Why there's no counter or cupboard space in the pantry either [Sep. 23rd, 2012|09:03 pm]
[Tags|]

Bold the ones you have and use at least once a year, italicize the ones you have and don't use, strike through the ones you have had but got rid of.

I wonder how many pasta machines, breadmakers, juicers, blenders, deep fat fryers, egg boilers, melon ballers, sandwich makers, pastry brushes, cheese knives, electric woks, miniature salad spinners, griddle pans, jam funnels, meat thermometers, filleting knives, egg poachers, cake stands, garlic crushers, margarita glasses, tea strainers, bamboo steamers, pizza stones, coffee grinders, milk frothers, piping bags, banana stands, fluted pastry wheels, tagine dishes, conical strainers, rice cookers, steam cookers, pressure cookers, slow cookers, spaetzle makers, cookie presses, gravy strainers, double boilers (bains marie), sukiyaki stoves, ice cream makers, and fondue sets* languish dustily at the back of the nation's cupboards.

plea for garb [Jun. 18th, 2012|08:19 pm]
[Tags|, , ]

Any extra-large SCA guys in or near Seattle willing to lend an outfit to meowse for a musical performance this weekend? It would be a lifesaver, as he has no garb and no time to put any together. We would be happy to pick up anywhere in the area.

Tattoo reviews? [May. 30th, 2011|11:56 am]
[Tags|, , ]

Those of you with tattoos or in related businesses:

What tattoo shop(s) and/or artist(s) in Seattle would you most recommend?

I'm looking for:
* Very responsible sanitary procedures
* Ability to faithfully reproduce a client-provided image

Ideally, the artist would also be a native Japanese speaker, since the image in question is kanji, but this is not necessary as long as they can copy from a model well.

I see that Slave to the Needle has won a ridiculous number of awards, and has details of their safety procedures on their website. Any comments on them in particular?
