JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #163: Oll Korrect

Oh let's see ... this past weekend has been okay. I guess Friday was pretty fun with Dead Blue Hand and Eddie Nebula and the Plague at Water Street. They were forced to play in the crappy music hall side where the sound is really bad and there were "only" about 75 people there which is practically empty. Spacetrucker was there too but we didn't stay for them. Sondra had showed up and she, Anne and I headed to the Krown and then stayed up until about 4 or so.

Oh yeah, and that GarageBand site is kinda broken. I guess they ran out of money. Too bad I spent any time at all making the little icon.

So far I've still been not drinking. I think I'll start again this Friday. I thought it was kinda funny that I stopped on 1/11, so I figured I'll start back up on 2/22. I really don't anticipate drinking very much. I'm kinda liking the not drinking thing. It's a little boring now and again, though.

Not much of a segue (and certainly not a Segway(TM) worth over $50,000) ok ... it's not a segue at all. I made some home-made macaroni and cheese the other day. See, I went to Wegmans for groceries and wanted to get some cheddar. I picked up a quarter-pound brick and it looked okay ... aged four years ... until I realized it was $12 per pound. I put it down but thought, "what the heck," and bought it anyway. I got it home and chopped it up and found that it had little hard bits in it so it wasn't very good.

So, mac-and-cheese it was.

I tried making white sauce but screwed it up like I always do, adding way too much flour and then trying to thin it out with more milk and water. I eventually let it slide and just left it really really thick. There's a lot of cheese in it and a little Tabasco sauce and pepper and paprika and salt. It ended up pretty good. Of course, compared to a Kraft dinner at a buck-fifty, this batch is probably more like $10 or so. I guess it tastes better ... and no little crunchy parts.

In other news, y'all should clear your evening calendars for March 2. Well, okay, it's not that big a deal. Nonetheless, the Dryden will be showing the quirky Harold and Maude. It's one of those movies that sort-of nudges you along in a different direction in life. The woman who played Maude, Ruth Gordon, was born in 1896 and passed away in 1985. There's some amazing quotes listed on her IMDb page including gems like,

The great have no friends. They merely know a lot of people.
and
The kiss. There are all sorts of kisses, lad, from the sticky confection to the kiss of death. Of them all, the kiss of an actress is the most unnerving. How can we tell if she means it or if she's just practicing?
Heck, they might as well have been spoken by Maude.

According to The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language (Third Edition, Houghton Mifflin Company, 1992) The word "OK" was first used in publication 163 years ago in 1839. "Much scholarship has been expended on the origins of OK, but Allen Walker Read has conclusively proved that OK is based on a sort of joke. Someone pronounced the phrase all correct as oll (or orl) correct, and the same person or someone else spelled it oll korrect, which abbreviated gives us OK."
