the BRUTAL, UGLY truth of my FABULOUS, BEAUTIFUL life.



---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

21:23 + 03.12.2007 = december spices and the beard that grows in half-blonde.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


i'm currently crockpotting the base for Min Norrbottenland Jul Glögg. [all this svenska! ursch!] [[basically: my norrland yuletime glögg... citrusy, vodka-y mulled wine. also, the jerry blankism "hot fruit" comes to mind.]]

water, burgundy wine, vodka, bourbon, cardamom pods, cinnamon sticks, cloves, sliced orange (peel and all), grated meier lemon peel, blanched almond slivers, raisins and sugar... crockpotting on low. 1.5 hours down. 1.5 hours to go.

smelling the concoction just now, i might've overdone it on the cardamom pod. [gasp!] m'eh.

one part strained-base will be eventually be mixed with one parts burgundy wine and port wine, 1/8 part vodka and 1/12 part dark beer [a nice belgian christmas ale really does a nice job]. then, it'll all be heated. and then poured over sugar into a mug holding a few blanched almonds and raisin.

it is only acceptable to drink this during december.

if i were in norrbotten right now, it'd be polar night and the sun would not rise again until sometime between magi day and my birthday. meaning, i'd be v. drunk. ...v. much the majority of the time.

as it were, i'm sipping the last of my whisky. i will chase it with a glass of the expensive port [not the shite i'll be using for the glögg], smoke a cigarette on the three-nearly-four-season porch, write a song and hit the hay.

i've an interview for kitchen shift lead tomorrow.

[[hmmm. maybe i should shave this mange.]]
