Slowly we're moving from crisp temperatures and colored leaves to icy and frost. It's definitely a slowing down of many things, but also a pickup as the holidays come into full swing, and we start getting more holiday music and scents of cinnamon and peppermint into the air.

So let's go ahead and enjoy the changes in the air and a holiday season with a warm drink, whether coffee, tea, or apple cider or anything else and talk about anything and everything on our minds


spri-ga-tito! spriga-spriga-spriga-tito!

hello circuit! are you playing pokemon?


Step 1: Take slice of bread
Step 2: Put slice of cheese on top
Step 3: Microwave it until the cheese is bubbly

Question: Is this technically a pizza


File: 1669062445110.png (176.82 KB, 665x397, 665:397, Bar18.png) ImgOps Google




Do we really want to live in a world where that's called pizza though. If Italians hear they will be very sad.

...we should at least be putting some oregano on that


File: 1669062606278.png (89.14 KB, 369x319, 369:319, 130480067705.png) ImgOps Google

Nope, Not for lack of wanting, but since right now it's having a lot of technical issues I'm going to wait and see if they fix it up first.

No, because it's missing tomato sauce. it's just half of a cheese sandwich



I considered that cutoff point, but
1. You can add some ketchup
2. This is pizza: https://anitalianinmykitchen.com/pizza-bianca/


File: 1669062791918.png (109.72 KB, 291x336, 97:112, Bar91.png) ImgOps Google

Not up to me.



Who is it up to? Because calling it pizza feels like a crime.


File: 1669063066105.png (247.46 KB, 460x589, 460:589, Bar88.png) ImgOps Google

Not sure. Whomever dictates the definitions. I'm sure saying it out loud in Italy would just make you disappear.

Same way people can call a hotdog a sandwich, or a poptart a sandwich.

Now, it doesn't make a good pizza at all.


File: 1669063117144.jpg (42.22 KB, 656x661, 656:661, 130480089412.jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

If you want some fun with this, look up the definition of a pizza. Amazing how much stuff is actually more 'pizza-like'



>I'm sure saying it out loud in Italy would just make you disappear.

I feel like that'd be both just and fair.

Poptart a sandwich? I can kind of see a hotdog (and I've obviously heard of the "controversy"), but a poptart? This is pure anarchy. It's so much closer to being a cousin of the burrito! Unless that's a sandwich too? And what of the open-topped sandwiches, anyway? Are they sandwiches?


I'm not sure a definition would help. Consider this first one that pops up:

>a dish of Italian origin, consisting of a flat round base of dough baked with a topping of tomatoes and cheese, typically with added meat, fish, or vegetables.

So, a pizza has to be round, does it. Nobody tell the Sicilians: https://www.thespruceeats.com/what-is-sicilian-pizza-2708787

Well if you read down it gets a little looser, since they put in 'typically' so there's some room for flexability


Can't we just define Pizza as "delicious"

Pineapple and sardines


Look, there are ALWAYS going to be shit-stirrers.



You need only scratch the surface to find degeneracy you could never previously conceive of.

Also, one the most extreme definitions for "sandwich" is basically a thing inbetween two other things, where both of those two are the same. So an oreo would be a sandwich. But then some people make "diet sandwiches" where they replace the bread entirely with lettuce. This might still be a sandwich to some?

But then let's keep going. Consider a sandwich where you put a piece of bread inbetween two pieces of bread. A bread sandwich? Consider then a tube of Pringles. That's a whole stack of potato chip sandwiches in there.


Ah, but "typically" doesn't help if I want to decide if one particular thing is a pizza or not. If it's an atypical pizza... it's still pizza!


I kinda like the former and love the latter.

Hahaha, well pineapple and ham is actually really good, but I just had to be a troll

Well the main idea is a sauce has to be between bread and cheese, or else it's just inspired by pizza



Again, pizza bianca from under that link from before. Real authentic Italian pizza. No sauce whatsoever.

I don't really like pineapple in much of any form. At best I can have a pineapple soda sometimes if nothing else is available.

You know what, whatever makes you happy I guess.

Huh, well that's fair enough. Pineapple does have a sickly sweet taste to it



I don't think there's a happy outcome here. We flew too close to the Sun, and now a piece of soggy microwaved bread with cheese on top is technically pizza

not as fantastic. Car had to go into repair over the weekend and just got word it's done, so now I'll have to make a rush to go pick it up after work.

Because of that didn't get food shopping done so have that tomorrow, which also doesn't help that I have a few things I want to do so it's just a busy wild day to a busy week

How was movies?


Oof, car troubles. The one upside to not having one.

Movies was fun! Thei rprogram tends to be WAY too cramped, so there wasn't a lot of breathing room between movies on saturday, so you better believe I was tired. Enough so that while I had no trouble getting out of bed sunday and going to teach my class, I SOMEHOW both slept through an alarm and slept all the way to 1 PM today. Not happy about that.

But yeah, the movies were fine. Of the seven I watched, only two are any I'd consider not-that-great.

And I made some damn cool purchases at the market, too.

You know what, all things considered it's probably okay to have slept in today then and get some rest, that sounds like it was super exhausting.

Glad you had a good time with it all


This just almost never happens to me. Even at my most tired, I tend to take ages to fall asleep, and certainly never sleep through an alarm. The latter is the part htat really bothers me about this.

Mmm-hmm! I found some REALLY nice releases of two particular movies I thought I'd never see, so that was a blast.

Feeling kind of silly having not gone to a book club event today as well as having not worked through making the medical appointments that I needed to set up.

It's really wild how hard it is to get a Raspberry Pi nowadays - not to mention a specific one.

I should get serious about looking for that CM4102008. Except not so serious as to give money to scalpers. They can go do one.


File: 1669227808186.jpg (9.21 KB, 236x236, 1:1, Coffee and paper.jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

Yeah, I had a bit of a fight getting one. Ended up buying a full bundle thing to get one myself. Sadly the case and usb plug were complete crap



In hindsight I can't believe the deal I got on RPi 1Bs 2 years back. They're kinda old but they're still perfectly capable for when you just need that tiny-but-real computer to do something, and I got 4 of them. Used, sure, but who cares - they came with wifi cards, power supplies and SD cards and I paid like $50 for the lot.

I feel like the way to go to get one is to just check this site daily until you do: https://rpilocator.com/ . Which I will, until I get that CM4. They have CM4002000 on there right now. Which is too bad as while the 1 I can live without, the 008 is non-negotiable, heh.
