OK, as I am an inveterately bad present buyer, I never expect presents from other people. Chances are if you are my friend you have experienced a moment of "Damn, Kim forgot my birthday?" or "Thanks for the... hug." Nevertheless, there are always people who are still most generous of spirit who want to get me presents for my birthday. For these steadfastly giving souls, I would like to just say I do have a long-ass wish list over on amazon of obscure cds that you can't just walk down to the CDepot and find.

Apart from a Mustang, Peace on Earth, and More Spare Time, that's what I want for my birthday. :)

This weekend was, by the way, fucking fantastic. Friday night was spent cleaning the house all over. Saturday started at 7am...

listened to car talk... got to drum lesson, had drum lesson, felt ashamed i didn't practice more... zipped home and cleaned more... greeted nostradomnatrix and bigdaddygoat... had lunch with same at jungle grille in CP... toodled up to Atomic and shopped for a guitar for Nostra with much success... toodled home and gave impromptu sermon about music theory... sat down and went "buh" for a second before ushering in panicsyndrome and eventually mephisto21 for jam session... rocked the house for a few hours, including dragging Jack in on vox... and then lots and lots of people came and partied... crafting_change's vegan twinkies were a big hit and i drank a bottle of wine and hell, there were impromptu sing-alongs. i debuted the rock camp dvd. we will do this again soon. finally crashed around 3, utterly spent and satisfied.

Sunday was grueling softball practice (I caught an actual ball in the actual outfield which was pretty much the highlight of my day.) and then Pirates 2. I ignore the naysayers, because Pirates 2 was lots of fun. I did think it was a tad too long but whatev. I had a sesame seared tuna salad for dinner and weirdly find myself on a seared tuna kick now.

If you haven't been to Tsunami in Annapolis, it's pretty fantastic. That was my lunch on friday - a bento box. For $8 I got teriyaki shrimps, rice, a salad with fancy ginger dressing, and 6 rolls of whatever you call those sushi rolls with crab in them. It was awesome. Come have lunch with me in Annapolis sometime and see.

Thanks! It doesn't seem like much but in real games I get stuck in right field much of the time, and not many balls come out there. So I don't get much practice and then have no confidence in my ability to see where the ball is going. So this is a big deal for me. :)

No, I complete understand. I've been following your softball adventures and I'm truely happy for you. Think about it. To catch a ball, you are doing Trigonometry! :)

My hand was totally trigonometrized into the right place, because that ball was way the hell over my head so it's not like I actually saw what happened. Yeah!

I've stopped doing almost all of it. I basically get people presents when I think I've found something that they would really love and couldn't just pick up themselves. I am about 7 weddings behind on wedding presents, and I'm pretty sure this means I'm going to burn in hell forever.

I'd love to offer that Jack caused this, because he actually hasn't done presents forever and has like, actual reasons and ideals behind it, but it's my own fault. Just because we're romantic partners doesn't mean his rules always apply to me.

I get so pleased to hear all the exciting new foods you are eating! I know we still love us some steak and a pot of Kraft mac & cheese, but seared tuna?! I may burst with excitement for your expanded menu options. :)

The tuna thing has its roots at a Ruth's Chris steak house. I only get to go there like once every berjillion years but man, their tuna appetizer turned over a whole new tuna leaf for me.

Seared tuna is awesome. Three tricks for making it (which you probably already know): gently rinse the raw fish and pat dry before anything else to take some of the fishy taste off the outside, coat in a layer of sesame seeds to protect the exterior, and sear for at most 3 minutes a side on the hottest fire you can find. I like the huge burner on my stove and my cast iron skillet, though one of these days I should try the grill (or even the grill chimney thing) because it gets hotter.

Dearest, there is an article on an adult's rock camp in Ms. this month.

Is it yours? Because I was all scanning the article looking for you or Zorah's girlfriend. Then I realized I don't know her name. So yeah.

CURSE ME! I have let my Ms. subscription lapse. I shall hie myself to a Border's and get one posthaste and let you know.

I'm letting mine lapse, too. It costs a pretty penny and I'm just not that into it anymore.

I like that it is a source for news. about. women. You know, it's a nice alternative to opening up the Times every morning and going "White men, white men...do things happen to other people?" And it's pretty worldly inclusive, too.

But sometimes, just sometimes, I get this inkling of feminist grandstanding. Like, "Look at us. We're icons!" And especially after I got the report of how the more radical feminists were treated on the Ms. cruise, I just felt like "These people actually don't represent me..."

I figure I can keep up with the Jonses over at we_have_brains and the grrrly news posts. And subscribe to Bitch.

Now I'm going to be thinking of The Jerk all day.

All I need is this lamp.
