Isn't this supposed to be a D&D collecting forum?

I have eaten (lunch) in Jamie's restaurant

fifteenrestaurant.com

and it was quite good.

I think Ramsey is mean't to be the more serious cook - with some Michelin stars etc...

Loved the Naked Chef shows.  It was a cooking show about cooking food that real people might actually eat.  I don't recall a single episode that did not deal with a practical meal...as opposed to pastries and Italian nibblets that cost $15 each.

Also, there was that really wonderful pasta salad! :D

Hmmm, quite hungry now.

Here is what I m having for dinner - a recipe from red_bus's cheap eats and fridge clean-outs.

- cook up a big pile of short grain brown rice,
- stir in some leftover artichoke hearts in oil (the last out of the jar),
- mix in some chopped up baby tomatoes, broad beans and asparagus (from last night)
- top with a little parmesan and some leftover smoked salmon.

:D

My very first thought, too. If it turns out to be a human, we'll be wrong together, Al. :)

Just looks like a bot name to me, though ...

Quite an interesting combination there.  8O   I just had a plate of taco salad.  Seasoned ground beef, ranch style beans, red onion, tomatoes, cheddar cheese, and corn chips all mixed together with lettuce and some Catalina dressing.  Come to think of it...not much to do about tacos at all actually.  :wink:

Not that an animated DL movie wouldnt be cool....I would rather see them make a live-action movie instead.  I have been jonesing for another big-budget epic fantasy flick to come around ever since Return of the King.  The Chronicles of Narnia wasnt bad but just didnt quite do it for me.

If they ever do a live-action movie I just hope to God that they dont use any suggestions from these fan polls:

Official Dragonlance Movie Site | Dragonlance Movie Site Polls : Official DLMS Dream Cast Poll 1
Official Dragonlance Movie Site | Dragonlance Movie Site Polls : Official DLMS Dream Cast Poll 2

Danny DeVito as Tasslehoff???  8O

Call of Cthulhu fans:

In terms of solo adventures, I can remember "Alone Against the Wendigo" and "Alone Against the Dark" ... but wasn't there a third solo book? (I'm thinking Chaosium, not small-press or self-published). Or were there only two, and I'm imagining the third?

Thanks in advance.

There was an 'Alone on Halloween' which was published by Pagan Publishing and licensed by Chaosium.  Same format, same booklet size, probably a smaller print run.

Cool old school artwork with a big pumpkin on the front.

Hope helpful.
