I guess to touch the scallop with his penis.

Hijacking the thread -- an old yahoo email account of mine just started sending out spam to my contacts. (A) sorry if that includes any of you and (B) is there anything useful for me to do other than change my password?

Which I've already done, to be clear.

That place delivers in sf. I like it but my kids hate it so I don't think I will get it very much.

I should think the size of commas would depend very much on font.

Still, the article, prose style notwithstanding, does make me want to try the place.

I couldn't quite bring myself to type "...always leaves my mouth feeling dirty afterwards" but that was the better joke.

So, tonight I had some new colleagues over to my house with their nice child, and I don't know what they eat, but I have heard them say they like good Mexican. So I figure, doing tacos, beans, rice, cookies for dessert, and strawberry margarita mix with optional alcohol is a nice dinner. I'll put everything in tiny little bowls all over the dining table and everyone can take what they want.

It ended up looking like a crazy science experiment. I think there were like 20 bowls of toppings and condiments for tacos, and it was completely unnavigable. Inevitably, there were things that were not a hit with the kid, due to some out-there offerings on my part, but there were also so many things that no one could even try everything.

That is to say, first-time dinner hosting is kind of stressful, and I did a very intense job of it. Afterwards, we had a nice cup of coffee and played some softball and a board game so the evening wasn't entirely crazy-seeming.

(Except maybe next time have some of the margaritas while you're cooking. That way you'll probably get lazy after ten or fifteen bowls. And that means fewer dishes to wash.)

The kid did like the fajita-style tofu and the mushrooms, which I did not expect to be hits. I'm a little bit humblebragging here because it was fucking delicious, but enough food for like 10 people.

16: That sounds great.

Don't expect them to reciprocate on the same level, though; the only guaranteed reward of awesome hosting is glory.

Wait... softball?! After all that?

19: Humblebragging? I can't find the part where you say you did anything less than perfectly.

It's okay to just call it a brag, you know,

So you won't need to cook for yourself for a few days. Feature, not bug.

Seriously. No one has ever left a party complaining of too much food.
