August 2, 2021: Montreal in Pictures, Part 2!

Mom's famed mussels and potatoes.  She used to do a version of this with artichokes too.  A whole to-do. The occasionally spicy fried peppers.  You never know.  Mom always harkens back to that visit my face turned beet red eating one of these. The crab mousse.  Another Mallozzi tradition. Here's the secret recipe.   Shhhhhhhhh.…

July 30, 2021: Montreal-Bound!

Montreal-bound! Union Station Good old Train 64.  Old - for sure.  Good?  Not so much. Japanese-style. Korean-style. https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1421151421626560522 https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1421156694453899278 https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1421160749595041793 Traveling by VIA Rail - would NOT recommend. Finally, on the Montreal home front...  

July 29, 2021: Travel Plans!

Montreal-bound tomorrow and I'll be taking the scenic route, traveling via VIA Rail.  This will be my first train trip, but I imagine it'll be something like this... Or something close. This will be the longest Akemi and I have been separated since...hell, I can't even remember.  Also, it's going to be weird sleeping without…

July 27, 2021: Happy Birthday, SG-1!

So, on the one hand...but on the other hand... Well, all things being equal... Today's Yes/No... https://twitter.com/brittlestar/status/1417232881714405384 Oh, I definitely want to try this. Happy Birthday to Stargate: SG-1! https://twitter.com/StargateNow_EU/status/1420051362939695108 What was the first episode of SG-1 you watched?  Were you onboard from the very beginning? I have to admit, I came to it late(r).…

July 24, 2021: In case you missed it…

Today, I sat down with host Kevin Fukunaga for his Scripts & Scribes broadcast.  I fielded questions about showrunning, Dark Matter, Stargate, and, of course, Kpop... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X5UsGEIJ8cA Well this is an interesting article.  Could that cup you're drinking out of have consciousness? https://www.salon.com/2021/07/23/panpsychism-the-idea-that-inanimate-objects-have-consciousness-gains-steam-in-science-communities/ Today's Yes/No... https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1418934783783186441 Meanwhile, on the home front... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Gnrx63R61U

July 23, 2021: Well that’s a wrap on week 28!

https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1418659569258188804 Tacos with Totoro's Mei-chan... The Barbacoa.  The Pollo al Pastor.  And, for dessert, the Tres Leches (Campechano)  We took a walk to work off lunch.  And then stopped to replenish our energy... Dessert #2 - The Pancake Cereal Sundae (Butter Baker) I crashed as soon as I got home.  Too much sun I suppose.…

July 22, 2021: Pushing my luck! Down for dill! Travel by train!

https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1418297390788923393 That should read "last C-Drama she watched". https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1418301459695906817 https://twitter.com/SaraBahama/status/1418303470998753283 Today's Yes/No... https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1418186928814501889 Gotta admit, I'm not averse to pickle and dill-flavored sweets.  There was a neighborhood pop-up that was offering a pickle soft serve last summer.  I was meaning to try it out but just never got around to doing so. Thinking of going…

June 20, 2021: Stargate Mondays, Natto Ice Cream, Pitches and Projects!

https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1417601010940485636 The start of the week just isn't the same without the Dark Matter Monday stream with the gang at Orville Nation.  But, for Stargate fans, there's THIS - https://twitter.com/nation_orville/status/1416549123902394377 I won't be a regular panelist on this one, but I WILL make it a point to drop by.  And you should too! Today's Yes/No...…

July 17, 2021: The Saturday Report!

Finally tracked down our second pfizer vaccines yesterday.  It only took about three hours of walking around the city to get it done.  The doctor who administered my shot advised me to steer clear of alcohol for the weekend - but I'm assuming that does not apply to bourbon-laced chocolate ice cream.  I feel a…
