Hellooooo, weekend!

Made peach cobbler, old school style.

And by old school, I mean using Bisquik, because I am fucking lazy.  But I used fresh peaches instead of canned, added cinnamon and powdered ginger to the batter, and topped it with turbinado sugar.  It seems more like cake to me, but....OMG YUM!

Which I think can probably said for anything made in an 8X8 pan that involves a half cup of melted butter.  Yes, my inner Julia Child is in love.

I've been on a ginger kick lately.  I want to put it in EVERYTHING.  I wish I'd had some fresh for my stir fry tonight, but that would mean a) putting on pants and b) dealing with the weekend bus schedule.  I could have gotten some on my way home yesterday, had I not given my last $5 to a guy at the bus stop.

Lest I sound too altruistic, it was more a case of "Dude, you were sitting on MY BENCH and I am trying to write by the crappy second hand light in the bus shelter.  No, I will not walk with you to the Waffle House to buy something to eat.  Please take this cash and your delusions of being a presidential advisor and GO AWAY."

Again, I do not people well in the mornings.  In retrospect, I could have pointed him to the men's shelter less than 2 blocks away and saved my money for ginger and a bottle of cheap chardonnay that I would so desperately need by the end of work yesterday, but my instict was, honestly, "Shut up, leave me alone, and I WILL PAY YOU TO GET OFF MY BENCH!"

Misanthropic do-gooding.  Only me, huh?

I fear my early morning writing will be coming to an end soon, because it is getting darker and darker in the early hours (funny how that whole wheel of the year thing works, huh?).  Then it's back to riding the 6:10 and reading by the light of my spiffy new flashlight.  Seriously, LED flashlights are AMAZING, especially if you have poor low-light vision.

Yeah, I know.  Coming late to the party again.

Happy Saturday, y'all!

I always meet people like that downtown when I work in the old Coty County building. To be honest, I a,minna miss it for the next two weeks. My coworker saw a man carrying a VCR. He is 19 and oh so young. I told him to not be surprised what you see downtown.

I noticed it is dark in the morning now, too. And dark earlier...

Bisquik is love. ^3^ And I do not miss the bus at all.
