Headache is gone! Whee! It took a little while to get rid of it, and I still hadn't lost it by the time I was getting ready to go to lunch with a friend of mine. Actually, she was my mentor when I first started working at the college. We haven't talked in months, and I figured it was high time we caught up. It was nice, actually. We went to a sushi restaurant in town that I'd always snubbed because nothing IN TOWN could possibly be any good, right? Yeah. Wrong. I had a fantastic
teriyaki beef rice bowl. There was much love for it. (I was still feeling a little queasy, or I would've had sashimi, but I fully plan on going back, so...)
It was really nice catching up with her -- I used to waste so much time in her office during my between-class gaps. We decided we totally needed to do it again, soon.
When I got home, I discovered serious problems with my concentration today, so decided to cook instead of write. I started making dinner around 3:30 -- chicken curry has a lot of prep work, but it's so worth it.
Seriously -- it's got a cook-time of 2.5 hours, and that's to say nothing of the prep, which includes toasting cardamon pods, coriander seeds, fennel seeds, peppercorns, cloves, 1/2 a cinnamon stick, and fenugreek seeds and grinding them up.
But the house smells to-die-for delicious right now, and I like making something that takes effort every now and then.
And what did I listen to while I was toasting, grinding, chopping, frying, and later dicing and sauteeing?
"Kaze no Naka e" -- the Miroku character single.
I have lost count how many times I've listened to it so far.
Yes, really. Lost count.
And I think it's only fair for me to blame my love affair with this song on two people: moonphased
It's not fair
that Kouji sounds that good
, all the time.
(Seriously. I feel kind of bad sometimes, like I should like "Gou" more than I do. It's okay, but not my favorite of the three.)
*Loves "Kaze no Naka e" like rowr
