and Joanna Newson, Inherent Vice hits theaters on December 12."

I thought the same thing re: Phoenix/Gibson.
But yes - anxious for this to come out!

Very nice.
 
Hokusai’s The Great Wave off Kanagawa, arguably the most recognizable piece by the famous ukiyo-e painter, has been recreated by artist João Victor of Brazil with a modern, pop culture twist.

Is there a way to hide the G+ What's Hot from my feed? It's become such a wretched hive of scum and teabaggers it's discouraging me from using G+ at all.

Thank you! I was able to track it down on the web page, as you suggested.

As a follow up to my post last week, today I received another mysterious parcel in the post. It contained the items pictured here; the necklace was wrapped in the tissue, and tied with twine.

These were the first role-playing games I ever saw. No one I knew played RPGs back then, but I was mail ordering SPI board games from The Compleat Strategist in NYC, and saw these in their catalog. (Yes, I ordered them blind, not even really knowing what a role-playing game was.) They arrived in the same shipment, giving them a tie to the title of #myfirstRPG, but M!M! was the first I ever played.

This homeowner's response to her bigoted neighbors makes me very happy.
Well here's a heartwarming day-after-Christmas story . Dr. Mary Pham, a resident of Irvine, California, decided last April to show her support for the LGBT community by raising a rainbow flag. Not ...

Testing out Chromecast, I played the 1944 silent art film, "The Private Life of a Cat." Felicia found it thoroughly engrossing.

I'm bumping my review up to five stars for consistency. I've been eating here regularly for a few years now, and it's become one of my favorite local places. The bar fare is great, with exceptional burgers. The full menu items, though, are superb. Besides an original take on corned beef and cabbage - shredded cabbage with a parsley cream sauce, perfectly tender potatoes, and huge cubes of deliciously seasoned beef - there are numerous interesting and tasty salads, fresh fish, and new dishes all the time. Drinks are reasonably priced, and the service ranges from good to great. Even when it's only good, though, the staff is genuinely friendly and accommodating.

If you are looking for cheap industrial pizza, this will not make you happy. But if you can appreciate expertly crafted gourmet pies with fresh, top quality ingredients, you'll love it.

Excellent food with a friendly staff and clean and tasteful decor. The lentil samosas are wonderful, spicy and flavorful filling wrapped in a flaky crust, with a lovely presentation - not often the strong point of Ethiopian restaurants. The samplers are very well balanced, offering a good variety without overwhelming quantities of food, and the quality is superb. For a suburban neighborhood and an unassuming strip mall, Sheba is quite a treasure.

A superb cinema catering more to adults than the teen demographic, with a solid representation of art house films alongside other independent productions. There's a full bar with a reasonable selection, and good, reasonably priced sandwiches and snacks. Best of all, the lobby has a nice area of plush seating to enjoy a post-film beverage, instead of having to run out into the crowds when the house lights come up.

The food is good enough, on average; it's rarely spectacular, but never awful, either. The selection, however, is amazing. While it is a bit pricey for the quality, being able to get a wide variety of Chinese dishes, plus sushi/sashimi, plus kid friendly options, makes it worthwhile for nights when no one can agree on what they want.

Very good Indian/Pakistani buffet for $11.95. We stopped in on a Sunday afternoon and were pleasantly surprised by the quality.
