Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

One of our three big days here at Rancho Paley has come and gone, the Carnivore's Feast, a day of culinary delights primarily proteinaceous, though supported by our friends' creative side dishes and potables.

This was the thirteenth time we've had the event, and you'd think we'd have seen it all. Nope. This was the first time we had rain. Thirteen years ago, I promised my wife that if it rained, I'd stand out there and cook. It never happened...so yesterday, that's just what I did.

There's a video on FB where I was taped, wringing out the sleeve of my (fourth) shirt that was completely soaked.

The food was good, or so I'm told, and the company fine and friendly.

So, soon we'll be off to Dungeonmaster!

This morning, waiting for the rental crew to pick up the bounce house/jumpy tent/whatever, I finished reading a Charles Stross novel set in The Laundry series (James Bond/Cthulhu mythos crossover), and it was as good as the previous novels in the series. The protagonist is rising in the bureaucracy of The Laundry as this book denotes. New book in the saga later this year; well-worth reading the whole shebang!
