I guess I'd rather know this had happened, especially when it's already up
on blocks anyway. But it's always disheartening to start a job by finding out it's bigger than you thought.

"The general rule is, if you're looking for the worst organic derivatives of any metal, you should hop right on down to the methyl compounds. That's where the most choking vapors, the brightest flames, and the most panicked shouts and heartfelt curses are to be found. Methyl organometallics tend to be small, reactive, volatile, and ready to party."

You're so right.  Actually, IMO it's better than tvtropes. :)

"...but I submit to the table the question of whether naval-strength gin is, by definition, weapons-grade."

(Pause) "I don't know, but it's at least pyro-compatible."

Looks like I'm going to be volunteering at Michigan Bluff on July 20th, rather than Foresthill.

Went to Form Fitness (not sure why I can't plus them: https://plus.google.com/114526690137882013979 ) to sign up. My eyes were not deceived--there is a set of kettlebells in the weight room! Did 3x10 swings with something "just right"-sized. Thank you +Tracy Reifkind  for all you've taught me.

Wrote this up for a coworker who expressed a love of soup, thought I'd post it here (though I really prefer soup as a cold-weather meal; maybe the Aussies and Kiwis will enjoy...)

Also, it assumes a small knowledge of the San Francisco Bay Area.  For Penzey's Spices, look here: http://www.penzeys.com
Dittmer's and Swingle's are old-fashioned butchers who smoke their own meats onsite.  You're on your own for local substitutions.

requirements: 1 lb dried peas, 1 lb "baby" carrots (an appropriate size and prewashed for the lazy), Penzey's[Menlo Park, or online] Spices Ham Base, 6qt crockpot

Especially lazy variation (for the end of an oncall week): ham hock or shank, Penzey's onion and/or garlic powder

Over the top variation (when there are a few neurons left and/or guests to impress): smoked ham hock or shank from Dittmer's [Mountain View] or Swingle's [Jackson], garlic cloves, onion

If !lazy
Peel garlic and onion
Chop onion

Assemble in crockpot: peas, carrots, 4qt water, 2tablespoons Ham Base, actual ham, onion/garlic components.  Set to cook on low for 8 hours and sleep the sleep of the just, knowing that there will be soup all weekend long.

When complete, retrieve meat and bone fragments with tongs.  Discard bones and skin, chop meat into civilized-looking pieces.  Return meat to soup and serve.  Consume messily, preferably with good bread.
