... being more restrictive can be a challenge.
Today I am a master of the obvious.
1. Setting the Stage
While I love Ms. S. dearly, she's not always the easiest person to cook for. Vegetarian ... can do. Vegan except for occasiona... Read more
Yesterday a.m. was productive for me in terms of academic writing. Wednesday afternoon Ms. S. and I took in part of our 'rotation' before her afternoon/evening shift. While she was at work I prepared dinner for myself, did some more work, and to... Read more
We have two cats, A & E. After Ms. S.'s cat B went missing, August of 2011, we held off a bit, hoping he would return, mourning, and so on; but then Ms. S. really felt like the apartment needed a feline manager, and from the Humane Society we go... Read more
I need to go to the store later and get some more oats, my recent breakfast and snack of choice (just soaked in a little milk with nuts and berries, and served cold? Maybe a splash of maple syrup? Kind of addictive) Today, a little fall-like and... Read more
I love pudding.
To post an entire blog about pudding and my thoughts and feelings about it would take a while. And I'm lazy. But to summarize:
 I ate store-bought pudding cups on occasion as a kid (vanilla, chocolate, butterscotch).... Read more
At least when they fall on the first of the month.
What to do on a Monday on the first of the month? Pay bills. Take measurements.
With Ms. S.'s aid the latter was accomplished.
N: 16 (-0.5)
A: 12 (-1)
W: 35 (-2.5)
H: 42.5 (... Read more

It's Saturday afternoon, heading toward evening, and outside it's been a gray, gray sort of day, but one that refuses to rain or blow wind. We might go shopping: we have no tempeh in the fridge.

Neither the potato-lentil "creme" nor the pizza mentioned yesterday were made. Ms. S. returned home at the expected time and we got a little television in before bed. Schedules can be busy, packed, hectic, and disjointed. They skew; they do not ... Read more
Wednesdays Ms. S. works what are for her 'weird' hours, 4-11pm. She gets lunch in the afternoon but needs a real 'dinner' when she gets home; she'll be up for many more hours, so it's not as if she'll get home, eat a big meal, and then sleep on ... Read more
Last summer we moved across a state from Ms. S's school location to her hometown and my place of employment. She brought the furniture, I brought the mojo, and together we filled in the blanks. About that time we were watching 'Mad Men' (the fir... Read more
Ms. S. recently dubbed me the King of Soups. It's possible that she was exaggerating; it's possible that I misremember exactly what she said. But hyperbole or not, it's true that soups have recently been "my thing."
