I’m absolutely jittering today, waiting for word from Seth on the drive recovery. Yeah, I know it’s too soon, we really could not hear before tomorrow at earliest and friday at latest. But something in my head decided it was today and I can’t stop checking email and looking at my IM client (adiumX) to see if Seth’s logged on. At which point I’ll have to resist the urge to pester him.
Thanks to glorious chemicals, I managed a decent night’s sleep last night. God I needed it. Also thanks to my friend Mike, a stray brought home by yummy-ex-nanny Andrea (who brought over her photo ipod last night so she could show me pictures of her ass – I love this girl). Mike’s havin’ a bad patch in his relationship, and needed some love; for Mike, this means cooking for someone. He made a fantastic salad of spinach, maytag bleu, chopped almonds, fresh sweet corn, balsamic and a light oil (we were out of EVO, but we all agreed that was ok, the lighter oil let the ingredients shine in this salad). He followed with great grilled rib-eyes and chard sauteed in bacon fat with a little cider vinegar, and mashed potatoes. An excellent dinner, and all I had to do was clean up around Mike while he played my usual role of chef.
This is why, back in days of yore when I had dotcom money, I built a giant kitchen. So people would come to me and cook; an evening in the kitchen is one of my absolute favorite things.
It made for a relaxed evening, rounded out by watching the DVD of Sin City, which I just got. My god, I love this movie. It’s sheer brilliance, and a second viewing just makes it better. I was noticing minor touches I hadn’t seen the first go-round, and the noir crime-novel-b-movie dialog, which sounds stilted at first, becomes poetry. Everything about this movie is beautiful, casting, visuals, pacing, music, lighting, language. If you have not seen it, go buy the DVD. Don’t even bother to rent it, go buy it now.
An evening like that helped, but I’m still vibrating today. I just want word back – did we get any data or not? I wanna move back to the m’sphere and finish cleaning up, but I don’t wanna rebuild everything until we know if we have to.
More coffee. That’ll help. Mmmmm, Peets!
