So, sometimes, you’re writing a post in one tab, keeping up with the twitters in another tab, enjoying some long-form essays in yet another tab, you’ve got a turn-based game open in another window behind the browser, and you just want to listen to some music that makes that sort of thing easier.
I found this song here:
And it’s absolutely *PERFECT* except for how it’s only about seven minutes long.
So I found a version of the song that is about two hours and forty-five minutes long. Yeah. That’ll do.
The problem with it is that you look up and, wouldn’t you know it, it’s two hours later.
And, ah jeez, I need to do my next turn.
Anyway, this weekend is going to be devoted to cooking. We’re going to be doing the workplace game night coming up in February and we’re making Indian food and I’ve never made Indian food before. I mean, beyond warming up naan in the oven. We’re going to be making this recipe as practice/warm-up for the big event itself. There was discussion of whether we wanted to make naan from scratch but I put the kibosh on that. If we’re going to be feeding a dozen people, there’s no way that I have the ability to make enough fresh naan for 12 people eating Indian food with only a single electric oven rather than a kiln.
Especially if I can make something 75% as good for about 5% of the effort using pre-made stuff.
With that, we’re going to be gaming on Saturday night and doing the usual litany of errands, chores, and laundry. But I’m worried about the Indian food. I’ve never made it before.
So… what’s on your docket?
