fixity: ancient recipes

a fascinating bit about Libellus de arte coquinaria, a (roughly) 13th century cookbook, as based on a bit of historicizing.


kindred spirits sample new russian vodkas: the great vodka taste test. sadly my drink of choice, controversial as of late, was not included.

happy holidays

tonight marks our first christmas in boston and what better way to celebrate it (as non-believers) than going out for chinese food.

nina's been complaining that we are yet to find "good chinese food" in boston, so tonight we are trying the sichuan garden in brookline. i hope that it will be as good as the grand sichuan in nyc.

nina blogs her favorite music of 2006 and it's good. i only have one thing to add: synth pop!

the existence of this genre may be final proof that god exists.

sadly, olog has sufferred a touch of neglect over the past few weeks.

though no excuse, but we've been busy finishing papers, applying for a fellowship, and learning (caution: big words!) fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry as part of a larger project on urine proteomics.

meanwhile, work has been progressing nicely, and for the month of december we are back at a local institution, stomping out disease with both feet in its ER.

for all the nyny homies out there, come to puffy's next sat. it's been cleaned up recently but hopefully still b&t immune.
