Chocolate Tempering – Check, Faiz Quoting – Check

15 12 2009

Ok, there will be no talk of Bagels and Cream Cheese now.

Was at my first Chocolate baking class last night. Got to play with a lot of “working chocolate” – some of this involved spreading tempered chocolate on a large granite counter… good fun. and made a Double Chocolate Brownie Torte.

But, also got to quote Faiz at a colleague.

So, I had signed up for a cooking class with a couple of friends. One of whom is an ex-colleague – S.

S had planned to meet me and K* at work and then drive up to the class together.  Anyway, S arrives a bit late. I was in the midst of wrapping things up quickly, so she did not get introduced around properly.

Yet… yet there were broken hearts all around the office.

You see S is absolutely gorgeous and a game programmer == a CS geek’s dream. Unfortunately (for them) she also happens to be married. :) Which explains what I did after the class – consoled one colleague by quoting Faiz.

Any recos on how I should console the rest? :)

* a female colleage :) I am sure the next time I mention a cooking class, a bunch of guys from work are lining up to go.

* Besides, I am basking in my new found status as the person with gorgeous woman friends. Any ideas on how to milk that status are welcome too.

Let me get this straight – people will go to a CHOCOLATE baking class for WOMEN?

Some people have their priorities all wrong.

??!

Falsie:
You’re looking at this all wrong.

They’re obviously hoping to combine the two, especially if it involves “spreading tempered chocolate”…

BM:
I love the subconscious ‘milk’ throw-in on a post about brownies. Or was it?

And you can just snap your fingers and demand the guys do anything. Seriously – women AND chocolates? You’re like the gatekeeper to heaven.

Falstaff: so are you suggesting men go to a WOMEN baking class for CHOCOLATE?

BM: Santa Claus, Loch Ness Monster, Tooth Fairy, a female game programmer…

*DUCKS*

Falsie: do you mean that the men wouldn’t have a shot in hell when they stand next to chocolate?

??!: exactly! thank you. but I need to figure out how to have most fun being this gatekeeper to heaven person.

km: lol! and sigh, no faith you have.

Do I have to refer you to her SIGGRAPH papers now? Or do you believe SIGGRAPH is Loch Ness. :)
