Toast!
Toast!
Before leaving for our various homes for Thanksgiving, we bought some beer (Bear Republic Racer 5 IPA and Goose Island Matilda) and gathered around for an office toast! Tis the season!

Ed also ran into his buddy Alice Waters, who was spending a few days eating around New York. Bear hugs were exchanged before the inquisition started: "So, Ed, where should I eat?"

Hambone was sick at home (aka Chez Kenji) for most of the week, but Yuba tried to keep him company. Or maybe she just wanted the bed to herself.

We receive a lot of packages at the office, but they're not usually as tasty as Diana Horst's (no longer) Secret Dipping Sauce. She mailed us a few jars to enjoy. Thanks, dhorst!
YouTube Break
YouTube Break
We could watch the same YouTube video from our respective desks, but it's more fun gathering around Max's desk and watching at the same time. The source of our procrastination: Vi Hart's instructions for making a hexaflexagon with a tortilla (a.k.a. a hexagflexamexagon).

Kenji researched wonton soup by tasting six kinds of wonton soup side by side. Results coming soon!
