adventures in live blogging and vanilla makingPosted: November 10, 2008
Oh, look! We’re all live blogging and shit! Me, cho-girl, Elsie and Little Babushka. We totally wish you were here.
6:59 pm – Elsie outlines dinner options – pasta, pasta, or rice. N.B. pasta option the first was for her to make pasta. Lord.
So far we have mirated the gorgeously cute and medicinal bottles, set up the cheese, olive and bread course. Cho-girl tries (again) to convince us to etch “vanilla” onto the aforementioned bottles.
Ummm….. not so live…. dinner break 7:32. If one could call it a break – we haven’t done shit yet.
Look! Pictures! Guest blogged by cho-girl via photobooth. Woo!
8:27pm – here we go. LB plans to put a bean – well, let’s not say where. Oh, dear. Discussion ensues about proportions. Simply Recipes calls for 1 bean to 3 cups of vodka. We like to play fast and loose with proportions in Starrhill, so – ah, crap; we’re in Woolen Mills, not Starrhill. So let’s say we go for something close to 1:3, yes?
As a side note, do those over the counter cold meds do *anything* of value? I say no.
Back to the task at hand – tops are being taken off the jars, beans are being cut and split. And being offered for me to put down my pants. Oh, dear.
8:38 pm – all bottles are de-stickered, bean parts have been added to some. Elsie starts pouring the vodka in, by way of a beautiful funnel. Happliy we are all brought joy by simple things like funnels. Wait. Maybe that’s just me.
Elsie will be getting a mini milker! It’s a done deal. Then we will have milk for our next live blogging and food crafting adventure.
8:47 pm – huh. We are out of vodka. Opps. This was all rather anti-climactic. Now we just wait. For 2 months. Stay tuned.
