If you disregard 2 then you have to accept that 99% of all online recipes are made by stay at home mother. Who decided they were good enough to share their work on their blog. Which often isn't the case.

I rarely use recipes and if I use them its as inspiration.

I think I agree with that, and I generally use recipes the same way. My only point was that if someone was interested in their "modernist" methods and recipes but didn't want to shell out for the expensive books, a number of their recipes are available online.

Trust me, I don't need to travel to see a bunch of scandanavians.

At least they are somewhat less annoying than the other two. Which doesn't say a lot.

Went to a wake. They're depressing too just like funerals.

Wakes actually strike me as more depressing than funerals, especially if there's a subset of attendees that get sloppy drunk and then wail the whole time, making everyone miserable.

I don't normally complain about students but here I'm gonna do it. Betimes i get e-mail be like "I don't understand why I got that grabe I got don't seem right hope you will consider re-grading to something more reflect my knowledge and abelity." Got one of those today here's the thing the grades I gave were actually quite charitable student really deserved considerably worse. I'm tempted to send return e-mail say "Oh absolutely I will be happy to re-grade to something that better reflects your knowledge and ability."

Fwiw I had a philosophy professor who was upfrontat the start of the term and said I am fine if you ask for me to change/help your grade. Just be careful what you wish for.

I don't think anyone ever asked.

When you're driving into work and you hope someone gets into an accident with you so you can be late.

That's dark, Ed. I used to pray for the trains to be fucked up.

Had a teacher who said he would be willing to regrade tests, but if he found mistakes he would lower your grade also.

Head's up it's May 4th, yet another day to stay off of Facebook (which I know is every day for a lot of you... this is a warning for the weak like me)

I'm taking Thursday-Monday off. Having Mother's Day in there does kind of ruin things a bit but whatever.

Ed, I know you and I don't get along. I know you don't like me. But I worry for you based on your recent string of posts.

I've been depressed before and it sounds like you may be going through the same thing. I hope you can work through whatever life is throwing at you.
