The other day, we hit one of our favorite Korean restaurants. As usual, I was torn between ordering something tried and true or going with something new. And, as usual, I decided to do both –
On the home front, I’ve been experimenting in the kitchen as well, often with recipes from Gordon Ramsay’s The F Word. Today’s lunch was a seabass with warm potatoes and rosemary –
While dinner was a Costa Brava fish stew –
Since I’ve hopefully got your appetites going, I thought I’d offer up this little tidbit/spoiler from a forthcoming episode of Stargate: Universe’s second season –
Lewis writes: “Before being assigned to Icarus, were Young and/or Telford members of SG teams?”
Answer: Nope. As far as we’ve discussed, they were on off-world assignment together at some point in their past but no mention of whether or not they were on a specific SG team.
Lewis also writes: “Which brings up another question (sorry), at its height how many SG teams were there running around the SGC?”
Answer: Again, we were never specific about the number of SG teams but, at one point, I believe there were upwards of twenty to twenty-five teams in active off-world rotation.

Answer: Hey. Chev, thanks for the list. I have visited Venus Fort, Akihabara, and a Maid Cafe in my previous trips. The Parasite Museum was also in my last in past visits, but it’s way out of the way in Meguro.
Lisa R. writes: “If you find out about renewal in January, when would you start filming season 3? And when would it premiere? Next fall?”
Answer: No idea at this point. I imagine we’d start production in February. As for when we’d premiere – that would be up to the network.
Joan001 writes: “We see boxes in your office, Robert Cooper, Linda & Remi, leaving, and probably others that you haven’t written about…not to mention, not a word about ideas for season 3.”
Answer: I explained the boxes in yesterday’s post (in fact, if you go back to previous entries featuring my office, you’ll always seem boxes in the BG), Rob Cooper left months ago before we’d even premiered, Linda and Remi headed back to L.A. because they completed their script work for the year. No mention of season 3 because we’re still working on season 2. Around this time in season 1, we weren’t discussing season 2 either.
Joan001 also writes: “I would still like to know how your sister’s Siberian is doing with the knee problems.”
Answer: Aspen is doing alright but is still dealing with a host of little issues. Poor boy.
Thornyrose writes: “Also note you’re reading Dune. Hope you give us your take on that particular work.”
Answer: It was a fine book.
Raynan writes: “I’d still not say it is the “generally positive nature of the stories” that might be the problem. After all, an anthology of “near-future pessimistic (or dystopian) science fiction” would also kill the suspense right on the cover.”
Answer: I’d have the same problem with that version as well.
Jadeski writes: “Also, I’m heading down to New York on my own, and I was wondering how you find all those people to eat with when you go to Tokyo?”
Answer: I hit a lot of the city’s dessert shops, chat with the usually female staff, and try to be as charming as possible.
