« first day (1897 days earlier)      last day (1660 days later) » 

3:00 PM
@Jay Girls night, of course. Or probably anyone up to a manicure and discussing male actor's looks. Had a gay friend who was always happy to chime in. (skipped the polish, though)
 
that's missing half the fun
 
@Jolenealaska by ignoring the female actresses or skipping the glitter?
 
I didn't realize that it was either/or.
Don't skip the glitter and don't ignore anyone.
 
Jay
@Stephie main reason i asked was because you said itd be awkward with hubby. Why would it be awkward if you had female friends over?
 
@Jay Stephie's one of those prudes that finds sleeping with another woman and her husband awkward
go figure
 
3:10 PM
go figure, indeed
 
Jay
oh awkward because hubby cant sleep in his own bedroom
ok nvm
 
<and the penny drops>
 
Jay
All you have to do is move the slumber party to the living room and make a sheet/pillow fort
problem solved
 
Yeah, it's just not as easy as it used to be. And that kind of kills the fun. Well, another twenty years and we'l meet on the front porch or start scouting retirement comunities. Another kind of girls' club.
 
Jay
Oi! Its too early to think such things. You are still a lovely young lady.
 
3:18 PM
Says the youngster.
 
Jay
I'm not THAT young anymore. Theres this new intern at our office
and I feel so old whenever i see him
I think he's 20 y o
 
If I put the appropriate numer of candles on my cake, I'll have to de-activate the smoke alarm and have the fire departement on standby. So stop complaining.
 
Jay
@Stephie Haha you are such a drama queen :P
I made chicken burritos last night
it seems every time i use cumin, the oil likes to splatter everywhere
 
why?
 
Jay
not sure. perhaps cumin just reacts funny with oil
maybe it was the paparika though. I usually use cumin and paprika together
 
3:22 PM
maybe your spices are damp
moisture makes oil spit
ARE YOUR SPICES DAMP JAY? ಠ_ಠ
 
Jay
well its basically a dry rub on the chicken last night
it was cubes of chicken so i didnt wipe it dry
maybe that was it
 
I think we need more details - that's what we'd tell our posters ;-)
 
Jay
cumin, paprika, salt pepper, cayenne, onion and garlic powder spice mix on the cubed chicken
 
Yep. Sounds like water from the chicken.
 
Jay
bah, so i have to wipe the damn cubes of chicken dry first?
 
3:24 PM
Splatter guard and live with it?
 
Jay
@Stephie fortunately i do have one of those
but didnt realize until getting several painful splatters on myself
my roommate ordered one a while back but had put it in a weird spot so i never noticed it
 
@Stephie too late, I saw that. I knew you loved me ;)
 
Jay
awwww, she retracted her statement :'(
Im so sad now
 
@ElendilTheTall didn't want that for posterity...
 
@Jay only because she knew you would star it for being vulgar
 
Jay
3:27 PM
haha
 
@Stephie the message remains in my heart ;)
 
I was in the bathroom :(
 
Jay
ahahaha you missed it. it was great. highlight of my whole life
:D
 
user116848
Hi.
 
user116848
How are we all today? :P
 
3:27 PM
Hi @Arrowfar!
 
user116848
Hello @Stephie.
 
@Arrowfar see the transcript...
 
Jay
The weather here have been dreary the past few days
 
Hi illuminati
 
@Jay Darn. So I know what to expect in the next two weeks. (btw.: have?)
 
3:31 PM
You beat me and Tall to it.
shame
 
Jay
lol
 
<blush> That's a first....
 
Jay
in my head it makes sense to differentiate the weather of each day separately
and i dont think weathers is a word
 
The subject is weather
sorry
 
Jay
but perhaps it is
 
3:33 PM
channelling Tall
 
@Jolenealaska hey, stop that, it tickles
 
Jay
I wake up in the morning and the sun is hiding behind clouds
and when i get off from work the sun is gone
 
user116848
@Stephie I have watched some Vampire Diaries myself. I was a big fan of Beauty and the Beast series for a while. These days I only watch Arrow and the Person of Interest series.
 
