In which I almost passed out from rage

because of Top Chef Texas. (Day late, but I had to feed a family yesterday, cut me some slack.) Chili cook-off. Wait, let me fix it: "chili" cook-off.

BRISKET IS NOT THE CUT OF MEAT FOR CHILI. What on earth. The whole family spent yesterday scratching our heads about that. (Well, not my mother in law, because she's from Illinois and makes carrot dimes and tries to eat ribs with a knife and fork.) We've made chili from chuck, from tenderloin (cow, boar, buffalo, and deer) and a whole armadillo (I was sad, though, because armadillos! They're a state animal! *sad face* And cute. But the vatos at the hunting lease swore by it, and it was muy delicioso.)

The recap went up this morning, and I kinda sorta go off. I'M SORRY, BUT THIS IS THE FOOD OF MY PEOPLE.

Yesterday was a success, no one was snotty or rude, I didn't wash any dishes, and everyone enjoyed the food. My brother and law and his wife stayed the night with us and we're going to relax all day and visit, and it's a fine, fine day.

Hope everyone had a good holiday/Thursday and that today you're not doing anything taxing like battling weirdos with pepper spray in the Wal-marts. Funny thing: pepper spray is REALLY expensive. So good job on getting deals by spending crazy money on a weapon? IDIOT.

I saved a wee drowning mouse in the pool this morning, and because of that, I get to take a life, right? That's how that works, save a life, take a life? Beware, hobo clowns! I'm on the prowl.

Now, see, i don't actually like chili at *all*, but that's because of the horrible, horrible, horrible legumes. But watching TC, i see that 'real' chili doesn't *have* legumes!

Which is awesome. So maybe i *do* like chili!
Except i'm a total wimp and don't actually like 'hot' things, so....

Padme looked very *pretty* on the horse, but she didn't seem terribly comfortable on it, heh. And i liked how they were all 'we're assholes' at the judges table. Yes, yes you were.
*snerk*

Mouse! I'm glad you saved it. Poor thing.

REAL CHILI DOES NOT HAVE BEANS.

Meat + flavor * hours = TEXAS CHILI.

I cannot believe no one is as affronted about the LIE about Fritos as I was. I MEAN THEY ARE FROM SAN ANTONIO WHERE THEY WERE SITTING.

Heeeee!
I had to read your review to get the Fritos thing - i don't even remember anyone talking about where Fritos are from! *Why* would they talk about where they're from? Weird.

I hate beans, so much. Dear gods. Horrible little pellets of *death*.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
