Dicks. Housekeeping. Some assembly required.

Well, well…Christopher Lee has died, bless him, and closed the DeadPool™. Also — not DeadPool™ related — actor Ron Moody has fallen off the perch (dude who played Fagin in the film version of Oliver!).

And, yes, that thing in the picture is a delicious spotted dick. Let’s do some housekeeping.

This was Round 73 and win #2 for m. If you could send me your details again, m, I would appreciate it.

I owe Drew458 a dick (his second) for Round 68. I was holding it because I thought sure he was going to take #3 in short order with Bobbi Kristina Brown, but that poor soul is still in a coma, and it’s looking kinda permanent. So he’s in the queue.

According to my records, I also haven’t made dicks for Round 69 (homer with Ebola Man), Round 70 (armybrat with Mumbles Menino) and Round 72 (Ripley and BB King). No pressure (I hate giving out my contact details on the innernets and will refuse if I can do so gracefully, so don’t feel obliged). On the other hand, I do owe you dick.

There are also some older dick winners who never claimed their prize. You may step up at any time. Dick wins are forever.

That’s it then. Back here. Tomorrow. 6 sharp WBT. DeadPool Round 74!

Yes, yes, Yes. Christopher Lee is dead and departed, but are we smiling yet?


No. No, we are not. 🙁

And conveniently-timed, too. The fam must have known the dead pool starts only on Fridays and held the announcement until today.

RIP, Saruman!

That’s lemon sauce, right? In the picture? Lemon sauce and cake?

Jobst Brandt died. I hadn’t heard, but I’m saddened.

When watching the HOBBIT movies, I felt sorry for the dragon. The actor who played Radagast was one of the original Drs., and Christopher Lee was most famous as Dracula, so Smaug was up against Gandalf, Dr. Who, Dracula, and one of the dwarves was Bofors.

As in Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk?
Is it common to use condensed milk as a dessert topping?
Do you heat it?
I thought it was lemon curd too.

Well, it’s possible it’s lemon curd or custard, but they do use canned milk as a dessert topping. Especially for spotted dick. Yes, something like Eagle brand.

I have a bit of the warm fuzzies for canned milk. When I was a kid, we were allowed to have coffee with the grownups when we were on vacation, but it was almost all milk with a tiny bit of coffee. Condensed milk, always.

Fair warning: You put up Chelsea Clinton icons and I kill the blog with fire.
