I wonder...

I can't quite remember where I was or what I was trying to do. It's now been over two weeks since I last worked on dissertation baby steps and now that's what I need to be doing again today. My goal is therefore to figure out what on earth I was doing before, to look through the PICA index again to see what I haven't nabbed from it yet, and then to work through Ovitt's picture listings if PICA doesn't keep me busy long enough.

In honor of C.'s birthday yesterday, we went out to eat at a really nice restaurant, inspired by a few desserts Cat fed us from their bakery a month or so ago. As often is the case in my life, I liked the appetizer and the dessert best (caramelized banana cream pie...yum). Not that the main wasn't delicious, it was, but somehow the other two stood out even more. On the subject of dairy products, this was the first time I felt créme fraiche actually had a good role to play in a dish. It rarely goes with the desserts with which it is served, but it was excellent with duck and a peanuty sauce!

I wonder how many other people I know use LJ, after last week's windfall, and nepenthe01 finding me. littleowl keeps finding

Last wonder before I go do work... maybe I should read the Melanie Rawn books. Evidently I know several fans, as I know more than one person on LJ going by sioneva handles: <lj user="sioneva"> and <lj user="sioneva88">. (Thanks to Cat for explaining where the name comes from and Google for backing her up.)
