    I get arguments every single day, but most just deal with it and don’t act shitty about it. This was just one of those aggro assholes. And now he gets to find another place for his test.

    I went to put up the Christmas lights on our house today and every single string was dead. They were all working when they got put away in January. WTF. Checked them all on different outlets too.

    And if it does, there's usually sand stuck to it.

    Why is the lid to the caper jar so narrow? How do I get capers out without pouring out the brine?

    Fork--if necessary use an oyster fork, or whatever they call the little fork I eat oysters with.

    Oyster forks: high brow as fuck.

    It annoys me that we don't have any such forks at the house cause Ms Boissal is so vegetarian the mere thought of oysters makes her mad.
    I have to use my espresso spoons to fish out the capers without draining the juices. Like some kind of peasant.

    Mrs. Boissal must bring a lot to the table then, if you're willing to overlook the militant vegetarian thing.

Quick rinse and all good.

    the barrage of "Colorado Gives" emails is annoying AF. Luckily they will stop soon.

    Oyster forks are high brow? What about espresso spoons?
    I admit though that the manly way to eat an oyster is to slurp it.

    She's actually very low key about it, she doesn't care what I eat as long as I don't use the same knife to chop her veggies after cutting raw meat. Which may have happened early in our relationship and resulted in a major dressing down...
    She will occasionally cook meat for group dinners, especially camping. She won't touch it though, something I find really weird considering she spends hours cutting through and digging around people's innards for work. Apparently slicing into human flesh is perfectly fine but cutting a steak in half is over the top. There are a few things that really get her riled up though, so far we've identified oysters (probably cause they're alive and fairly gross looking), raw meat (the very concept of tartare steak makes her queasy), foie gras (cause force feeding isn't great), and all manners of pâtés which she claim look like cat food. Surprisingly she doesn't mind when I shove huge pieces of sashimi down my gullet. She's probably stab me if she saw me eat live octopus (which I doubt I could handle anyway).

    I feel bad for her when we're in France, so many rad meat-based stuff to try that she's missing out on. More for me I guess, but it annoys me that I can't share the experience, food is such a big part of the identity over there.

    My great grandma, who was very high brow, had about 7 types of forks in her drawers. You'd get smacked if you reached for the dinner fork when eating the salad. I may have PTSD over silverware variety and will only suffer 2 types of forks and spoons: big ones and little ones (little ones for espresso, capers, etc... )

    Some caper manufacturers should be ashamed of themselves. Others have figured it out:

    Can't you just dump your jar of capers into a dedicated small tupperware when you get home from the store, or is that too rational?

    I'd wager a 1/8 teaspoon would do the job.

    You could even drill some holes in it for diy points.

    Maybe weld on a longer handle while you're at it.

    I was at the post office today mailing a Gear Swap item to Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, Canada

    I fill out the Customs Declaration form while I’m waiting in line and hand it and my item to the guy at the desk

    he says “it’s overseas shipping day”

    he’s completely baffled when I try to explain to him that Canada is not actually “overseas”

    he doesn’t seem to understand that Canada is on the same continent as the US, like Mexico - then he tells me that Mexico is in South America and Canada is in North America and the US is in America

    I almost started crying
