I brought my netbook with me this morning on a early morning lawyerin' run. As I walked in my office building, I realized I look like a photocopier repairman with a small black bag that looks like a tool bag. That's the image I'm looking for - not the Brunoesque European "man" bag depicted above.

If there's any doubt, you could always add a tool belt with plumber's crack. That should settle it once and for all...

I already have the plumber's crack. Maybe I could compromise and just wear a nascar hat and a dirty t-shirt instead of the tool belt.

(no offense to any plumbers on the board - I know you guys already deal with enough $hit!).

Sure!



Case Logic LNEO-10 7-10" Netbook Sleeve LNEO-10 - B&H Photo

Although I didn't pay anywhere near $13 for this nice little bag.

Front pocket handy for holding skype headset, batteries, USB memory drive, pen/pencil, etc. That's what I had in there this morning when I grabbed the bag in a hurry.

I butterflied the shrimp (but left the shell on the underside), marinated it in lemon juice, garlic, olive oil, various ground peppers and salt. Then grill - put the shell side down on the grill, and it just takes about 6 to 7 minutes to be cooked through.

They came out fantastic, as usual. I don't do this often, because it takes a bit of work to butterfly the shrimp. Only worth doing for really large shrimp. But they get some awesome jumbo gulf shrimp around here, so I make it now and them.

That's shorthand for very large shrimp. U-6 ==> ~ 6 shrimp to the pound (uncleaned)

Gosh - mine yesterday were picture perfect. I'm so sad I didn't take photos!!!! Next time I will definitely take some photos because they certainly made a beautiful presentation!
