I signed up for NaBloPoMo in November. I posted on November 1, and then not another post until now. Here’s hoping 2014 is interesting enough to post more often, eh? I’m not one for resolutions, really, but living a more interesting life seems a good goal to have.

Before the movie started, the lady next to me at the 2:30 showing of Gravity griped that the fully-reclining, totally cushioned seats in our theater weren’t comfortable (apparently, they aren’t vertical enough). And the cup holder was too big. The fake butter on her popcorn wasn’t sufficiently buttery.

Man, I love cranky old ladies.

Darcy thinks choosing the right bind off is crucial to the success of every project.


So much deliciousness in this week’s share.


Here’s what I got: carrots, purple basil (smells amazing), sugar snap peas, corn, eggs, zucchini, eggplant, cucumbers, Boston lettuce, and cherries. Dinner tonight is going to be a salad. Lunch tomorrow is going to be a mozzarella-basil-tomato salad if I can remember to pick up a tomato from the cart by my office in the morning.

ETA: best salad ever

I reckon George Orwell knows a thing or two about tea. I especially like:

  • Anyone who has used that comforting phrase ‘a nice cup of tea’ invariably means Indian tea.
  • I maintain that one strong cup of tea is better than twenty weak ones.
  • Tenthly, one should pour tea into the cup first.



The first of many, I suspect.

ElBloombito: DOMA estan dead muerte. Mucho pride weeko!.

My CSA warned us that our shares (well, technically, my half-share) would be a bit light at the start of the summer.


Behold, week three: chard, arugula, spinach, red leaf lettuce, half a head of cabbage, cilantro, a huge bunch of dill, radishes, onions, zucchini, and eggs.

If this is “light”, I’m going to be inundated by August. Please oh PLEASE have good tomatoes.

Tonight, I plan some recipes!
