I especially like the youngster that looks like he was put together using a patchwork of other goats.

There are many brands of frozen sesame rice balls but I buy this one mostly because it has a sticker that says ‘big (rice) balls bring great mouthful satisfaction’

I am gratified that 15 years after writing the denialism blog that the topic of debate with denialists is becoming increasingly sophisticated.

This is not some new invention of course. The first lesson of any media training is you have to understand what you gain from engagement. With conspiracists, there is no benefit.

Mittens: mm, why yes, hooman mom, I will have that bit of butter you’ve just offered me, nom, nom… wait a sec, is that a pill I just licked? Haha, nice try, a**hole! Ptew, I spit it out.

My pretty successful attempt to duplicate a cocktail I had in Paris.

1.5 oz gin
.75 oz elderflower liquor
.75 oz lime
.5 oz simple syrup
4 slices English cucumber

Muddle cucumber in the bottom of your shaker. Add remaining ingredients and ice and shake until chilled. Double strain into your glass of choice (straight up in Paris, on a nice block of ice in a tumbler at home). You could probably garnish with a slice of cuke if you were feeling fancy.

Some fun acts going forward. Congrats to all the finalists, see ya Saturday!

Queen Machine 😍
