Have you ever tried to wash dishes in a sink with one of those filters installed? Maddening. They take up ridiculous amounts of room.

In other news, I fucking hate the APA.

Dammit, people, if you don't go out and buy one of these, Pur might have a bad quarter! And that might have a ripple effect in the stock market! Buy! Buy! Buy!

Gonerill: My deepest sympathies for your tragic circumstances.

Has anything particularly bad happened, or just the usual APA nonsense?

Just the usual. I should have said in the other thread, "Christmas is you spouse buggering off to Baltimore at 4am on the 27th, leaving you and the kids at home with headcolds."

The league's decision to simulcast the game came amid mounting Congressional pressure to make the potentially historic game more broadly available.

Sweet.

Gonerill has a bacon sprouts recipe? Someone please re-post the link. I have one as well that I made for Christmas dinner. It also incorporates shallots and a balsamic glaze.

Brussel sprouts and bacon: two great tastes that taste great together.

Ah, yes. Thanks, Teo. That is indeed an excellent way to make brussel sprouts. The recipe I mentioned above is basically the same procedure, except you add some quartered shallots to the sprouts and you add a splash of balsamic vinegar in the last 10 minutes of cooking.
