Dude, your wife was the one all excited about the bone saw. She's going to be the one wielding that bit of fun.

Finding all of the UFC stuff on Netflix Canada.

I really miss home butchered meats. My father was a butcher and a hunter. Fresh venison FTW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My daughter's fifth grade class is using the Animaniacs as one way to help learn the states and capitols of the US. So every now and then I'll hear her singing, including the asides.

Homemade crabapple jelly.

And the best part is that i am the *only* one in the house that will eat it.

Everyone else in your house is crazy. Crabapple jelly is delicious.

Apparently Mrs. Jonman and I are going into butchery together!

Edwin and I saw full lamb carcasses at our Costco yesterday, and got to talk to the meats manager for a minute. Brand new, and only a few stores will get them. Edwin floated the idea out on Facebook and we are going full caveman with the Jonmans sometime in the next several days! They're already picking up tools, so it's clearly on.

With our culinary degrees combined, Kat and I will reduce a sizeable carcass into tasty manageable hunks of raw meat. (The guys will be our minions, of course.)

The Presidents song was great for AP US History >_>

Since this thread is making me a vegetarian, let me just say how much I love kimchee! I have no clue how to make my own so I end up trying all sorts of commercial brands that aren't that great. Perhaps I should have said tough love. The good stuff is truly great, though!

I just got a really, really nice double-breasted winter coat.

Like most people, I don't fit neatly into any of the standard clothing sizes. Most coats I try on are either too big (baggy, my hands are mostly covered by the sleeves) or too small (I have to crank my arm around to even put the coat on or my waist is too wide). It Sucks. The coat I found today seems almost tailored to my needs: The waist is just right, the sleeves are just a touch longer than necessary, and I feel like a million bucks when I wear it. The fact that I got it at half-price only sweetens the deal.

I... I love this store. [/shill]

A stool transplant can be used as an effective treatment for a deadly bacteria and that this idea has been called "therapoo".

Just saw an old episode of Grey's Anatomy where they did a fecal transplant... I blame my wife.

Dissection!

I got a package from Blind Evil today that was the first piece of mail I've received addressed to my female name. It made my week!

\o/

A lazy Sunday morning.

The project at work that I manage and is a year behind schedule, goes into operation on Monday. I can finally stop spending every spare moment in my weekend trying to anticipate what would go wrong in the week ahead. Never understood the phrase "burden lifted from my shoulders" quite as much till this moment.

Just got home.

My brief meat issues/vegetarianism is way over. I love Fogo de Chão!

Except for the lamb. Not saying it's bad, just not for me.

1) After an extremely stressful week of trying to pack up my old house, move the furniture into storage/my new place, and get the place decently clean I was delighted to find out I would be making around 30% more profit on my house than I had originally estimated.

2) Capped off said bad week with a trip out to Ohio to Pencon. I played a ton of new games, drank great beer, ate the awesome Ravenwood Castle food, and met a ton of cool Goodjers, including a pair of wonderful locals in SuperDave and quixotic.June.

New Logitech Harmony remote. I had avoided the more expensive models with the LCD screens, even though my cousin told me how awesome it was. What can I say? I'm a cheap bastard.

Anyway stumbled on one where the corner of the box was damaged and it was on clearance the other night, so got it for super cheap. Spent some time tonight setting up activities like "watch tv" and "watch a movie" where the LCD screen changes with extra commands depending on what you're doing. It's now a beautiful setup where I can press the button and then the screen pops up the 4 inputs I might want (Media Player, PS3, Wii, PC HDMI) and boom they all work with one button press. No more "source" button and then scrolling through 5 choices. And the custom labels I make for them is much clearer than HDMI2, Component1, etc.

Such a simple thing, but I can already see the ease of use making things much smooth on me, and more importantly, my wife.

Dude. You will love it, and you may or may not begin to evangelize. I was ogling one at a friend's house a few years ago, and my then-girlfriend now-wife bought me one for Christmas. (I am certain that at least 50% of the impetus for the purchase was so that she could use it to work my needlessly complicated setup.) Since then, I've bought one for my father and step-mom, my mother and step-dad, my sister and brother-in-law, and my grandmother whose system isn't complicated, but she still can't manage to work.

Whoever came up with that idea is a genius. A universal remote that actually works simply and does the troubleshooting for you.

It's not funny if I have to explain it.
