I used to be a big Red Dwarf fan. I still enjoy watching it, but I’m not insane like I used to be. (I changed, moved obsessions elsewhere.) I was really very surprised in a recent Economist by seeing a picture of the character Arnold J. Rimmer used to illustrate a story about holograms. Seemed a weird choice, but the Economist does sometimes use pictures that don’t always make a whole lot of sense.
I’m out of salt. Isn’t that weird? Last night, I was making chicken soup, and I kept having to improvise with Old Bay, Tabasco, and chili powder. I was thinking, “Oh, thank heavens I brined this chicken, or else it’d be über bland.”
