Mmmm, tempura udon.

I have thought of a few things that make me frown:

  • Biting my tongue/lip/cheek. Not only does it hurt crazymuch, but then I also inevitably bite the same spot again several times before it heals.
  • Hiccups. When I was a kid I read in the Guinness Book of World Records that someone had the hiccups for like 68 years. And ever since then, when I get the hiccups, I get very anxious and uncomfortable, because what if they never go away?
  • Too much snarky. I have no idea why people feel the need for so much snark these days. Rather than seeming funny and witty, it always seems kind of mean to me, but then again, I am quite sensitive.
  • Super-crazy heat. Summer is my least favorite season, so I have no idea why I live in Austin, which has summer 837 days a year. Lately I’ve been looking through old photos and videos just to prove to myself that sometimes, it is nice and cool here, and we take long walks downtown, and wear sweaters, and sometimes even coats.
  • Lovely restaurants closing.

In other news, tonight we made pizzas like so: Toast whole wheat pita bread in the toaster oven. Meanwhile, saute mushrooms, garlic, and zucchini in olive oil, then toss in some fresh oregano, salt and pepper. Smear a bit of marinara on the pita, then top with mushrooms/zucchini and shredded four-cheese blend from Central Market. Broil in toaster oven until cheese is all melty-good.

Also, Justin made linguine with bacon, green onions, and cream last night. I have no idea how he made it, but it was really good.

I went on a magazine spree at BookPeople this weekend. I decided that since I don’t like reading newspapers, I could have lovely magazines around for my morning cocoa and buttered-bread habit. I got Real Simple, Good, Lucky Peach, Gastronomica, Frankie, and Dumbo Feather. These should keep me busy for a while. Or, I’ll end up reading them all tomorrow, and then I’ll need to find more.

I haven’t been carrying my cameras around with me. It’s been kind of nice, actually, not to have that added weight, and also the added obligation of photographing my every move. I’m trying to decide whether to try out iPhone photos, or whether a photography break in general is a good thing.

I learned from the Antonellis that if you go to Madam Mam’s, you should order: P15, P41, P48 and S3. You must order all of them. I have no idea what these dishes are, but apparently this is the best meal ever, so we’ll be trying it out very soon.

Hope you all have a good week!
