Still here, still swamped. Keep prayin'.

More when I get a moment to breathe.

A thousand words

This is what it's like ovah heah. (Literally! Raining like mad!)

Updateness for June

The meeting I had on Thursday was an epic horror show. Olympically bad.

The meeting I had on Friday (most of the same people) was considerably less bad. Still bad, mind you, but significantly less so.

This week has sucked on colossal scale.

As a fun aside, I realized that when running on an adrenaline overdose, one doesn't really need to eat for 48 hours. Or sleep much. Or well.

But, there are pinprick-sized glimmers of hope. Let's pray for that.

Important day today, businesswise. Prayers -- ideally scrunchy-faced ones -- are humbly requested.

(Yes, combox off.)

This is all you need to know.

NOS went to a party last night.

He spent his time making "mocktails" and they were a hit.

Imagine what he'll do when he turns 12.


P.S. Here is his version of the "Virg-opolitan"
1 oz fresh lime juice (note the techniques of cutting the lime for maximum juice extraction, and for the extraction process)
1 oz simple syrup (the brown stuff next to the simple syrup -- the clear stuff -- is demerara sugar syrup)

1 dash orange flower water
1½ oz cranberry juice (the kind without corn syrup, etc.)
Shake over cracked ice, strain and serve in a stemmed, chilled cocktail glass -- incidentally, he shattered one while practicing -- with an orange twist.

One more thing...again.

Please do not stop the prayin', chantin', spinning around a circle of chicken bones, etc.

As we're not off the hook ovah heah.
