  1. Starting The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson. First Sanderson book I'll read.
  2. I'm thinking of trying my hand at sous vide venison for tomorrow night. Perhaps I'll have that to go along with some nice fish paté as an appetizer. I'll have to wake up early.
  3. I probably played that on a LC300.
  4. I'm wondering what to cook tonight. I could cook lasagna, and I could cook fish. Maybe I should cook both! I'll describe the lasagna later. Stay tuned!
  5. If you were roleplaying some game or other, what kind of character would Alorael be? What about Nine thousand six hundred and three?
  6. Don't give up! I look forward to trying this out. Perhaps I should try to dig out my copy of BoA from wherever I might have it stowed away.
  7. Somehow I'd always taken you for a Pythagoreanist. Just how wrong I was! What kind of wine do you drink with that?
  8. I cannot believe that I'm reading a thread connected to BoA and thinking "I can't wait to play that!". I haven't played BoA in so many years! Will there be a mage duel? Or a couple of dragons duking it out? Or, you know, snort-fire-out-of-their-nosrtils out or whatever dragons do. Anyway, good luck with the work ahead!
  9. Hello Iffy! I hope life treats you well. The world would be made quite a lot richer if you found the time to throw out another BoA scenario one of these days!
  10. This summer I became the proud owner of a set of Chasseur cookware. My favourite thing to cook is a variation of Normandy Pheasant. So I begin by cooking a lot of onions, mushrooms, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, and maybe some parsley root in butter on a big pan. That goes into the bottom of the dutch oven. Then I season a chicken. Last time I seasoned it with sage, a bit of lemon pepper, rose pepper and thyme. Then I fill up the dutch oven with sliced apples. My mother in law was close to critical condition from overeating last time we brought her over. I also had some sourdough bread from some ridiculously overpriced and fancy bakery. Was worth it. And then there's the wine. I very much prefer red wine, but I'll settle for obscene amounts of white wine or rose. I like ending an enormous meal with ice cream. Vanilla ice with strawberries and some warm chocolate sauce. Whipped cream, too.
  11. I probably should get around to finishing The Lies Of Locke Lamorra. On what I have gotten through these past few weeks, "De Norske Vikingesverd", by Jan Petersen, was lovely. Old Norwegian is far more beautiful and readable than I expected. Can't understand any kind of written Danish, though. It is a real shame. I'll need to find a good book for christmas. Preferably with wizards and castles and old dragons and feasts. Any recommendations?
  12. A book on the history of glassmaking. I'm also trying to bash my way through "The Lies of Locke Lamorra", but I quite dislike the non linear writing. Constantly leaving baits to keep the reader interested. Bad writing in my opinion. Anyone read a history book lately? Anything they care to share their opinion on? I have a bunch of marine/ocean related books I just can't stay interested in. I should read them, bu I don't. Then there's chemistry in school. Does it never end?
  13. And, a tangent on the moonlessness thought, what if earth were a moon of a gas giant? I know no reason why it should be inhospitable. I do know the sky would be quite a bit more amazing than it is on our earth! Also, I have often wondered about Jeffs cavescape idea. Could large caves form and remain stable as a planet of certain geological/geochemical composition cools down? Most matter contracts on cooling, maybe not enough for such large caves to form. Not that I have any concrete facts on this subject.
  14. One thought I have pondered over for years: what if the ancient greeks had had fossil fuels? (ie. Easily accessible gas, oil or coal.) They had basic steam engines worked out, and knew of the existance of electricity. Maybe, if they had actually had motive and possibility to advance their engines, well, who knows? (edit: spelling fixed)
