From: "Never Again", which I hope Ms. S. and I will watch this evening.
Below: dough, links, and Schiller.
A couple days ago I made us individual pizzas, as I am wont to do. I made dough for four servings, but we each had only ... Read more
The remains of Ms. S.'s red grapes now rest under low heat in the oven as they turn to raisins. I should turn them.
Saturday afternoon/evening it was, first, "Weeds", a first season episode of 'Millennium'. We g... Read more
I need to return to healthy habits.
Tuesday was Lincoln's birthday and Mardi Gras; as I'm neither a Republican nor a Catholic it's not really the case that either 'event' was of deep significance to me, though as a student of Americ... Read more
Ms. S.'s family -- parents -- were due to arrive mid-afternoon for a brunch themed dinner party.
In the afternoon.
Waffles, steak & eggs, omelets and frittatas, mimosas ... did I mention waffles? Two kinds: my standar... Read more
Up at a decent time; the briefest of breakfasts, a lunch on the town, afternoon treats, dinner, and more.
Back briefly to Tuesday:
A. "Lincoln" -- the best and in a way least manipulative Spielberg I've seen in years, an... Read more
Tuesday was spent splurging on Lincoln, cheap beer, and milk chocolate. Neither Ms. S. nor I has much desire left for any of those three at this point.
A comment on the 'chocolate':  it felt as if it made my heart race, and  I woke up... Read more
What happened, what's happening, and what will happen this rainy Tuesday in February.
I. Breakfast and Shopping
I had to go to the store again today to pick up a few items. The bill was a bit higher than I'd planned for.

Last night we watched the "Musings of a Cigarette Smoking Man", a highly entertaining episode of 'The X-Files', the contents of which relate only problematically to established 'canon'. But it's a fun, fun episode.
Fun is what 'Millennium' ... Read more
"[...] Only it's being done with silicone, collagen, and a well-placed scalpel.
A summary, some links, and what's cooking.

A while back I bought a quart each of half-and-half and heavy cream. The former was for panna cotta; with the latter I planned on making ice cream. But that event came and went, and I did use about half the half-and-half in a rather tasty (and r... Read more
It's a low-key sort of day. Ms. S. is at work, the cat-demons sleep, I watched the end of season 2 of 'Haven' (and first episode of season 3), and before Ms. S. went to work we watched episodes 3 of 'Millennium' and 'The X-Files' respectively. N... Read more
Or, rather, a scanner put to use again.
When I moved here several years ago I bought a cheap -- low in price and quality -- Epson printer-scanner from one of the local stores. It is a color inkjet, meaning that Epson makes their money on th... Read more

Awoke early, wrote, cleaned, watched some sports.
I'm attempting the cats-hate-citrus approach to keeping the cats from pawing the furniture at 4 or 5 in the morning to wake me up. And by cats I mean one cat, and by one cat I mean A... Read more
