I was at a bar with some mates yesterday between shifts. Somehow we got on the topic of eating various animals. Someone mentioned cooking duck is how I remember the conversation starting. One of my friends in the course of the conversation "jokingly" mentioned buying a live sheep to prepare and eat. Well, it turns out that this was not, in fact, a joke. They started looking up places to buy livestock, getting price quotes, the whole deal. This particular friend of mine actually would have gone tonight to get it, but he could not get anyone to cover his shift, so someone else is getting it for him. I think the plan is to get it tonight, hang it up for however long (by it's hind hooves), bleed it, then prepare (not sure how). The weather is supposed to be bad here on the east coast for the next day or two so I'm not sure if it's actually going to go off, but I am certainly looking forward to this whole thing. I'm not usually for this kind of thing (it sounds a bit Sarah Palin for my taste), but I'm a little giddy. Should be interesting.
