Jareth "Bah"

Brewing today, and more tomorrow.
Tonight I carried home six pounds of fresh apricots, and got to work on them. Then, I brewed a cup of black tea too bitter to drink, and added just the right amount to each container. Wine is like life- it needs a little bitter with the sweet, or you sometimes lose perspective.

Received a notice in the mail from the OLCC today that I won't be coming in for a final interview. I was sure I would be.
Making it through two rounds of exams and one interview isn't bad, though.
I also got to talk again to a coworker at my old job. Apparently those that weren't let go got their pay cut. Not just a little cut, but but by more than $2/hr. And frankly, making below $10/hr would not pay my student loans.

Today I went over to see the Trinity, and the Laurelhurst neighborhood was having its annual neighborhood yardsale. I ended up walking away with one of those hideously expensive cuisinart food processors for $15. There shall be hummus.
I just wished I'd had $1000 to drop on furniture, though. For those not in PDX, Laurelhurst is one of the nicer neighborhoods- and some of the mini-mansions had some nice furniture out. There was one guy who'd obviously furnished his home entirely in things from Design Toscano, and was now selling them off for really inexpensive. He had the swan fainting couch that they don't carry anymore, the one that used to go for $2999 IIRC. He wanted to part with it for $190. It didn't sell before he had to pack it in for rain, and I know which house it was. He also had the matching bench, and a number of other delicious things.
