I'm sorry Amber, I'm afraid I can't do that.

(As much as I want to!)

Thanks Amber!

Cheers for the tinting options Wock, but I just had to go with the Amber inspiration.

It wouldn`t surprise me if she comes from Cydonia. She`s got too much going for her to be one of us!!

I would have too. It fits perfectly and is just a tad creepy which fits this forum nicely.


I mean look at the 3 legged pirate dog (shiver).

If Amber is from Cydonia, it`s not the three legged dog you need to worry about.

Apologies. I'm not really at liberty to discuss any of this.

I think this is an example of Amber's NSA training

It`s quite possible, AV trained them, but they don`t know it.
I`ll ask Uri, he`ll know.

Cydonia? Do you mean the Greek goddess, that she is born of her in some way? Or that Amber is from a particular section of Mars? Or from the area in Crete that it is named after?

What the heck to you have against, Greeks, vic-k!!! I'm part Greek. I mean, look at my name. You'd best explain yourself, my friend. You don't want to go pissing off Greeks, you know.

But what I really want to know is why emoticons are not available in this thread? I could have really used one just then....

Watch it Vic-k!

Alex will give you the full re-enactment of the "Greek Goddess of the Ultimate Smack Down and No Repent or Recourse from Your Ultimate Demise".


He wrath could leave you legless or she could curse you with termites and how would you hold your alcohol if not in your wooden leg?


Be warned I say!

(Or bribe her into submission with this)

In Greek: καλιτσούνια Κρήτης, pronounced kah-leet-SOON-yah KREE-tees

These sweet cheese pastries use a rolled dough instead of phyllo. Depending on how they are folded (see below), they can be baked or fried. They are holiday tradition on the Greek island of Crete, but eaten at other times as well because they're so delicious! These call for the fresh soft variety of myzithra (not the aged salty type) cheese, and if you can't find it, try Italian ricotta.

(See this recipe with step by step photos.)

Prep Time: 40 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

FOR THE DOUGH
1/2 cup of olive oil
1/2 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of unflavored strained yogurt
2 eggs, beaten with a fork
1 teaspoon of baking powder
2 3/4 cups of all-purpose flour
1/4 cup of brandy
----------
FOR THE FILLING
1 2/3 pounds of fresh soft myzithra cheese
1/2 - 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons of sugar
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon of grated orange peel
2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
1 egg, beaten (for glaze)

Hmmm, termites. What an innovative, and appealing idea.....

Wock, you are a cagey fellow. That recipe, OMG. OR should I said OMGoddess! and 'try' Italian Ricotta! Why my dear, Wock, I am also part Italian (what part I daren't say...)

But the idea that bribery would work in regards to vic-k, no way! Smacking down that puppy is WAY too tempting!

Hmmmm, that maybe didn't come out just right....
