this post, i think, is little more than an aimless update on some pleasant things:
i had an absolutely lovely night last night. it started with a little leftover filet mignon, melt-in-your mouth delicious and flecked with peppercorns. it continued with whiskey and mint and god knows how many meyer lemons. it continued with harpoon crystal wheat, which as of yesterday is my new favorite beer, and which i just learned to my sorrow is a limited edition only available through september. go ahead, break my heart, harpoon. break my heart.
i’ve had some absolutely delightful things to drink lately. molly and i made this wonderful cucumber water with mint and gin a couple weeks ago, and we’re eager to try it with basil or rosemary instead of mint. recently i also became acquainted with spanish coffee, which, in addition to coffee, involves rum, kahlua, cinnamon, sugar, and plenty of fresh whipped cream on top.
lily allen continues to impress me. i know i’m about a year late, but i’ve really been enjoying “not fair” and “22.” also, i just discovered air traffic last week. it was a weekend morning and i was dozing in dan’s bed while he was in the shower, and all of a sudden, somewhere between nightmare of you and kay kay and his weathered underground, i heard this extraordinary, heavenly SOMETHING. absolutely angelic.
i’m craving this for dinner. i don’t have any chard, so it will necessitate a trip to the grocery store. which will tempt me with kettle chips. worse things have happened.
