Reminds me of a time when i went to Wendy's (or something like that), and ordered $50 worth of Jalapeno poppers. Even the taxi driver who was driving me through the drive-trough gave me weird looks

Havnt had Jalapeno poppers since btw!

Did he drop you off at a back alley where you proceeded to eat $50 worth of jalapeño poppers while saying "my precious"?

Jason, when/if you're in New York, I recommend you check out the B&H store. That thing is badass
Actually, even if you're a New Yorker and haven't been there, check it out

I make care packages of food for people once in a while. Chicken was on sale and making food relaxes me. The plump pieces of chicken from the drum stick will be marinaded lightly with a few oils, acids, seasoning, spices and to get a touch of sweet basil flavors in there. Then it's 24 hours of marinading in a earl grey tea concoction that will be reduced down to be pretty concentrated. Then crumbed with a Panko crumb and flour batter with sweet basil in it. Havent tried the earl grey on chicken before but it worked well on the duck breast so it should be even better on chicken. Using the unatteactive bits of chicken (which there are plenty of for spring rolls with chicken and vegetables in em. making one with a touch of soaked and slightly pickled ginger finely sliced in it. A spicy one with some chili and a dash of cayenne and a regular one. Using all that skin and remaining meat for a chicken skin and and prawn ravioli. Admittedly, it's frozen prawns that I've stored for a few weeks now. Looks like its going to be 250 chicken nuggets and ~250 spring rolls and about 150 raviolis.

It's an electronics store. Let me explain what's so amazing.
First of all, it's really crowded. Always packed. And I mean, it always looks like Black Friday/Boxing Day?
There's a kind of show floor, where you can look at, and try anything technological on earth. When you know what you wanna buy, you talk to an employee, and he places your "order", and prints a receipt. Then you go to the checkout line, and give them your receipt, and pay. From there it's to the pickup counter, where you watch as your item arrives instantly. How? Well, as soon as you got rung up by the employee on the floor, your item was found, labeled, and moved out of the warehouse to the pickup counter, using ****ing crazy systems of conveyor belts running along the ceiling. This all takes about a minute. My description made it sound really silly (and complicated/disorganized), but its actually... Amazing

It sounds pretty concise actually. Are the electronics cheaper than other general electronics store?

Tsk tsk... the isles has the same article/thread on the Potvin deal and even in the off season and during this time of crisis for hockey fans everywhere, they're not sparing the "Rags" title.

Don't think so. It's more of a high-end store, where you can get things you won't find at best buy etc.

And yes, it's really concise. I thought it was confusing/useless at first. Walking out with the new receiver a minute later changed my mind

LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL LLLLLLLLLL

You know guys... I'd just like to lower my head in silence over how sad my Christmas holidays are

When Nils was talking about putting up a tree and John cuts in and says "my tree in 10 feet tall", I thought you guys were talking about a tree tree that photosynthesizes. I was wondering why the hell Nils was planting a tree and then I saw the picture of the Christmas tree and I was like... Ohh....

We'd usually have the tree up by now but everything that survived from the Hurricane is in the living room so it's gonna be a little while longer

Don't believe I'm doing a Christmas tree this year. Kinda strange when you aren't Catholic.

Is having eggs for breakfast three times a week a bad idea? I've been going with two (Tuesday, Friday) and a cup of coffee and they are really my best mornings every week ....

Thinking about changing that to M/W/F after I knock out all my "work outs."

But cholesterol and all that noise... I'd eat eggs every ****ing day, but I don't want to die at age 40.

And Cresty, you're the man for cooking all that food dude. That's gotta be big time real life karma points

Eat egg whites instead. They taste the same. Put some salt on 'em if you need to. The best thing I ever learned about cooking breakfast, was to use egg whites instead of eggs.

Speaking of cholesterol, I got my latest blood donation card. My stats look good.
