Dan and I both love our work and our industry. Given that, we talk a disproportionate amount of "shop." Last night he was thumbing through one of my bar books (The Art of the Bar--click the title for the webpage) and discovered it talked about a bartender's mise en place (which he thought was amusing and implied that a mise en place is a cook thing only :-P Be certain that I set him straight on that). Somehow, while I was explaining how the art of mixology is rather like a mix between cooking and chemistry, he started talking about cooking eggs. I really can't tell you the contents of the conversation past his remark that "Eggs can smell fear."

He was utterly confused by my laughter and subsequent, "Since when did eggs become sentient beings capable of knowing when the person cooking them is terrified of destroying them?"

I'm not sure I will ever let him live it down.

Now it's time to finish getting ready for work :-P

Take the test!

And because I make twice as much as he does and work far more hours, I felt this appropriate...

My icon has never been more appropriate ;-)

So, with Memorial Day coming up I am put in mind of the Doonesbury strip from Memorial Day 2004 (well, the day before...he runs it on Sundays with the full eight panels). This was the year I had started reading the strip (it ran in the Kalamazoo Gazette which was offered free to all students), and given that it was summer I had subscribed to the strip through email. Starting with Memorial Day that year, and running every one since, he has used his comic strip in a very poignant and fitting way for the holiday. It drew much fire, but I thought it was a beautiful honor to what the holiday stands for.

And...just for a bit of the lighter (but still serious) side of the comic...
Doonesbury on Creationism:
It's big, so I'll be nice... )

Doonesbury on the death of Hunter S. Thompson (the character that's the focus of this particular day was based on him):

ROFL! I completely forgot until I started searching for that that the above was Day 2 in a week's worth of Hunter S. Thompson/Duke tributes...
