Subject:Food & Brian
Time:09:52 pm
It all began as Danielle's idea, and, like most of her ideas ("Wow, it's your birthdays!"), it's come to work out genius-ly. Thursday nights are now our "nothing-out-of-a-box," home-cooking nights. It began with our great stir-fry adventure (seriously more screaming than you could ever imagine), and tonight it was lasagna, garlic bread, and a caeser salad. Standard fare, but still amazing. You really can taste the love. It tastes like delicious carbs.

For those of you who don't live in the house (all one of you), we have a message board in our "dining room" that an old photo of Brian has lived on for most of the year. Brian, as you know, is terribly chatty. Mostly Brian says things like, "RENT DUE IN 6 DAYS!!!" But today...




I'm thinking I might make this a big daily thing... The Big... Daily... Brian?

This makes me think there's a 40 year old virgin somewhere out there whose new girlfriend is making him sell off all his little friends. And it makes me kind of sad.

Subject:Weekend Recap
Time:11:46 pm
I have a chem midterm tomorrow, so, like clockwork, here I am...

Saw the Getty for the first time yesterday with Brian, Michelle, and Sonny (I don't know why I write like you guys aren't the only people who read this). Happy to finally see Ensor's Christ's Entry into Brussels in person. Had lunch at a Chinese place on the Promenade in Santa Monica. Watched some fun street performers:




Then today, driving home from "studying" at Camino Real...



Music Notes:
America always makes me think of my old O-Chem lab TA, which in turn makes me think of O-Chem lab. Thinking of O-Chem lab reminds me of when we had to work with triethylene glycol, which had huge labels all over the bottle stating "REPRODUCTIVE HAZARD!!" Then I remember thinking as I spilled it on my hands, "Oh, shit, three-headed babies..." So America makes me think of my future multi-headed children. Thanks, America, thanks a lot.

This will now be my food journal, a la momomoogie. Hopefully this will encourage me to cut out the cold cereal for dinner business...



Chicken Breasts with Blueberries




Mushroom Couscous


...So I'm still new to all this cooking business. Tonight, for instance, I learned that when they say "frozen blueberries," they probably mean "frozen blueberries" (the fresh blueberries began to split pretty early into sauce-making process, thus the color of my sauce). Also, I forgot to add the vinegar. And while we're at it, I also used the wrong kind of mustard...

Confessions aside, the dish didn't turn out too bad. But I can see this recipe being added to the ever-growing list of Recipes I Now Know How to Make But Have No Desire of Ever Recreating, along with the Apricot-Glazed Squash.

Another thing I learned: if you want to feel really good about what you've just cooked, have Michelle try some. Also goes for insanely bad outfits, right, Leslie? :)

Music Notes:
Takin' my cue from Blueprint magazine recommending Arcade Fire's Funeral for light dinner party music, I am recommending Mickey Avalon's self-titled as relaxing background music for this dish.

Subject:It's A Pear
Time:01:06 am



...I was too lazy last night to walk my Asian pear all the way to the kitchen to wash it, so I thought I'd just pop into the bathroom and wash it there.

The pear didn't even make it to the sink. *sigh*

And just so you know, fruit dropped into toilets splashes like you would not believe.

Subject:Ten Things That Give Me A Little Moment of Joy
Time:04:52 pm
Watching a pink pre-sunset summer sky from a shady, breezy backyard...

Big, glossy spreads of those ridiculous and incredible haute couture evening gowns in Vogue...

Previews before movies...

Fridays...

Snail mail...

Hearing even just the intro to Mariah Carey's "Always Be My Baby"...

The word "glass"...

Songs that make you feel like the sun is shining, even if it's midnight ("Oogum Boogum Song," I'm looking at you)...

Saying the same thing at the same time as someone else...

Lastly, Savion...




I don't even have 5 friends to tag, so I'll list 4 friends and 1 that I wish was a username (it might even be): uhbiteme, rocketsoul, baker21, satou_sei, iambigfoot.

Music Notes:
If I could have had an 11th thing, it would be the band name Rockformation Diskokugel. SO...GOOD... I might even cross "Fridays" off to make room...
