Chris' award-winning pie presentation.

I want to know why you want to win the porn when you don't even have a tv.

Maybe she plans on using it as an ice breaker once she gets a date, and then gets back to his house.

Once we win the porn, we're gonna have a party at Dave's house with the big TV and good speakers. We'll invite everyone, and start early in the day with our old pity porn. It'll be great.

Also, at the right party, I've wanted to project porn on a blank wall with the sound off. Or I could switch that up and play just the soundtracks. But not at Pie Contest.

There've been dates. But they haven't lead anywhere serious.

You know, when you first said he won that division with a PP presentation, I thought it involved pie CHARTS.

Because, you know, ha ha, a pie chart? Definitely not a pie.

I'm sorely tempted to fly up to Sacramento that weekend for the contest. :)

Maybe you should try introducing the porn at an earlier stage in the relationship.

You're invited.

Actually, that's been taken care of. The drought is over. But nothing serious is going to come of that, either.

Oh, that's too bad. When did all of this happen? I was only out of town 5 days.

Earlier this summer. And occasionally since.

Off topic but I had the weirdest dream about you last night. I was thinking the other day about how it's ironic that all I can seem to attract are men who want children, whereas you -- the one who really wants children -- seem to be having difficulty in this area. This thought apparently wormed it's way into my unconcious because last night I dreamed that we met in person and decided that from now on we would trade any newly-acquired boyfriends. This meeting took place inside a swimming pool (but we were fully clothed). When we tried to exit the pool we found that it had been surrounded by gas stoves with all the burners turned to high so that we couldn't climb over them without being burned. The only other exit was through a cage-fighting cage full of a bunch of scary-looking guys in loincloths who looked like the Picard clone from the movie Star Trek: Nemesis. They wanted us to fight them in a cage match before they'd let us leave but fortunately I had my pistol with me so I brandished it at them and shot into the air for emphasis. They moved out of the way so I grabbed your hand and we escaped.

I have no idea what Freud would say about all that, but I was pretty amused that blogosphere people are turning up in my dreams now.

Nice! Good going, Megan!

All your pie are belong to us? (metaphorically or not?)

I think you are going about the pie contest all wrong. When I held a pie contest I had pie for a week (and then I had compost ...) but if you make everyone take their pies home with them, you don't get to play Thanksgiving with the leftovers.

I just tried to make a lovely apple pie but it didn't really get very pie-y in the middle. I need to work on my technique, or just find different apples (which defeats the point of the pie since the point of the pie was to use apples that already exist in my home).

Thanks for your boyfriends and for saving me. Although a cage match is probably my best option. I've long wished I could settle more conflicts with a cage match (which favors me and would take less time) instead of reasonable discussion.

Tt takes at least a month for me to even consider eating pie again.

Did you use cornstarch? Not a lot, but some? The type of apple matters a lot to an apple pie.

No history of pie that fails to mention Fafblog can be taken seriously.

Pie is a force that defines us all.

Chris, if you're out there, this is the funniest stinkin' thing I've read in a month. -K.

I tell Chris to check the blog but it's low priority for him. I love this presentation though, because it is SO him.

Cats like to eat pie. They also like salmagundi.

I like cats.

Your headlines could use some work. They don't really tell a story, which does leave your readers - if not confused - then at least lost. Had I not been so interested in the subject, I may have stopped reading at your 17th slide entitled "History (cont.)"

Cornstarch, huh? I'll try it. We got three more pounds of apples this week. Can I do apple & plum? I don't have any lemon but plums are kind of tart, right?

Also, when I use whole wheat pastry flour things seem to be gummy. My crust was gummy and I just made a cobbler which also turned out kind of gummy. Do I have to use white flour for real dumplings on my cobbler? N. says yes, but he is always trying to shake my whole grains. I sort of like the nuttiness of whole wheat flour.

Finally,I think that was a hot tub, not a pool and they just wanted to offer you some samosas. There was no need for brandishing anything.

You go with all whole wheat pastry flour? Hmm, I've never tried that. I don't think whole wheat pastry flour has much gluten in it. When my baking calls for white flour, I usually switch out to 2/3 white, 1/3 wheat pastry flour (NOT wheat flour), which adds a mellow, rich flavor but doesn't change the baking properties of the flour. You might try mixing white and wheat for your crust. I trust you aren't using too much water?

Can't see how an apple/plum pie could be bad.
