Christmas 2008
I suck at updating. As usual for the past year or so, just read jedimentat's LJ (post one and post two) or view my recent uploads on Flickr. Lately I've just been really out of it. Two illnesses, spending lots of time with the girlfriend's family, raiding new content, games I've been waiting years for, transitioning into a new position at work, family in town, and Felicia Day to drool over all suck up a lot of time. So view the photos, and make up your own story to connect them all together.

Went to mingtm's birthday with petemagyar and runstaverun. After a while at the open bar, we got a hankering for lobster. Found lobster in Manhattan available to 1 AM, but not after that. Suffered with French instead. Got much mockery from jedimentat the next day.

Went into the city for dinner while my stomach was having issues, ended up running into runstaverun and kikibird celebrating the former's birthday.

I had wasabi-infused vodka once, it was great! My attempt to make my own was...not.

What dish is jedimentat contemplating?

i was contemplating "Sardines Essaouira" (grilled, with rock salt and lemon) from here:

Interesting, perhaps I will check that place out the next time I'm in NYC. I haven't really explored all of the Mediterranean cuisines...

Certainly look us up the next time you're in town. We're always game to return there, or try something new.

How did you attempt to make wasabi-infused vodka? Just let it sit for a while? What went wrong?
metallian From: metallian Date: January 6th, 2009 05:01 am (UTC) (Hard link)
I took some common green wasabi paste (not real wasabi, even) and stuck an arbitrary amount into a bottle of vodka, then shook it up and let it sit for a few hours.

The vodka got pretty green, but you could barely even taste it.

Now I have a horseradish/true wasabi blend, and I figure I should actually let it sit for a week. And maybe actually read up on how much to use.

It's a great memetic virus to infect people from this area.
