I'm not good with titles

Goya aged basmati rice comes in a burlap bag and manages to also smell exactly like burlap. After using our wonderful new rice cooker (how the hell did we live without that thing?) to make jasmine and sushi rice the aged basmati is a major major disappointment.

HOWEVER, I still have a small bag of Nissan basmati rice to try and the local Shopper's (Shopper's Food Warehouse... they used to be one of those places that had sort of warehouse shopping but not in bulk and you bagged your own stuff so they were cheaper. They're still just as cheap but now the cashiers bag stuff for you ... and it would be better if they didn't) which has a huge section of Thai, Japanese, Mexican, and Arabic foods.

This has been the home appliance year. We have a Rice Cooker, a Crock Pot, a Cuisinart, and an insane Mandoline (that I, on the first use, promptly cut the hell out of myself on)... and uh ... I think that's all? We also got a whole new pan set. Apparently 2nd year of marriage = all the appliances you need but didn't ask for when you got married.

I should really be doing some work right now, but I've been kind of hazy all day. In a good, mellow way... but hazy nonetheless.

I need to make everyone the cookies that I promised (Or I'll just keep putting them off until they're valentine's cookies) and figure out what the hell I'm going to do with all these new things I have to find permanent homes for. Our house is labrynth of cardboard boxes and random bags of stuff that I will proptly forget I have. I need an actual break from work. After the freak in the spring over the lack of work I don't think I've actually had a break since it all started up again in April and I definitely haven't had a day off in the last 6 months (day off meaning any day at all, including weekends). I'm not whining. I'm actually kind of marvelling.

    Well alright, Semagic has changed more than a little since the last time I used it. Heh. This is pretty ridiculous. Because Tamara has chosen to…

    I think I need to remember to keep the LJ open in the background. Download another client for it and actually run the thing. Maybe that will increase…
