It's not Sunshine Cleaning.

Plus Clash of Wings, Across the Street Thaw, like a permanent two year old, I wish I were William Gibson, Kindle on droid, A Short History of Nearly Everything, the Big Apple, props to Apple, pretentious viewing, not so good wine, gaming day and 7 wonders and less.

Poll : Most Pretentious TV to watch?

Whelp... after many years of doing this crap on my own... I picked up a day gig at Microsoft (via Volt).  I have a lot to learn...

Also: I think I had the swine flu.

Lastly, it is raining here in Seattle, yet  I must walk to the grocery store, W.W.J.D?

Red, Red Whine

Dinner last night was Vispannetjes, a Flemish fish stew cooked for me as I worked on rebuilding my network, the phone and DSL having finally been switched on Tuesday evening. Only a month late: not bad for Germany. I no longer have to borrow my neighbour's unsecured wireless network which has connect speeds indicative of a Hayes Accura 33.6 Modem.

Made with salmon and pollock in a creamy sauce with mushrooms and cheese, it was quite tasty. It's also made with red wine. I don't have "cooking wine" at home because I won't cook with any wine I wouldn't drink, and there are enough cheap yet drinkable wines which are fine for cooking and only cost a few euros a bottle. Baron Philippe de Rothschild Mouton Cadet Bordeaux is not one of these. Running around €40-100 a bottle this is stuff you drink slowly and enjoy. You can cook with it, but unless your name is J. P. Moneybags, you probably won't... unless you happen to be my girlfriend.

The wine she served with dinner? Five-euro-a-bottle merlot. The stuff I got for cooking. Because then we'd be drinking the same wine all evening.

The Rioja Viña Primera Reserva 1998 really is excelent.
