The IT Crowd is so awesomely funny. Tonight’s episode is so funny we’re watching it again. Completely hilarious. LOLed for about half the show.

You must watch this now. Run don’t walk.

  1. Get Miro (used to be called Democracy) – this is an Internet TV player
  2. Copy this URL:
  3. Open Miro, then click Channels > Add Channel. Paste in the subscription URL.
  4. The latest episode (season 2, episode 5) should begin downloading.
  5. Watch episode and ZOMG LOL.
  6. Enjoy the earlier season’s episodes and all new ones which will automatically download to your computer.

One of the funniest lines from this episode said by Moss:

Ah, well, prepare to put mustard on those words, for you will soon be consuming them, along with this slice of humble pie, that comes direct from the oven, of shame, set at gas mark egg on your face.

So freaking funny.


Sourdough Starter: Day 0 Sep 18 2007

Day 0 of sourdough starter madness

After all the wonderful bread that Kristin’s been making, I thought I’d look into trying to make my own sourdough. I’m pretty sure this way lies madness. But I’m giving it a shot. After Googling for info on making sourdough (the ultimate DIY bread) I just mixed together 1 cup water with 1 cup flour in a bowl, and we’ll see where we go from here.

This looks like a good recipe for both starter and Berkley sourdough bread:

Benton Sheet Metal did a great job with our kitchen range hood metalwork – Probably the best Sheet Metal Fabricators in St. Louis Sep 14 2007

Benton Sheet Metal - Metal Fabricators in St. Louis, MO

When we came up with the final design for our kitchen range hood, we did a fair amount of research into finding someone in St. Louis who could build what we had designed. Eric called lots of people, and kept on getting recommendations to talk with Ron over at Benton Sheet Metal. Eric got in touch with him, and explained the job. Once we delivered final drawings, work got underway.

Our copper pipes kitchen range hood done and delivered!

The final product came out so excellent. The craftsmanship is outstanding. I would recommend using Benton Sheet Metal for any sheet metal fabrication work you ever need to have done. They do work for people all over the country.

Serendipity Ice Cream is Exquisite. Sep 10 2007

Serendipity Ice Cream is Exquisite

If you’ve forgotten what truly amazing ice cream tastes like, you should try some Serendipity ice cream. It’s made right here in St. Louis, and it is just exquisite. We’ve been eating the Gooey Butter Cake ice cream and the Gold Coast (double chocolate) flavors.

I am not kidding when I say that we have been serving it in our shallow bowls. So we can literally lick them out once we’re done. It is that good.

We buy ours from Local Harvest which is a long walk (or easy bicycle ride) from our house.

If you have the opportunity I completely recommend this delicacy.
