So, I like to cook, and there’s one thing I cook extremely well: lasagna.  You can ask anyone who’s tried it, it’s double plus good.  Here’s a picture:

Well, today, I ended up making a whole lot extra, and there’s a whole pan of it that would make a very respectable main course.  So I’m offering it up here to the first people who invite Susie and I to dinner, with themselves and three other people, for a total of six people.

You need to provide the oven to bake it in, and the dinner companions.  I’d especially like to meet some new folks, because friendships made over lasagna are the best kind.  We’ll bring lasagna, a fresh bag of salad, and a bottle of wine.  Any other dinner-related snacks/drinks etc. are up to you. In case of a tie, the folks who can fit us in soonest (as long as we can fit it in) get the lasagna and the dinner guests associated with it.

Oh, and just in case you’re wondering, I DO NOT recommend using the regular lasagna noodles that you need to boil first instead of the instant ready noodles.  They’re a whole lot more trouble, a lesson I learned today.  The fingers on my left hand are still tender from trying to peel the noodles apart.

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

“Only the person who has learned Continual Love coming from a heart of Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal with the problem of loneliness.”
