plonq: (OK...)
I cut up some dry salami and applewood-smoked cheddar into small cubes last night and put them together in a container for today's lunch.

Question: what do you get when you pack salami and applewood-smoked cheddar together in the same container and leave them in the fridge overnight?

Answer: Salami, and salami-flavoured cheddar (with hints of applewood).

As I was cutting up some more tonight for tomorrow's lunch, I was pondering on whether to pack the cheese separately when I remembered that we bought some Trappist cheese on the weekend.

It would take a lot to overpower the smell and flavour of this cheese. In a battle of cheese and dry salami, I don't know which one would win.

But I guess I'll find out tomorrow.

On an unrelated note, they had a local news story on CBC radio this morning, where they kept referring to the LGBTTQ community. I thought it was a mistake the first time, but they repeated it a couple more times. I finally had to get [personal profile] atara to explain it to me because she is more in tune with the Tumbler culture. It turns out that the second T is two-spirited - which is not the same as B, or the first T. Wait, so is it kind of related to being gender-fluid? Apparently not. I guess it won't be long before it's the LGGBTTQ community.

I like cheese. I like all manner of cheese: hard, soft, sharp, mild, bland, stinky -- it would be trite, and untrue to say that I have never met a cheese that I did not like, but I have definitely liked the majority of cheeses that have passed my way.

Recently [ profile] atara purchased some cheese from a co-worker who was organizing a group purchase. It was a brand with which I was unfamiliar, but we decided to buck up for some smoked Gouda, aged white Cheddar, some curds and a garlic-chive Havarti. All four were very good, and the experience imbued me with a new found brand awareness. When we were out shopping on the weekend, we picked up some more of the smoked Gouda, and another one that caught my eye:

The truffle cheese is amazing. To the best of my knowledge, this is the first time in my life that I've had truffle, and I have decided that the experience is worth repeating. =9 I also learned something today that I'd likely already have known if I bothered to read product labels; this cheese is made locally - well, as local as one would consider a village about 30 minutes drive from here.

On another note, I don't know what's up with the plumbing in our washroom, but whatever it is, it can't end well. In the last couple of days the pipes have begun rumbling when one of the urinals flushes, and it has been getting progressively louder. Today the whole room shakes, and it sounds like Beelzebub himself is living in the walls. O.o

Some scallywag absconded with my goat cheese. =(

I am experiencing a larger than normal number of distractions at work today, so I may ramble a bit more than usual in this post.  If I get time later I'm going to lift a meme from [ profile] funos.

It is a messy, muddy, slushy morning in this prairie town.  It doesn't look like it's going to improve much either; they're calling for snow or freezing sleet today, and snow & flurries right through the weekend.  While I'm enjoying the balmy temperatures (+1 today), the driving conditions should improve by Sunday when it dips into -20 range.  It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas - which is a good thing, since Christmas is less than two weeks away.

[Mental note to self: begin preliminary Christmas shopping.]

We did a run through Scarlet Monastery on the weekend and [ profile] atara took a group photo at the end.  (I'm the one located bottom-right in the picture.)

[ profile] atara pointed something out awhile back in the game, and I have since encountered it myself; a set of identical robes looks different when worn by a male character or a female character.  The other day I picked up some robes for my priestess, which are identical to some robes that I found for my warlock on another server.  On him they were traditional wizardly robes (without the prerequisite stars and moons, mind you), but when I put them on my priestess, those selfsame dowdy, floor-length robes turned into a halter top.

Welcome to the fantasy world of chain mail bikinis.

[Another mental note to self: begin work on this year's Plonqmas story.]
