Missing Pablo Casals' name on a list is hardly a mark of imbecility.
Pensive and more than a little dubious of his client's character.

6. Collecting Olympic field hockey memorabilia.
Comment on #425 Did you get to eat in the back at both/either? ( I was in Vegas a couple of years ago and saw Joel Robuchon and Eric Ripert in a restaurant. I got crazy fangirl about Ripert - he is amazing in person. Robuchon is very ordinary-looking, and seemed nice. They were in a back room with a bunch of French business-types and both of them passed by our table a few times. We left at the same time as they did, and I still kick myself for not saying anything to either one. )
now-business at hand:
Scrimshaw is pretty, but you have to make certain it's old or humanely done and don't mix in the bone vs tooth, etc…
I'd do the traveling and fountains, it sounds like fun. Do they drop three coins in the fountain?
Howard Hughes' women. Pick one.

Hung over today???
#427: No, ate in the main dining room at each place, on back-to-back nights. Didn't recognize anyone who could be the chef in the open-kitchen setup at Atelier, while Picasso appeared to be just one main dining room with no open kitchen.
#433: Nay, despite hitting up at least half a dozen bars (lost count) and some in New Orleans last night.
Which would you choose as your main course at Picasso?
Roasted Maine Lobster (extra surcharge)
Sauteed Filet of New Zealand Tai Snapper
Prime Filet Mignon
Braised Idaho Wagyu Short Rib
Roasted Tournedo Loin of Colorado Lamb
Sound like you're lucky to not be hung over lol
I'd have to pick the Maine Lobster ... love Lobster and don't get it very often around where I live so it would be worth the extra surcharge
Are you happy (secretly or otherwise) that the holidays are over and you're getting back into routine?
I have a repulsive story about TV Dinners. Well not really a story, more like choppy dialogue. Anyway, here it is:
So there, masticate on THAT for a while!Dinner time, 7:35 p.m. Oakland, California. Some year between Lilehammer and Nagano.......
Young Sioux: Hey Ma the chocolate pudding in my Hungry Man's Dinner tastes funny...
Ma Sioux: That's a brownie, sweetheart.

Salisbury Steak or Beer Battered Chicken Strips?
Is it a bad thing that I really enjoyed watching this performance a very short while ago?
- Not at all.
- Well, kinda, though I also admire the smooth, powerful jumps of Zhanna Gromova's pupils.
- Go back to the late 90s where you belong, swine. Enjoy your Batman and Robin, Avengers remake, lariat-necklaces, New Economy burbling, and all the Snapple you can drink.
- purple It's kinda cool that siouxling's microwaved brownie was a pudding in both the British and Jello senses of the word.

With respect to the first of those, I was thinking of those necklaces which look like they're tied in the front rather than fastened by a clasp, with some of the chain and perhaps a pendant dangling from the knot or else a decorative hoop. You know perfectly well what brownies are. Snapple is a brand of glass-bottled sugar water ("made from the best stuff on earth") and was wildly popular in the US () during the 1990s.What are lariat, brownie, and Snapple? They sound like the kind of words f_d keeps trying to put down in Scrabble.
Like escargot, only better.Oh dear. I mean, I'm not fastidious - how could I be when on my back door there's a sign saying "Chez R**** - slugs especially welcome"? And if you get up early you can put them in the frying pan and forget about your Weetabix. Mmmmm, luscious. But the above
Lambs in the back garden, their parents and/or shepherds placing orders for slugcargot.
So, who's looking forward to this orbital year's perihelion?
Absolutely no one.
