had today. adds a boost of something hard to describe, adding a mild attenuation of the constant noise pinging about in my head, coupled with a sense of groundedness or (at least physical) balance. the feeling fades all too quickly, still it's good for spurring the attempt at a relaxing weekend.

a coffee review, i guess 

update: "ashtray blend" is cancelled by cold brewing. pls don't ask about my ratios, they're eyeballed and arbitrary; only definitely more on the "liqueur" spectrum after 24 hours. decent with a couple ice cubes, better than office coffee at this point.

"No thanks, I don't eat octopus."

"Do you not like the taste?"

"No, it's just that they are too smart."

"That's just weird. Octopus eat each other. Are you allergic?"


"Is it a religious thing or something?"

(Sigh) "Sure. It's a religious thing."

"OH. Okay, that makes sense."

It's #caturday!! This lovely friend lives down the road and is SO happy to see us when we walk at night.

a coffee review, i guess 

however, i failed to find reviews confirming whether the roast profile included "mother of all ashtrays" -- which i can say comes so very feckin' close that i nearly couldn't drink it. it's improved with sweetened condensed milk. maybe even better brewed in a moka pot, vietnamese style. ah well.

a coffee review, i guess 

my local roaster was out of the usual dark roast my partner enjoys, so i thought it would be interesting to try coffee (owned by the band green day); "father of all dark roasts", they call it. promised to be smooth and bold -- which it is.

i'm distracted from work. aren't ears fascinating?
