So I basically got my card games on all weekend with my friend Alf. We took some pictures using that distorting thingamajigger program on his Mac.

I made some good dinner on Saturday! Pepper crusted seared steak in a port wine & fig reduction sauce, along with white asparagus tossed with olive oil, pepper, and grated parmesan cheese. We were going to make a parfait of whipped cream, pineapple, and ginger snaps...but we were so stuffed that it never happened.

Anygay...Just because I refuse to invest in a planner, here's my schedule for a wee bit:

January 12th - Either ariestar is coming to visit, or I am going to lunch with New Year's Dude.

January 18th - Don Rickles @ Foxwoods (I really hope to get shit on by him.)
January 19th - Press Event @ Mohegan Sun for Sun Wine Festival
January 20th - Montreal to see Louis XIV (11 hour car trip. I'll have to bring some...diversion)

January 30th - Meeting fulflej in NYC. Crashing at his friend Hillary's digs
January 31st - Hanging with Trent, then meeting up at some point w/ eclipse77x...Still homeless for that night, barring Trent and I securing a hotel.
February 1st - Hanging with Trent some more, then meeting up with russross. I'll be crashing there.

February 21st - MIAMI! for South Beach Food and Wine Festival. BBQ w/ Rachael Ray? Poker w/ Paula Deen? Cooking class with Rocco Dispirito? Awards show with Eric Ripert? I am so going to piddle.

Sometimes I can be serious.
