Or add them various porridgy things - sweet or savoury. I sometimes just cook some semolina with water and butter and when it's nearly done add an egg - adding just whites would be fine.

Mix with a little milk and make French toast/pain perdu.

Shakshuka would work with just egg whites.

Omelettes. People pay extra for egg white omelettes.

You can do savoury meringues if it's the sweet that you aren't keen on.

Egg drop soup - which can be in any soup. Just get it hot, stir it around and drizzle the egg whites in.

You can use them as a binder in lots of things - mix with oats and water and fry as oatcakes, for instance.

I would totally believe Carbonated Waffle Balls.


Pascal - are you sure you want to do that? Really sure? I think this way is safer.

C - whoo-hoo! I trust you, what could go wrong? This'll be fun!


People throw clothes away? The life-cycle of clothes is:
wear out of the house
wear around the house
cat bedding or dust/cleaning rag

By the time it gets thrown away, it's not even clothes anymore.

boots have a slightly different life cycle:
dress boots
everyday boots
fighting boots
strapping leather

That EPA stat always boggles my mind.

Well, I must be retaining water at the moment since my wedding ring doesn't fit this morning.

Okay there's something really cool I've just learned. If you are continuously recording air pressure e.g. as part of your home automation setup or a weather station then you should really check the data of the last 24h.
You should be able to spot the pressure wave from the volcanic explosion in Tonga earlier today.

It reached my setup in Kaiserslautern at about 20:30.


There are bits of Heinlein that informed my thinking. Cyrano de Bergerac resonates for me. The Three Muskeeteers (books, and Richard Lester movies - I refuse to acknowledge the existence of other film adaptations) were important.

There are others ...

Yesterday was my first time back in the office since ... hmm ... 24 December. So it was the first time I had my rings on since then, so I don't put them on if I'm not leaving the house.

They're good rings.

Pretty straightforward, actually. Did anyone have any tentacles they shouldn't have? (Generally, any number of tentacles greater than zero was cause for concern.)

WFRP had lots of Chaos contamination that could lead to mutation, you know;-)

Good times.

I ran a Warhammer FRP game once where every night's camp involved 'tentacle check.'

A different dnd game involved 'Brother Fisty' and his barbarian girlfriend, a magic gauntlet, and 'feats of strength'.

Details upon request;-)



But we did get the police called out to a cast party once (toga, natch), because the tech crew included the pyro team and we announced our arrival with 'splosions.
