Many exciting things may be happening this week, but rather than speculating, I will instead say that I had a great Thanksgiving, and reorganized the house with the help of the lovely Meff. I purchased a beautiful wardrobe on craigslist, which caused a series of rearranging items. This in turn led to much deep cleaning, and the apartment now looks great. There is junk in the closet to go through, but otherwise, I am ready for this year's impending Buffy Coma, which needs to be very productive. So much art to finish! And, it appears I am very close to having a functional live-in studio, just need some gear. I have set it as a high priority to obtain the Canon Rebel EOS. The price has come WAY down, and the whole kit is available at a discount on amazon. Also, a decent scanner, as my all-in-one printer/scanner combo experiment hasn't gone well. I am moving towards a media-hub computer with an awesome monitor for movie watching/photo editing, and a couple of laptops networked in. I plan on fixing up the tablet PC, which was nailed with hideous viruses in Tokyo, and making it a comic book reader. Comic books are readily available in e-book format, and a tablet is exactly what I want to read it on. Also, then I wouldn't be tempted by the ipad, which is so full of DRM, I would rather continue to avoid it.
Thanksgiving was year eight of Vegetarian Feasting. The NY Times seems to have picked up on this trend, and published to that effect now. I did my wild mushroom and brie bread pudding, as well as a root vegetable mash, roasted squash, cranberry, curry grits, cocktails, leek tart, cheese course with an amazing aged French cheese in the shaped of a bell, foccacia, gravy, parsnips, pomegranate salad...and then I made squash-stuffed pasta shells with cream sauce, and schiacciata with leftovers. Roasted potatoes latkes...much cooking has happened over here.
