[thx] HAM

Originally uploaded by Andy Cadaver.

I was just emailing with Sarah Carey, and she correctly noted that my weblog has been tending towards the techie-incomprehensible recently. A brief look at the front page confirms this.

So here’s a remedy: a photo of the delicious ham which the lovely C cooked up for Thanksgiving, last Thursday. Just look at that, mmmmm!

When I get back to Ireland, I will be bringing Thanksgiving with me; a holiday based around eating cooked fowl, with no religious baggage whatsoever? I’m so there.

    Mmmm. But hang on, that appears to be meat your partner is preparing. Or is it that delicious porky-fish I’ve heard so much about.

    Dave —

    I clicked. you totally did swipe the design, too! but then I hacked it from one of the downloadable themes at the WordPress theme gallery, so hey.

    Luke —

    believe me, any lingering vestiges of vegetarianism are long gone from C by now. I think only steak tartare might still be a bridge too far — anything else goes. great!

    ps: meat!

    “Making digital files not copyable is like making water not wet. You can’t do it.”

    Except when you can. It’s called ice, is water which has undergone a phase transition and is only wet when it melts.

    What’s this about mid-winter feasting festivals with no religious baggage whatsoever? Impossible, can never happen – thanksgiving to a deity has always been the story. So give up, enjoy the booze and food and warm feelings.

    AFAIK, thanksgiving is a religious festival. The CoI church assoiated with my primary school had a thanksgiving festival at a time around when harvests would traditionally have been taken. I’ve always thoguht that the focus on thanksgiving in the US is probably some product of early protestant settlers being really thankful that they hadn’t starved to death this year, but I may be mistaken.

    Ham? HAM?! You had HAM for Thanksgiving?!?!?!?! You’re coming to our place next year for it. With a proper turkey. From Lidl. Damn fine turkey.

    Elana — don’t worry! We had a Turkey as well. It just wasn’t as photogenic as the ham was ;)
