…and my goodness! I’ve already gotten seven responses. Okay, three of them are obviously robots, but four of them are not–and here I thought I’d been very specific! I’m looking for a bisexual, polyamorous, primary partner–I figured there couldn’t be *that* many of them out there, but apparently there are. (If you’re curious about the personals ad, you can read it for the next seven days here.) I’m planning to wait at least a day to respond to any of them, just to see what happens.
I have also made a batch of rosewater-cardamom-white-chocolate-pistachio fudge, and it is WONDERFUL! It’s a traditional Indian/Afghan sweet, although I don’t think it’s usually done as fudge, and the flavors marry together beautifully. I’ve also made two batches of English toffee, one with chopped almonds and one with just “plain” chocolate (but with Valrhona chocolate, how can anyone call it “plain”?). Tomorrow I may make a more traditional chocolate fudge, but I’m also planning to go off on a 2-3 hour ride (bicycling) and/or interview another AIDS Lifecycle rider, plus more mundane things like laundry, so I figure I’ll just fit in whatever I’ve got time for and ignore the rest.
Took my cat to the vet because he was getting pretty thin; turns out he has constipation and a heavy heart murmur. They ran X-rays and blood tests and it all looks fine, but they want an ultrasound just to be sure. Thing is, an ultrasound costs $200 and there’s only a 50-50 chance they can help with a heart problem anyway, so I may just wait a few weeks to see if clearing out the constipation helps. (Yes, my cat is now getting Metamucil.)
Nothing much else to report for the moment…I have an interview upcoming with Dan Pallota (founder of the AIDS Rides) that I’m very excited about, and am continuing to work on drafts of my book/sample chapters. Other than that it’s the same-old, same-old…but these Craigslist responses should be interesting. I haven’t dated (besides casual flings) in 3 years.
