Dark days challenge week 2
I have pictures. at home on my camera. and I meant to write this yesterday. when it was theoretically due. such is life. So the meal was! leg of lamb from a farm upstate, purchased at the rhinebeck sheep and wool festival. It was drowned in pomegranate molasses which were SURELY not local (Lebanon, in fact) and many herbs, mostly from the windowsill, some from our csa, a even a little bit...

at Socrates the dogs are romping around, thankful for a place to romp. the guys at two coves garden are sweeping up some leaves and greeting the neighborhood as they wander by. It is nice that they are always there, and always so happy to see you. vesta wasn’t open yet, but they will be later. They are tasty and had a food drive this week. hot bagel was pretty crowded on 30th avenue,...
In Defense of Ohio
bigstar: osmium: From a brooklynvegan comment thread: initial: Anyone who pays $250 to see U2 is a moron, that band is god awful. I mean if you live in Ohio and havent been exposed to anything else thats one thing, but if you are surrounded by other music there is just no excuse. smackdown: “I mean if you live in Ohio and havent been exposed to anything else” you mean like Rocket from the...
Dark Days Challenge week #1
for those of you who might care, more info at the (not so) Urban Hennery. My first DDC meal was an easy standby since my current work schedule only allows for eating early in the day at a semi-odd time. By myself too, but might be a pathetic excuse. It was a fried egg (190 miles — they’re from whole foods, it was as good as I could do) sauteed broccoli rabe (god how I love that...
damhnait: Phew! congratulations! here I got you a sea turtle.

damhnait: So I was just sitting at a little table outside the French place down the road which I passed on the way home from the train station and decided to stop at in order to keep working on a little list entitled “100 questions I’d ask me if I was my thesis committee” in preparation for next week. So I was there eating my snails and drinking my cabernet, because I may be poor (not for long!...
Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.– kate moss unsurprisingly promotes weight loss (via sarazucker) Wow. What a joyless cunt. Okay, that was mean. And reductive. I’m sorry. I’ll put a line through it so you know just how sorry I am. Obviously Ms. Moss is made of joy. Just a tiny, tiny amount of it. My original statement, now...
March 1 National Peanut Butter Lover's Day →
awpeeps: turtalia: (link via unsustainable) July 3: National Chocolate Wafer Day. Um, okay? I’m just slightly bummed because a. I prefer strawberry wafers and b. I was one day away from National BBQ Day, and I think we can all agree that’s a much better match for me. my birthday is bologna day. There are only 2 things in this world I simply refuse to eat and that would be one of them.

cb2's food drive discount →
when we bought a chair there last year we got this discount. It was super easy (like no strings attached, no minimum purchase, no “we’re doing a what discount?”) and nice. I’m getting this with it.
I decided to switch my radio with my tool pouch and wrenches on my belt at work (I know, *yawn*) been confused all day.
awesome website of fire →
Happy Carl Sagan Day. Thanks a billion, Carl. →
things that are good:
an attempt to make myself less crabby. yesterday on our dinner break when we weren’t hungry (due to craft services snacks), we took a chilly walk uptown for awesome cookies. A friend who is thinking of collecting a few people to buy land upstate to share asked me if I wanted in. Which I’m not sure I do but it is a pretty high compliment I think, to be included. my boss hates all...
Alice asked the Chesire Cat, who was sitting in a tree, “What road do I take?”...– Lewis Carroll (via mswhoeveryouare) (via giantevilhead) (via thenelsontwins)
TRACIE I think they might be talking about you... →
yeah, sure I guess I could just use email instead.
The question remains
amen. thenelsontwins: When I’m asked how long I want to work tonight and I say “I want to get as much done as humanly possible and not leave until they kick us out” why do you think I’m kidding? Don’t you understand that the sooner we’re done … We’re DONE and the sooner we’re done the sooner I can get out of Florida, away from you, and back home with The Strangelet? Work out of town is STILL...
