Happy birthday, Oooosband!

coffee
Hey, y'all!

It's chipuni's birthday. Please wish him a Happy Birthday!

Impromptu dinner invite

coffee
Hey!

I know, it's been a while ... me and chipuni are having dinner at Kabul in Sunnyvale tonight, around 6:30. Join us if you can (and let us know so we can ask for a bigger table) ...

Finally!

coffee
Finally, finally, finally!!!!!

According to the California Bar Assn website, I passed the bar exam.

Can't use Esq.* until I'm sworn in and paying dues ... but, yippee!!!!

(*I promise, I will only use it for the first month or so ...)

Supporting George Bailey

coffee
Some friends of mine have read/heard my crazy Objectivist spiel about "It's a Wonderful Life," but in truth, I love that movie, and its message of community and ripple effects and sacrifice for the greater good.

There is a little message being spread about about community banks vs. those "too big to fail", using footage from IAWL ... because the movie is in the public domain! Yay! It also makes a good point about really putting your money where your mouth is. Hopefully, if/when my financial profile stabilizes (i.e. I make some real money), I'll be able to move my money, either to a community bank or a CU/FCU. A nice little job by "Why We Fight" filmmaker Eugene Jarecki.



P.S. -> for those who may think I'm just jumping on a meme, I've actually wanted to join a credit union for years now, but had a couple of obstacles that should be gone now. I just need to find a good bank/CU and have a nice-sized check in hand ...

Thankful but no turkey!

coffee
Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Any idea if the Macys' Thanksgiving Parade is on Hulu?

More 140-char recipes

Time to work on a Twitter cookbook?

Coconut milk + brown sugar + vanilla + finely grated coconut-in ice cream maker=heaven from @Scribblecast

I have no ice cream maker, but if ever I get one (or use the trick talked about in Julie & Julia (the book), I wanna try it.

Sauteed fruit

coffee
Good heavens ... has it really been 23 weeks?

Mercy. My apologies.

Anyway, this is a recipe I need to try, but with pears rather than peaches:

From Kenneth - Amazing: a little butter in cast iron pan, cook peach 1/2s face down, then them cut up, sprinkle on some sugar, add Benedictine to deglaze.

Or maybe some muscat or port? Yum

Getting advice

coffee
Thank you, all, for your well wishes and congratulations. Yay!

Now, a question for you, since I've been out of the job market for a while (not that this job market is recognizable to many). What are good sites to find jobs locally? Yes, local in this instance means the Bay Area ... ideally, nothing north of SF/Richmond or south of Downtown San Jose. I'm hitting Craigslist, looking at legal and library job sites ... managed to apply to at least one position per day, but that not enough. Need to start researching and cold-emailing desired companies, but I don't want to miss any serious stone unturned (yum, moss!).

Danke!

Wheee!

coffee
I got my J.D. degree in the mail today. Yay!

Can I haz job now? No, seriously ... if you know of any positions crying out for a librarian/lawyer, let me know!

*mosh of joy*
coffee
I swear, I watched this growing up. Didn't it come on right after the Smurfs?
