Funny Food Stories: Morels At Le Bec Fin

Candid Engineer and her commenters are telling funny food stories, so here’s mine:

One time I was eating dinner at Le Bec Fin in Philly, totally fucking obliterated (surprise, surprise!). The captain brings out my meat course and pours some morel sauce on it. As this is happening, chef George Perrier is standing on the circular stair up to the second floor with a huge-ass Napoleon sword and a bottle of champagne.

Just as he’s about to knock the top off, the smell of the morels hits me, and I involuntarily exclaim, “Yum! I fucking love morels!!!!”

The whole dining room turns to look at me, including Perrier, he smiles and then whacks the top of the bottle off with the sword and foam sprays and everyone claps. Afterwards he brings us a massive motherfucking bowl of morels in sauce and glasses of the champagne. That was fucking hilarious!!!! I was so hammered!!!

The Press As A Bulwark Of Democracy

There is an interesting discussion going on over at Neuron Culture concerning commentary posted at Huffington Post by a dude named Steven Waldman (no fucking clue who he is) concerning the relationship between blogging and “traditional journalism”:

The idea that the Huffington Post, or the explosion of interesting internet news or blogging sites, can replace journalistic institutions like the New York times or other newspapers or dinosaurs of the mainstream media truly misunderstands the web, newspapers, journalism and the serious threat posed to democracy if the news gathering institutions fail.

David Dobbs, journalist and blogger at Neuron Culture thinks “Waldman has this right”, because traditional newpapers possess “infrastructure that supports in-depth reporting, fact-checking, editing, and brainstorming, and with it a corresponding infrastructure of contacts and information flow”.

Comrade PhysioProf thinks this is a load of steaming fucking horsehit.

With a very few exceptions, the traditional news-gathering institutions already have failed. They no longer provide any but the most perfunctory opposition or criticism of government actions and assertions.

The most important opportunity the press had to keep the government honest in the last decade–the Iraq war propaganda assault–it failed miserably, and the evidence suggests that news-gathering agencies made an explicit decision not to “challenge the Leader in a Time of War”. The press is not doing any better of a job right now in covering the Middle East, acting essentially as stenographer for AIPAC far-right-wing Likud propaganda.

The vast majority of journalists are much more interested in sucking up to power and basking in reflected celebrity than they are in acting as the opposition to government propaganda they were envisioned by the Founders as constituting. If our current news-gathering agencies are supposed to be some kind of bulwark of democracy, we are seriously fucked.

JLK’s Totally Fucking Awesome Jambalaya

JLK from Pieces of Me has graciously provided this recipe for totally fucking awesome jambalaya for Comrade PhysioProf’s readers:

Disclaimer #1: This makes a SHITload of food. You will fill a 10×15 pyrex dish to the tippity top. But I made it for my dad for his birthday so he would get several meals out of it. You can freeze the leftovers or adjust the ingredient amounts as necessary.

Disclaimer #2: This is some spicy shit. You’ll taste a small bite and be like, “Oh, this isn’t so bad” and then within seconds, your mouth will start to feel the heat. Adjust cayenne pepper amount accordingly. If you want it hotter, season with hot pepper sauce before serving.

Disclaimer #3: Do not be fucking lazy or intimidated and cook the rice separately. That means NO Minute Rice! If you don’t cook it all together, it will not taste nearly as good.

Disclaimer #4: The ingredient list is daunting, I know. But a lot of this stuff you will already have, and if you don’t – what the hell kind of cook are you, anyway? You should really only have to buy shrimp and Cajun sausage.

And last bit of helpful info: This recipe was based on using uncooked chicken. If you have chicken that is already cooked, you can go ahead and skip the first step and the second pan.

Revere: Politicization Of The Centers For Disease Control

A great fear among many in the public health community was that Obama would not expeditiously replace Dr. Julie Gerberding as Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (aka, the CDC). It is a relief to say that she will be out in 9 days, although she isn’t going willingly and will wring every last second of power and salary out of it: literally. Her requested resignation is effective at noon on January 20 just as Obama becomes the 44th President of the United States:

CDC Director Julie Gerberding’s controversial tenure will end Jan. 20 — after Barack Obama is sworn in as president, employees of the Atlanta-based agency were informed in an email sent late Friday evening.

[snip]

“As part of the transition process, the Administration requested resignation letters from a number of senior-level officials, including Dr. Julie Gerberding. This week, the Administration accepted Dr. Gerberding’s resignation, effective January 20. As Dr. Gerberding noted in a November e-mail to CDC leadership, she has always expected that she would be leaving after the administration changes,” the written statement said.

Dr. Isis Joins The Partay!!1!

Dr. Isis is feeling a little itchy today and has a bit of the shakes. You see, ScienceBlogs is down and Dr. Isis has not only lost her outlet for all the crazy things in her head, but Saturday morning is prime blog commenting time. Damn it!

So, this morning Little Isis and I talked about how much I miss my precious ScienceBlogs. We recorded it for you here:

Video 1: Dr. and Little Isis discuss some of the blogs Dr. Isis misses. It should be evident from the shakiness of this video, the forlorn tone of her voice, and the fact that Dr. Isis mentions Greg Laden twice that Dr. Isis is dealing with the ScienceBlogs shutdown poorly at best.

I fear that there may be only one thing in the world (other than a trip to the museum with Little Isis, that can cheer Dr. Isis up:

Figure 1: Naughty Monkey’s new line is out. Whew! Moroccan Strut by Naughty Monkey. $74.94 at Zappos.com

The Intern From Area 51

Some of you may know me as the ScienceBlogs intern. Others of you may be saying, “Who the fuck is this chick?” Well, I’m only the adorably nerdy science girl of Seed by day. By night, I’m still an adorable, but I work at a grungy Internet café in Brooklyn and sometimes I have to hold it down when people are assholes (which is usually).
