what a difference a day makes: the weather today was mild (40's), and steadily getting warmer until it was almost 60 degrees. i finally managed to procure a copy of leopard but i don't want to upgrade my laptop hard drive just yet because i still need to do work on my macbook pro and i'm afraid upgrading it would take several hours (restoring from backup and then installing XP through bootcamp). i'm waiting for a lull in my schedule or until this weekend.
a cream cheese bagel and a glass of egg nog fulfilled my lunch requirement while old-fashion spaghetti made my dinner. i actually went a little crazy with the recipe. i decided to add some chunks of sausage which made it taste like gumbo. i also sprinkled in some fennel seeds, because i like them, but the bits of licorice-flavoring was unsettling. what i ended up with was a sauce that was italian-cajun-indian.
