Retro Memories

Walked past a club in Greenwich and was pleasantly surprised to find Sting wafting out, instead of the usual drone-y music.



Such a perfect song.

Quadratic Splines

This is exactly what I had in mind ages ago when I was hunting for a low work table. And it is available in a million different colour combinations. Including an orange and black gradient spectrum.

But the price tag is $4000+. Apparently there will be a 10% discount after Christmas. Fat difference that would make to the price. That's costlier than a lower end used car. Maybe I should keep my eyes peeled for discarded table tops on pavements, paint them orange and black and hinge them together into a revolving set...

This post should really be categorized as Impracticality+++ in every way.

Even the posters agree

No subconscious messaging here.

Murderous thoughts in Albany.

What I would very much like to do right now is to get off this train and personally strangle everyone, who is chugging on their fags on the platform, to a bloody, airless, suffocating and gruesome death... and finish off by stomping on their cancer sticks.

The cigarette smoke is seeping through the insulation of the windows on the train and making me think of those precise adjectives.

Why doesn't the train move and leave these nutcases behind already??

The station reminds me of this completely delusional storyline in that crazy series, "Spooks" (known here as MI-5) where everyone (who didn't get themselves fried in a kitchen fryer) and their aunt spent most of the season dropping references to something called "Albany". I think I never got to know what it actually was, probably because the plot was so convoluted, it made no sense... and of course I was watching in 15 minutes per weekend sections.

I give up on anything that gives me a logic nightmare when watched in 15 min sections every weekend (or sometimes fortnight). Either that or it should meld gracefully into whatever other 15 minute-section-of-something I am watching.

Arrgh. Slow is the Camera

I have the Nexus One. Which is nice. But its camera speed is from the paleolithic ages. Well, I think things might actually have been faster back then since they always had to outrun some wild beast or other; forget standing there and trying to shoot a honey badger with a Nexus one.

It takes such an E.T.E.R.N.I.T.Y for the camera to fuss through and get ready to finally take shot. Fast moving targets are a complete impossibility.

For instance, I just saw the creepiest life-size nativity scene right in the middle of nowhere somewhere in the middle of NY state, intentionally placed (I am sure) to appeal to the Godless heathen who take the train.

Well, this Godless heathen was unable to take a shot and share the creepinessl! No thanks to slow slow slow camera technology from Nexus One.

Arrrrgh.

Savoy Stir Fry!

I made something close to perfection after a million unintentional stews. Not that I hate stews. I love stews and soups but still the lack of moisture control in my recent cooking was starting to annoy me.

image
Savoy Cabbage
Yellow peppers
Jalapeños and HOT chillies - a very generous gift from (e:Terry)'s wonderful chillie plants
Roasted caramelized tomatoes
Caramelized onions
Ginger
My own spice mix with a cardamom shot. (I need to figure out how I made this batch, it's so good and I have no idea what I put in because I made it in a very distracted way over a week).
Red peppers
Zucchini
Turmeric powder

All stir-fried in a tsp extra virgin olive oil - (e:Paul), that oil rocks. I am tempted to buy that bottle off you!!
