Pork Shoulder; Vegan Brunch; Playing Kick the Keg
It's been a wild week, the "last week of summer" as some have called it. Julia cooked us a series of encredible meals in Weshaven, with ingredients I've never heard of, tastes heretofore unknown, richness and flavor previously unimaginable. The coup de grace was a pork shoulder. It was one of the best dinners I've ever had in my life; no joke. I wish I'd thought of taking some pictures.
So I'm back up in Oregon for a short spell. Last night was Cian and Ashley's wedding ceremony. They actually got married back in December, but hadn't had a party for extended family and friends. Cian's sister set up a great spread in her back yard and we all got too drunk and there were fireworks and a midnight burrito run and a morning of pure teenage hangover death, then Vegan brunch. Good times. Again no pictures. Sorry.
We're now staring down the barrel of Fiscal Year 2007, time to get back in the business of getting shit done. I've got to start making some careerish moves. The summer has been a horizon-broadening experience, and now it's time to get to the next step. Lots of ideas, and still evolving.
