I never could get past the smell of sardines or ANY fish. I leave the house when mama bear does her thing.
Strange, I know, but the only "fish" I will eat is fried, breaded shrimp.

Off to South Cak-o-lacky for a week tomorrow; a work thang.

Don't know what to say about that @JohnJ

 

that's why I get up between 3 and 4AM... Withdrawal never figures in... I'm ahead of that. 

 

Normality returns to the house. Wife is back to work after the holiday break. She was not ready to get up at 6AM. Been sleeping until 8 or 9.  Asked if she was gonna get mad for me stirring her "early"... She didn't get angry... but she didn't get up either. She did not seem too happy when I rousted her at 6:30, to be ready to go at 7.

 

You've been hearing me wondering about the drivers in my audio card in this laptop.... Plugged into the tv as a source... dtv has "music choice" as their music channels...

Way mo' bettah.

Now, is spotify that much junk or is it the computer?

I'm not that way, generally.

Wife fixed some fish that were the exception. We were at an Asian grocery and she found some dried anchovies. She deep fried them. Crispy...

told her that it would be OK for her to do them again, as long as she prepared them in someone else's house.... or at least, not in ours.

The house stank for a week.

 

They were OK eating. Like fish chips... but the smell of cooking them ....please to do that elsewhere!!!!!

Raw tuna or salmon doesn't smell and tastes sublime.  Bring on the sashimi!

Honestly, I think you need to go a little heavy on S&P when you are doing catfish. When I mix for 'gill or ... about anything else, I go light... Sardines will take seasonings. You just gut and gill them...

When I go to Philadelphia (China Town) there's a Indonesian restaurant that has a whole deep fried cat fish... 
it's off the chart delicious.

Two types of hot sauce...They call it chili'.....

The hot one is served in a stone bowl, spoon it out and put it on what ever you. It's served with the cat fish, I like to mix it with my rice..... It's quite quite hot. 

The other hot chili' is severed in a little plastic container....a few spoon fulls. 

This is the one that takes no prisoners.....Even my Indonesian bud can't hang with it...but his wife eats it down with no problems..

A few years back we were going to Philly 4/5 times a month so I became accustom to these chilis' and really got a liking for them.... but the problem for me is the next day.... It usually starts in the wee hours of the morning..... The term I use is liquid fire🔥 

The Boss asks me why do I do this to myself......it's just sooo good

Actually we're going to China Town for the Chinese New Year.... We haven't been in a year so I'll have to take it easy on the chili'

My birthday is rolling up.I don't think my wife would get me speakers. I didn't get lucky and marry a gal like  @dtel's wife.

Honey ... at least I didn't spend the money in a gentlemen's club.

She was not always like that, at one time she would want to know why I wanted new speakers when the ones I had still worked. I would read her funny post from here and eventually she learned some of the characters names here, after a couple of years she started reading and signed up on here on her own, it was quite the shock to see her posting here the first time. The more she read the more she got it eventually picked the speaker she wanted.

Can't really say that, did spend some money there a few times, but she was with me. :huh: We were out in the quarter and just decided to go in one. :lol: It was a really nice one, the only strip club traded on the NY Stock Exchange, Rick's  Cabaret.

I thought the only difference was the rice mostly ?

 

I like almost all of it, did not like the eel or octopus, but love the rest, including Ceviche

Octi in the Antipasto is great, liked the slightly crunchy shellfish flavor.

Not as excellent as the real Tempura Soft Shell Crab at a real Chinese restaurant!

mornin' all

 figured out the problem in my system.... This hissing and sputtering problem is gonna require a trip to the repair shop. I have a problem in the HK630.  There's a shop in Tucson

 

I'm not without... but nowhere as nice sounding... RCA receiver

 

Now I need to get well enough to get it up there. Overdid it yesterday and kicked my own butt.  Told ya I was feeling well enough to hurt myself ... and that, I did. Relapse.

 

Have things that NEED to get done, too. Time sensitive crap... Like, renew my drivers license. Haven't done that in 20 years. And AZ is trying to comply with the federal ID standards.  Gathering documents ....almost as bad as getting a passport. No idea where my social security card got off to.

Dang, Carl!!!

 

I won't tell y'all what happened last year. Fortunately, I wasn't the center of attention, except for getting sick. I'm starting this year in a similar fashion.

In some places it can be much worse than getting a passport, I got a passport but I no longer have a driver's license, gave up trying after about 10+ tries going into the office. Been about 20 years without one, tired of trying, I had a stack of paperwork last time and they wanted to know where was my licensed driver that was supposed to be with me, I gave up. On the second to last trip they asked if I was married, I said yes they said well you need your marriage certificate, why does that matter ? On the third of fourth trip they were closed , it was deer season, good enough reason here I guess. :o

 

In the last 20 years I did have to drive a few times, I did get stopped once, all I got was an expired driver's license ticket, much easier to deal with. The policeman asked for my license which I do not carry but told him my SS number and old license number and he put it in his computer then gave me the ticket. I told him how hard it was to get a license here and he laughed and said he knew it was bad but the police get a little better treatment, I told him I gave up and he kind of understood. 2 people in the office and it's very slow and if one is out no road test, or if there is rain within 100 miles it seems, wet roads they say.

 

The wife like to drive so I let her since I can look around or sleep as a passenger.
