Deception Pass, Anacortes, WA - May 2009
Brother of the Companion Cube was in town last week. Twas truly a lovely visit. We didn't overdo the "fun" as I am wont to do on occasion, but had just enough to ensure a great time. There were movies, parties, hiking, eating, museums and oh yes, some Rock Band. I don't know if you know this about us, but you cannot stay over at our house without picking up a plastic instrument. Thems the rules. The bad news about that is that he totally sang better than I do! Bastard replaced me in the band! Good thing he had to go back home, else we might have cat-fought over the microphone...or not.
I am also back on the cheesemaking. Several batches of moz and one batch of chevre have been made. I am gearing up to make some provolone. I am scared, but - as in most new things - also super excited.
Speaking of excited, we also went to the gun range whilst BotCC was here. We shot a bunch of different guns including one I keep forgetting R-something 15/16 (whatever it takes). In any case, it was an army type semi-automatic 9mm thingy and it was a blast (no pun and all that). I shot fairly well with it, but not as well as one person in our party that shot the ding-a-ling off our Master Chief target. Instead of being worried at the rage potential, her boyfriend thought this was hilarious (as I did, but I don't got no ding-a-ling). Perhaps some introspection is in order there...or not.
In further boring life updates, I had dim sum for lunch yesterday. It was delicious and was accompanied by fantastic company. Aren't you jealous?
