    I usually go for medium rare to medium, but I'll pull it off, check it, throw it back on because it's not there yet, and then find myself with a piece of rubber an eye blink later.

    Just call all the women "Pretty" and men either "Wildman" or "Knucklehead".

    It looks like koningin Beatrix has abdicated the throne in the Netherlands. I am not sure how I feel about this, as prins Willem-Alexander (the next king) does not seem to tie his tie with a dimple. That is a bad example to set for the Dutch people. But I am not a Dutchman, so maybe it is none of my business anyway. (Beatrix did not wear a tie because she is a woman, so the issue did not arise with her. Same for Juliana before her.)

    I am glad I got that off my chest.

    Pork chops are indeed very hard--they have very little fat in them, so if they are overcooked at all, they are super dry.

    Really, just about any meat has a small window like that, but most meat (read: beef) has more fat than pork chops, so the penalty for being slightly over temp is much lower.

    Try getting an instant read thermometer, and remember that the meat will coast a bit.

    To file a complaint with HR.



    IIRC I've met Willem-Alexander (or Bill-A as I call him). Irregardless, he's a cool dude.

    ******************

    So my left knee has been bugging me really badly for a month or so. It was feeling fine last week and I return to running regularly...guess what's sore again. And then last week at the boxing gym my left bicep was always cramping up as soon as I would throw a hook or jab, but never an uppercut, took a few days off, go to the gym yesterday, guess what starts cramping up again... Thankfully my left nut is the real workhorse down there, otherwise that side of my body would be a total waste.

    Then, this morning, I see this dude running for the elevator so I hold the door. BIG MISTAKE.

    He's like "thanks for looking out for me my man," I'm like, OK well he's at least grateful. Then he's like "Hey is that a Ralph Lauren shirt?" (It is a standard blue-striped OCBD from BB) I say "no its from BB." Hope that's the end of the convo. "Weird, it looks just like this one I have from Ralph Lauren." At this point I immediately am standing next to the door for a quick escape on my floor (still two floors away, mind you). He continues: "Or Ralph Lau*REN*, depending which em*PHASIS* you want to put on the *SYLAB*le." I was two feet off before he was halfway done and could continue to hear him down the hall. I also never acknowledged him as I got off. Oh well, at least I am listening to "The Nutcracker." (It may be slightly out of season now, but irregardless, I like the music).

    Whoever did you the great service of snatching your size of AE's should be rewarded. Get some Alden's.

    Cooking pork chops isn't that difficult. Just don't get those silly thin ones at the supermarket.

    Why are you such an anti-social jerkface? The guy was just making conversation.

    To the former: I just am. To the latter: he was a tool.

    Forgive me, but don't you go out of your way to have that exact conversation on here with us?

    I guess it's like my enjoying squids fuck schoolgirls on the Internet, but get creeped out when it happens at my local aquarium.

    First off, this dude was wearing ill-fitting pants (probably Chaps or some other degenerate brand), un-polished square-toed loafers with cheap rubber soles and a terrible jacket all while consuming some ungodly-sized Monster energy drink and carrying his lunch in a plastic bag from the grocery store. My point being that SF-based conversations would not go especially well with this poorly-dressed slovenly pauper.

    I've gotta say, I'd be a little creeped out by some guy I'd never met making syllable accent "jokes" in an enclosed space. (Or EN-closed, as I like to say it. Hehehehehe.)

    On a semi-related note, I do find it odd that southern folk say IN-surance. I don't think they are joking like the guy in the elevator, I think they really say it that way.
