five pieces of cold chicken.

invaluable proofing assistance provided by my wonderful friend emily.

a few more oreos (for good luck).

lesson learned : all nighters aren't as much fun when they involve work.

mmm, burning

Last night several friends and I attended a festival at a local Greek Orthodox church. A Greek festival.

We were compelled to attend the festival after hearing tales of flaming cheese. I mean seriously - cheese AND fire? What's not to love? Granted I have partaken in flaming cheese before and never really been satisfied... but I assumed this time would be different. Because did I mention the parts about fire and cheese? Sadly my hopes and dreams were once again dashed against the sharp cliffs of reality. The cheese just wasn't that good. Wasn't that good! How can you screw up such a wonderful pairing?!?! Maybe by using bad cheese and then covering it with the juice of a lemon? I do feel that the concept is sound, I'd just like to see it broadened in scope. Let's try this with Cheddar. Let's try this with Gouda. While we're at it maybe we could even find something besides lemon juice to put the fire out (more cheese perhaps).

Naturally when I say "let's try" what I really mean is "please make for Mike to try". Until then I'll stick to the Greekstyle. Because really - cheese AND fire.

Poetic Justice

Today I accidentally promised my friend Angela that I would update my blog. Stupid unfair promises, what if I can't think of anything witty to say. Duh, plagiarism. As if you didn't see that coming. Given the nature of my forced posting, it seemed only natural that I look to Angela's blog for source material - poetic justice or some such concept.

Actually I would have cross-posted this anyway - bikes, foreign intrigue, pretty girls, i mean what's not to love? Read on. That means follow the link below.
