You know...Japan makes a damn fine beer.  Sapporo isn't quite as good as Guinness, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy it damn near as much.

[ETA]
They also make a good whisky.  It's like scotch, but actually drinkable.  I'm kinda fecked writing this, but I quite enjoyed the Suntory I got a few days ago.  Shit is better than the Scottish crap I bought.  Japan knows it's booze.

I had some Sapporo a long time ago.  I remember thinking it was OK, but not great.  I used to live right by a store that had a pretty good beer selection and would have new things every so often, so I was always trying something new.

What I really miss is Pete's Wicked Ale.  I loved that stuff, but it's not even made any more.

Didn't happen today, but I've been back in counseling thanks to school. Best part is I don't have to pay for it because I'm already paying the college in tuition and other fees. Though this is only up to 12 times, I don't need to have it every week or anything but it can definitely point me in the right directions when a time comes to pass when I have to actually pay someone with my own money from my own pockets ith no middle group receiving most of it.

I'll stop eating beef lamb and pork the same day they start letting me eat vegetarians.

I'm starting to learn Fortran, mostly for shits and/or giggles.  I reimplemented a pi estimator my parallel computing teacher gave us in Fortran, and I actually kind of enjoyed it.  I haven't learned a new programming language in quite a while...it feels nice.

I just learned how to poach an egg.  Oh my god, they are wonderful.  Pop the whole yolk in at once, and its just a gush of wondrous, warm egginess.  I think that's my new favourite way to cook an egg.

How do you do it Ravy?

I use a big pot of water with a tablespoon of salt. Crack two eggs into a cup. Once the water is boiling turn off the heat and slide eggs in. Cover the pot and then scoop them out after 3 mins and 30seconds with a slotted spoon. Good to put a teaspoon of lemon juice on the eggs after you crack them into the cup.

I ground some pink salt into the water, added about a tablespoon of rice vinegar and got the water just boiling.  Whisk a whirlpool into the water, lay in the egg, and let it go til the yolk rises to the top.  Lay on a bit of paper towel to dry, then just add salt and pepper to taste.  Simple and easy.

When Sleeps and I get a house, I have already sworn that I will make the holidays a culinary fuckstravaganza.  I will be your god and there will be sauce.

The ultimate breakfast extravaganza is when you make your own hollandaise, especially good on sourdough bread
