So yesterday TRIMP, some friends of his and I all went to nextfest in Millenium Park. I had to Google it because I had no idea what it was. Technology. Lots of new technology. Including this odd car/wheelchair thing from Toyota. The video was a travesty. The concept is not a bad one, and I could see it used for the paraplegic, but not for those whose legs work just fine. The idea is you drive this thing on the streets. In Chicago this is an accident just waiting to happen. The snark factor at this event was extremely high.
After this, TRIMP and I went to my place and I made lasagna. It was disaster lasagna. The noodles stuck together when I boiled them. I didn't put it in the baking pan in the right order. I ran out of the sauce. The beauty of lasagna is, it's pretty hard to truly fuck it up. It tasted great. And now I have left-overs for the week. Next week I'll make stuffed pasta shells.
I finally have the Halloween costume figured out. And no, I won't tell you. Some people already know, but as I am going to a party and I want it to be a surprise.
My folks are in the wilds of New Mexico again. I am suitably jealous. I wish I could be there, it's soooooo pretty out there. And quiet. You can see the stars. Peaceful. Every time I go I enjoy it. Every time I have to leave and come home I'm a little sad. For some reason, food tastes better out there. I can't explain it. I cook the same stuff there that I make here, and it tastes better there. It's not fair.
One of these days, I'll figure out how to get photos up on this site, and I can show you some of the things I talk about. I also need a camera so this could take awhile.
