it's a great life, if you don't weaken

In which the writers consider dinner....

[01:26] matociquala: Okay. Pat can actually rub words together.
[01:27] matociquala: Not just, you know, create a paragraph I can get through without wincing.
[01:27] matociquala: But build a rhetorical structure.
[01:29] matociquala: "Old Cob tucked away his bowl of stew with the predatory efficiency of a lifelong bachelor."
[01:29] matociquala: That's like a real sentence and everything.
[01:34] stillsostrange: but it's also stew
[01:34] stillsostrange: why's it gotta be stew?
[01:35] matociquala: It's stew in a pub, which is acceptable.
[01:35] matociquala: It's only stew on long trail rides that's unlikely.
[01:36] leahbobet: Squirrel stew.
[01:36] leahbobet: Someone should do that.
[01:36] matociquala: If it wasn't stew, it would just be pottage, which is stew with oats in it.
[01:36] stillsostrange: I strive to be stew free in my fantasies
[01:36] stillsostrange: Instead it's all curry, all the time. :P
[01:36] leahbobet: Actually, I was thinking about good trail food that's not stew?
[01:37] jmeadows: chips!
[01:37] matociquala: You know what curry is, Amanda?
[01:37] leahbobet: And now I need an excuse to write the fantasy where they freeze pierogies and carry them around.
[01:37] matociquala: (stew.)
