Clarion, Day 40: In which we watch zombie movies and have adventures in the kitchen

Lunch was excellent, left-over coq au vin over toast, to soak up the scrumptious au vin. I cooked dinner for the crew last night, from this recipe for coq au vin. Also made carrot cake, for the second time, and both were well-received.

While cooking dinner, something exciting happened.

Last night many of us watched Dead Alive, the canonical zombie movie. Remarkable. Stomach-turning. Several people had to leave in the middle. Two word's: Chekhov's lawnmower.

Post too long. More later.

Is this an in-joke? Or an LJ bug? I don't get it...

Don't you realize that some of us have to break the substitution code you've used and won't be satisfied until they have?!


So much for writing this afternoon. And it's all your fault.

(Oh. And if this is not a code, just garbled, you are going to be so in trouble.)
yeah send it to me when you crack it, for i am too lazy.
Can I redeem the translation for word count?
alas, what leverage you might have had is gone.

too slow, missy

The nun, the typewriter, and the cannibal, in that order.

And eight times, if you count Richard Burton twice.

I *warned* them not to shave the weasel.
Yah, that stuff gets everywhere, doesn't it?
I really should move my fridge to get the last of it, but I'm afraid of what I'll find back there.
