I don’t have much to say about the Battlestar finale as I am a watcher but not really a follower, I have missed too many episodes. But I would like to note that everyone I have spoken to about it (OK, by everyone, I do mean the two women I talk to everyday who watch it) and the first comment from each of us was that hair and babies must grow differently on New Caprica. I will excuse it though since I have no idea how a half-cylon baby ages or if gravity or something could influence hair growth in a human. That’s all I really have to say about it.
Oh and I know I said I was not going to talk about the muffins but when I said that I meant those specific muffins. There were no muffins last week because there were…vegan scones. Very good pecan scones with just a little bit of maple. Yum. This week there are muffins again, cherry almond muffins. Also very good. I was careful about baking time and turned the pan halfway through since I think my crappy oven is hotter on one side than the other. But they came out fine and I would say they are very good. I don’t much care for the wet fruit in the muffin though so next time I will try it with dried instead. Still, they are tasty nonetheless.
It was a pretty quiet weekend at casa de me. We blew a fuse on Saturday and since we don’t have access to the fuse box we had to wait for the landlady to come and fix it so we were left with all important electrical toys unusable. No internets, no television, no coffee and no toast. It was all fine by me…except the coffee part. That kind of sucked.
Today I noticed that it is actually colder here (in L.A.) than it is on the east coast. Now I realize that I grew up on the east coast and I know what cold feels like (well New Jersey cold, not like Nebraska cold) and L.A. cold is not all that cold but 40 degrees is 40 degrees and that, my friends, is what it has been in the evenings and that is cold. It’s been in the 60s in the afternoons, which I can handle but I swear it’s about 40 at my desk right now. I am wearing two sweaters, wool sock and furry boots and I am still shivering. And as the east coast spring starts, L.A. will stay cool and then it will be June, which is always gray and chilly to me. That seems so absurd but for the 8 years I have spent in L.A. every June people start saying “It’s so cold! It’s June, it shouldn’t be this cold” and I have to start yelling about how it’s always this way and that’s why they call it the JUNE GLOOM people! Man, pay attention why don’t you.
Sorry. That’s my little rant for the day. JUNE GLOOM, ok? I hate it and I am not enjoying March that much either.
