Harsh

To illustrate how harsh this is: I haven’t cooked anything in three days! N will have to eat pelmeni, like a typical Soviet bachelor when he gets home tonight. 

And the worst part is that the dang conference just has to be this week. I’m leaving on Thursday. I was so looking forward to the conference  (my close friend Ol.! Seafood! Romantic memories of Baltimore! CV clinic! Hotel gym! Red Emma’s!) but now I don’t want to go.

        • Almost. ☺ No, we lived right around the corner but Red Emma’s is where I started my blogging life. All of the early posts were written there.

          They hated me and N there, calling us “the Russians ” and trying to get rid of us at every opportunity. Good times.

    To complete the experience, if you have an extra room you can furnish it like this:

    Then you can invite some random drunk guy to sleep in the second bed and serve him the pelmeni on a big dirty, chipped plate like this:

    Kind of snarl when you slam it down on the table.
