(no subject)

so, yesterday after work, i walked over to Planned Parenthood and got my drugs for the month, and my script for my thyroid meds, which is good, because i'm out. i dropped off the office rent check, and walked over to the library to meet up with Jeni.

Jeni and i in a library is just a dangerous thing. we're both book fiends, and i was taking advantage of the fact that i wasn't going to have to haul my books home on the bus, and we were both doing the "you need to read this" schtick and shoving books at each other. and we made the mistake of ending up in the cookbook section. so, yea, lots of books.

we also made the mistake of going into the really nice Harris Teeter in Cameron Village hungry, but we managed to (mostly) come out with what we went in looking for.

her friend Alan came over and we made hap's Chicken Marsala, which was divine, as per normal. her friend Walter showed up, and we sat around and BS'ed about books and movies for awhile. it's been a long time since i've sat around with that many well read folks... it was nice.

Alan left, and i called my Jeff and then realized i was falling over, so i left Jeni and Walter chatting and fell flat on my face.

which means that it's 8am and i'm awake. i think coffee is in order...

humor me...

i've been meaning to do this for awhile... if there is any reasonable chance that i might at some point end up cooking for you (so, mostly local folks, though this includes the SEA folks too), please comment and tell me if you have any allergies and severe likes or dislikes (even if you think i should know this information already). my memory is notoriously bad (i end up doing things like forgetting that shellfish and tyche don't mix at all and buying curry paste with shrimp in it; she was getting ready to taste the sauce when she thought to check the label, thankfully) and it would be nice to have all of this sort of stuff in one place where i can look it up and remind myself when having people over or cooking for folks. it'll sound stupid, but i have no food allergies, and so i have a horrible habit of forgetting that other people do, even ones that i've been cooking around for months.

thank you. =)
