Weekend Update

On Thanksgiving, I whipped us a mes’-a-sumthing! Butternut Squash Crumble (ala Martha), Potato Rolls, Buttermilk Pound Cake with Lemon Icing and Raspberry Sauce, and smoked ham. Mmmm… good! Although I do need a food processor. My crap kitchen is over-flowing with uber-gadgets, including the mondo KitchenAid and Le Creuset for miles, so I’m not even sure why I don’t have one yet… Santa?
Thanksgiving night, Mike and I went to Alegria. Having seen La Nouba, Dralion, Mystere, and O (3x), Cirque has yet to disappoint. I know it’s all a bit fruity to love a bunch of French Canadians that much (especially given Celine), but this ain’t Madonna or Babs… so shuddup. To get the best seats, you’ve gotta buy their “Tapas Rouge” package which consists of all sorts of foo-foo extras like a VIP tent with drinks, hor d’oeuvres, and dessert.
Saturday, dealmac pointed me to a 200GB HD at Circuit City for $249. Not a good price, but $150 in rebates brought it down to a steal at $99.99. 7200rpm with a 8MB Cache. Fancy. Natch, 8 weeks for rebate processing. Ugh. My 4 year old Mac now packs 1.5GB in memory and half a terabyte in storage. Think it’s time for a G5.
Saturday night saw Lost In Translation. Feel good. Bill Murray needs a face lift and dermabrasion.
Um, that’s about it.
