On the greatness of MINT

Yesterday whilst painting I heard a show on CBC radio 1, called “Flavour of the week”. It’s a cooking show that devotes an entire hour to one flavour. Yesterday it was Mint. They raved on and talked to various chefs and bartenders about Moroccan Mint tea, Mohitos, Lamb with mint. Inspired, and with help from the mint growing in my grandmother’s garden, I made Moroccan mint tea. It’s really quite easy, just take some green tea, a generous helping of fresh mint, a few tablespoons of white sugar, all in a teapot. Pour boiling water over and let sit. It’s a very sweet tea, and apparently they drink it all day in Morocco (Milan can probably speak to this). Today I’ve aquired limes and am going to make mohitos.

It’s such a beautiful day, I can see the sea. Maybe I’ll get that Canon A550 and then you’ll be able to see it aswell.


The Plan changes again

So now I’m going to be in Chemainus at least a while longer painting, and I’ll probably get one or maybe 2 days on the show next week. Superfun! Maybe I’ll go to the wrap party!

I’m not sure about camping this weekend. If some people are interested, I’m game. But I’m not going by myself. Also, I might want to paint those days. Get in touch with me if you’re interested, as I can probably put off the painting till next week.

End of a (short) Era

So, on account of the producers being huge nOObs, I’m quitting the show. Also, because I’ve only been scheduled for one more day in the last 2 weeks. 1 day in 2 weeks? I think I can do better in Vancouver. I’ve got some painting to finish up tomorrow, but I think I’ll catch a late ferry home after diner. The late ones run half empty, way to go, MARKET. To be perfectly fair the ferries want to let the market take care of that problem by lowering the cost of late night ferries.

Since the best boss in the history of capitalism, (I don’t mind mentioning that his name is Robert Fucking Miller), quit last friday, work hasn’t been the same. The new ALM is nice, but basically he’s just a tool.

Anyway, see me back on the mainland soon.
