Happy 5th Anniversary
Well, missed it by a few days, which is odd, in its way, to miss such a milestone.
Maybe with Obama firmly in charge, one of my original impulses to blog has lessened (but we must never ever drop the ball again. Not ever, else they will creep back in with their evil ways.)
The blogosphere has changed, consolidating around Facebook and/or My Space, so that individual blogs seem almost beside the point.
I'm not doing as much artwork as I was 5 years ago -- or it seems different -- or it's not painting -- or something.
I haven't been knitting in awhile -- 2 sweaters I started still need to be sewn together.
Mostly have been cooking and watching the market and my savings collapse, sometimes at the same time.
For example, am making my famous chicken leg 'n' thigh soup (roast 2 or 3 of 'em for about an hour at 375, then strip the good meat, dump bones and skin and weird meat, add rosemary, salt, pepper, a couple of carrots, celery, a half bay leaf into your favorite microwave bowl, cover with water and pan fat, nuke at 60 percent for about 45 minutes. There you have it -- strain and separate out the stock so you can refrigerate and skim the fat off -- but save it for sauteing).
And, of course, still scripting and doing artwork for my never-ending game, Darkdevil County. Next installment is nearly ready. I mean it this time.
