As Xeni posted yesterday, there is a serious shortage of Sriracha sauce a-brewing. Jason Kottke suggests some of his favorite alternative brands of the red stuff, singling out Shark Brand ($7/bottle).
Not that this stuff affects me. I'm happy so long as my pockets are stuffed with tiny catering-sized sachets of Tobasco, which I import the UK by the grosslot. Best thing about these: the TSA doesn't register them as liquids on their scanners, so you can go through airport security without worrying about digging them out, packing them into a moisture-terror baggie, and then restoring them.
What are your Sriracha alternatives for the Great Shortage?
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
