Tried a bag of dried Ball dill pickle mix, even though it does not seem to have a whole lot of dill in it.  I was going to throw some of my own in, but that was vetoed by the lovely and gracious Rogue, who has this crazy idea that we ought to taste the original recipe before modifying it.  She gets her way. This time.


  1. what is this fetish women have for reading directions?

    i completely don't get that.

  2. Asking directions, too. WTH?

  3. Me? I never ask directions. That's my husband's job. I just drive and logic it out. I don't know what's the matter with him wanting to stop and ask people for directions. He reads directions before using too.

    you know the correct answer to your wife's demand that you stop and ask directions, right?

    "You're only lost if you care. And I don't care."

    not following the map ( ie - EXPLORING ) is actually *a survival trait*. having alternate routes to a place is how you avoid being bottlenecked by a flood / fire / wolf pack, etc.

    oh, come on, give it up. we know that both of you are transitioning.

    "mom", sheeyeah, right.

  5. Oddly, I am on Rogue's side on this one. Now, mind you, I consider my impulse in this regard to be of the OCD variety, and it aggravates me when I am forced into it myself. But... it is what it is.

    Eww... not sure anyone made it out of that looking good!

  6. Okay, I read directions. And, mostly, I follow them. However, I have a tendency to read them only well enough that I'm sure I know what they say then I cast them aside and....well, most of my cooking turns out edible.

    And I really AM the one hiding under a blanket in the car while he gets out and asks directions because he wants to. No kidding. Though I did call my cousin's church and ask how to get to the funeral home because I was fairly certain that I was going the wrong way. Mostly I don't like talking to people I don't know.