Jay
@Arrowfar I liked Arrow at first but i feel like its gotten stale. The Flash I <3 though
 
@Arrowfar Guilty pleasure?
 
user116848
3:35 PM
@Stephie I read the transcript but got scared.
 
@Jay is that some kind of loop?
 
user116848
;)
 
@Arrowfar of what?
 
Jay
@ElendilTheTall loop?
 
user116848
@Stephie Nothing, just kidding.
 
Jay
3:36 PM
loop = UK version of spinoff?
 
Ok, while you are all untangeling this mess, I'll go and get minor 1 his antibiotics. Infected wound. Bleach.
 
user116848
@Jay I see. Yeah Flash is good too.
 
Jay
if loop does mean spinoff then yes, the Flash is a spinoff from Arrow
@Stephie BLEACH!?!
 
user116848
@Stephie Yes that. But I love Arrow and Person of Interest.
 
Jay
Please tell me you mean peroxide
 
3:38 PM
@Jay while I < 3...
;)
 
user116848
I had to Google "Guilty pleasure" though. I knew the phrase but was unsure of its meaning.
 
Jay
@ElendilTheTall ohhh lol
 
user116848
You guys have very good English.
 
user116848
Chatting has improved my English a lot I think.
 
I should hope so, most of us are native speakers
 
user116848
3:39 PM
I mean making correct sentences and all.
 
@Jay No, I mean "disgusting". Didn't want to leave you alone with a typo.
 
jay's Chinese roots show unfortunately ಠ_ಠ
;)
 
user116848
@ElendilTheTall Yes that's why. +1
 
@Stephie 'bleuch' would be better ;)
 
Tall's pedantry is showing.
 
3:40 PM
@ElendilTheTall Igitt!
 
@Jolenealaska what's new?
 
Not much tonight!
 
is that a complaint?
 
user116848
@Stephie Do you speak English in your daily life too or just in chat? I only speak it with some colleagues sometimes. But these days only here in chat.
 
are we clowns to you? are we here to amuse you?
<channels Joe Pesci>
 
3:44 PM
probably not... tonight.
 
Jay
Yes im here to amuse everyone
juggle knives
 
Oh Tall! I promised to ask you something:
 
Jay
balances a ball on my head
 
@Arrowfar not in daily life, no. It will probably different when I'm back at work in a few months, but then I'll trade Tall's precision for Indian mumbling. (Sorry, no offense, but combined with a bad phone connection some accents are really a challenge.)
 
2
A: Any reason I can't use popover batter to make one huge popover without separating into little cups?

JolenealaskaYou absolutely can do that. Brits call it Yorkshire Pudding, and the technique is actually fairly forgiving. You can make them muffin sized, or you can make one big popover. Just don't mess around, popovers get their "pop" from steam. A medium cast-iron skillet (9 inches or 23 cm, roughly) is per...

 
3:47 PM
@Jay now clap your hands backwards and make those funny noises. And I'll throw you a fish.
 
Jay
@Stephie Trust me, I completely understand. ~75% of my coworkers are Indian and their accents range from understandable to "is he speaking English or Hindi right now?"
 
user116848
@Stephie Hehe.
 
@Jolenealaska is there a further question?
 
@Jolenealaska @ElendilTheTall, note that she officially called you "best friend" in a comment!
 
Jay
Even worse is when they speak in monotone. that makes the accent 100% worse
 
3:49 PM
@ElendilTheTall I think she wants a recipe.
 
user116848
So when I speak English it is in American accent (sorta) but I'm pretty sure I don't sound like shit ;)
 
@Stephie 'one of', 'on this board'
 
"a" best friend
"on this board"
 
Stop nitpicking. Read the compliment, not the limitations.
 
but...
 
3:50 PM
@Stephie my point is it's not that much of a compliment... :P
 
Jay
@Arrowfar record and post your voice and we can judge whether you sound like shit or not :D
 
@ElendilTheTall If I were you, I'd take what I can get ;-)
(Or what I can get away with...)
 
@Stephie the story of my life
 
user116848
@Jay heh.
 
Jay
OH you guys
so ridiculous
 
3:55 PM
yeees?
 
