Vinge and Pratchett and food

Read recently: Children of the Sky, a proper sequel to A Fire Upon the Deep, set on the Tines world. I liked it, others haven't. The stars of such a book should be the Tines and explorations of them, and I felt it delivered. The villains... Vinge isn't big on subtlety. And there's an obvious hook, almost need, for yet another sequel.

Also, Snuff, the latest Discworld book. Also enjoyable, also not up to peak work. It's Vimes. And a bit of Watch, but mostly Vimes. I don't have non-spoilery comments. Do have some spoilery ones.

I had tabasco sauce once. Recently I bought some other sort of chili hot sauce. Having run out of that quickly, I bought some sriricha which I heard about only recently, sort of Thai hot sauce, and hot indeed. I also got some fish sauce, only later did I notice that it's 57% daily sodium for 1 Tbsp serving, which seems high. The sriricha is 8%, the previous hot sauce was saltless.

Trader Joe's Bibimbap was either good or so spicey quality doesn't matter. TJ vegetable samosas were decent, though not as good as what I can get at the Alewife T stop. TJ pork siu mai were better than expected, and a cross between proper dim sum siu mai and the tiny things Japanese restaurants have been passing off.
