Secret Hobo Spices?

Blackened Tilapia with Secret Hobo Spices

"I found this recipe in the pocket of a sleeping hobo lying by the railroad tracks. Where a hobo gets Tilapia from I have no clue."

I may have to cook this...

Wilford Brimley!
Tuesday. 2.23.10 1:02 pm
So in a fit of blah, I decided I would take up a recruiter on a phone-job.

I figure it is something, the pay isn't bottom of the barrel, and it gets me out of the house.

Of course in my "sure, yes, let's go", I realize that I have no clue who I am going to be phoning for.

I drive across town to have a pee. I drive to and fro to fill out some paperwork.

I prematurely publish this entry.

So today I get a call from a woman, who wants me to go fill out some more paperwork, and to tell me that I'm being emailed a typing test. (erh? Typing test? Let me tell you about how I finished my typing class a semester early in middle school... >.> Anyway.)

Who is this lady calling from?
Who do I get to indirectly work with? (for the same company, obvs)
Why am I so excited about this? (seriously, I shouldn't be)
(damnit I answered the question already. :/)
Wilford Brimley!

But it's not the lady and her free cookbook. Ah well.

a Not-rant.
Monday. 2.22.10 10:59 am
Because my past two entries have been ranty, here is a not-rant.

But first I need something to not-rant about. Let's see how long that takes. It's 10.59a, EST.

Ok, 11.02a EST: I have found a knock-off snuggie with pockets! I need to find some SF4 material, and maybe add a pocket to my fugket...

I found a contest, to win some ridiculous amount of jewelry... or maybe one really big jewelry. It requires adding a badge to your page, and I found one that fits my page perfectly. I like how I can reorder modules in order, but not sequentially.

Right now they are labeled 0, 2, 3, 4... Where's 1?

It is probably important to check out this place's wares if I am to try to win $5k in shiny stuff.
Yee haw!
This would be better in purple or black.

I'm not really seeing what I would spend 5k on... maybe I would buy other people gifts. "Look at this great thing I got you! Isn't it shiny?"

People would love me. >.>

Now I am reading about ailments of unknown etiology. Hrm.

The weather was nice, but now it's gone back to crap. I wish winter was over already. And I don't mean date-winter, March 22 is never really *spring*, it's just calendar-spring.
And I hope to counter this winter, this summer is nice. By nice I mean 80+, daily. Because seriously, this high-of-75 summer business? That's not summer. Not at all. No way, no how. Nuh uh. Now I'm ranting again.

And so I went to check out the farmer's almanac long range forecast.

Annual weather summary from 11-09 to 10-10: Winter will be slightly colder and drier than normal, with below-normal snowfall. The coldest periods will occur in early to mid-January and mid-February. The snowiest periods will be around Thanksgiving, in late December, mid- to late January, early and mid-February, and early March.

April and May will be much warmer and slightly drier than normal, despite a cool and wet start to April.

Summer will be slightly cooler and drier than normal, with the hottest periods in mid-June, mid-July, and early to mid-August.

September and October will be warmer and drier than normal.

FFS, no more snow! Also, I thought they said below normal. If this is below normal... I don't want to see normal. No way, no how!

Como se dice "rant" en español?
Sunday. 2.21.10 10:11 pm
Currently I am grumpy. Still. This has been brewing pre-calories woman, post-other-calories-woman.

I would LOVE to know why it is that people seem to think that somehow getting married is going to solve ALL of any problems you may have.

Feeling down, completely unrelated to your relationship? You should get married.
Pissed off because of people giving you shit? Obviously get down to the courthouse and sign some papers.
Feeling bored? Get married.
Sick? Marriage.
Need a job? Get hitched.
Itchy? Obviously it is because you are unmarried and living in sin. Obviously.
Bad hair day? I think you know the answer to that.

Oh, but you can just go down to the courthouse and spend $30! it's not that big of a deal!

Because yes, all of a person's problems can be solved by sealing the deal! Maybe I'm not ready or he's not ready or someone's not ready or maybe it's just not time for it to happen or god forbid it's been discussed that things "should" happen a certain way (have they been? I don't know, and it's not pressing), or even no, it's just not the time for it yet, but it will miraculously solve ALL of my problems.

