A CHEF IS MANY THINGS

functions and formulas

The company sent me to school last week for three days. I learned all about the MOS Program "Excel" and to a lesser degree "Access".
It is "Access" that I use the most.

I had no idea that you could do all that stuff with Excel.
I am very impressed that some fellows had time to put all that together.
I can imagine when they got through they were right impressed with themselves.


Dress to Impress

I learned quite a bit about Excel, but I had a real breakthrough while I was getting dressed for the second days class.
The shirt I was going to wear looked a little bit ragged.
I do not own an Iron, and there was no time to take it to the Laundry.
I was out of any shirts that were crisp and fresh from the Laundry.

Did you know that you can iron a shirt using a 4" Sauce Pot, a 10 Inch Skillet and a French Knife? All you have to do is heat em up and press away!

BAM!
I GUARANTEE!

Impressed yet?
Low works well for Polyester and Rayon and Medium for Blends. While I recommend Medium-High for Cotton, the timing is critical, and I need to research the Metallurgy on the Cookware.
As soon as I get it all down, I will label my stove.

I also found that for Cuffs and Collars its tough to beat your George Forman Grill.
I'm gonna go buy an Ironing Board and some spray starch today!

a blow dryer set on high heat and some of that downy wrinkle release stuff works too ....

oh right. why would you have a blow dryer in your place ?? men don't blow dry their hair, generally ....

props for your resourcefulness - can't believe you didn't scorch anything!

I did wear a pressed shirt to my wedding. Unless my life takes a very bad turn, though, I will not have to wear one again until my funeral. It seems to be working for you--riding that $60 bike to work in your pressed shirt. I think that's cool!

RDG- A curling iron can come in handy too. Mostly I hang my stuff up in a hot steamy showers. Curls my hair but unwrinkles my clothes.

I have calphalon cookware- will that work well!

Maybe you should just buy a wrinkle-free shirt! This is hilarious. I kept hoping the bottoms of those pans were good and clean, because you could really make a mess of a shirt otherwise.

Steve, you're gonna make your daughter want to come home from college just so she can iron your shirts.

What a hoot! I'd never have thought of that!! I can just see you doing this!

Get the babe in the store to give you a demo!

i'LL BET I COULD MAKE SOME CURLY FRIES ON A CURLING IRON...
LAST NIGHT I MADE POPCORN IN MY DRIER!

Mother of Invention said...

HA! Good one! And straight fries with your daughter's hair straightener! And waffles with an iron too? You're a nutbar!
I do love a shirt that smells like popcorn. Wear it on a movie date!!

I bet if you ever get an iron, you will make grilled cheese sandwiches with it.
