- Coolth. It is mid-summer and hot which makes me try to think of ways to keep cool. My technique is turning the southern exposure apartment into a black cave during the day while I am gone, and then kick up the oscillating fan once it has cooled enough to open everything up. Also, damp washcloths. Any other thoughts?
- Being us, specialty liquid libations? Very cold iced tea is kind of boring, but very refreshing. Oh, and I found that Yellow Tail now has sparkling wines ... white and pink. Not tried them yet.
- Weird snackage? I just bought some Trader Joe's Inner Peas, which turned out to be (as hoped) a near clone of Snapea Crisps (which my brain always wants to call PeaSnacks -- not a very enticing name). These are pea-pod shaped formed snacks made from ... peas. Salty and oddly tasty.