I've taken to hanging up on them/ignoring them, because no amount of "butt out" will make them stop. I don't even want to talk to these people, because it's always going to end up being the same. I ate something that didn't agree with me and my insides are funny. Oh they know what will fix that: GETTING MARRIED!

It makes me feel like I should be sending these people 3 easy payments of $29.95 + S&H for sharing their wondrous knowledge with me...

FOOD (but not really)
Friday. 2.19.10 1:45 pm
Because this is maybe too weighty? ranty? heavy??? (after the fact, weighty was not an intended pun, but now it is. As was heavy... :D ) for the shoutfoodbox, I will put it here.

What is the issue with women telling me about their caloric intake?

Seriously. People I know and completely random strangers!

Today I am getting the oil and such changed in Dave's car, and this random woman is telling me how hungry she is, but she doesn't want to waste her calories on the peanut butter crackers in the vending machine.


I shit you not, the word "calories" came out of her mouth. WHY is this word becoming part of daily public conversation?! With strangers?! What in the hell?! (Interrobang?!) Keep it in your head, your diet book, in science class, but FFS I don't want to hear about your eating.

I totally agree, if you're hungry, you want to eat something worthwhile. But if you're HAWNGRAY (or hangry), eat something! If it is not what you want, or if you're on a diet, don't go around saying "well the calories!" and then complain that you're hungry. If you're on a special (no-x-for-fear-of-intestinal-distress-or-death) diet, then you're well within your liberty to not eat whatever you can scrounge. Usually in that case you're going to carry around an oh-shit-I-need-sustenance bar or bag or something.

But just as a random person going on about calories? Do you realize that maybe it's not the calories you should worry about, but the other crap? You know, the dyes, HFCS, allergens, frogs...

I can understand if you are recovering from a disease that requires you to eat a certain amount per sitting/day/meal, but at that point, I would hope that you are not a stranger if you're going to discuss it with me. I could understand if maybe you HAD to eat or die (which you do). Within reason, I can understand watching your overall intake, to make sure you're not one of those "John Blobberson consumes 60,000 calories a day! That's 30 times more than the average person, (other useless math here) !!!!" sorts of people, and so they don't make you a headless fatty or zoom in on you biting into a doughnut or perhaps even have your picture posted on lookatthisfatperson.com, BUT A PACKET OF PEANUT BUTTER CRACKERS WILL NOT BE YOUR DEATH! (unless you are deathly allergic to peanuts, at which point you would probably have not even considered them)

The other thing I've noticed, is that the people I've encountered that like to bandy around "calories" like they are talking about the weather, is that they do it like they are on some superior moral ground or something. Not like "oh I am eating to make sure I am in the state in which I feel my best" (you know, not dead), but "oh, so I have eaten n calories today! I'm doing so good/bad".

The third thing I've noticed with all of this, is that the only people I have EVER heard use "calories" in casual conversation (i.e., not talking about sick people/dietary restrictions) have been women. FFS, are you trying to tell me something? Am I getting fat? Or am I supposed to automagically understand your plight, because everyone knows that all women diet all the time? I'm not certain.

Screw you. I will have one of each, plz. (ok, maybe not... some of that stuff makes me retch, but that's not the point)

Rah! Yoshya! Doshita doshita! Orararararara!
Saturday. 2.13.10 6:22 pm
I was compelled to go to FYE today to see if they still sold video games, even though I didn't think they did (and semi-remembered Dave's friend telling us a story about when they stopped).

Walking through the store, I found a Holly Madison(ex playboy girl) calendar, which was perfect to replace my yearly-scantily-clad-woman calendar.

They had a Street Fighter IV calendar, but as it was lacking the wonder that is Dan Hibiki, I had to leave it.

We continued looking, and found a SFIV "comfortable, cozy fleece blanket with convenient sleeves" for $10. What a deal!

So I bought it.

I get home, and there is Dan! but I can't find Ziggy. :( (later: Ziggy is hiding on the shoulder, opposite Blanka)

So I will regale you with the awesomeness that is Dan Hibiki.

SFIV taunt:

Puzzle Fighter Taunt:

Dan vs. Magikarp:

Dan vs. Haruhi. O.O

I need a Mugen box. That is all.
