Special Sauce

A mish-mash of twisted thoughts from a fevered ego. Updated when the spirit moves me, contents vary and may have settled during shipping. Do not open towards eyes. Caution: Ingestion of Special Sauce may cause hair loss, halitosis, and a burning sensation while urinating.

Is it June already?

So here's what's going on in the casa de no internet.

Work: I still find my job interesting, though some days I really get a lot crazed. There's a lot of snark inside, but I can't let it all out lest someone rabbit trails their way back to me through the incomprable C's site. (She was mentioned in the paper this weekend, don'tchya know.) With my luck, I'll bitch about someone, and they'll find out, and I'll be on the shit list. Suffice to say, there are daily challenges, and some people amaze me that they can even manage to get dressed and FIND the giganto mega hospital on a daily basis.

G. Monkey: One day at a time.

P: Is a huge, adorable ball of dorkiness. I wouldn't have him any other way. But if he'd stop blowing his nose on items that aren't kleenex, it'd make my life happier (and his laundry less messy). (No, he doesn't use anything of mine, and no, I don't do his laundry, but ew.)

Ma/Pa: The same. Ma's sister and her hub are down for a few days. Life is swell.

Odie: The cheapest man alive bought me a beer at the belv this weekend. I nearly collapsed from shock. Also, he's becoming a redneck. His long-dormant goober genes are springing forth anew, and it is both frightening and amusing as hell.

Food: Strawberries are in season, and this makes me extra happy. Also- I recommend bringing this to a summer picnic:

Bacon & Egg salad (which sounds really creepy, but isn't.)

1 1/4 cups lentils, rinsed
4 hard boiled eggs
3-4 slices of turkey bacon
either fresh parsley or celery leaves/tops minced (to taste)
1/3 cup Red Wine Vinegar
3T EV Olive Oil
Salt
Pepper

Boil the lentils till tender, and drain. Dice the bacon, fry it up, and toss with the lentils and celery/parsley. Mix up the vinegar, oil, and seasonings, then blend with the lentils. If serving right away, add the eggs- rougly chopped. If waiting, mix in the eggs right before serving. It's nice and the bacon adds a good flavor to everything. It can be served warm or cold, and because there's no mayo, it's not so skeetchy on a hot day.

I miss the sauce. Oh, I miss the sauce.

Glad you're well.
