The minutiae of my life in list form
Here's a list of decidedly non-work things I need to get done before noon on Saturday:

- Send money to my creditors
- Clean the living room
- Throw new rug down for that homey look and feel
- Clean the kitchen and bleach work surfaces
- Clean the bathroom
- Buy lightbulbs because my housemate seems incapable of it
- Sweep the stairs
- Attend this session's final ceramics class [to glaze a pitcher]
- Grocery shop for many things including honey, chocolate chips and sexy cheese
- Gather ingredients for chocolate stout
- Buy a set of growlers
- Bottle the steam beer
- Make cookies and possibly bread
- Prep bottles, carboy, and tools for bottling and brewing.

Be sure to check back for exciting dynamic updates!


UPDATE THE FIRST: For the love of Pete, the roomie's home tonight (12/16), and cleaning while he's home is like fighting the tide.

UPDATE THE SECOND: As it turns out, the pitcher didn't make it to firing until last night's (12/17) load, so I had very little to do in the class. I did do some slip work on my remaining piece and gabbed with Wayne and Lisa for a while. Still don't know what to do for next session.

UPDATE THE THIRD: Growlers are freakin' expensive, so they're just going to have to wait. Sexy cheese was acquired, but it required a special trip. Oh, and there was no malto-dextrose for the stout. I got lactose, so any ideas about this being a milk stout are probably well founded. I love you all still.

UPDATE THE FOURTH: Well, no, not everything got done. Enough got done that I wasn't embarassed to have company.

What exactly is "sexy cheese"?
I love your grocery list!

Thanks.

I'm not sure that there's a technical definition. I first heard the term from wisdomseeker and mandolin, who found a shop in NYC with a display entitled, "Our SEXIEST cheese."

For me, it generally means something French or Spanish that's so good that it takes my breath away.

That's really weird. Why is there a strikethrough where I asked for none?

Cuz' you referenced the wrong lj user. I've got an underscore between wisdom and seeker... (<lj user="ta_chuang" did the same thing when you guys crossed the country this summer and I went looking at her user info - I was *not* pleased to be sharing a name with her; Maybe the strikethrough means her journal no longer exists?)

You know, I still think about changing my username...

Re: Thanks.

I couldn't agree more. I will make special trips in search of the new and interesting, and it just kills me that for the most part we're limited to pasteurized offerings. Stupid regulations...

In case you were worried that </i>I</i> was the one who was going to take this as a dig, stop worrying. The thought never crossed my mind :-)

Between the timing and the original title, I started worrying that I might have given the wrong impression.
