En-route to Mars.
Here's a comment: Matt is all kind of hot. Please make appreciative hoots and catcalls to him in my name.
Time to bust out the duct tape!
You thought I was making that whole thing up about the accident at the San Bernardino Holiday Inn, didn't you?
Jen: Matt is charmingly embarrassed. Ryan is jealous. I told him he should dress up like a more sympathetic character, but he does have the Charlie look. Welcome back, comment buddies! I feel much better now.
I'm with Jen re: Matt. I'm wondering why we don't get to have anyone like that on the sites I go to? Instead I get creepy, seedy looking guy from Deline who won't stop staring at me...that or a bunch of older gnarled ex-mining types. Good for a bunch of stories, but not much to look at! Back up to one of our sites for a few days tomorrow - here's hoping the blackflies have started to die off!
I like this new line of conversation. Well done as usual.
Hey Kim, two things...1) Who's your Sayid? 2) Have you heard: On May 7, 2007, ABC Entertainment President Stephen McPherson announced that Lost will end during the 2009–2010 season with a "highly anticipated and shocking finale." "We felt that this was the only way to give it [Lost] a proper creative conclusion," McPherson said. Beginning with the 2007–2008 television season, the final 48 episodes of Lost will be aired as three seasons with sixteen episodes each. Thus, Lost will conclude with its sixth season. These seasons are to air uninterrupted from February to May. Lindelof and Cuse stated that they "always envisioned Lost as a show with a beginning, middle, and end," and that by announcing when the show would end that viewers would "have the security of knowing that the story will play out as we've intended." And a third thing--you may be gone, but not forgotten. It doesn't look like they're commenting, but the Moss/Veneklasen/East Bay tribes are all rooting for you to make it home sane. I'm hoping these four months of dubious cuisine haven't caused permanent harm to your taste buds, and we can take you out for a feast next time we see you--let me know when I should be booking French Laundry!! On a side note: as much as we love your cooking, please don't ever make us eat ANYTHING that features TSP. *shudder*
Karyn: Mentioning the French Laundry is very, very unfair. I had almost managed to persuade myself that our dinner tonight of chicken TVP couscous was quite nice. Now the illusion is utterly shattered.I'm now really really tempted to hop on one of those super cheap Virgin flights and come up for a day from LA (I'll be there for a conference on the way back from the Arctic), *just* to go to the French Laundry...
Katherine: No blackflies up here! There's no bug life at all. After the over-the-top bugginess of Hawaii, it feels all wrong.
Oh, more for Karyn: I'm not sure we have a Sayid. Simon claimed the title, on account of his accent, but he's too nice a guy to make creative use of bamboo. Mel is Kate, but that's just because she fancies both Sawyer and Mal (the policeman Kate marries). I'm the smoke monster.
This may be the answer for TVP meals that taste great but are somewhat lacking in the presentation category:Dining in the Darkhttp://tinyurl.com/36kmu9Jame Gumb would be so proud. Lecter too.
Tim: Thanks for the ref - we've booked a table for the crew when we're in LA!
The hardest part of Mars would not be the food, I've decided. It would be waiting for the new Harry Potter.
Regarding food, after eating reindeer meat nearly every day for close to two weeks and after experiencing the Swede's version of the delicacy "shrimp sandwich" I'd almost opt for hab food.Shrimp sandwich ala Sweden, as experienced at Skansen outdoor museum, and seen way too many times on menus:place piece of white bread on plate.scoop a lot of miracle whip onto bread (1-2 cups preferred)slice boiled eggs onto miracle whipmound shrimp on top. serve with a huge Swedish smile.Discuss.
p.s. the Swedish meatballs were in fact deserving of their claim to fame.
Food Newsby JenI found a new place (8 days old!) called Hank's Haute Dogs! Guess what they serve? Correct! Fancy hot dogs! You can get Chicago style, andouille, bratwursts or a no-dog dog, which is basically avocado and fancy mayonnaise. They also have a duck & foie gras dog, but I did not get it as it cost $9.50. This is Jen Baker, reporting live from the dining dregs of Kakaako.
How in the world did you get my locker combination?And cheers to this:By Frank Morring, Jr./Aviation Week & Space TechnologyA panel reviewing astronaut health issues in the wake of the Lisa Nowak arrest has found that on at least two occasions astronauts were allowed to fly after flight surgeons and other astronauts warned they were so intoxicated that they posed a flight-safety risk.The panel, also reported "heavy use of alcohol" by astronauts before launch, within the standard 12-hour "bottle to throttle" rule applied to NASA flight crew members.Taken from:http://tinyurl.com/2ohzsdSome performance anxiety perhaps?
Duck and foie gras dog? I'm all over that shit. And I hate to say it, Lora, but I'd kill for a reindeer steak with shrimp and mayo side. If a herd of caribou came over the horizon right now, it'd take a *lot* of duct tape to stop James from grabbing a rifle and bagging us some BBQ.
I'm currently earning a masters degree in hot dogs cannot possibly swing back through Honolulu without doing thorough research. Who is in?
GODDAMMIT.Just saw the last episode of Lost. On the upside, I'm smug about knowing it was a flash-forward right from the opening shot. On the downside, no more Lost for six months. Fuck.
Kristin, feel free to call me and Randy "hot dog research hos" especially Randy!
Kim - don't spoil LOST and I won't spoil Harry.Lora - you're on!
Kristin - why wait? I-Tunes has every episode... I only waited this long because we wanted to get the whole crew caught up.
What's that, Kim? Use a computer?
