I went out for my last meal ever at Yaffa this evening. I can say with confidence that I had my two best meals in MKE there. Tonight was pretty fucking good too... But post-valentines day they are changing their format due to the downturn. They are going to a more affordable bar bistro format and changing the name. Tonight wasn't as great because they we're testing the new menu and while it was good, it wasn't great. The owner and cooks are all heartbroken about the change. They've been loyal customers to the Spice House since they opened. I really hate to see the best restaurant MKE has, in my humble opinion, have to go that way. On the up side I can afford their food now on a more regular basis. But I'm also not going to get perfectly done rabbit...

Support for a bush-era missile shield? WTF? I don't get it...There is NOTHING about this administration that has upset me in a major way until Biden stated the administration's support for star wars. FUCK THAT...

oH! the Nordic girls [Feb. 2nd, 2009|11:22 pm]

I've been nurturing this crush on nordic pop stars lately. Firstly, and most importantly, Stina Nordenstam from Sweden makes me shit my pants and I wish more of her stuff was available on iTunes (I get two records... that sucks). Then there is Norway's Anja Garbarek, and holy shit her stuff is making me reconsider the returning to Norway clause in my heritage.

And pop star nonsense aside I'm thinking (again) of submitting my resume to my family's hotel in Norway before my lease comes up this August. If there is one thing I can do truly well it is cook. I'd like to do it in Europe and what better way than to take advantage of a family connection. I didn't intend this post to end up on this topic but, hey, I really need to stop dragging my feet at this point...

The way the world economy has evolved in to something so post-modernly conceptual over my life time i believe the following article may have something. We've been trading in imaginary goods and services for so long why isn't it possible to wish our way out of it.

Vacation Brain! [Jan. 22nd, 2009|09:36 pm]

[music |The Week That Was - A Disclaimer | Powered by Last.fm]

I've decided to go to Austin this spring to visit my friend Kaleb! I do need to get out of town for a bit and he offered. Warm weather in winter would be a good thing for me.

Also, he's sending up a picture of me from when he visited me in China over Chinese new year that I've wanted for a long time. It is a picture of me, in Kaleb's words, at my most despairing. We had just spent the previous evening with a Hmong family at the top of this beautiful rice terrace just outside of Longsheng in the middle of winter. The house was unheated and I had the flu. That didn't stop me from partaking in the home-brew moonshine and partying late. Trying to sleep that night was one of the most awful experiences of my life. I've never shivered more while covered in many blankets and a North Face jacket. The following morning we went down the hill to catch the bus back to town. The road back to town ran along a dirt road on a cliff side. As it was feb. in Guangxi it was raining...think mud. We got on the bus and after a mile or so I knew that the douchebag driving had very little idea how to pilot a mini-bus. He was driving way to fast. I chimed in with "man yidiar" (basically slower dammit in this context). My protestations went unheeded. As we were coming up on a corner the bus lost control. The bus went sideways and got stuck between the cliffside an a little hut that was up on stilts over the river 300 feet below. If we had lost it 40 feet in either direction you would have been reading this description in my obit. We then had to push the bus into a forward pointing direction. The picture was taken while we were taking care of this. Upon boarding the bus every little Chinese grandma that had kept their mouth shut earlier was yelling at the driver. I at least got to feel a bit vindicated in my previously socially inappropriate outburst. Did I mention that on the bus back to Guilin (where I was going to school) from Longsheng we had a breakdown whilst standing up on a 6 hour bus ride for lack of space? Thanks for visiting K!
