You never really realize how much stuff you got until you move.
Most of the boxes are marked "kitchen". The new apartment has a smaller kitchen with fewer storage. Wonder how I'll fare.
Oh well, I guess I'll find out.
Inspired by the movie, I attempted to make an omelette just like Julia Child made it. I ended up with this sorry looking thing. I think the pan wasn't hot enough, and I kept the eggs in too long. Also, I put too much butter that wasn't that fresh anymore. Oh well, maybe I'll attempt it again after I move :)
Here's Julia making an omelette, the right way.
It's not the best lechon in the world, not like the kind Anthony Bourdain rhapsodized about. But it was lechon nonetheless, a whole roast pig. A few stragglers were there too--a couple of nuns also missed the voters registration. Oh well, they will do another one in November; not sure whether that qualifies me to vote for the elections next year, tho.
I'm hoping this blog gets a new lease, too. Gotta have more inane ramblings. So what should I talk about in this blog?
I saw Julie and Julia tonight. Friends at work were joking about how it was a "chick flick". Yeah, it is, but how can I *not* watch a movie about Julia Child? It was a good movie. I am not usually a fan of Meryl Streep, but she did justice to the role here.
After watching the movie, I felt like I should be cooking more. Ah well, perhaps after I move next week.
Here's a video of Julia Child:
LOL just goes to show, they never really read these things. This should remind us all that when dealing with numbers especially floating point, we should be careful about Not-A-Number values. Reminds me of this article by Gary Leavens.
The lead plaintiff in the class-action suit, Rosa Martinez, 52, of Redwood City, Calif., was cut off from her $870 monthly disability benefit check in January 2008 because the system had flagged an outstanding drug warrant in 1980 for a Rosa Martinez from Miami. An investigation showed that the warrant was for a different Rosa Martinez. Martinez tried for months to convince officials that she was innocent but failed.(via slashdot)
