With the course registration, I received a 10% store discount. I didn't think that I'd buy anything, but after some browsing I gave in. Here's what I picked up: espresso martini mix and rimmer (*snicker*), a measurement convertor magnet, a set of Hawaiian shirt coasters, and a really cool margarita glass.
I'm sure you're thinking, "but Micah, you don't like mararitas." I don't, but this glass is so cool that I plan on drinking everything out of it: vodka tonics, bourbon, juice, milk, Fresca, whatever.
On a completely separate note, I got home in time to watch the second half of the Richmond/St. Joe's game that was streamed on the internet. Boy, I haven't seen two teams play so terribly. Neither one broke 50 points.
mmm, beignets, cafe du monde, mmm. Here's a deal, you go to culinary school, I'll go get my MLS, you can cook, I can read and the world will have two less lawyers. I think this situation works out for everyone.
Sounds like a plan. If you pay my tuition, living expenses, and current student, then I'd say that we have a deal.
My name is Sabrina. I came across your blog website by accident, just browsing blogging sites, and I HAD to write to you. I'm new to this thing, so if this is against blogging etiquette, I apologize in advance. I, too, went to law school and have secret dreams of quitting my full-time lawyering job to go to culinary school. Seems like a waste of 7 years of schooling to the few people I admit this to, but hey, we can all dream, right? Just wanted you to know that there is someone else out there that thinks like you, and also your margarita glass rocks.
My blog site is ella88.blogspot.com but don't judge it yet, I just started today. :)
If you're not gay now you will be after you drink out of that glass.
I was out until after 1030 with my moonpie-adoring friend, so don't blame the game on me.
Sabrina - Thanks for stopping by! As far as I know, you didn't break any blogging protocols. :) Back in the day (oh, about 4 years), I had to choose between law school and culinary school. Obviously, I chose the former. I don't consider it a waste at all, though. I've met some great people and having another degree can't hurt. Just don't know if I'll follow the law career path.
Christy - C'mon, that glass is awesome. All the ladies are going to love me.
spydrz - I don't blame you. They played so badly that there has to have been a voodoo curse placed on them.
Hey! Thanks for writing back. I didn't mean to say that law school is a waste, just that certain people think it's a long time to go to school if all I want to do is cook. But I think that being educated helps you with all facets of life, and a law degree can only help even if you don't pursue the law career path. I also secretly dream of owning a bed and breakfast, and I can see a law degree coming in handy with contracts and liability issues.
I'll probably continue checking out your blogpage every once in a while, and feel free to scope mine out too. I can't promise that I'll have something witty and amusing every time, but right now there is a hilarious post that I just put up. Good luck with school!
Mmm beignets. I have wanted to try to make them for years! I make coconut fried shrimp and red beans and rice every year for Mardi Gras -- maybe next year I'll do beignets too.
You may have convinced me to take a Sur La Table class. That way I'll be able to get 10 percent off my most-lusted-for posession, a Le Creuset risotto pot.
Sabrina - The school part is about nine months behind me. Now I'm studying for the bar (2nd time) next week. Good luck with the B&B!
Kristen - I attempted to make beignets a couple of years ago. They were good, but not as good as last nights. Your Mardi Gras meal sounds great. My friends and I would throw a Phat Saturday (the Saturday preceeding Fat Tuesday) party each year, but that is on hiatus since we are all spread out. But it will be back. Mark my words, it will be back.
Oh my gosh. We're living parallel lives. I posted this morning without checking in with you. Seriously man, we've got to open a restaurant in the Nati or something.
I'll take care of appetizers, soups and desserts... you can be the mixologist and grill master.
I don't know, bud. Posting without checking in on me first? Points off.
Your blog is great! It's hard to find blogs with good content and people talking about culinary school these days! I have a secret culinary school blog if you want to come check it out!
Great job on your talk on culinary school. I have a culinary school secrets blog if you wanna swing by my place!
Excellent discussion on culinary school. I bookmarked your blog. I have my own culinary school blog if you want to take a look.
