A little less than a happy high
Thought of the zombie
I keep finding myself up much later than I had intended. I know that I feel tired, but there's a restlessness that has touched me. More and more, it feels like if I go to sleep I'll miss something horribly important. Someone will try to call or write and when I discover this when I wake up in the morning, I'll be horribly disappointed. I'm spending my nights waiting for something to happen, and the anticipation is making me crazy. I think that I'm mostly just lonely.

Last night's self-spawned adventures proved fruitful, though there were som unforeseen glitches. I've been forced lactose for the stout because there was a run on malto-dextrine at the Modern Brewer. Actually, all of their stocks have been pretty well depleted since it appears that half of the population of Somerville has decided to become involved in the hobby this Yule. It makes me happy that c_m_i and wildflowersoul have gotten the bug. It also makes me happy the the store is generating that much business. It makes me less happy that I was having difficulty gathering ingredients for this week's project.

I'm still behind in my work, and I'm behind enough that the development projects which I'm really supposed to be doing as a manager are nigh impossible to contemplate. I am not an animal a file clerk. I'm truly meant to be a systems person.

I find myself wondering if there's a branch of library science that would be applicable to this kind of document management...

Er, yeah. All of it. There's also a slew of courses at Simmons on Government Documents and how to organize, locate, and distribute them.

When Jen and I were in MB yesterday to get my booty, there was at least one other guy buying a starter kit as a gift.

Heh. That's appropriate enough. ;P At this rate, it may be worthwhile pursuing something like it.

I was at MB for all of half an hour and they sold three, and almost all of the large bags of DME were sold out. The thing that really killed me was that the sales clerk told me he had bought the last of the malto-dextrine the day before.

As for missing calls...

I can empathize with the "staying up later than intended" thing, though I think more for reasons that there seems to be more I want to do in my days than there is days to do it in.

But if you're that concerned about missing calls over the course of the night, I'd suggest plugging that answering machine back in. =)

(It might make it easier to reach you, too...)

And no, I'm not about to get into homebrewing; no closet space for the carboy, etc. I do, however, lately feel an urge to start making my own cheese. Not only do I love cheese (sexy and non), but as a vegetarian I'd prefer to be 100% sure about where the rennet in my cheese is coming from.

The power of cheese

MB now sells books and kits for cheesemaking. I was beside myself when I saw them. It's easily something I could see myself doing. That and keeping bees. I'm such a dork.

Oh, and BAH!

Re: The power of cheese

Or better yet, cheese with bees in it.

And so it begins

I'm not sure bee-cheese would fly. At the very least, I'm not sure that it would be filled with deliciousness.

I wonder, though, if you could flavor a mild cheese with honey...

Re: The Bee-Chees(e)

Oh, bee-cheese definitely wouldn't fly. Cheese is far too heavy for that.

On the other hand, I bet the Bee-Cheese version of "Stayin' Alive" would be something special.
And I bet one could flavor a mild cheese with honey. Sort of a mascarpone-y result, I'm betting, since that's the only sweet cheese I can think of at the moment.

Re: The Bee-Chees(e)

I was afraid of the puns that would spawn from this.

I'm not so afraid of the possibilities that are suggesting themselves. I really do enjoy DIY projects too much, I think.

Re: The power of cheese

Now that news (the MB-cheese-supply news) is very welcome! If I'm not actually gifted with any over the holidays, as I'd asked for, I'll definitely be giving it a try on my own funds. I'll keep you informed; you're welcome to assist.

Re: The power of cheese

Have any idea where we can get unpasteurized milk and cream?

Yup. =) Has already noticed that one on my own (Google is a wonderful thing), but it's still appreciated.
