|May-08-17|| ||offramp: Tomatoes a la Sir Edward Grey Hommage
Take some fine firm tomatoes, not very ripe. Turn them with the stalk side up and cut a slice off the top with a sharp knife. Take out the inside with a teaspoon. Break into each tomato a pullet's egg, sprinkle with pepper and salt. The inside of the tomato you will pass through a fine wire sieve and it will be a thick liquor; mix it with bread-crumbs, salt, pepper, and some grated cheese till quite thick. Put this mixture on the top of each egg and place all in the oven for three or four minutes, so that the eggs are only just set and no more.

Take your cauliflower, >
I forgot to buy cauliflower!
Dang, that irks me. It's all because I put away the grocery list when I only had two items to go.
|May-09-17|| ||offramp: Dear <theGoodAnarchist>, I know that you like a good laugh, as I do. The recipes I come out with (except for Tomatoes a la Sir Edward Grey Hommage, which is real) are from this fantastic page:
If I am down, that page always gives me a huge laugh. Sometimes I tweak them a bit and post them here at chessgames.
|May-09-17|| ||thegoodanarchist: < offramp: Dear <theGoodAnarchist>, I know that you like a good laugh>|
I do enjoy a good laugh, but I was not joking this time! I indeed forgot to buy cauliflower, and for a particular recipe I have in mind.
And thank you for the link.
|May-09-17|| ||thegoodanarchist: FRICANDEAU OF MUTTON DRESSED CAULIFLOWER:
Place shaped carrots in some ordinary white wine. Then place two hard-boiled eggs into neat rounds and brush with lemon-juice.
Simmer a side dish, and drop the meat in. Next put the yolks of good golden by the water, chopped, then put some potatoes with two carrots, one lemon, and if you can, fry in a well-buttered frying-pan.
Next dust a steak, shred it in, cook it about five minutes, with a lemon, and pour in butter, flavor it in the fire to turn the usual kinds, in small quantity of milk.
Sweeten the slices of one and salt. Roll them in a good shape, not over done lest it is any veal in haste, and pass it out, garnished with pepper.
|May-09-17|| ||thegoodanarchist: And now for some spiritual inspiration:
And lo, there came into the lintel, upon you your father, and sat on for the way which Jehovah said unto my law, or how saidst thou, that she saw that she conceived, and his brethren be male and Accad, and ten asses with Abram moved his brethren to the evil report of Israel out of the waters.
|May-09-17|| ||thegoodanarchist: And forget ye not, that which the prophet hath spake:|
"take you treasure in our God, Behold, my sister, be gone; and I not answer him; but lay up the son Isaac. But flesh in the second month Abib. And Judah said unto him also. And they rose up, and Accad, and begat Mehujael: and his brethren;
For He redeemed me out his sons' wives that is this? that thou wilt hold on the pillar, and yielded up a few in the seventh day that thou fearest God, lest ye have gotten a handmaid. In the ark. And God made him according to be found, he had"

Steak and veal dusted with lemon and milk.
It takes me back to my days at the Sorbumme.
|May-11-17|| ||offramp: I always imagine these recipes being made by a man with a moustache, whose face and arms (for some reason) are covered in flour, and he is angrily turning the pages back and forth.|
|May-12-17|| ||thegoodanarchist: Why is he angry? Did he always dream of becoming a banker, but was forced into the hospitality industry by an overbearing father?|
|May-12-17|| ||offramp: I imagine him as angry because he is unable to accurately follow the clear instructions.|
|May-12-17|| ||offramp: "I am one quarter Jamiroquois"...
Some people have scoffed at this.
My Great Grandmother was Stupid Bloody Television, and my Great Grandfather was Two Thousand Channels And There's Nothing On.

For some, scoffing is a hobby.

SEAWEED SHRAPNEL CELESTES (Hommage à Lionel Adalbert Bagration Felix Kieseritzky.)
Gently stew a teacupful of fruit with macaroni AND cut the fruit if, just before you take one like this for a nourishing basis of butter.
One uses a slice of sugar to put in to the soup with a few cups of minced parsley.
Then poach in a gentle oven for the Belgians. Every now and then pour in a few breadcrumbs, and a lemon, and put them in water that time that has absorbed all cook this time about a sieve; or, failing that, a dinner.
M. LUCK. HORS D'OEUVRES
Cook a little spice. Turn out the threads from the fillet of two pounds of lentils or three eggs. Then throw away the tomato.

You're right - it definitely adds something.
|May-16-17|| ||zanzibar: Seaweed on <CG>?! |
Here's my most favorite seaweed song of all time:
<Dulaman - Altan>
(Complete with both sets of lyrics)
Another version, well worth a listen as well:
Still, I must admit to being totally in love with Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh's voice/version.
|May-17-17|| ||thegoodanarchist: <zanzibar: Seaweed on <CG>?!|
Here's my most favorite seaweed song of all time:>
<Zanzi> you are so sophisticated!
*I* didn't even know there were any songs about seaweed, and you've gone and chosen a favorite!
This is why I don't get invited to the hot parties.

"To the Land Surveyor at the Bridge
I appreciate the surveys you have carried out so far. The work of your assistants is praiseworthy too; you know how to keep them busy. Do not desist from your zealous labours! Bring the work to a happy conclusion! Any interruption would be irksome to me.
Furthermore, rest assured that the matter of your remuneration will be decided very soon. I am keeping an eye on you."
- Franz Kafka.

6th Match - Bangladesh v New Zealand
Clontarf Cricket Club Ground, Dublin.
Question: "How will New Zealand fare against Bangladesh?"
2 Cards: 7 SWORDS; 4 BATONS.
Interpretation: A win for New Zealand, but very close.
Very odd that the 4 batons turned up twice. I shuffled the cards fully between deals.
|May-22-17|| ||offramp: I had a good idea for a very short horror story which I shall now proceed to relate unto you.
Two one-legged guys are talking. man A tells how he lost his leg. Every few weeks Man A suffered from agonising pain in his lower right leg. Doctors were useless and so were quacks. One day the pain was so bad that he paid a guy to cut off the limb. To his horror he developed phantom limb syndrome and the pain in his leg was even worse than before. The other unidexter yells at him: "You idiot! You should have had it cut off when it didn't hurt, like I did!"|
|May-24-17|| ||thegoodanarchist: I don't know what to say in reply to that one.|
|May-25-17|| ||offramp: I do some things here at chessgames.com just for my own amusement, but I have decided to share the following one because I thought it was very funny.|
If you look at P Littlewood vs D Norwood, 1985, which is today's GoTD, have a look at the games collections at the bottom of the page.
Look for the title <OUR DRESSES WILL GET FILTHY>. It is from my Game Collection: Games That FredTheBear likes.
I noticed that User: fredthebear tends to go a bit manic with some games. Have a look at the bottom of A Muzychuk vs Zhao Xue, 2016 for example.
So I made a collection of his favourite games, but with my own titles.
