currently, obsessed with coconut curry — or anything that’s thick and warm and spicy, really. made a pasta sauce yesterday with tomato sauce from a jar, sauteed some chicken breast and sausage with onions and garlic and red pepper flakes, and poured the jar of tomato sauce over it — had it with linguine first, but then decided it might be better over rice with a square of mozzarella cheese melted into it, and, well, i was right.
currently, writing a novel, and it feels like quilting at the moment because i’m typing up passages on evernote (oh, evernote; i love evernote), and, later, i’ll be stitching them together to create one cohesive manuscript. trying to start with chapter one, though, with the stitching together part, and the “official” drafts are on word — and, you know, the most fun part about this novel thing is that i can bring back chapter titles. i always loved chapter titles. the more fanciful, the better.
currently, waiting for nell to announce something, anything, relating to their upcoming album release. we know they’ve been recording, and we know this one’s an album, and we know there will be a full-length version of “coin seller” on it, but that’s about it. i want more. part of me says i need more, in the way that we “need” more of good things that comfort us and encourage us and support us, even in the most abstract ways. i started typing up a post about nell and why they mean so much to me — maybe i’ll post it one day, maybe i won’t.
