My legs hurt, but last night was totally worth it. It was nice to go out with friends for the first time in months.

It looks like sausage gravy is supposed to look. Biscuits and gravy are delicious, but I'm not sure about that stuff.

It makes my head hurt trying to understand what a biscuit is, but I think it's something like a savoury scone, or other kind of non-sweet but kind of hard cakey bread thing. I don't think there's a good British analogy, and I have less idea if there's a good European one.

But yes. That gravy. It looks unholy.

It's basically a flaky bread made with butter or shortening, milk (buttermilk is best), and flour. They are similar to scones, but never have anything baked into them, and my experience with scones is that they tend to be fairly dense and crumble easily whereas biscuits are generally lighter than scones and don't crumble.

Sausage gravy is one of the greatest tasting foods known to man.

That picture doesn't resemble anything I've ever eaten, and from the recipe it is sort of dumplings but with butter instead of suet :D Which still makes it kind of different. And, besides, everyone knows cobblers are for pudding!

I thought biscuits were another term for crackers, and cookies are generally those with choco chips.

That gravy sounds more like a sort of ragout... When I make gravy, it's just from the fat of the meat (and sometimes some of that powder). I rarely eat it though, but my sister likes it...

I was going to try to do some translating on the whole biscuit/cookie thing before I remembered that I kind of struggle to remember what a US biscuit is like, or if there are even really many things in the US that would fall under the UK biscuit category. I think I really have gone native...

I need the help of the collected meandering fora:

I am making a new disc for my alarm clock (it plays CDs as the alarm!) and I need the most inspirational song possible so that when it goes off, I get up and go to the gym instead of hitting snooze and saying "I'll go to the gym tomorrow". Preferably a song that's awesome right from the beginning. My last ones have been "Bastard's Waltz" by the Cancer Bats, and "Heterosexual Man" by the Odds.

@ snow picnic: Dressed for snow*, it really shouldn't be a problem. It's also probably a good idea to have it circulate around something warm (tea? hot cocoa? coffee?) Lighting a fire and cooking something over that is also likely to make the event more enjoyable.

* You need a garment for your legs that's suitable for sitting around in snow extended periods of time. Garments like these seem to have been hijacked by the snowboarding community in the English speaking world, so I can't find any word them that doesn't reference this dismal sport Therefore, I'll describe what I mean instead. They're essentially what winter jacket is for your upper body, except for your legs. You wear them on top of your indoor clothes, and they allow you to spend hours outside in the snow without freezing or getting wet (they typically include snow-guards you pull over the top of shoes).
I edit my posts a lot and sometimes the words wrong order words appear in sentences get messed up.

I used to always have the first couple songs the sort that were gentle at first but built up to something epic. That way you wake up nice and slow, and when the music kicks in you are ready to dance. In particular, I used The Shining by Badly Drawn Boy. However, I would also recommend either "Song for the already defeated" or "Be Joyful" by Rock Central Plaza. Just because.
