I need to return to healthy habits. I. 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

Up at a decent time; the briefest of breakfasts, a lunch on the town, afternoon treats, dinner, and more. I. Movies 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': [1] it felt as if it made my heart race, and [2] I woke up... Read more

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. I. Short Saturday notes: 1. Caught up *mostly* with season 5 of 'Fringe'; 4 episodes to go. 2. Caug... Read more

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

Awoke early, wrote, cleaned, watched some sports. I. 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
