Kind of Blue
My current eBay auctions -- Guilty But Insane, a U.K. ARC of Swamp Foetus, and two badass Carnival-themed blank books -- end today. I know things are tough all over, but we are simultaneously trying to pay off a $600+ vet bill and start a restaurant, so please have a look if you can.
[ETA the day's bright spots so far:
1. Thanks to Times-Picayune gardening columnist Dan Gill, I learned the name of a little plant I have loved all my life even though it is a weed.
When I was very young (4 or 5), I remember that henbit had a subtle, delicious fragrance, but now that I am old, I cannot smell it at all.
Dan Gill also helped me ID three of the major weeds that plague my garden -- chickweed, wild geranium, and the hideous burweed, which not only chokes out other vegetation but also makes me itch if I pull it without gloves -- but that wasn't as enjoyable, though I suppose now I can curse them by name as I yank away at their roots.
2. Plantation Cheese Log: The deep South's equivalent to paté. Thanks for this gem go to marquisdd and the "Cajun-Creole" restaurant he located in Dublin.]
