ghoulash… eh

almost halloween… drinking too much pumpkin protein, haven’t left bard all day, and getting ready to make Uchi’s Pine Needle sorbet.  heading to the theatre in a bit to watch a drama/comedic film– wish me luck, it’s been a while since i’ve been able to sit still to see a movie.  good company kept today, what else can i say? just in a wonderful mood altogether.

going to hang up my wardrobe, take a warm shower, and then head out.

enjoy the fall, and don’t be a hooligan– unless you’re with me.

xx,

enfin

lately,

in short this has been the past few days.  cat naps with trout after 4pm on thursdays.  smiles and ferocious yawns, and little tiny pink noses.  waking up all to discover its a mother-effing snow day- thus bringing a celebration in my brain.  stupid celebration got in the way of learning how to conjugate malo, malle, malui.

worked brunch on saturday, learned the drill.  met dear corey jane at the squid and whale tattoo and supported her during her first ink sesh- per usual cyndi lou did a fabulous job.  chatted the afternoon away, drank some tea, and went food shopping.

made my grandmother’s yellow curry for the ladies, and gossiped and bitched all night long.  listened to britney’s newest hit, and dougied.  it was so worth it to have a ladies night, just because i sorta forgot what they’re like and how great they make you feel.  so much stuff to be said, and smiles and laughs and pocket calls.  a group of very different girl, congregating over food, gossip, and shitty jamz.

rewind to friday night- probably my favorite night so far.  fried chicken, and snuggles, and tosh.o, and blue eyes, and a new job, and a poncho, and hugs, and rob steele.

obviously we ended the night on a good sweet note- soy creamery cherry chocolate chip. YUMMYYYY.

waking up sunday.  working brunch again- this time crazier, but just as fun- if not more.  bonded with amanda, talked some J-shore business, and then left when all was said and done.  met with sammy and got some much needed coffee and splurged on music- five records and a peter gabriel cassette for our maine adventure.  all this leading up to a walk to his car in 10 degree weather and a finale of sweeney todd.

i never realized how lucky i am until today.

i’m luckier than so many people, and i’m so happy that i am.

i like my coffee black

and i like those suddens surges of energy that come at the most unexpected times.  today was one of those days where i felt like i had enough energy to power everyone around me.  laying in bed right after my alarm went off, i thought about doldrums to be honest- nothing worthwhile, nothing inspiring, nothing of merit.  but i drained my mind of the thoughts that tend to plague me during my normal days.  but now after classes, after an intense yoga class, and while i’m on the brink of doing four hours of homework and spending the evening with my brother, i just can’t help but want to close my eyes and curl up, waiting for winter to pass- until spring comes and shines her endless sunshine on my face.  this lack of vitamin d is not what i need, nor am i in any position to be consistently tired, but that’s the routine i’m bound to start again.

hopefully today passes, hopefully the snow doesn’t hurt the innocent, and hopefully hopefully i will wake up and carpe diem.

a weekend wasted

same routine, too much coffee, too many headaches, one too many disappointments.

maybe next weekend will be better.

post scriptum: the upside is that i finally got my pumpkin protein odwalla i’ve been craving since the beginning of autumn.  & here is a bit of a treat.  click this for a free download of the tallest man on earth concert.

Mr. Darcy

i have found my newest and only muse at this time.  unfortunately, jaime oliver is married with kids, but i still find him to be so terribly cute! the way he cooks outside on an open fire, how he cans and pickles and makes his own ketchup- oh he’s just so fantastic.  maybe someday, when i’m pursuing my passion, i’ll meet someone with similarities to jaime, and then, if fate permits it, we’d get along famously.

i’m planning on doing a lot of cooking this week, so look out Vin et Grub, recipes galore tba asap.  i survived standardized testing today, actually, i’m quite confident.  i made some progress on b108, and i cleaned the kitchen and reorganized all the cabinets.  i also took a trip to the market, and picked up some food for the upcoming week.  i’m rarely excited enough to talk about what i will be cooking- but i think i’m elated tonight, so i may as well share.  tomorrow evening’s menu: seared mahi mahi wrapped in a thin layer of russet potato with brown butter and sage sauce.  monday evening: roasted stuffed tomatoes, with artichokes, chevre, and panko, served with a watercress and black cherry salad.  tuesday evening: roasted chicken, basted in champagne vinegar and aged balsamic, with tarragon, three-variety mashed potatoes, stuffing, and brownies.  wednesday evening: fagiolini in umido, and fried chicken.  thursday evening: tandoori tofu, and basmati rice.  friday evening: a trip to local, or perhaps figa/new miyake.  so excited for my week in food.  in addition, it’s obvious that i’ll be swamped in homework, and also, i’ll be baking a black plum raspberry pear pie tomorrow night.  it’ll be more like a free form tartette, but it should be wonderful nonetheless.  i’m headed to sonny’s tonight to visit with some folks, and party just a little bit.  tomorrow: so much homework, so much baking, coffee, and lots of sleep, plus a brunch date.  VERY EXCITED FOR MONDAY NIGHT @ SPACE.  DARKDARKDARK= BRIGHTBRIGHTBRIGHT.

artwalkin’

Tumblr_l2090q4ni71qbdd9oo1_400_large

drinkin’ my lager (struttin’ my swagga) & catching the last of the cooking network. i just came back from a wonderful artwalk spent with good company and warm weather. there weren’t any stand-out art shows, but it was nice still. now i’m prepping for watching chocolat or harold and maude… which appears as if its been stolen from my dvd library. a kitten is keeping me company while i listen to the shouts of my drunken neighbors and my perpetual thoughts. i’m hoping that starting tonight my luck has changed for the better. but who knows. luck always departs when you seem to need it most.
