excuse my absence

le audrey being uncharacteristically belgian. (frank horvat)

my absence is due to my 15+ days in spain. in madrid i made the most of the 1 euro beers and bocadillos. in galicia and asturias the marzipan and almond-nut-honey sweets that come with january holidays, seafood with a crunchy shell and soft succulence inside, cheese both moldy and not, and being on the ocean front.  i had forgotten how much i love the spanish expression “es la leche!” translated as “it’s the milk!”, meaning rather “it’s the shit!”. just another one of those spanish eccentricities.

just ordered a yogurtmaker from amazon! (leonard freed time)

read three irish novels over break: roddy doyle and nick hornby-so, so good- and now working on paul murray.
