If you need some cuteness to brighten up your day, there you go.  :)
Why do I suddenly have the yearning for some hasenfeffer?

When I was in England, I had this amazing rabbit pie from an old pub from the middle ages in Castle Combe.

Almost finished with my Autumnal cleaning. Just have to scrub the living room and bedroom floors. And clean a few more windows.

Also just got a new washer delivered this morning.

I've had a week or so of remission of what every has been plaguing me, the "sleeping sickness".

So I made good use of the time.

Time to purge some possessions and I am finished and prepped for the fast.

How did I miss this?

I was just talking about a month ago to a guy at work about eating squirrel heads. And then some folks on the internet.

Was a pleasant way to spend the day, seeing how many you get a clean body shot on.

And speaking of those vile beasts. The house across the street is getting a new roof put on today. The roofers got the to the top of the angled rubber roof and the main service coming into the house had been gnawed on by a squirrel that managed to remove the insulation from the cable before frying himself to death.

I saw a really nice Ethiopian icon of the Holy Family at an antique store today. I couldn't afford it, though.  :(

Hopefully it will still be there on Black Friday.

I agree with Akimori that the English South African accent is a little fruity, but will concede the awesomeness of the Boer accent.

Not going to lie, it is one of my least favorites. It's up there with Boston, the frat boy brah whatever accent, and Midwestern.

But Mr. Ismi is from Boston ("Bah-stin") and I have found exceptions in each of the categories. I think it matters more what they are saying. ;)

I know my accent grates. It's a hybrid, which I'm sure is more annoying. You can get the girl out of Jersey...

In the name of randomness, my salt addiction has reached insane heights. Yesterday, Mr. Ismi decided to cook a rice dish using leftover meat and veggies from last week. Before I took the first bite, he confessed that he accidentally poured too much of the cooking soy sauce (thicker than Kikkoman) into it and added this adobo marinade without thinking.

I took the first bite. And then another. And then another.

"STOP IT!" he said. "I don't even want to know how much is in there. I want to throw it out."

It was delicious. I'm tempted to make it again.  :-\ Of course a lot of this has to do with my illness, but I need to really calm down on the sodium intake.

Things that make Akimori curl up in the fetal position trembling in a dark room:

1) South African charismatics
2) Curtis Stone
3) Anyone who doesn't know what DDR is
4) The Greeks.

Someone needs to tell me what DDR is.  I thought it was East Germany but last time I asked people thought it was my usual silliness and did not correct me.  I honestly don't know what it is.  Unless DDR is East Germany and Akimori is tired of all the hoopleheads out there who flunk at outdated geography.

mine is one of the most interesting things ever

canadian accent with a strong midwestern flavour, with a spice of english thrown in for the fun of it, all spoken in a bastard mixture of canadian, buffalonian, british, and midwestern english
7/7 are on my black list.  :P

But can that beat a 75% Western Norwegian, 25% Southern USA accent?

I just realised today that my accent changes when I talk to female customers. I'm not sure what it is...

Sounds like my Irish, Norwegian and Indian accents trying to work at the same time. "How are you doing, mam?" becomes three syllables.

I'm on Raptr.com, a gaming site, and it tracks the time you've spent playing a title. I started a game today, and played a little less than an hour. So it lists it as, "2 hrs.," and then under that, "1 hr. total."
