Wrote this long thing about my 9/11/2001 but I’m not in the mood yet to post it. Maybe next year?
That’s all I’ll say on the topic to spare you the 9/11 overload.
Been prepping for another lecture; this one I’m giving downtown in front of a lotta US attorneys tomorrow. Should really post somea the videos when I’m done but then I figured it’d just put you to sleep.
HG and I went on two dates recently, both at nice local taverns – PJ Clarke’s and PD O’Hurley’s. No particular reason, the weather’s just cooled down enough so that going outside is bearable. Reminded us of when we were still dating. New York City’s a bit wasted on us since we’re so blase to it. Trying to fight that.
Dunno if I ever told you, but I don’t cook in the summertime. Almost not at all. Too hot.
But the weather’s cooled down lots so I made some mussels in a white wine reduction – was trying to recreate a dish we both had and enjoyed on onea our dates.
It was good, not great. Too much alcohol left in the pot gave it a bit too much sting in the backa the throat. Did reduce down the sauce after we had all of the mussels the next day; poured it on some angel hair pasta and it was killer.
Will have to make more soon. For now, though, gotta make a Powerpoint presentation. Not nearly as much fun.
Location: the desk, working
Music: just different faces, different names, get me out of here
