Chicago named most stressful city in the US. YES. A nigh on completely meaningless accolade, but it's hard not to try it on, like a sweater. Some parts fit.
Today's idea for something that's already been done I'm sure: A warm, fuzzy--anti-Palahni*k/non-"Guts", as it were--anthology of funny, sweet and serendipitous things that happened because of masturbation mishaps. I knocked over that small wooden box and there were the keys I thought I had lost! (par example)
More culinary leftovers successes mumblemumble see last entry: tuna/potato croquettes. It might have been tuna/potato hash, given my patience level (that is the diff twixt hash/patties; one's willingness/patience to maintain preformed shapes of things, even after they hit the oil), but they worked great - just scooped mixture (eggs, tuna, leftover potato, spices, a lil flour) with ice cream scoop right into the oil and created 8 very discreet and crisp, not too stodgy patties. They really needed something cucumber-/dill-y, raita or tsaziki, on top, but still. Good. Also good? Blondies with mini chocolate chips, made with too many chips and too much brown sugar, I think, but I was suddenly incredibly impatient (note theme) about the hard rock of sugar I had to work with and I microwaved it with too much water and suddenly had...syrup. It worked, though, with the melted butter the recipe required--they are rather toffee-like. More leftover follies TK.
Mom met Obama! We are waiting for the photographic evidence. It is so exciting.
