Lush Life

*waves* Such a lovely bunch of people here. I've been lurking for a while and will likely continue to do so. I like German microphones, Irish Whiskey and short walks on the beach.

On New David Bowie, "Where Are We Now?"

We're all Absolute Beginners.

On Drynuary: What and Why

@thisisunclear As a former resident of that fine city I can assure everyone that there is no "Drynuary" in New Orleans. What there is, is CARNIVAL, January 6 until February 12th. Then y'all can dry out.

On Shared Spaces, Lie-Measurement, and the Manageable Hassle

@bocadelperro Yes! It can be only once a month! It takes financial dexterity sometimes, but keeping tidy is easier and life is far less stressful when I know that at the end of the month someone is going to come DO THE BATHROOM.

I also look at hiring a cleaner as helping the local economy and a small business, but that may in part be to assuage any lingering sense of guilt over the perception of luxury.

On Twenty Marleys and Me

You had me at "[a] thick, red man falls out of a door." This is lovely and I hope you are feeling better.

On Light-ish, Hippie-ish, Side Dish Ish/Help

All the Brussels Sprouts love here is fantastic!

In an effort to eat healthy but not bland food, I've been experimenting with vinegar and veggies.

Can't remember the specific recipe but these two have similar ideas for a zesty side dish:

Sugar Snap peas With Lemon Mint Vinaigrette

Bacon & Balsamic Glazed Snap peas

Warm balsamic over asparagus topped with a dusting of slightly melted Parmigiano-Reggiano is also yummy.

On Estate Jewelry: A Necklace That Wears Its Own Rings

The rock geek in me had a tiny titter over the Clapton necklace being auctioned by Bonham's (sorry Ginger).

Oh, how I love these posts.
