Halfway off the ground

"...there are people who believe they are flying, but it is already an achievement if they can get off the ground flapping their batlike overcoats."
-I. Calvino

Well, I guess I'm ready. Mostly. Ok not entirely, but I'm a bit of a procrastinator and I've been able to cross off about 78% of the items on my to do list. The only things left are to go through my clothes one final time before packing them and finish up a few administrative paperwork things, pas mal! Tonight I'll be following in the footsteps of exactly what I did last year by having dinner with my dear and beloved friend Tony. What's on the menu? TLTs! (Tofu, lettuce, tomatoes!) I intend to bring the leftovers of my homemade authentic New Orleans red beans and rice (made with Barbs' recipe!) and perhaps a bottle of wine. Dinner with friends, true dear friends, is such a delight. And I'm afraid that's all the news from Lake Wobegon for the moment, stay tuned for one final post from America's Dairy Land before I fly off to my next exciting adventure in a foreign land.

Correction, darling: It was TEMPEH, lettuce and tomatoes. With a home-concocted garlic/onion mayo saucy thingy. Remember the peach you brought? And the frozen vanilla yogurt to go with it? Yeah, that was my favorite part (besides the two bottles of wine, duh).

What would your journey if it were all ups and no downs? Well, there could never really be any ups I suppose.

It was my great pleasure to once again play refuge in Milwaukee. You are always, always welcome. Miss you!


(Also, I don't think even this great meal topped the McVeggieBurgers and wine of the pre-France adventure. But, whaddyagonnado, right?)
