Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: TASTING

  • The topic for this week’s CFFC is Sense of Tasting.  This is all about things you can taste, be it sweet, sour, bitter, comforting, fulfilling, addictions, etc.  If you can drink or eat it, you can usually taste it. — Cee Neuner’s Fun Foto Challenge

These days, self has been searching for comfort food. But, first: NOSTALGIC MEMORIES of her last picnic at Cal Shakes, Orinda:

Second, comfort food during a pandemic: Maggi on Roasted Chicken is the best! And her favorite cookies from childhood, available at Pacific Market in South San Francisco:

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.

Quote of the Day: CALIBAN’S WAR, p. 319

Though Book # 2 of The Expanse nine-volume series (NINE!) started off slow, somewhere in the middle (yes, yes, who has the patience to wait 300 pages before the authors begin firing on all cylinders, but she loved the first book, and besides she already ordered the next two, she couldn’t just let it go) it began to be . . . exciting.

Something has happened to Jim Holden’s leg. Amos, the Big Man, the ‘enforcer’ of this rag-tag crew, has been hurt by an explosion.

“Gotta get up, big man,” Holden said, pushing himself to his feet. In the partial gravity of their spin, his leg felt heavy, hot, and stiff as a board. Without the drugs pouring through him, standing on it would have probably made him scream. Instead, he pulled Amos up, putting even more pressure on it.

I will pay for this later, he thought. But the amphetamines made later seem very far away.

“Naomi,” Holden said. “Can you control Amos’s suit from there?”

“Yes.”

“Shoot him full of speed.”

This is kind of — uh, sorry — addicting, actually. There’s even a huge Marine (of Samoan ancestry, therefore huge?) who reminds self a lot of Murderbot, the main character in Martha Wells’s excellent series, The Murderbot Diaries.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