Jay
So to volunteer at the local library, I have to have 2 references AND go through an interview process...
Idk... that seems excessive
All the other ones just asked me to fill out an application
 
That reminds me of a small story!
Earlier this week I was standing by a befuddled young man chatting on his phone.
 
Jay
i think theres only one f in befuddled
 
He looked right at me, and asked the meaning of IKR.
 
Jay
lol thats a pretty common text acronym
 
4:05 PM
Hmm, my speelll cheeck is tiits up.
 
Jay
lol
I can imagine you saying those words in a exaggerated way to test Dragon
 
So, I said, "I know, right?"
He said, "No, that's why I asked"
 
user116848
heh :)
 
@Jolenealaska was there a question related to the yorkshire pudding thing?
 
Hmm, I'm glad one of us got it.
In the comments, Tall. I just promised to ask you.
It's not a recipe request, he didn't ask. I offered.
 
4:12 PM
ah
well, for future reference, 2 eggs, 120g plain/AP flour, 150ml milk, 150ml water, salt and pepper, beat it all up, leave it to stand for a while if possible.
hot hot hot fat, 250C oven for 20 mins
makes 12 in a muffin pan
or enough for one Toad in the Hole
 
got it. Done
How do you feel about GdD's comment that they aren't the same thing?
(I defer to you here, I have no actual opinion)
 
I've never made popovers, so I don't know
I seem to recall they might contain butter
 
4:27 PM
Yeah, I seem to think that is the difference.
But what do I know? Two sides of the pond, and all that.
 
it's usually a safe assumption that American food contains either butter or some kind of box mix
 
oh shut up
 
you see it on Pinterest: MINT FUDGE CHOCOLATE BROWNIE ICE CREAM CAKE! YOU MUST TRY THIS!
 
Recipe: Take 1 box of mint fudge chocolate brownie mix and follow instructions
 
Jay
4:31 PM
lol
 
@ElendilTheTall Well, if you simplify that to simply "butter" you can say the same of French food ;)
 
Layer with ice cream
@Jolenealaska rowrr
 
Jay
there are also ridiculous amount of caramel apple recipes asking you to unwrap 100 caramel candies
 
@Catija yes indeed
 
Jay
x.x
 
4:35 PM
There is either a ridiculous amount or there are ridiculous amounts.
sorry
I should go to bed
 
there is no more Sisyphean task than correcting Jay's textual slip ups
even I don't bother any more
 
Yes, that's why I mention bed.
I don't normally do that (glass houses and all that)
 
well, I won't do my usual thing and shoo you that way, because I will probably get bitten
 
I will just stay here behind the upturned coffee table and eye you warily
 
4:39 PM
wary is good.
 
yes dear
 
:)]
what is that? A beard?
 
my head on a platter?
 
That's an Amish smiley
 
@Jolenealaska still with us?
 
4:49 PM
Barely
 
sounds good
oh, I see what you mean
 
I'm watching the end of... Guess What?
 
gran torino again?
 
No. That made me a bit misty, so I went full bore
 
Les mis
 
4:52 PM
"do you hear the people sing?"
 
so les mis
 
yes
And it just ended
I am mostly loving my new video card.
 
you need to get some shiny new games to take advantage of it
Call of Duty, Fallout, that kind of thing
 
games??
probably not.
 
that was something of a joke
 
5:05 PM
I haven't finished Balder's Gate
Ah
Jean Valjean is nothing now; another story must begiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiin.
I love the foreman.
It was with him that I was first (known to me) plagerized.
I feel certain that I (and only I) called him an impotent little pipsqueak with a Napoleonic complex (in that day, anyway).
yet that line showed up on IMDb.
well
 
5:22 PM
Well
One more and we have three holes in the ground...
 
WoW! It really that late?
Damn!
I wasn't actually referring to your last line, but to the clock. Am I supposed to know what "three holes in the ground" is supposed to refer to? I'm pretty clueless, but it is late.
 
Well well well
3 holes in the ground
 
FFS, it had better be fucking Shakespeare
I was about to go to bed but now you've got me intrigued
 
That's it. 3 wells = 3 holes in the ground.
That's as exciting as it gets I'm afraid. Go to bed, by all means.
 
