a productive weekend

What was produced? Relaxation, for one. Being in a blizzard kind of does that to you. Also,

1. A big pot of rice pudding
2. Delicious Asian food (This publisher has a fantastic collection of Asian cookbooks, by the way)
3. Intense punk-inflected fatigue from seeing Mission of Burma live!
4. Openmouthed astonishment at watching Shock Corridor: because honestly, who wouldn't be driven insane by integrating white colleges, developing nuclear weapons, and/or fighting in Korea? Let alone trying to talk with crazy people. Please.

Also, maybe some reading.

Moral: sometimes it's important to just chill the fuck out.

Oh yeah--rice pudding sounds perfect. Where can I get me some of that...?

easy to cook! You basically cook the rice normally, but with cinnamon sticks, lemon zest, and cardamom pods if you have, then pour in about the same amount of milk as you used water to cook the rice, plus a fair amount of sugar or honey, and simmer to whatever texture you like. I guess you can add raisins too, but I like my rice pudding unblemished. :)
