Meatball with mustard on bread for lunch, hachee for dinner. I'm happy too.
If the hachee is on mash, like on the wiki, I'd be happy as well. :)

I ate it with rice instead of potatoes. Everyone else ate it on mash  :)

I like to open up 26 oz. cans of Spaghettios and eat it straight from the can without cooking it.
I can do the same with baked beans. And frankfurters. Together or separately. Oink, oink. :D
Second the baked beans, especially the ham sauce variety. Also cream of chicken soup. I draw the line at cold pizza, though. Leftover pizza HAS to be reheated.

Also I was thinking, if anyone happens to know, is Easter weekend a good time to be in Paris or you'd rather avoid it?
I'd avoid Paris like the plague. But then I'd do that at all times, not only at Easter.
I know I know very touristy the epitome of it etc etc but with only three weeks vacation a year and the choice. Of an extended weekend there on the way home it's not as terrible to me.

Bacon and eggs over hard for lunch, pancakes and sausage links for dinner. I slept through breakfast, but I compensated well.

I like my Spaghettios with Vienna Sausages.

What would you do if you met an Orthodox man with Pope for his last name?

(No, it's not my last name, for the record)

Looks like I'm getting pidgeon-holed into going to a LAC I hate rather than the state university I love that didn't give me a big enough scholarship.

Very, very angry right now.

Years ago my brother was accepted by MIT, but couldn't afford to go even with scholarships.  He went to a state school and couldn't afford that either.  College is most about making money these days.  It is very sad.

I went to university for free. The process of getting in, however, was majorly PTSD-inducing.

Just going to a few atheist forums tonight...and my observation is that they are surprisingly worse than the conservatives that dialogue here. To think I gave them bit of a leverage...

Eradicating folks that believe in religion? Seriously?

Some of the stuff is just appalling.

Oh and why did I go? To check the pulse on internet atheism.

Same boring ridiculous recycled arguments with next to no real thought or really anything truly interesting worth discussing.

If you are going to eliminate religion, at least have something in place that is worthwhile.

I called most internet atheists as angry degenerates a couple years ago.

I was proved correct tonight.

If I had to I'd opt for a combination of Academic Skepticism (probably Carneades) combined with some diluted form of hedonism (say, Carpocrates-lite)...  The worthwhile part is in happiness, which is worthwhile to me, anyway...  8)

Have you ever shared your politics on this board?

I used to participate in the politics section, but for my sanity I stopped  ;D  Most conservatives would label me a socialist, but I'd just settle for liberal (in the modern American sense).

William, have you considered moving to Texas and then after a year or however long it is, attending the University of Texas at Austin? First rate university, extremely inexpensive compared to anything on the Shaky Side or on the Dirty Side.

It used to be a sound decision to go to college, then seek work.

But times have changed. It's now often a very unwise decision, as to one's financial health, freedom of movement, palette of life choices, even work opportunities. Every person's case is different, of course.  But it ain't 1980 anymore!

By the way, "Shaky Side" is what truckers used to call the West Coast, "Dirty Side" the East Coast.

Top marks to Twinings customer services, that took one minute flat to sort out a borked order. Boo to BT for the atrocious phone line.

I'm sad because the Dutch translation of Cavafy's work isn't released yet. According to the publisher it should have been released 5 days ago. It's a Dutch-Greek edition of all his poems, even including those outside the canon, and I want it :(

Not yet sure if its celebratory, but I learned today a transfer I was hoping for was approved today.  If all goes well, I will be moved from the current role into a more "tactical" role by next weeks end.  Far too early to say if this is the right move, but a fella can hope!

Nobody told me it was World Book Day. After my interview, I'm off to the store!  ;D

The official day is tomorrow, at least here in the UK (not sure if it's the same date worldwide). But since I was in town, I picked up the books anyway. Those I'm pretty sure are UK-only goodies! ;)

You do - just time-delayed.

Steve Jobs was wrong, after all.
