    So, FRANCE.

    Speaking of biere, I went to a beer/wine bar/retail shop and snagged a few brews to take home with me. Yeah I couldn't resist.

    So, FRANCE.

    A few days ago, I marked my first month living in the French countryside. My school's been arranging all sorts of trips so we can experience the culture outside of the usual staples like Paris (though we did spend a couple of days there). And so far? It's been one hell of an experience...

    Recommend great cheeses thks.

    Cacio de Roma is a good soft cheese if you're into the sharper stuff. Also, for the brie lover: Holy shit is this good stuff.

    So I'll be Working/Studying in France this Summer

    A little background first: Most of you guys know I enrolled in culinary school this past spring, and while it's tough, I'm having fun with it. Well, the school has this program where they send eight students to their sister school in France while they send eight of their own to Houston. I...

    I'm Going to be a Cheesemonger.

    Thanks guys :D I start on July 8th. My manager asked about proper "compensation" (ie, a raise) due to my increased commute, and they said after 60 days. If I'm what they're looking for, I'll get more money. It took me a while to get back into it, but I say go for it. Or at least do...

    I'm Going to be a Cheesemonger.

    Yesterday, my manager tells me about a couple of positions that opened up at our main (and HUEG) downtown store. The deli/cheese dept. needed some full-time cheese prep people. He told me because I'm going to culinary school and that it would be a great opportunity for me to get my foot in the...

    Tobacco-Flavored Vodka.

    I wish I was joking about this. The Ivanabitch rep was doing samples at our store today, and I overheard her talking to my manager about a new vodka flavor that's due out soon. Apparently it's menthol tobacco-flavor. She kept going on about it, saying it tastes amazing in bloody marys and...

    Congestive Heart Failure and Dying Cats. The Past Two Months Kind of Sucked.

    It's been a pretty rough year for me thus far despite the good stuff at my job. For starters, my dad began coughing constantly. He stopped taking his blood pressure meds because they made him cough, but because he stopped, he coughed even more. What happened was his heart started going into...

    A Discussion about Punctuality. (Or: Why the FUCK are you always late?)

    This is one of my major pet peeves. I'm a punctual person. I don't like making anyone wait, and if I am gonna be late for whatever reason, I call ahead. Conversely, I'm also pretty patient. I know not everyone is going to be on time, so I try to give people the benefit of the doubt...

    I'm Still Alive. (Also, Work News)

    Yeah, I'm hanging in there. I haven't been around much due to mi familia's suckass internet. I hope they get a better plan soon because I miss torrenting everything. Other than that, I've settled into Houston and got a job with the state's giant liquor chain. I don't work past 9:30pm and I'm...

    The League of Average Joe Travelers: Vancouver, BC (With Bonus Food Porn)

    Last week I visited fabulous Vancouver, British Columbia. It was my second visit and I actually got to see more of the city this time around (my first visit was for an anime convention). I spent most of my trip drawing, hanging out with my generous friend/host, and kicking back. I did only a...

    I'm Looking into Forming a Will. Suggestions?

    NOTE: Let's get my disclaimer out of the way. No, I'm not dying. At least not that I'm aware of. This has been on my mind a lot lately, ever since I came back from visiting my family in Houston a few months back. I realize that I need to get a will started before it's too late. I'm writing...
