Commit log #7

Three good things:

1. A task at work turned out to be simpler and easier than I expected it to be. Things really have gotten better on the technical front these past years. Of course, I’d be worried if they didn’t. So I’m pleased; tomorrow I get to tackle the final piece of the puzzle to a side project (the first of many) to keep myself happy in a low-impact position.

2. TEA TEA TEA TEA TEA TEA TEA TEA TEA TEA (to be covered in a separate tea post). New teas, old teas, nommy teas.

3. I’ve been eating square dinners that I’m preparing myself instead of going out. In particular, I used this recipe over a weekend: Busy Day Barbeque Brisket. It holds out really well, and it’s the first time I’ve ever used a spice rub on meat. Perfect for the slow cooker, though next time I’m going to get a real brisket cut.

A thing I like about myself:

  • I communicate well… in a lot of situations, not all of them. I can really add punch, even in a single tweet. Non-fiction is my forte; now if only I could transfer that over to fiction somehow.

Life thingies:

Linkara made a very valid criticism of the character of Spider-Man:

But Peter never changes as a result of his actions. He just makes the same mistakes over and over.

The character himself still seems to operate like he’s in high school—never growing up, never seems to recognize adult relationships, and never actually taking responsibility for his life and the choices he’s made.

Ow. That sounds like me. Depressing.

I need to reboot.

  1. Sounds like you’ve rebooted already.

    Spice rubs are an unlikely magic. How can the dry stuff on the outside penetrate all the way through? Also, the cheaper the meat, the better it works (until it’s too fatty to eat).

    • That’s good, because I sure as heck wasn’t about to pay $20 a pound for steak, so I made do with a $4 bottom cut. Cheap cuts are quite good in the slow cooker, so long as you trim them reasonably.
