Today was pretty much an Alton day. I've introduced Bunny to the wonders of Alton Brown and his show Good Eats. We made his very basic bread (which ended up a bit dense—I think due to not finding the right type of yeast) which ended up very good (despite the wrong type of yeast) and his hamburger recipe which was, as Bunny put it, “the best hamburger I've ever tasted” (and it's a very simple recipe).
We also watched his new show Feasting on Asphalt, which is a very interesting look at American restaurants off the main Interstate highway (and by god I want the soundtrack to that show—the main theme has earwormed its way into my brain in in this case, that's not a bad thing). Just watching Alton's reaction of pickeled pigs feet or a brain sandwich is just priceless (“Amazing thing about [the pickeled pigs feet]—I'm no longer hungry!”).

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
