Bump.

Anyone got a "feel good" book? Maybe comedy? Something not too serious - need a break from thrones.

I'm sorry OTPT. Even you don't deserve that garbage.

I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

Just rented a e book straight to my phone from the library. That was fucking neat. With that being said, I’m a fan of having the actual book in my hand and flipping the pages.

Since you didn't stipulate whether you wanted clean or dirty wipes, I'll decide for you. I'll bet you like it dirty.

This college football book is going well so far. It’s going to make me even more jaded, sorry bros. Anyone got a good hiking/outdoors book rec? I have a walk in the woods on hold but want to pick something up today. Tia.

A walk in the woods by Bill Bryson gets two thumbs up from me. First half of the book was significantly better but overall a great read. Makes me want to backpack for a few days and nights somewhere, but where? I’d like to get out of CO.

You hike over to WY and see Roc's baby. That would take a few days.

Pretty sure you’ve mentioned this book before and gave it a great review. I’ll find it and repost it here if you want to hang on.
