fiery like the devil [juil. 22e, 2007|11:18 pm]
Liene From the Internet
Maybe if I start writing oddball little posts, I can trick myself into informing my Internet Friends what is going on in my life in a serious way! Because these Serious Things, they are not lacking by any means. But that'll come later.

There is something about prolonged absences from LJ that make you think that the next thing you write, the Return, has to be something big and crazy and informative and well-thought-out. Phooey to that. The nutshell version? Life is good, except for the irritating parts. Comme d'habitude.

So I was on Amazon today, lusting after and investigating cookbooks. Like you do. And I notice that one of the SIPs for the Real Food Daily cookbook is "large howl." Thinking this must be a mistake, I click it, and notice that indeed, many other cookbooks also call for putting ingredients in a "large howl." But it gets better.

Current cat-sighting count since I moved into the B&B one week ago (not counting the ones that live next to the Staircase From Hell):
3 meandering about
7 in or right next to the newly-harvested wheatfield

There was something else crawling about in there last night, too; I wanted to say some sort of round but pointy animal (I didn't get a great look), like a hedgehog?, but this is clearly absurd and it was surely just a ginormous Field Rat, rotund from its feast of wheatfield cats.

Is it ok that I WANT to cook with Hell Peppers?

I dunno, something about that just entices me.

And I agree on the LJ absence thing... it feels like if you dont write for a few weeks, or a month, you have to come up with something spectacular to win back your audience. Then I realize that this is my blog. And then I sign in relief.

Is that cookbook somehow related to the restaurant? Because I totally ate there a month ago. It was good. My friend works there. The end.

P.S. Are you still in France?

Re: RFD?

Indeed it is! (I am impressed that you know someone that works there.)

And indeed I am. No longer au pairing, but here for another month, and then if I get my act together, in Latvia for a bit.

Re: RFD?

Sweet! (the latvia part, that is).

Actually, the friend I know there is moving to Seattle soon, to become a nutritionist. Are you coming back to the PNW soon? Because I think you two would really like each other. Just ask to see her student films and you'll see how cool she is.

Re: RFD?

Seattle! Nutritionist! Is she going to Bastyr by chance? (I have to ask.)

The PNW will see me again:
- in August?, if the current situation does not improve
- in late September/early October if things straighten out exactly how I want them to.

Regardless, I'll only be there for a few weeks, and then I'm moving to Massachusetts. I can still be a Seattle reference, but I will be far away for the foreseeable future.
