    Tomorrow is the annual White Castle eating contest at my office. My record is 21 cheese slyders. The office record is 22. I'm hoping to switch the competition from being overall volume to being the most within two minutes or something.

    - I am attempting my first "tur-duck-en" Tomorrow... wish me luck! Is it wrong that I am more nervous doing that then speaking in front of hundreds of affiliates about clinical trends? wtf brain, why don't you make sense. I need a drink now just looking at the kitchen counter all splayed out.

    Are you buying a prepared turducken, or are you boning the duck and chicken yourself to make it?

    That sounds rather risqué.

    Doing my first turkey this year. Parents are visiting from out of state. So much cleaning, and sometime real damn soon, I gotta get a job. Got everything I need till the end of the year, at least, but Christmas is gonna be tight on just my fiance's income. Lots on my mind, good thing Oregon has cheap, good weed.

    Is it a speed or quantity contest?

    - I had to google local farms and luckily hit a place in New England that will dress all three for me thankfully... yeah the prepared ones I've seen look all dwarfed and abnormal ... so gonna go for it all natural. I'm even gonna render some duck fat from the duck and baste it with it during the cooking.

    - The problem is the cook temp control without destroying the turkey on the outside... so I'm considering a huge cooking bag for the first hour then open it up to crisp that sob.

    I am lurking around the PoxNora and Forums again lately and thinking about saving all the card art and lore stuff as I have always been inspired by it to write some sort of a story or two.

    But instead of that I have been busy at work in this Service Desk, and my fellow co-workers who are a bit higher up than me are all sick so as being the one who has worked the longest I have to fill in with them and this is absolute chaos before Black Friday. And I just wish I could go home and play some Spyro.

    Depends on what my challengers want to do. My record is 21 total, but I stopped because the 2nd highest was at 15 and gave up. As for speed, I've eaten 15 in 3 minutes.

    I have to add information to a presentation about the ecological key factors in our project area and also something about helofytefilters.

    so I'm quite busy.

    but we're doing a boardgame evening 5th of december, some small gifts from sinterklaas, chocolate letters probably.

    Fried a turkey but also decided to bake a Bacon-Wrapped Herb-Stuffed Turkey Breast this year. It was fantastic.

    That bacon wrap looks absolutely delish.
