1. Today is Dan’s 30th birthday! He wants to celebrate it by smoking a brisket and making red wine sausage.
3. Whenever I went out in the cold as a kid my grandma would warn me about catching “the peu-monies.”
4. I love this.
5. On tipping.
7. How do you like your oysters? I like mine just barely cracked open and warm, but still very wet and juicy (with hot sauce and horseradish, of course).
8. Terrorism works.
9. My sister gave me some BB cream for Christmas, and since I’d never heard of it (I live under a rock, apparently) I’m fascinated. Do you use it? What’s your favorite brand?
10. As a life-long fan of Carteret County and a lover of David Sedaris, I hope he continues to chronicle his Emerald Isle adventures.
