A little less than a happy high
News from Johny Pneumonic
Convalescing is boring and lonely business. That said, major props go out to mudguts for stopping by last night to have pie and to deliver a bag full of viewing pleasure. Mad Max made my day a little more bearable, and the green chile chili was quite tasty.

By contrast, the roommate continues to self-fixate and has asked me for reassurances on three separate occasions that bacterial pneumonia is not contagious. I have no idea, but the question is beginning to make me want to pretend to be a "fabulous twenty-something" and drink all of his scotch.

Gorgoth the Snow Demon has returned, though he is not quite so breathtaking with his proliferation throughout the suburbs last season. Perhaps sensing this, his return was accompanied by the latest beast summoned from the abyss to ward this house throughout the holiday season. Rumor has it that he is known as Skeltar the Undead Reindeer. (My madness truly knows no bounds.)

Incidentally, I'm still sick, but the coughing has for the most part stopped.

Oh, beer folk... I need to rack the Steam tomorrow night. If you're free and have any interest in helping me not contaminate the brew, drop me a line. Hell, drop me a line anyways.

Hope you're all well.

Current Mood: sick sick

Skeltar the Undead Reindeer had a very shiney skull!
And if you ever saw it, you would know you were in Hell.
All of the Undead Reindeer used to run and flee from him.
Skeltar the Undead Reindeer smelled an awful lot like gym.

Then one foggy Christmas eve, Gorgoth came to say,
"Skeltar with your skull so bright,
You slept with my wife last night."

Then how the Undead loved him
As they shouted out with flavah
Skeltar the Undead Reindeer
You're one bitching Reindeer playah!

One man's madness is another's viable career choice.

it was my first attempt at green chili.
have any advise on improving the recipe?

next go will have about two pounds of pork in the mix.

hmmmmm, pork.

I see what you meant about the vinegar flavor, though I can't say that I found it unpleasant. Not sure how far off a traditional treatment you want to go, but I'd be tempted to add a little bit of corn and maybe a mix of peppers. Maybe once I'm well we can make a trip to the Brighton environs to see what might be available. In the meantime, I'll think about it more.

sure, corn.
had thought about adding some of the jalepeno sauce. its got a nice flavor but may have been a little much for the mc's in my family.
the vineger wasnt nearly a bad as i feared.
the gc they serve at anna's has got the vineger taist. dont care for it.
if we can find some fresh or frozen chili's i think well be set.
there are a few markets in somerville we could check.
last trip home, my pop tried to send me off with a big bag of frozen hatch chili's. should have taken him up on it.
