Webgame Wednesday: Crumbs

Thanksgiving is at our doorstep and we'll soon be stuffing our faces. It only seems appropriate, then, to focus this week's Webgame Wednesday on the art of eating. The simple puzzle game Crumbs asks you to hold your mouse button down and take as big a bite as you can from a cookie. Sounds simple enough. But you've barely got a second or two to complete the task. Should you take a bigger bite, or sneak in a couple of smaller bites? How does the shape of the cookie affect your eating pattern? The objective, of course, is to chomp down as much of the cookie as possible in the time you're allotted. The game is super short, but you can cycle back through, trying to improve your eating ability--just the sort of training you'll need to survive the holidays.

Idiot Box

Overstuffed

Thanksgiving around the dial

Here’s the game plan, people: Wake up early on Thanksgiving Day. That way, you can catch all of the “Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade” (KOB-4 9 a.m.). Something about seeing Al Roker in a parka really fires up one’s appetite. Follow that with a little football. The first game is “Green Bay Packers at Detroit Lions” (KASA-2 10:30 p.m.) Given that Green Bay is undefeated, the game will probably suck, so head on over to “The National Dog Show” (KOB-4 12 p.m.) around halftime and start rooting for your favorite Pomeranian instead. After the announcement of Best in Show, you can catch more football with “Miami Dolphins at Dallas Cowboys” (KRQE-13 2 p.m.).

T-minus turkey day: some recipes

In this week’s food section, Ari shares winter squash secrets (Secret No. 1: turn it into a chocolate pie) that make this oft-frowned-upon cucurbit a joy to consume. There’s also easy-peasy soup and some crispy roasted “root” recipes as well.

What are you working on for Thanksgiving? If you have any recipe links worth sharing, we’d love to have a look.

The Freak 8-Legged Lamb

One person can only tolerate a certain amount of Southwestern ski lodge tchotchkes. This I learned while shopping with the family in Taos' downtown square over the Thanksgiving weekend.

But if you can make it past the endless array of turquoise-this, Kokopelli-that, and enough New Age silk scarves to suffocate a Kenny G crowd twice over, you might stumble on the Governor Bent House and Museum.

Sam Adams

Part antique gift shop, part curiostore, the Bent House showcases an intriguing array of New Mexican miscellany. My find of the day, across from the 100-year devil shark baby, was the "Freak 8-Legged Lamb."

If, like me, you are a fan of the Museum of Jurassic Technology in Los Angeles, you might agree that our mainstream museums suffer from a general lack in items of questionable authenticity and hybrid surgical experimentation. Which is exactly why the Freak 8-Legged Lamb put a holiday shine on an otherwise gray, snowy Thanksgiving weekend.

The text in the picture reads:

"This lamb was born on a ranch 7 miles west of Mountainair, N.M. in 1929. It is abnormal in that it should have been twins. Notice the two legs on the back and the 3rd ear on the top of its head. It is exceptionally unusual since most freaks have double heads. It lived 5 days."

If that isn't enough to sate your fucked-up taxidermy fix, you might see a stuffed ash tray-holding alligator while antiquing in Nob Hill.