5:38 PM
the witches in Macbeth?? Probably not. I probably should go to bed.
As much as I would love to toil with the cauldrons, I probably should not tarry further.
although, I restarted Les Miz.
 
Oh jeez. I will risk it. GO TO BED.
<brandishes whip and chair
 
you are so sweet to me
 
Jolene, my darling, my sweet ear of Iowan corn, light of my browser, might I humbly suggest that your time would be better served in the sweet embrace of Hypnos?
 
you like it when I do that roweeeeer thing.
Who is this "Hypnos" SOB?
never heard of him
 
The God of sleep.
 
5:47 PM
Yeah, because sarcasm is never lost on the likes of you.
Okay
here I go
 
Sleep well
 
after one more scene of Les Miz
 
No.
Go now
Or I'll delete my account and never darken this room again!
Go on, shoo
 
OK, but only because I have this new video card. I can restart the movie with one pluck of my index finger.
 
Go on then
 
5:52 PM
Goodnight Sweetie.
 
Good night trouble.
 
Jay
Ahhhh my wisdom tooth operation is looming closer and closer
Im dreading the week after the operation where i cant eat solids rather than the operation itself right now
What are some good food choices I should make?
I'm thinking ill be bored of fruit smoothie after 2 days
if not sooner
 
6:11 PM
Souo
Soup
Porridge
Pho
 
Jay
I cant do pho. there are solids
I'll probably do a lot of savory rice porridges
Hmmm i wonder how the vietnamese restaurant will react if i ask just for their broth lol
I usually dont like warm blended soups
maybe ill just make chicken soup and drink the broth
 
user116848
@ElendilTheTall I have played Call of Duty, it is very good.
 
user116848
I only played till Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 . I don't play video games these days otherwise I'd definitely try its 'Black Ops' series.
 
user116848
6:28 PM
The last game I played was Assassins Creed. I don't remember which part though.
 
user116848
Also Prince of Persia and Tomb Raider series are quite good.
 
user116848
I haven't played any video game in like five years now.
 
Jay
7:31 PM
So i started doing christmas shopping
I figure i might as well get it out of the way
I ordered my little brother Gunnar gaming glasses. Its suppose to block the harmful blue lights and UV lights that cause eye strain and head aches
My 10 year old female cousin is getting a jewelry making kit. She is going to be so ecstatic when she opens her present!
Her older brother is getting a nice drawing pencil set plus accessories. He likes drawing and is pretty decent at it
I dont know what to get my older sister though
She makes a lot of money but she doesnt really spend much on herself
It's kinda tough buying a present for her
 
wow...@DebbieM., French??
 
@jolenealaska what are you doing here?!
@jay Gunnar?
 
umm...gee...i dunno
I fell asleep at the computer
 
I ought to put you over my knee
 
No Facebook in support of France.
 
YAY! We have so lacked French influence here.
ahem
big Hugo fan here
 
@jolenealaska she's not French, calm down :P
 
dammit
 
@jay ah.
 
Lol - I'm about as French as an American mutt can get.
 
7:48 PM
I was sleepy, and there was that French flag thing.
 
@jolenealaska I can act more French if you like. Excuse me while I take a three hour break.
 
@jay in support of France after the attack...
 
@Jay in support of the french people and victims - not the terror attack!!!
 
@jolenealaska sleepy... I wonder why...
@DebbieM. You'll have to excuse Jay... He's a bit special.
 
7:50 PM
I understand his type :)
 
Jay
haha sorry thats a pretty big typo there
Or is it... perhaps I'm a part of the French Secret Service...
 
I actually stopped in to see if I remembered seeing something. Is there a place we can set up pre formatted comments?
 
shall I quote some Hugo? lighten the mood?
I have Waterloo memorized from Les Miserables
 
@jolenealaska let's not and say we did.
 
spoilsport
at least I recognized the flag
maybe 20% of Americans would actually recognize that
pfffthththt
 
7:55 PM
Truly you are an statesman par excellence
 
2 brownie points for @Jolenealaska for Flag knowledge
 
and I plan to make macarons this weekend
 
Jay
@Jolenealaska colorful macarons?
 
only one color
I tried to do two colors last time and failed spectacularly
 
Jay
@Napoleon Wilson thank you good sir for removing that
 
7:58 PM
blueberry!
 
