I don't remember my Japanese copy looking like the brown one though....I thought I just had gold print and no picture. I'll double check when I get home though.

And weeee I'm going fabric shopping in Philly, I'm so excited!
And oh my gosh I played so much Just Dance yesterday my arms are sore.

It could be a different 'copy'? Like a promotional one, discontinued print and a host of other things.

Books often have drastically different styles from region to region and various covers can become discontinued for a host of reasonable and idiotic situations. So it wouldn't really be that unusual to own a copy that's a discontinued print of a book that's still being made, if that makes sense?

If the book is a special copy for any reason (giveaways, short release, preorder, etc) the covers are almost always different then regular prints.

That's what I heard about the Japanese cover too, yeah-- brown and gold with no picture. It just makes this all the more confusing!

Have a blast with the fabric shopping too! <3 Might I ask what projects you're shopping for?

Rabbit's extremely lean but I've never had it myself, so no idea what it would taste like. I assume it wouldn't be too gamey if you got a farmed rabbit.
Also, fun fact; in the middle ages newborn rabbits were considered to not be meat and thus was acceptable to eat during Lent (now you know the main origin of those chocolate easter bunnies...)

Most of us agreed it was very similar to chicken.

They served goose, too; I'd only had it once before, at my mother's fabled Christmas of Five Meats, on which occasion it was pretty disastrous and we all decided we could go the rest of our lives without eating it again.

This was better than I remembered it, but it strikes me as very little payoff for the amount of work you have to put in cooking and carving it. My mother also said that the carcass looked like something out of Starship Troopers, leading us all to refer to it as the Christmas Mantis for the rest of the night.

Your mother drops the strangest references at the weirdest times.

Both sound rather good when you put it that way. Though I can see how goose might feel like a lesser choice compared to the payoff of the more popular flying critters. A big turkey sounds pretty good right now..

I am going to agree with SV on this one.

Tired, but currently waiting at my sister's house for the package delivery guy to drop off her new phone here. Was supposed to show up Monday, but never did. So here's hoping it shows up today.

I just got dressed. if they weren't dirty I'd probably be in my yoga pants, instead I'm in jeans that are a size too big, my new Woodstock and snoopy baseball shirt and a new sweater because my house is cold, my mom is providing tech support for my nana and I can't reach the damn thermostat.
