Potential Menu for a meal soon:

butternut squash puree w/ leafys and crunchies and cheezies (whee)

something seafood on a stick wrapped in bacon

Lemon Sorbet

main entree:

Steak au Poivre
Mac & Cheese
Steamed asparagus, tossed with lemon wedges and salt&pepper before plating

Insert Palate cleanser here

Dessert:
Peach pocket pies, glazed with heavy cream and caramelized sugar w/ vanilla ice cream

finish with perhaps a turkish coffee and hookah? Or perhaps just matcha?


There we go.. what does everyome think? Got an idea for the second palate cleanser? Or new ideas overall? The goal is to prepare as much of this from scratch as cheaply as possible, and do it in advance, so that I'm able to entertain at the same time.

Hehe.. I make my friends FAT. Because I love them. Heheh... but dontcha come cranky to me after you've had a great meal, then get bishy with me about making you gain five pounds... bish!

Alright, nobody reads this dreck anymore, because I'm focusing more on my memoirs, cookbook, CAD, hacking things, shit like that. I use twitter mostly: http://twitter.com/krabumple Why? Because all I do can be described in under 140 characters.

Or, I'll shove photos over to http://evilstar.net, which is getting decent attention these days, if not from the HUGE amount of spam on the forums. I leave it. I'm not really caring about it.

Overall, I spend some time getting 'laid off' of jobs, napping, and programming, too. It's not so bad. Might be able to work part time after roommate helps with rent a bit... otherwise, I make little electronic things to sell, listen to BBC radio, laugh, cry, make bad choices, make good ones.. you know the story. M left, don't much know why, but it was confusing and so what? Enlightenment may come from letting your thoughts flow like water over a bed of smooth and rough rocks, always moving forward, and realising that.. the real answers may never, ever come, and be alright with that. I'm okay with that these days.

Water always wins?

Nevermind all that, Christmas happened and for the first time, I got everything on my list:

1. Chocolate
2. Two used coffee cups from my mother's house
3. A Weller 40w adjustable soldering iron, a HUGE step up from the firestarters I've been using. Here be my new baby:



And I'll be adding these in the next coupla weeks: I'll be adding the oscilloscope:



And a bench power supply, kinda looks like this, but DIY'd into an old computer case.



And finally, a fucking real workbench. Nevermind it's roughly 2x2.

It's a long walk to the gallows
It's a small step to swing free
The crying in the tower
For my conspirators and me
Gunpowder and modem
And a dream of liberty
And then they'll tell you, 'Don't try this at home'.

I haven't been out of bed for two days. I'm not proud.

Had a nice job, amazing girlfriend, all that. It was coming together- book collaborations, dinner parties, all that.

Then, within 72 hours, I lost it all. I don't know. I spent the next three days knocked out of my head on Xanax (thanks, doc!) and now its just a steady diet of rice and water. Mood stabilizers, sedatives, the usual "chris loses it" mix. I'm still there.

My Mac and DSL modem both broke.that's where I've been.

Jeez, I was going to be happy for this post. But its all a tad depressing. It all works out, though.

Best,

Chris

Ps. I don't know if it was for me. No future, born to lose!

I haven't ever gone this long before.. The new job is hard to adjust to, school is on- anatomy, accounting and ethics. Oye! And, I am happy to say I'm with the most lovely lady- its an honor. And, juggling the words for a couple books and arduino based projects.. Busy! But like the man said- don't hang around if you can't take it.