What a typo.
 
Jay
Haha sometimes im quite daft and dont read over what I type
 
@Jay thanks for brightening my day up, that flag made me laugh :)
 
Jay
@ArtOfCode Haha np. I'm glad to be of service :D
 
Any help on my question?
 
8:00 PM
I'm sorry, what question? (I was asleep at the keyboard)
 
I actually stopped in to see if I remembered seeing something. Is there a place we can set up pre formatted comments?
 
there is supposed to be an app for that.
I'm sorry. I woke up and started singing La Marseillaise, and quoting Les Miserables and Hunchback.
 
I thought I had come across something on the desktop site. Maybe I'm imaging things, it's been known to happen.
 
It's a tick.
No, it's a thing.
I just don't think it works
 
Okay. If it didn't work maybe they killed it in the recent update, I'll stop looking for it.
 
Jay
9:02 PM
lol kinda silly so I subscribed for Men's Health on Amazon for only $15/10 issues
This gives me both digital and physical copy
But i just saw that the physical only option cost $20/10 issue
and the digital only option also cost $20/10 issue
 
Well done.
What will you use it for?
 
Masturbatory purposes I suspect.
 
Jay
lolol
hardly
I dont know. I want to be healthier
 
9:20 PM
I used to think it was gays who bought Men's Health.
Then I found out it was actually bought by straighties wanting to get sixpacks.
Now sure how a magazine would help them, but eh.
 
Jay
What about gay men who want to get sixpacks
they have nice workouts in the magazine
 
@Cerberus Yeah... sitting around on your arse reading a magazine is probably not one of the ways to get a six-pack ;)
 
Jay
and generally looking at really fit men or your "goal" is a motivator
its also has nice articles about health in general, not just to get fit
 
If you want to lose weight, burn more calories than you consume. If you want to build muscle, lift weights of a mass that allows you to perform an exercise 8-12 reps at a time, 3 times, with a 1 minute break in between.
Everything else is fluff.
 
@Jay They, too, probably!
@Catija What, huh, why not?
Next thing you're telling me watching football on the telly doesn't count as exercise.
 
9:28 PM
@Cerberus ... well I mean, I suppose if they made the mag weigh 50 pounds it might work.
 
@ElendilTheTall Agreed. However, placebos work.
@Catija So perhaps Jay should buy the Oxford English Dictionary instead.
 
@Cerberus Not a bad idea.
 
Jay
Blegh, why cant I just have a lot of sex without working out.
lol
 
Well...
Too many things .
 
Hey, are you on SA right now? I'm getting an odd warning in FF and wanted to see if other people were getting the same result...
^see the lock alert?
 
Jay
9:37 PM
@Catija i dont have that issue
 
@Jay If I open in a new tab, I don't either... but that one tab repeatedly gives me the alert.
 
Jay
ah because you are on https instead of http
 
But I'm just navigating the site normally... I didn't do anything to intentionally switch into https.
 
Jay
is lock alert still there when you manually remove the s?
 
@Jay no, it goes away... but shouldn't the sites be https secure?
 
Jay
9:42 PM
that alert usually means the auth certificate isnt verified
what happens when you click on the alert itself
 
user116848
@ElendilTheTall Only one minute break between each set?
 
user116848
Hi @Catija @Cerberus.
 
@Arrowfar Hi :)
 
Jay
SA is able to properly be verified on my comp using FF
 
@Catija In FF, no, but it says "no identify info", and there is no lock at all.
Oh, I was on http.
Switched to https, and now it says "secure" with a lock, no warnings.
@Arrowfar Hi!
 
9:52 PM
@Cerberus Yeah, now it does for me, too... odd.
 
Hmm perhaps a glitch on SE's side.
 
@Arrowfar yeah
How long would you take?
 
user116848
Heh I take more than one minute.
 
user116848
It depends on the weights too I guess. You can't lift heavy with only one minute break. At least I can't.
