These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

To read my grudging babblings about design, click the button.

And can we really measure
If we think we're any better
than that skyline that goes on and on
forever, on and on...."

Everybody in this world wants the same damned thing-
just not at the same time.

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

What I see, is what you get.

I am making a bacon wrapped turkey this year, however... I have a close friend who is brining.

I think I have hand cut spicy here, actually. We'll see how it goes. I'm only in it for the food anyway.

I really, (really. Like, with the passion of a thousand white hot suns) dislike this holiday. I concentrate on the food to keep from ranting.

I'll condense:

Holiday +media sets up unrealistic expectations re: family, tradition and "normal".

If you've ever read someone's xmas or valentine's day rants? Kinda like that. Just that this holiday is my pet hate.

I really hope there's no food disasters. I had enough problems back in August whenI cooked that brisket.

What's on the menu at your house? I've already made the cranberry goo, mashed cauliflower with garlic, chives and basil, and glazed carrots. (all of this keeps fine til go-time.) Tomorrow I'm doing a pear-ginger upside down cake, creamed spinach, and the oyster dressing from Deanie's. Thursday I'll throw a Mrs. Smith's apple crumb in the oven (I'm already making a cake, so I'm not making pie too.) and the turkey and calling it a day. I still have to straighten up the guest room, throw in one more load of wash, clean the kitchen (ahahahahaha) manage to get to target, pick up the oysters, some fresh parsley (stop and shop was *dead out.*) and some flowers tomorrow. But so far? It's been relatively pain free on the cooking front. It wasn't even a zoo in the supermarket today.

I posted some carrots just now, post-peeling but before glazing.

There's no way to make mashed cauliflower look good. It looks like regurgitated dryer lint.

If the cake and turkey come out pretty of course I'll take photos.

I just wish I had some proper serving dishes. I'm not even sure I have enough *bowls*.
