Late on the Parade

I'm a little late to have discovered this, but one of the nicest things occurs over at HTML Giant (or rather occurred in January and I missed it). Thanks Mike Young! You are a gem.

Also meant to update this a while ago, but life, you know...

Went to the hot springs last weekend with a cadre of poet-types. It was so nice. Hot, hot puddles & a cool breeze, blue skies. This after the best gyro I've had in the states. Still can't find one that's anything like what I had in Greece (It'd be so nice to discover a gyro place that put french fries in their gyro.)

Either way, these things make the list of Boise good times.

Entry 13: Gyros from Bosnian Express.
Entry 14: Hot springs.

Sometimes, life can be so good.

Mama Said

& so I believed her. She was an honest lady. I'd say it's a case of the Mondays, but baby it's Tuesday & I can't get it together.

Thankfully, I got 40 minutes left on the clock, every intention of stopping off at the Boise Co-op (ENTRY #12), to pick up New Belgium's TRIPPEL (the beer which I have recently become obsessed with). It's not a cheap beer, but I drink slow at home & it is delish...

Then I'm going to make this thing I've been thinking about all morning. Battered & pan fried sweet potatoes, with sweet chili sauce.

And then to read. And read. And read. For not my thesis (as I have successfully defended) but for my classes (which have fallen a bit by the wayside due to thesis... & mental exhaustion).

Thank god for good food & good beer.
