Hope everyone had a good holiday weekend...

I had a fairly disappointing experience with the indoor pulled pork that I'm not sure I want to get into too deeply... I bought the wrong cut of meat (since I still don't really understand butchery) that wasn't really well marbled enough to work (ended up a little dry but edible)... and then my cobbled together tin foil contraption was too leaky collect any cooking liquid (so weak/insipid bbq sauce). Not my greatest effort in cookery. It happens.

Otherwise the weekend was relaxed and decent. Watched the US's second half comeback against Turkey... so that was encouraging heading into the World Cup. Also watched a bunch of Ken Burns' Civil War episodes on Netflix... which I hadn't seen since I was a teenager, so that was fun. Additionally tried to get into EU III which I picked up on a midweek special off of Steam... a bit of slow going that, since it's a pretty complicated game. So nothing too exciting, but it was nice to vegetate for three days.
