Cookery adventures!

What is your favorite exotic food or meal to make? I had the advantage of a gourmet-cook mother who liked to make food more interesting than standard American fare. When we went out to restaurants, most often they were likewise not common American places. It was inevitable I would develop somewhat... Sign in to see full entry.

When you wake up at 3 am...

...and your tummy is crying out for a little something, and no matter how sleepy you are, the hongries are not going to let you sleep... What do you eat? A peanut butter sandwich? A bowl of soup? A couple of eggs? This time, for me, it's a bowl of soup--chicken noodle, eaten in the comfy chair with... Sign in to see full entry.

oops

So, I didn't notice until I went to unbutton my shirt that I'd been wearing it inside out all day. It was a going-out day, too, involving a lot of public contact. Good thing I have traded in embarrassment for the ability to laugh at myself. I read of a 92 year old woman who used her card at an ATM... Sign in to see full entry.

Your favorite exotic fruit...?

Now and then, I am tempted to try some of the strange and unfamiliar items on offer at the grocery store. Some have been disappointing, none have been awful... but I have a taste for dragonfruit!

Best and deepest films...

Watched David Lean's DOCTOR ZHIVAGO today, and now I am wondering some things. This was made in 1965. What movies in the decades since have been as powerful, reached as deep into the heart and gut as this one? LITTLE BIG MAN (1970) did it. Branaugh's HENRY V is nearly there. There have been quite a... Sign in to see full entry.

What did they say...?

Have you ever heard a phrase or a statement that suddenly shifted your path in life? Received a piece of advice that has stayed with you all through the years? Maybe it was a re-frame of some truth you'd been carrying around sideways...? Sign in to see full entry.

nemesis: food

What is your food nemesis? The thing you most often don't resist, that does you no good service while it makes your mouth happy? Mine...? Buttered toast especially with honey. A variation would be buttered waffle with maple syrup. (Talking real maple syrup, here. No other kind is worth putting in my... Sign in to see full entry.

Music of Childhood

I've just inherited my father's record collection, and the slightly archaic device on which to play them. In fact, I was thinking sadly only a couple of weeks back about how much of the music I grew up with--ethnic and folk--simply isn't played anymore, and that I could only hear, distantly, the...
