They charge -- I just wondered if anyone here subscribed to the unlimited plan. If so, I wondered if he or she would check a number for me.

I would if I needed it for a case, but I haven't needed it yet, so I haven't subscribed.

I think it is a bit scary they can give out cell numbers, which should be unlisted.  I'm still curious if it works, not enough to pay to test it. ;D

It's part of the controversy over making a directory of cell numbers.

I had a Kenmore that last a long time but was only an average performer. The Frigidaire I have now is superb.

Really? I was leaning toward Bosch, Kitchenaid, or GE. I'll now add Frigidare to my list, along with Kenmore. Thanks, Matt.

Had a full evening of viewing, and I watched lots of different types of shows.

I began by finishing THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT Part III. The first one got the best numbers, that's for sure, but the third tries harder to make something with the footage left, and I think they did a marvelous job with it.

I skimmed through today's AS THE WORLD TURNS. Luke was on talking to his aunt. No Noah, and neither were in the previews for tomorrow.

Couscous is not rice.  Sorry, it just isn't.  It's a type of pasta, very fine grained (larger if Israili).


Yes, couscous is made from semolina, a form of wheat--definitely not rice.

I watched a very good episode of NCIS tonight. It was from this season, so Tony wasn't calling every two seconds to talk to his doctor girl friend (which I found very irritating and intrusive last season). Very intriguing story aboard what appeared to be a ghost ship potentially infected with an airborne pathogen.

Really enjoyed this one.

I didn't find tonight's HOUSE as good as Sunday night's episode, but it was certainly good enough to hold my attention. And an interesting solution to the medical mystery, too.

Next, I watched last night's OLD CHRISTINE. The early scenes were kind of falling flat, but it picked up about ten minutes into the show and there were certainly some good laughs. Glad to have the show back.

For the last 20 minutes of the evening, I just channel surfed. I watched a little bit of EPIC MOVIE on HBO-HD. It was pretty awful.

Watched a bit of an old BEVERLY HILLBILLIES episode with Hedda Hopper as the guest star. I remembered watching it when it was first broadcast.

O!   M!   G!

Alton Brown is making tortillas!

He's seducing me into wanting a tortilla press!!

Just what der Brucer really needs, something else for me to make from scratch!!!

DR Woody, I tried making tortillas a number of years ago, but just couldn't get the hang of it. Is there some secret?

An old LA story:
When I was a little girl there was a little Mexican grocery store on Sawtelle Blvd (west side of the street) that had a tortilla factory in the back. I can't imagine why you'd need a room-sized machine to make tortillas, but that's what they had. The tortillas were right off the machine and still warm when we bought them. I'd snack on them on the way home, then my mother would make homemade tacos. We were probably the only family in Culver City in those days preparing Mexican food at home.

Freshly-made tortillas are a real treat.

There was a Mexican restaurant in San Diego in the 1980's that a group of Hispanic ladies making fresh tortillas. They did so in front of a large window, so passersby could watch them.

sigh.

It's all about the masa!

Jose, do you know the secret? I used the recipe on the masa package, but couldn't get the consistency right.

Thanks. It'd be really nice to say "Oh, Bernadette Peters is coming? No problem!" Even if I can't afford the great seats. At this point I'd like to be able to afford seats in nosebleed heaven.

Well, I did ten pages today and I am POOPED.  Still another nine to go probably, and I'll try to finish those tomorrow, Thursday at the latest.  But the hard part, whether good or bad, is over.

I actually experimented a few years ago with making fresh tortillas - at least corn ones. I found that the temperature of the water sometimes made a difference, also the amount of time you let the mixture set comes into play. Alas, the one "secret" that really seemed to make a difference: lard.

Hello all... for reasons, best explained by Vixdad's blog entry

Quote
She was all abuzz about how one of her teachers had got 45 group ticket to see "Rent", which she assured me is the hottest show in the whole school. Everyone, and she means everyone is talking about the show, singing selections from it or putting on impromptu street theater versions of key parts of it. She had to get on line at 6:30 am to reserve herself one of the tickets, and there were already 15 kids there when she got on line.

Rarely have I seen her so excited about something to do with school, or anything really.

Later on she was racing around getting ready to go and play basketball and a heated discussion broke out between her and Mrs Stevie (while I was composing the last entry, actually) in which I distinctly heard the words "I'm sorry, but we've been looking forward to I-Con for a year now." come from Mrs Stevie.

It turned out that the proposed expedition to see Rent clashed with the Saturday of I-Con, a three-day SF convention we attend every year. Saturday is the best day of the con for me, since it represents the major autograph chances with the guest authors and this year Harlan Ellison has agreed to show. He used to come every other year, but it's cold and damp here during most I-Cons and Ellison is no spring chicken. I digress.

Thinking I could broker a solution of genius I said "Why can't she go to see Rent on her own while we do I-Con? My mistake was to smile when I said this, I think.

"Because I've already bought the tickets1 and she already asked her friend Marlene to go with her"

Damnation! I usually buy the tickets, and I do it a bit later in the year. Mrs Stevie's eternal hunt for the bargain-priced advanced-sale tickets had hoist us on her petard. I thought for a second with a sinking heart and a squeaking wallet.

I'm gonna have to buy full priced tickets for the show. The Stevieling would probably take missing the show with good grace (she usually does in these sorts of situation) but I feel like crap just imagining how her little heart is breaking. Come I-Con saturday I'll be suicidal with guilt even though this is none of my doing.

Never, ever have kids.

Especially beautiful, talented, girl kids.


the Vixter and I will be in NYC to see this Saturday's matinee of RENT.  If any of our NY haines would care to meet up for dinner,drinks, desserts etc afterwards we'd love to see you!
