Added some temporary "purge a wedge of snow from the bottom if it reaches the top" code, and now it's nicely tumbling down with the simplistic angle of repose behaviour.
Reached the "turkey curry" stage of leftovers.
And now time for the traditional evening meal: buttered cold turkey sandwich avec Texan BBQ prongle cromch
Bit late, and the gravy didn't want to behave, but the stuffing came out great.
Things I am glad I bought: a decent microwave with a defrost setting that works, and a temperature probe to verify that before and after the oven.
Sonoma Distilling Co. Bourbon Whiskey: last one! And...it's dark and weird. Wood, smoke, and upon more sipping, lime/orange skin (not peel, the whole waxy, pithy deal), and smoked kippers again. Glad that last one is fading away. The more I drink, the more my tastebuds give up (or volatiles evaporate?) and it just kinda burns. Resting a while, and it's back to...wax? Kinda sour? Rubbery by the end? Weird one.
Hudson Baby Bourbon: my tastebuds are probably a bit sweet-fatigued from that hot chocolate earlier, but this is a bit of a weird one. Spicy, quite smokey, more ash than peat or anything. Apparently they shake up the barrels with sound, so maybe that's it. Little bit nutty?
Bulleit Frontier Whiskey Rye: buttercream? This is a smooth one. And yet very burny for a 45%.
Woo, disk write error leading to read-only remount during update-initramfs. System: absolutely pooched and unable to recover from this without rolling up sleeves and Sysadminning at it. And this is a kinda throwaway give-it-a-chance-again newish install...which means I hadn't bothered imaging it yet.
Y'know, if any of you were wondering why I put up with Microsoft for all the ranting at their behaviour of late.
Four Roses Small Batch: mead, or at least honey! It's potent from the first sniff, and remains as a pleasant sweet taste. Whole lot of fire in the mouth too, which I think means it's lower in oils.
Mitcher's US*1 Straight Rye Whiskey: slight smoke and honey? It's almost like smoked *fish* or something, which I'd normally hate. Once again a really nice one. (I'm actually not entirely sure if it was this or the Bourbon of theirs I had before; I think the Bourbon's slightly better.)
Sazerac Rye Straight Rye Whiskey: ooh, this one's nice! Spiced, in a very slightly fruity or clovey warming way, even if I can't quite place what. I've had the namesake cocktail, and it's interesting how much of that is just the underlying bourbon being good.
American Eagle 4 Year Old: little bit warm and spicy, not quite right for cinnamon, mum thought peaches. Nice, but mysterious. Definitely peppery, and some kind of acidy sweet fruit hint.
