Freshly Cooked Salad

So, Margaret came over last night for a Firefly marathon and "health drink" drinking game. (One of the little known side effects of prolonged exposure to Korea is that you start saying things like "It's good for your well-being" or "increases stamina" and then you talk about the state of your condition. Our "health drinks" were actually pomegranate juice mixed with Cherry Coke and raspberry vodka, but the label of the pomegranate juice said it contained powerful antioxidants, so we're pretty sure it's good for our well-being.)

Our rules were:
  • Take a sip every time Wash flips the three switches on the console.
  • Take a sip every time Zoe calls Mal Sir or Captain.
  • Take a sip every time Book hits at his shady past.
  • Take a sip every time Inara is called by something other than her name.
  • Take a sip every time River knows something or does something she should know or be able to do.
  • Take a sip every time Jayne overtly caresses a weapon.
  • Take a sip every time Mal says something self depreciating.
  • Take a sip every time anyone says shiny, gorram or rutting.
  • Make a toast for especially awesome lines not otherwise covered.
  • Finish your drink when Serenity lights up like a firefly or someone mentions the compression coil.
In the first fifteen minutes of the pilot, Wash flipped the switches, there were various Sirs and Shinys and Gorrams, we had to toast for the "too pretty to die" line AND Wash playing with his dinosaurs and we finished our drink twice. It all went downhill from there, and by the time the second episode started, I was not longer coordinated enough to properly make finger hearts at the screen.

We made a Caesar salad for dinner, but since my kitchen has limited counter space and I don't own a salad bowl, I had to make the salad in my biggest pot, sitting on the stove. Margaret and I made cracks about cooking salad for the rest of the evening.

Nothing like a freshly cooking salad to whet the appetite.
