I am right now preparing Crispy Pork Belly (Siu Yuk), to be eaten with rice and sauteed ha choi. While I'm doing the parboiling, I am watching Nyesha kick ass on Last Chance Kitchen.

Also, I have pretty Parisian shoes. )

Photos of scenery and me in a pretty dress posing with a bear below cut.

Take a walk with me around my parents' property. It was sunny but chilly. The smooth copper-colored shrubs are manzanita; the wood is satiny, and the bark skims off in brittle scrolls like old parchment.

I took these photos a couple months ago, but forgot to post them. The first set are of the alpine landscape of an area just outside of Yosemite and at a higher elevation, only accessible by a quick boat ride across a very blue lake. The dog is Roxie, my parents' caretaker's dog, whom we borrowed because she's a hiking dog and likes snow.

The hummingbird photos were taken at my parents' place in Mariposa, near Yosemite. They have gotten so used to people that I took the photos from about a foot away. I was trying to get them to perch on my finger. Also, a dachshund race at a rodeo.

Sirens was wonderful - just what I needed after an exceptionally miserable month. I met up with old friends and acquaintances, made new friends, dressed up, dressed down, watched snow fall, had great discussions, listened to great discussions, told stories, listened to stories, and plotted a presentation for next year!

This is still my favorite con, and next year, I was thrilled to hear, it will be held in a different and, for many including myself, more accessible location, in Washington at very low altitude. (Also, I hope to never again fly into Denver airport. It was the worst turbulence I ever experienced, and I spent the last half hour of the flight locked in the bathroom throwing up, with the stewardesses screaming at me to get out. "I'll give you a bag!" one yelled. When I emerged, she shouted, "The captain is very angry at you!" I muttered, "Sucks to be him," as I returned to my seat, stepping over some more obedient person's pool of vomit in the aisle. Yecch.)

I have to run off to grad school in a few minutes (unsurprisingly but unfortunately, what I did not do was study), so this update will contain only a few photos as a teaser.

This set covers some more Paris street scenes and the Musee Rodin.



An ordinary street scene, taken during a random morning stroll about town.

Athletes, gardens, the Thinker, and a very fat bird )
