More news

Delinquent blogging leads me to need to do another news digest with previews of coming attractions. In no particular order.
  1. The new semester starts tomorrow.
  2. In order to make it to campus in time to organize myself, I have to leave my house by about 7:45 AM. EVERY DAY. Does. Not. Compute.
  3. We finally filed for Dan's Green Card. Thus commences the waiting game. No, we still haven't seen the movie.
  4. Dan starts work tomorrow!
  5. In August, I baked Franzbrötchen!
  6. Last week sometime I baked chocolate rolls.
  7. I also cooked the inaugural Butternut Squash of the season.
  8. We have Besuch from Deutschland!
  9. My work status currently SUCKS. But will be okay.
  10. We got pluots in our Boston Organics box this week! What the hell are those!?
  11. I learned the German word for quince. Quitte.

plum + apricot= pluot
Those crazy agricultural scientists with too much time on their hands. I have a theory they decided to combine those fruits just because the name "pluot" is so cute. It's just like celebrities that seem to hook up simply because their names are cute together. Well... not just like... celebrities are not so soft and juicy, mostly.

I don't get the pluot. I find it inferior to both the apricot and the plum.

And you've clearly never been a-restaurant-going in March in Germany, when the new brandies come in. Quittenbrand all over the frikkin' place.

Heh... yeah. Both years I've been in Germany for March I've either a) fled the country for Semesterferien-style adventures or b) been so broke I subsisted solely on pasta.
