    Laissez le bon temps rouler!

    He and I have had a few exchanges here on food. The guy knows his stuff. Recently, I hosted a dinner where one of my LSU friends was paying off a bet by being my sous chef. We had dinner for 10, and there were 7 colleges represented at the table, so I did a dish for each college: Country ham with arugula and soft cheese (UVA) Deep fried gumbo risotto balls with fresh cajun mayo (LSU) Hot creamy blue crab on homemade soft pretzel (U of Delaware) Homemade 4-cheese ravioli with marinara (Providence) Wild Boar Osso Buco with roasted shallots and choron sauce (U of Michigan) Wild game cassoulet (Gettysburg) The Sweet Taste of Victory - Rum-soaked orange supremes, chocolate mousse, sweetened whipped cream and a homemade truffle coated in edible gold leaf (ND) It was some of the best food I've ever made, and most everything was an original with only a few recipe consultations. The Michigan dish was ridiculously good -- figured a wild boar was as close as I could get to a wolverine. And that was my first time making a cassoulet, for which I braised a whole rabbit, confitted 4 duck legs and roasted a venison loin. The reason for the rum-soaked oranges was that the bet was a payoff from the 2018 Citrus Bowl. Great fun.

    Mardi Gras Street Cam

    She is modeling her product now. It is subtle, but as the temperature has risen, she has shed some clothing.

    Ah, the good old days -- wiped out like memories of Mardi Gras days gone by.

    It is. Mardi Gras does not discriminate.

    Also, what happened to 2001 through 2005 on this board? I'm sure it's been discussed in another thread, but my 20,000 "content" got knocked down to 2,000. Disrepectin' us silverbacks.

Starry starry night Portraits hung in empty halls While she slowly licks my balls With eyes that watch my taint and can't forget Like strangers that she's blown I'm an old rock star in ragged clothes My hardened snake goes up her nose Her nostrils broken in the virgin snow Now I understand what you tried to say to me How you suffered for your vanity And you lived off me for free They would not listen, they're not listening still Perhaps they never will

    Kitchen Gadgets

    Sharp knife. Cutting board. Pot or pan. As far as gadgetry, an ice cream scoop has a lot of uses (see, e.g., Bill Murray in Stripes), as does a melonballer.

    Your top three athletes that you watched

    If we are talking about seeing them in person, I'll go with the following: Reggie Bush - Saw him play in the infamous "Bush Push" game at Notre Dame. I've probably been to close to 100 college football games, and I have never seen a player who looked so much faster and more skilled than anyone else on the field. Mike Schmidt - I had Phillies season tickets. People forget that Schmidt was so much more than a slugger. He was an exceptional fielder, hitter and had good speed for a big guy. Michael Phelps - Had the pleasure of seeing Phelps swim at the 2004 National Championships in California (I was there on business). I was there for 1 session, and saw him win the 400 IM (all strokes) which he won by about 5 bodylengths. It was crazy.

    I will throw out a prediction that she was texting or otherwise occupied by her phone. Bold, I know.

    This old curmudgeon agrees wholeheartedly.

    oil changes

    5K. 2005 minivan with 149K miles on it. I've had to change out only one coil, so the plan is working (knocks wood).
