[quote=gay panda;992976]lady friend's ewes are incurable romantics. They want candy and flowers, to hold hooves at the seashore, to be escorted to jennifer aniston movies and to be titillated with naughty jokes that go just a [I]little[/I] too far but no farther than that.
The last ram understood that, and so he was very popular among the ewes. Unfortunately, lady friend's new ram is a business man. He was brought on to do a job, and that job is all he intends to do. He hates jennifer aniston and doesn't believe in spending money on flowers that are going to die in a few days anyway. And so he approached them in a business fashion, not a gentlemanly one.
In addition to being incurable romantics, the kind who sigh at zales commercials for perfect moment diamond rings and scream at the tousles in john mayer's hair, lady friend's ewes are also amazons. And they kicked the ever-loving sh*t out of business man this morning. They booted him from one end of the pasture to another in an orgy of violence at having their romantic passions thwarted in favor of his base instincts. I have no pictures for you. It was disturbing. We finally called everyone over and threw enormous heaps of hay over the fence in the hopes of distracting them. It appears to have worked temporarily, as the passions of sheep for food run even higher than rubbing the face of business man into the ground.
If any lambs result next march, it will be a miracle.[/quote]

Solution: throw rib roast in crockpot, get back to editing. Or, send Lady Friend out for nachos.
I find crock pots to be wonderful.

Good idea. :)
I have four slow cookers. I think they are one of the best kitchen gadgets ever invented.
And if you're not patient enough for the slow cooker, there's the pressure cooker - my personal favourite kitchen gadget. Oh, it's 5 pm and there's nothing but braising cuts? And they're all frozen? No problem! Toss something in with an onion and a sploosh of wine and 40 minutes later it's tender and delicious.
[I can't remember if you're reading the Rune series, but Runefly should also be available on Amazon tomorrow morning. I love the cover - the artist I have transforming my pencil scratchings into actual art is very talented.[/QUOTE]

I have been in freakin' suspense all summer!! I may have to hold off reading them and save them for a plane trip in a couple of weeks. Then I will have HOURS of uninterrupted guilt-free reading.
Oooooh, I love that they're in paperback, I want to hold them, my Preciousssss
no nachos, ha ha. Too bad I don't run screaming from nachos......
Dammit. Now I want nachos.
Well, Remorse has shown up, but Resolve remains MIA. Maybe tomorrow ... [SIZE=1]*sigh*[/SIZE]
Resolve showed up at my office yesterday afternoon. There's a theater-style popcorn machine in the boardroom, and someone decided to make a batch yesterday afternoon. One of the women offered me a bag and I turned it down, noting that I am trying to get my eating on track before the Christmas parties hit.
Of course, then last night I had a snack of avocado oil potato chips and a hard cider while I was making the curry for dinner, but those are both primal legal and I'm not hung up on carbs (ooh, look at me rationalize!).
That List o' Whiplash is making me want to become a dominatrix. Why should Resolve have all the fun?
