How best to unwind..

0

Today was a bit of a pain in the ass. Mostly because I'm a NYC kitchen boy singing the "holey shit does retail suck" blues, but also because I truly am the only one who gets shit done. Be that as it may, the day is done and I've unlocked the best way to unwind:

That is to say, Sea Shanties and a

Roasted some lamb for my birthday this last weekend. That along with finally cracking open a whiskey I bought in Ireland, I'd say it was a success ^_^

Fall seems to be slowly approaching the South... feels a bit weird to not be enjoying it as I would be in the North. That doesn't mean I won't be taking advantage of the things I'm afforded down here though. Been looking up state parks in which to spend many weekends camping and such, etc.

I've also got a new batch...

This past Saturday was the annual 24Hr Comic Day. The challenge is to create and complete full comic that's at least 24pgs long in 24hrs. Seeing as I can't draw, I tried to use that to my advantage. This was pretty difficult to do even with only focusing on it, and I am pretty proud that I was able to succeed this year...

Just a short little diddy about what i've been up to..

It's already been almost 2months since I've moved from NYC back to my hometown in Florida. The time has flown by it feels like, what with all the family grill outs, fishing, theme park visits, and hanging out with old friends. I've yet to get a job, or brew beer...

Sooooo after 4 years of cooking professionally I finally cut myself bad enough to get stitches. Hurrah(?)!

While making family meal (it was going to be stew!) my newly sharpened knife went right through what I was cutting down and right into my hand.. I walked over the sink right away, cleaned it, put pressure on it and asked someone to get a manager. I...

omg omg owwwww..Jack lost his shadow? hope it heals fast.
My bf just got this Kyocera ceramic knife pair as a gift and i'm not allowed to even touch them frown

Looks painful. The doctors probably see these cuts pretty often, but just looking at it yours looks like it's in an unusual spot to me. Maybe I'm just not getting the angles and everything from the picture though.

The rain/snow is steadily falling outside my window, a fake fireplace pops and crackles on my tv, and i've got to head off to work in about 30mins. I don't particularly want to leave this nice, cozy scene but it must be done. It is the holiday season after all and I must be able to afford gifts haha

Winter is already...

It didn't take long, I'm already (re)re-obsessed with the River Cottage series.. As I spent the day cleaning the apartment to get ready for the holidays I had the show on constant loop in the background. Seems to act as a constant reminder of what I'd like to shoot for, which keeps me happy any inspired.

Time already seems flying by...

I never really did love driving, but I did come from FL.. everything seemed to be 30-45mins away by car regardless of how far it actually was in miles. I'm sure it'll take a bit getting used to having to commute places again, but prolly not all that long heh.

The main reason I want to get out of the city is to have some land. The desire has been building for a long time and as I get older it only seems to grow in intensity. Time to settle down, and all that. Course, a huge part of it all is where to do it. I love the weather up here, but all my family is back south. hrummph.

Figured I'd wish a happee happee on here while you still have the balloon still up! tongue

October! The weather has finally started to feel like the fall, and I'm already taking full advantage of it. With the summer heat gone, I'm finally able to kick my homebrewing back into full gear. I've already got my summer mead bottled up after a few months of fermenting to age, and am waiting for the imperial stout to be ready just...
