One the one hand, I'm having serious mood issues. |
On the other hand, on Sunday I made a cassoulet. Well, not really... I didn't have any duck fat, so I substituted bacon grease. I figured that was okay, and I even said as much, in public... "... and if some French chef wants to make an issue of it, well, that ain't gonna frighten me!"
I don't think that Microsoft has a policy against making public statements that bring the wrath of a dozen French chefs onto the Sammamish campus. (Thankfully I didn't try this when I was working in building 7, where I understand there are more rules about this kind of thing.)
I have to admit, fighting off a dozen French chefs *is* a bit tougher than it sounds, but the first 11 were really pretty easy. It was that last one....
I finally got him buried under the collection of "E.T." video game cartridges being recycled into brand spanking new CDs intended for distributing Windows ME.
And, someone, just satisfy my curiosity, please answer this, but I think I know the answer already from the context; I'm pretty sure this is what he said.
But just in case I'm wrong: how do you say "Beware... I was trained by the chicken" in French?
