HNT and Thursday Brain Teaser


Ok, here is the nekkid truth about yours truly. I am a potatoe/steak kinda girl. Once in a blue moon I allow myself to go to American Style (yes there are three in Reykjavik) and get this dish. Nowhere in Icleand did I find a peppersteak that compares to this one! Whenever I go there, I always order the same, this dish. The sauce with whole pepper-corns just the way I like it. The baked potatoe with sourcream ... Yummy!

our weekly Trivia:

"He studied art in London before returning to the United State to be a painter. His work even included the historic piece The House of Representatives. Helping to found the National Academy of Design, he was more interested in communications through electricity by the 1830s. The telegraph he built between Baltimore and Washington, D.C., first message was “What hath God wrought.”"

If you think you got it, got to the comment section and HINT!!! at the right answer. This way others get to play too;) And if you just blurt it out, well this is not the day to be messing with me!

Supernova must, too, have a source

And the man in this quiz, too, of course.

(I didn't mean to fool you, Minka, that was just me when I was 11. But I do remember learning that in school.)

 
At 13:44, Blogger Minka said...

Joel...dash dot dot dash? ok next Wednesday then?!

There's no connection really. That's just the club I made up with my friends. We were secret agents, you see, sending secret messages and using codes and generally watching out for demolition agents. (I posted a few of my childhood stories at the main blog, then decided to make this new mini-blog) - but now the me at 11 seems to be going off all by himself and I can't stop him.

dash.dot.dash... or more than one more.

 
At 14:02, Blogger Tan Lucy Pez said...

I'm remorseful that I don't know more about this guy.

At 16:48, Blogger tsduff said...

PS: That there is one fabulous looking plateful. As I've said before, you Icelanders had the art of eating down pat!

 
At 16:50, Blogger brian said...

Oh No!!!! Averting my eyes. Well, I guess part four today might not be to your liking then.:)

 
At 16:54, Blogger Jenna Howard said...

Oh I'm ever so pissed.

I typed out this beautiful post and what happened? Gone. Mutter, mutter, mutter.

Warm up the telegraph...I'll tap out my comment that way.

 
At 16:54, Blogger Jenna Howard said...

Oh and that steak...made me weep. Sigh. Gravy. REAL gravy. Sigh.

 
At 17:29, Anonymous neva said...

there is a statue of this man in Central Park, and New York University's core curriculum (MAP) is named after him. (which i found pretty dang impressive). he *also* pioneered daguerreotypes...

as for that steak? i confess the pepper-corn sauce makes it tempting, but you can keep it. on the other hand, that baked potato with sour cream? mmmmm. delish!! xox

 
At 21:10, Blogger Minka said...

indy, that happens when you let the past go...it comes into the present and bites you in the ...elbow!

cube, that was a sweet little message. thank you, I know I am amazing :)

TLP, Remorse is not always the wrong wya to go;)

*puts pillow under his head*

terry, I think teh word remorseful is a mere collection of syllables to him :) And yes we love to eat...lots...especially befor eteh winter!

brian, I canæt wiat for part four, but I am at work and I need peace and quiet to read Real magic. So it will wiat until I get home, although I am very tempted to check it out right now...but I´ll be strong!

Minka is that steak French beuf? *wink* You do know that meals like this are the reason some people on this side of the pond have such a wide girth....morse the pity...What hath God wrought?.... indeed.

 
At 16:35, Blogger Minka said...

Oh no!!! So will you hate me if I serve you veggie food when we meet in San Francisco, that is if we sell the house asap to be there by spring (let it be sooner!!!)?

*grins*

 
At 21:45, Blogger O Ceallaigh said...

When the Boy or Girl Scout has to send a coded message a second time (due to his/her foulups the first time), what does that Scout have?

Princess, that much steak would last me a week. I'm jealous.

 
At 23:11, Blogger Minka said...

Miz B. you can serve me anythign you like and I would gobble it down with delight :) I am pretty sure of that!

OC, why donæt you have soemthign to eat while I´ll try to digest your hint :)

"Come see Les's mor-se!"

 
At 00:09, Blogger Minka said...

FN, I think this is the first time you hinted and you did it so well. Bravo!
And yes there is a restaurant chain called "American Style" it might be called something else in other countries though.

 
At 02:21, Blogger QuillDancer said...

My mind is blank.
Once a thought started to flicker.
Really don't know.
Sucks to be me.
Ernestly.

 
At 02:34, Blogger Miz BoheMia said...

I know... the point was to let you know... we won't be in Spain once our house sells... WHA? Yep.... *grins wider*

 
At 06:26, Blogger ariel said...

I am thinking about what to intent that'd fit my family name and would be nice to use as a verb.

 
At 10:15, Blogger Minka said...

Quilly, and with you being a teacher and all!

Miz B. are you serious. Are you moving? What is ahppening. I expect an e-mail about this into the smallest of details...

ariel, Nice! Very well done!

 
At 11:37, Blogger Miz BoheMia said...

Tonight, when the kiddos are in bed, the email will be forthcoming... bohemians everywhere promise, will hold me to it and will kick my ass if it doesn't happen! FO SHO!

At 00:13, Blogger Tim Rice said...
