Recipe: slow’s crunching sandwich

Last night I did the best sandwich I ever eaten in my whole life. What I did:

  • One package of “american sandwich bread”. It looks like normal sandwich bread, except that is three or four times bigger and comes with just three slices. It looks like the bread they use in those ready-to-eat sandwiches sold on supermarkets (except that you buy the whole thing, not half of it).
  • Lettuce. You will need two leafs, at least. More if you buy a small lettuce.
  • Sliced chester, or any other meat you want.
  • Cheese. Sliced.
  • Mayonnaise.
  • French fries, sliced in small pieces (we call here “straw french fries”, I don’t know the correct name in English).
  • Corn. Not the one you use to make popcorn, the one for pizzas and the like.

Using these ingredients, do what you would usually do to make a sandwich: pass the mayonnaise in one side of the sliced bread, add the cheese, the lettuce, the corn, the chester and then the french fries. Repeat the process, building a “three floor sandwich”.

It is great ’cause you have a very dry bread, but the lettuce and the corn make it somewhat “wet” and the french fries add the crunching feeling.

Tonight, another experiment. I’m really getting addicted to sandwiches.

The great wars are coming…

Some time ago, Cringley commented about how the MacMini would be the next DVD player/recorder. It wasn’t until recently that I read his assay; it took a small comment by Massen that this was what Microsoft intended to do with XBox. Then Rafasgj jumped in and asked what would happen if cool games, released to consoles and such, start being release for Mac. Then I got it:

If you have a box that could access internet, play DVDs, record DVDs from you HD camcorder, play games, buy on-line content, then you have the most advanced multimedia machine connected right into your TV. Even better: as it is made by only one company, you can create a really huge monopoly over content presentation. This, my friends, was Bill Gates wettest dream.

In short, this is good, ’cause you are breaking Microsoft monopoly. On the other hand, you are creating a new monopoly, which is bad.

But I could see one scene from “Pirates Of Silicon Valley”, where Gates is screaming to Jobs “‘That doesn’t count, because I stolen that first’, huh?”. I bet that if Apple succeeds on this plan, Bill Gates will get a call from Jobs saying: “Payback is a motherfucker, huh?”

I’m not dead yet

In case you are wondering, no, I didn’t kill myself this weekend. I got really depressed on Saturday for… hm… “some reason” but nothing that I wasn’t feeling before.

Anyway, as Saturday is my sleepy day, I took a small four hour nap in the afternoon, only to wake up with a weird dream still on my memory. For some reason, I spent the rest of the time I was awake putting some new ideas around that dream and I really liked the way it looked (inside my mind).

So it was about 2 am in the Sunday and I couldn’t sleep. Not because I slept almost all day, but because I couldn’t stop thinking about the story. So I decided to write it down. It was 3 am when I finally got down, completely tired, but satisfied.

And I spent part of Sunday in the story again. I don’t get in the point a want, and I’m still adding stuff to the story. In my mind, it is an amazing story, but, when I read it, it doesn’t fit on what I want. But I’ll got there, eventually.

Fun idea

So I have being playing with all that “What kind of * you are?”. Now I have an idea: if you know me, take the quiz as you remember I am. Them put the results on the comments. Fun, huh? That’s the opportunity you have being waiting for so long to make me look like an idiot (not that I didn’t gave you enough opportunities yet…)
