Ettercaps are cool. They're like spiders, but monkeys. SPIDER-MONKEYS, only they don't throw poop! Wouldn't an Ettercap make a good pet? You'd feed it bananas, and it would kill your neighbors! Ettercaps are purple, too. I like purple. Purple purple purple.







the moreys need a vacation...

Must restrain fist of death.

Now that I've got your attention, time to give a life update!

I know that I haven't been posting recently, but I've been too tired to post - and the recent events have been: GUESTS/WORK/GUESTS/WORK/GUESTS/TOYS


See?

Matt Sinclair is visiting, but the poor guy chose an insanely chaotic week to come over.

Anyway, this week I had my first week of xlasses at California State University, Fullerton! So, after parking and spending $300 on textbooks, I sat down in a classroom and awaited my first class.

Dr, McLain, whom I had met with before, walked into the classroom, looked at me, and then said, "What are you doing here? This is an undergraduate class!"

So, it seems that there was a SLIGHT ERROR in my registration. For the last two days I have been trying to access their on-line server for registration - the server was full, of course. Finally, I went straight to the campus this morning to try another route.

After an hour and a half of parking, and another hour and a half of returning textbooks, I managed to wheedle phone and office numbers of several of the history faculty, and spent much of the day tracking them down and trying to get into their (all full) classes. I am about to head back to campus tonight to attend a class and petition to join.

So, that's the way things are today - funfunfun, eh?

Cars and Food

I had forgotten that my car is white. Di dI tell you that? I had resigned myself to the odd, mottled, dingy grayish color that comes form not having it washed in over a month. It was also about a month due to have its oil change, but I couldn't manage to schedule either bit of maintenance for it.

Finally, I just woke up at 7:00 AM, and did everything before anybody else woke up. Now, my car runs smooth and happily, and is bright, gleaming WHITE again!


In other news, we had a massive banquet today. I will post the pictures, although this may cause your browsers to screw up more than usual:

I had a gourmet meal.

My father, a gourmet chef, prepared a special meal for some old friends who were visiting him - namely, the couple who inspired him when he was a teenager. Suthy and Rodena McClaine are great people, let me tell you that. Just so you know, everything here is homemade.




The appetizer before the meal: Three kinds of caviar with egg, sour creme, chives, and onions



The meal started with corn soup flavored with crab meat and avocado. Sadly, I did not think to take a picture of the soup (it was yellow). HOWEVER.....

The salad was truly unique. Raspberries on puff pastry that was filled with light cheese and flavored like pear, and garnished with pine nuts. You have no idea how refreshing this tastes.


Yes, there was wine with the meal - we had water, champagne (flavored with peach schnapps) and red wine.


Before the next course, we were given a little pallette-cleansing treat - raspberry and mango sorbet with dried coconut, served in an eggshell.


The main course was incredible. Smoked salmon, asparagus, and mashed parsnip - yes, that's parsnip, not mashed potatoes!


The dessert was TRULY fantastic. Homemade Creme Brulee topped with caramel. This is easily one of the smoothest, most refreshing desserts I've ever had in my life.



And that, my friends, is a meal.
