I realize that long time readers will have a LOL at the fact that I’ve really gotten into cooking lately considering I used to be the laziest asshole this side of the magic microwave box. It’s one of the things I’ve had time to do while working behind the scenes to prepare the comic for re-launch and fix up my art and art business tutorials that I think I’m just consolidating back on to this site because I don’t have the time to maintain a billion websites. Then there is my convention that is in the early stages of planning.
I talk as if I have free time with all of this cooking I’ve been doing thanks to Paleomg. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Basically I found a time travel machine because of diarrhea. Yep, food sensitivities led me to start cooking very often. When you are up against ass torment, you’ll re-think your Magic Box ways. At least I did.
Anyway, Julia Child is cooler than me or you. If you don’t agree you suck ass.
Julia Child was actually in the OSS during World War II. She could probably have kicked everyone’s ass and then give them food as a consolation prize for such an obliterating asskicking. Don’t believe me? From Wikipedia:
“Child joined the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) after finding that she was too tall to enlist in the Women’s Army Corps (WACs) or in the U.S. Navy’s WAVES. She began her OSS career as a typist at its headquarters in Washington, but because of her education and experience soon was given a more responsible position as a top secret researcher working directly for the head of OSS, General William J. Donovan. As a research assistant in the Secret Intelligence division, she typed 10,000 names on white note cards to keep track of officers. For a year, she worked at the OSS Emergency Rescue Equipment Section (ERES) in Washington, D.C. as a file clerk and then as an assistant to developers of a shark repellent needed to ensure that sharks would not explode ordnance targeting German U-boats. In 1944 she was posted to Kandy, Ceylon (now Sri Lanka), where her responsibilities included “registering, cataloging and channeling a great volume of highly classified communications” for the OSS’s clandestine stations in Asia. She was later posted to China, where she received the Emblem of Meritorious Civilian Service as head of the Registry of the OSS Secretariat. For her service, Child received an award that cited her many virtues, including her “drive and inherent cheerfulness.” As with other OSS records, Child’s file was declassified in 2008, and, unlike other files, her complete file is available online.“
Those PBS videos amuse me. ALSO: I want all of Julia Child’s shows on DVD. I need to see if they make that.
However I am so tired that I feel like my eyeballs are about to vomit. I’ll write something more coherent later. Zzzzz.
