Festival of Meats

JoDee and I went to JoDee’s dad’s place for what we’ve termed “the festival of meats”. JoDee’s brother grilled up a tasty buffet of hot dogs, hamburgers, and some mighty-fine chicken, which was absolutely cooked to perfection on all counts. Then I was pressed into service to help hook up JoDee’s brother’s computer to the internet with the router he bought (a WRT54G2). The only hard part was trying to snake the cables through the floor to reach the router, which was to be located in the basement (don’t ask. It makes sense). Unfortunately the original idea I had of putting the router in a more central location was quickly vetoed in favor of putting it in a more convenient location, so we went to Best Buy to pick up 50ft of ethernet cable to make the whole thing work. And work it did. Pretty easy set-up overall.

(Oh, and just so you know: there are two Ubuntu machines there, and one Windows 98 machine. The Windows Machine isn’t even allowed on the Internet anymore. :) )

(Update: I can’t believe I forgot this, but JoDee made some incredibly awesome pork and beans that we brought along. It was incredibly yummy. I attribute forgetting this important detail to lack of sleep).

    coolness! I’m glad that it worked for you! It’s actually my mom’s recipe for p&b–but when J mentioned the words “i need to find out how long to soak the beans for “, i was like, ‘no–here’s how you make them’–glad that it all worked out!

    My Uncle had a recipe for a jam sandwich. Something like this: take two pieces of bread, and jam some meat in there.
