This is what I imagine my minions would look like:


Apparently Peru beat me to it.


But only in Peacekeeper Red.

I couple of weeks ago I was heading back to BART along side a coworker and we ran into a woman with an extremely cute and happy Golden Retriever puppy. I keep thinking about it and it occurred to me that I can actually own a dog now, if I wanted. While this is not something that will happen in the near future, I am seriously considering it. I'm still working out in my head if I'm willing to make the commitment, particularly since I could be called off at a moment's notice for search & rescue, but also I like the freedom to just get up and go someplace without the need to come home. So I'm going ponder some more. But if it happens, the two breeds I am considering are Labrador and Golden Retrievers.

In the meantime here's a very important video:

NYTimes.com published an interesting article about a No-Knead Bread recipe a while back. It was something I meant to try but never got around to. Well Cook's Illustrated got ahold of the recipe and effectively said "interesting (*cough* amateurs), but we think there's room for improvement". Their video podcast pushed me over the edge and I made their recipe the weekend before last and it was amazing and very well received. Easy too. I *highly* recommend that the culinarily inclined/foodies among you to give it a try.

I'm happy to say that as of my last tests all my results were in the optimal range. Unfortunately the article seems to indicate that we still don't have a full understanding of the cholesterol equation. Either way, I'll continue to avoid high fructose corn syrup and partially hydrogenated-anything.

Reading mind-numbingly silly reports that are incapable of separating correlation from causation:

Books that make you dumb



On the plus side, I did find a few more candidates for my in stack.


Update: As slothman pointed out, the author's site does now mention this.

Take Teddy Bear. Removing stuffing. Invert. Re-stuff. Re-sew.

And I thought evil clowns were creepy.

Kittens 'adopted' by pet rabbit


I wonder what will happen when she teaches them how to hunt? Or worse, she'll teach them to gnaw through your couch instead of claw at it.
