1. I am a sheep! My johari window. Though I agree with folks who think that there are some key adjectives missing, there; I mean, where's practical, funny or anything indicating a sense of humor other than "silly," intense, sarcastic, and so on?

2. [redacted because about work]

3. Thursday I made an excellent apple-pear crostada, which I'm really proud of, because it ended up not just tasty but attractive -- I usually don't snag any points for presentation. Today we're doing cherry-ricotta muffins, which our recipe says should "taste like a muffin taking cheesecake lessons." Where's the bad there? Mollie Katzen's Sunlight Cafe rocks my baking world -- people critique it all the time for being "not the kind of breakfast people eat now," apparently implying that we should all just give up on breakfast except for a cup of bad coffee and a doughnut, but the muffins all keep really well in the fridge. And are nummy. (This is the source of our recipes for lemon-ginger-pear muffins, which kick ass, and for blueberry muffins, and ... actually, I don't think I've baked anything in months that didn't come from this cookbook, except for cookies.)

4. For Valentine's Day/end of examiness, I got [livejournal.com profile] m_shell some Charles Chocolates. Charles Chocolates rock so, so much. We were offered some for free at the last BEA -- hand-outs of a Don't Know Much About Wine sort of publisher. Anyway, the pate de fruits were kick-ass, and the chocolate bars fantabulous, and the chocolate almonds really, really good, and we just sort of hovered there for a while going "oh, the passionfruit one!" and so on. They are far above my normal chocolate price-range, but really good, and now I can say that the mojito heart with mint infusion and lime? Wow.

5. Snow. We may even get "thunder-snow." Fortunately, we have hot chocolate and lots of Netflix.
