Re: The Mafia with the Golden Gun (Day 004)

I don't really think there are "team kills" as much as there are certain people with kill abilities (in the form of guns, etc.), who happen to be on team. I'm not even sure there's a traditional night chat, judging by how unorthodox we've seen this game progress so far.

Re: Definitive rankings of -- french fries?

Am I the only one who likes In-n-out fries?

Ok, I have a caveat though: They are only good if you have them super-fresh and hot. even 15 mins can mean the difference between tasty fries and terrible hot potato sticks.

Re: Today I Made:

Bergmont shortbreads turned out alright. Great with tea or coffee, but not that great on their own. There's this bitter up front taste, that I'm sure is from the pith of the bergmont, but I haven't figured out how to get rid of. I use a microplane to zest, getting as little of the pith as possible. ...

And the problems he cites for the emergency are completely made up, like the drug argument; evidence is crystal clear that the vast majority of drugs come over at ports of entry, not where he's requesting walls be built.

It's bergmont season, and I need to make all the things before the short season is over. So far I've just made my favorite, early grey sticky buns, with assam tea in the dough, and bergmont zest rolled in, simple citrus glaze.
