Sort of Update-y with a Dash of Informative [Jun. 17th, 2010|01:07 am]

We actually went to A TASTE OF SOMERVILLE and ate some outstanding food.

I also partook of a chocolate fountain there. When I am a gazillionaire, I'm gonna get me one of these for emergency chocolate coating of snacks. It's been a couple of years since I done dipped like that... yum.

Anyway, on to other matters...

It turns out that 10mg of generic Ritalin (half a standard 20mg pill) IS too much for me, so I've been cutting them into quarters which works pretty well. Mainly, they just keep me from feeling utterly drained once I'm out of bed so I don't immediately go back to bed.

I pitched articles to The Somerville Scout and they were immediately interested in something I mentioned kind of offhandedly - I worked really hard to get the data together to make a robust little sidebar to a feature article. I may get more work out of that. I'll give a heads-up when the damn thing goes out.

And I've got three more reviews scheduled for The Weekly Dig to round out the summer. Still waiting for a check from them for the interview.

Unfortunately, there's still a lot of me sitting around contemplating Very Bad Things. And sleeping for 2 days was not a good thing. But I'm working on some specific goals in therapy and trying to decide my next move with regard to sleep science. And, of course, over-thinking or thinking through everything.

Next week, let's get together and do something museum-y or crafty or walking?

I really hate the fountains and am glad they're pretty much delegated to tackyland now. You have to add 1/3 canola or other nuetral oil, at least, to make it work. And then the double dipping? Ewwwwww

you're right, fondue is much better and tastier

Just to help out, my father banned chocolate fountains in the house after the second time the one my mother had exploded chocolate onto the ceiling during the same party.

(The fountain wasn't quite warm enough to keep all of the chocolate in a liquid state, and so it would solidify down at the bottom and somehow wedge itself under the lip of the intake portion of the fountain, which would raise the fountain part up some and then it would slam back down into the pool of melted chocolate, sending chocolate flying every-bloody-where.)

I will, however, readily grant that the whole concept and look of a well-running chocolate fountain is well-neigh incredible. (And I don't commonly eat chocolate, so I get no consuming urges when seeing, smelling, or thinking about it. Like it fine, just don't commonly eat it.)
