[09:54:28] <Apsup> Morning Bronz.
[09:56:43] <Bronzdragon> Hello Apsup.
[13:28:41] -!- Cybylt [Cybylt!Cybylt@hide-84D66C61.sd.sd.cox.net] has joined #geeknights
[13:29:33] <Bronzdragon> Cybylt.
[13:29:50] <Cybylt> Bronzdragon.
[13:29:58] <Bronzdragon> Cybylt.
[13:30:10] <Cybylt> Bronzdragon.
[13:30:28] <Bronzdragon> Cybylt!
[13:30:56] <Cybylt> Grits!
[13:31:36] <Bronzdragon> Grits?
[13:32:15] <Cybylt> Grits
[13:32:40] <Bronzdragon> I see.
[13:32:53] <Cybylt> http://chefgeorgehirsch.com
[13:32:55] <Cybylt> Grits
[13:34:15] <Cybylt> it's corn for breakfast
[13:34:32] <Bronzdragon> It looks delicous
[13:35:07] <Cybylt> Apparently it's pretty much finer ground polenta and when cooked usually has the consistency of poridge
[13:35:45] <Cybylt> really prolific in souther american cooking where it is to their cooking as rice is of 80% of the world
[13:36:17] <Bronzdragon> I see
[13:36:31] <Cybylt> I usually make it with sausage gravy and a fried egg or two
[13:36:42] <Bronzdragon> See, that DOES sound tasty
[13:36:52] <Cybylt> today I simply have it with toast that has strawberry jam on it
[13:37:11] <Cybylt> oh, and cheddar jack cheese stirred into the grits
[13:37:19] <Bronzdragon> What is "jam".
[13:37:24] <Bronzdragon> Is that like our marmalade?
[13:37:24] <Cybylt> preserves
[13:37:26] <Cybylt> jelly
[13:37:32] <Bronzdragon> Jelly?
[13:37:41] <Bronzdragon> Oh, I see!
[13:37:44] <Cybylt> preserves is closer, since it has chunks of strawberry in it
[13:38:01] <Bronzdragon> Wait, I thought marmalade was the chunky one
[13:38:13] <Bronzdragon> Whereas preserves was just whole fruits, basically
[13:38:31] <Cybylt> oh
[13:38:38] <Cybylt> then it is a marmalade I guess
[13:38:50] <Cybylt> though over here marmalade specifically refers to citrus jellies
[13:39:16] <Cybylt> http://www.creebs.com
[13:39:37] <Bronzdragon> Yeah, see, you can totally see the strawberries still in there.
[13:40:07] <Bronzdragon> That said, don't ask me about sweet fruit-based sandwich spreads
[13:40:30] <Cybylt> I just like Knott's
[13:40:33] <Apsup> Huh, I look away for a moment and Cybylt appears and suddenly irc looks like it's active.
[13:40:42] <Cybylt> because Knott's is pretty cool
[13:41:10] <Cybylt> Hello Apsup
[13:41:53] <Bronzdragon> Hey Apsup. Jam/jelly/marmalade/preservatives, take your pick
[13:42:15] <Cybylt> Huh, I didn
[13:42:16] <Cybylt> t
[13:42:27] <Cybylt> know that Knott's is the reason Boysenberries are still around
[13:42:39] <Bronzdragon> Boysonberries, eh?
[13:42:59] <Cybylt> a hybrid of raspberry, blackberry and loganberry
[13:43:02] <Apsup> ......None of those are really my jam, so...
[13:44:26] <Cybylt> they were found by Knott and a USDA employee on a dying farm lot. Knott then began growing the seeds from the plants and named them after the farm's old owner
[13:45:15] <Cybylt> Knott's produce stand became famous for them
[13:45:58] <Cybylt> eventually her turned a section of his land into a little amusement park
[13:45:59] <Cybylt> http://www.anaheimhotels.com
[13:46:03] <Cybylt> and now it looks like this
[13:46:08] <Cybylt> he*
[13:48:08] <Bronzdragon> ...
[13:48:14] <Bronzdragon> That's quite different
[13:48:59] <Cybylt> Lame, the family didn't want to hold onto the park or the farms after the death of Walter Knott, the founder. So they sold the park to Cedar and the farms and jam processing to Smuckers
[13:50:14] <Bronzdragon> Why's that lame?
[13:51:42] <Cybylt> Why would anyone want to sell their own theme park?
[13:52:05] <Bronzdragon> ... wait, was the themepark already build before it was sold to Ceder?
[13:55:53] <Cybylt> Sold in the 90's
[13:56:15] <Cybylt> so aside from a roller coaster or two it was pretty much the same

[17:51:27] <Cybylt> I can't go to sleep until I get home from work
[17:51:45] <Cybylt> there is a nice late lunch/early dinner to be had at 3 or 4
[17:51:52] <Cybylt> and then work 6 to 8
[17:51:56] <Cybylt> I've been up since 2am
[17:52:01] <Cybylt> also
[17:52:04] <Cybylt> "I currently like Persona 4. But there are ZERO people of colour in it, everyone is white."
[17:52:05] <Cybylt> wut
[18:02:31] <Apsup> Fun fact. When Persona 1 was localized the setting was changed to be us and one of the characters got turned black.

[22:58:43] <GauntletWizard> How's people?
[22:59:03] <GauntletWizard> I am getting rather sick of the "Scroogled" ads
[22:59:21] <GauntletWizard> They were hilarious at first... Now? just boring, and sad
