my new post is up at swapatorium.
this month we took the pepsi challenge to see if anyone could tell the difference between a retro recipe and a semi homemade one.
wed was wonderful, my little jalapeño poppers! i joined leff on his morning trip to ballard so i could pick up some library books and, guess what! there was one pain au chocolat still left at verite/royale! and it was miiiiiiiine!!
other than spending a lot of my day laughing hysterically at things that are not worth discussing, i read melissa bank's new to me the wonder spot in its entirety. i enjoyed it just as much as the girl's guide to hunting and fishing.
thursday night was, of course, the james watson lecture at pacsci with m and n.
what an awful photo! why exactly was he backlit?
anyway, i was unable to hear a lot of what was said because of the poor audio but seattlest has a nice little recap that's worth reading.
in all honesty, i was also distracted by the free container of brownie bites from metro market that was in my bag.
the whole time i kept thinking "i have a container full of brownie bites in my bag at a james watson lecture!" and it was almost as bad as the pez incident on "seinfeld".
anyway, it was a great night at the museum
which was followed by dinner at mcmenamins.
today i'm still debating about the gruff rhys show at the croc but the rest of the weekend seems to be chock full of busy. highlights at eleven, etc. see you monday!
