Sometimes things just come together. At justom's party, the combination of Sesame Street reminisces and discussion of the El Bulli restaurant in Spain led to mad experimentation in the kitchen to create A Glass Of Cookie Juice. And, in fact, it turned out to be a fairly successful rendition of a liquid chocolate chip cookie. (We decided we didn't have the ingredients, time, or equipment to make a wafer of milk to eat with it, but we did have some ideas...)
And: "Laura and Victor together are nearly a von Neumann machine of trouble." Hee!
