2006 May 28

Orange juice
Woongjin Morning Rice
Two slices Marmite toast
Home fries

Corn chips and guacamole
Bacon sandwich
Orange juice
Two vodkas and soda

Cloister Cafe - Gin & tonic

Corn chips and guacamole
Artichoke tortelloni with parmesan and garlic, oil, pepper and basil sauce
Orange juice

Hanger - Four Pabst Blue Ribbon

Zum Schneider - Jever with "lemonade"

Little Branch
Gin and tonic
Campari and soda

I found comfort seeing another patron at Hanger share my frustrations that his companions declined to dance to the Violent Femmes' "Add It Up." I also discovered the awful secret truth behind Zum Schneider's radleren and russen (?) - for lemonade, they use Sierra Mist. With no disrespect to FoodFriend Murbles's fondness for this soda, I cannot in good conscience call it lemonade. Please advise Lorelei to be grateful for my increased patronage in the future. Still, this is only a small hurt that Zum Schneider has done me, and I do not believe that it should be closed in punishment. My refrigerator has indeed stopped working again. I do not think that I can reasonably shut my fridge down every two weeks to defrost it. So I guess to elaborate on my kitchen wish list mentioned recently, I would like a refrigerator. Maybe even more than I would like a wooden cutting board.

Jack, I have a wooden cutting board recommendation for you. Ikea sells a large wooden cutting board for around 30 bucks. Despite the general shittiness of Ikea's Marketplace items, my cutting board has held up pretty well -- I wash, dry, and oil mine pretty thoroughly -- and considering its size (roughly 14" x 18" x 2"), it was an excellent value. I have never seen another wooden board of its size sold for so cheap, even at Bed Bath & Beyond.

Upon further research, my cutting board rec assumes you would be willing to travel to Ikea in Long Island. (However, Brooklyn location opening soon, date TBD.) I was also beyond horrified to discover that there is no Target in Manhattan! W. T. F?!?! Where THE FUCK am I supposed to buy fair-quality boxed wine in the near future???

The cool kids go to the Elizabeth, New Jersey Ikea. Re: Target, there's one, I think, in Brooklyn. You may just have to stockpile boxes every couple of weeks.

Upon review of this entry, I realize that I have made an error in chronology - I had my first drink at the Cloister Cafe that afternoon, and two vodkas while preparing and eating dinner.
