Sick Temporarily

I am also sick. I have a horrible hacking cough and dizzyness. I hate being sick but it seems I am inevitably sick for Halloween, New Years and Early March sometime. Sometimes I wonder if it has to do with going out at night with friends in enclosed places (bars, family events, shopping, etc) in the winter where everyone else is sick. The less I go out, the less I get sick.

On the uplifting note I went to a primary care doctor for the first time in years, like 8 years I think. They did complete blood work and I look pretty normal. At least everything was in normal range so I guess my pretty good diet works despite the random issues I have had in the past.

Basra Escaped From His Pen


He got out and shut off his heater. I tried to explain to him how getting out was stupid and there was no way to go outside no matter how many boundaries he overcame as it is freezing out. Plus I jist don't think he would fair well on the stairs. He just wasn't having it.

Wedding at the Garret Club


We attended a wedding at the Garret Club on Cleveland Ave for one of (e:Terry)'s clients. The food was amazing and we had a great time with the people we met. The event was black tie so we rented tuxes. (e:Terry) looked so handsome in his tux.

Retina Display Macbook Pro 15 Inch


I got my new work computer on Friday at 4:30. It requires a lot of setup but the hardware is amazing including the screen. I am kind of mad about an ordering snafu where I grabbed the one without the discrete graphics card for the same price as the one with it. If it was my personal laptop and/or the purchase and setup process at work was faster, I would definitely return it. But I don't want to end up waiting another month and it seems so complicated. Maybe I should just write to apple and see what they can do.

Golden King Crab and Artichoke Soup


I took some of the extra scraps from the new years crab bag and made myself some artichoke heart soup.

I started with veggie bullion, and added frozen artichoke hearts, corn and pees along with some scallops, a fee small shrimp and a few slices of squid. I cooked this for a while with some butter and some olive oil. Then I aded some clear mung bean noodles and the crab.

I let it simmer till the crab was completely thawed and then covered and let it sit for about 20 minutes while I lifted weights and the noodles absorbed the juice.

It was probably the best soup I have ever had in my life. The crab was exceptionally sweet and the artichoke hearts balanced it out perfectly.

Working Out

I have been lifting weights at home. At this rate I should look good by summer, better than the skinny-fat I was before. Not half as hot as (e:joe) though, maybe he will post him flexing if you are lucky.

Christmas Eve


All out of order but here are some pics from Christmas Eve at my aunt and uncles house. The food was amazing. Christmas Eve and New Years Eve are pretty much my favorite holidays foodwise. Our family celebrates it all seafood style. I barely got any pics of all the delicious food because I was so hungry I couldn't wait to eat. I ate so much fried shrimp I could barely move by the end.

Golden King Crab For New Years

Golden King Crab - Lithodes aequispinus

I would not wanted to have met this king crab when he was creeping across the bottom of the ocean.

Check out the size of these claws... and I don't have small hands.

I get them at Exclusively Alaskan Good in Eden like every year. The store seems to be less stocked than before and its cash only now but the crab still seems pretty amazing compared to anywhere else I have bought it.

Christmas Morning


Had a great Christmas morning, first at home with (e:joe) and (e:terry) and then afterwards at my mom's. I got some great kitchen stuff and serving wear including a whole leg of procuitto from (e:terry) which is like a dream come true. (e:mike) liked his unicorn. We even manages to turn the wrapping into a crown.

Wrapping Gifts

I went all out with paper cutting and the glue gun this year. This is going to make (e:mike) crazy because:

A. my gifts are wrapped better unless he really steps it up.

B. He isn't going to want to open the gifts because it will destroy the wrapping.

hahaha
