Early In The Morning

So here it is, 7 am on the nose. I’ve been keeping my usual unconventional schedule of working overnight and finally decided to take a break.

Yesterday was a good day, all in all, I managed to get a lot of work done while my new housekeeper did her usual excellent job — for those outrageously busy or domestically challenged {like me} in the Charlotte area who need someone to do a truly great job of immaculating (my word) your house, I would highly and without reservation recommend Nicci of Tally Rags (check out this website, Nicci does the vocal).

So here I am, sitting in front of my computer, decidedly calling it quits for “the day”, sipping coffee and brandy and listening to what can only be described as an ultra-mellow playlist — currently, in keeping with the hour, I have a few morning songs going, ie the Monkees’ Sometime In The Morning, the Sandpipers’ Come Saturday Morning and Vanity Fare’s Early In The Morning, and reading at some other blogs.

Among them, The Pugil Stick, The Educated Shoprat and I’ve been attempting to blogroll a great site called Conservative News And Views, the current Blog Of The Week at The Liberal Lie, The Conservative Truth, but BlogRolling seems to be having some access issues at the moment.

Nevertheless, CNAV will get blogrolled as soon as I can get in there.

While for those on more normal schedules breakfast, that first cup of coffee and so forth are the items of immediate concern here on the east coast, my own next major event will be dinner. I’m kinda sorta leaning toward broiling a Cajun seasoned (cheating, I have some Luzianne Cajun spice) 1/2 lb. strip steak with Zatarain’s dirty rice as a side dish. I just got a new stove, one of those ceramic topped (electric, no coils) ones with a self cleaning oven (H/T to Jeff and Bob for delivery and installation), and have been treating it like a new toy, it’s awesome, all the bells and whistles, etc.

Well, ravenousness dictates, so….

    Have a great Thanksgiving, Seth! I hope you enjoy your new stove. I have one of those, and it’s wonderful not having to clean around the coils. Stay mellow! :)

    Gayle -

    I’ll be in Curacao for Thanksgiving, so I won’t be able to avail myself of the pleasures of my new stove, LOL.

    But… You and family have a great Turkey Day!

    Seth, Take a look at Taranto’s column today? He listed a great headline.

    Frenchwoman May Be First to Lead France

    Taranto’s comment:
    France may finally get a leader

    Thanks for the link

    I have frequently used Zatarain’s in my cooking expeditions in the kitcken. My housekeeper however, is more commonly known as Mrs. Gawfer. A tight ship she runs and with great pride we share our home with wonderful friends.

    Enough babling for the Gawfer.

    Civil Truth –

    Segolene(sp?) Royal is a dedicated socialist, surprise, surprise, she’ll fit right in as the boss over there. The fact that she’s doing so well indicates that the French (spit!) still haven’t learned from their mistakes. They deserve all they get. :-)
    I just woke up and could not find that in the linked BOTWT, which I try not to miss; However, I am currently on the first few sips of my first cup of coffee, LOL. I’ll look again shortly…

  7. Seth Says:

    Shoprat –

    It was a good post. :-)

  8. Seth Says:

    Gawfer –

    When I lived in Nawlins, Zatarains seemed to be the shortcut favored by most of the natives I knew, as well.

    I’m glad they distribute their products far and wide…

  9. Seth Says:

    Civil Truth –

    Ah, found it. Amazing what a few gulps of strong liquid caffeine will do for the awakening mind.

    If she ends up running agaist Sarkozy and he beats her, I may end up revising, at least slightly, my attitude toward the French (spit!), as it will demonstrate that they may, just may, finally be starting to wake up (I’ve liked Sarkozy, at least somewhat more than the rest of that lot, ever since his remarks re the animals who applied their Islam to the French car insurance industry last year).

    If they choose Royal to lead them, however, all bets are off.

    Uh, Seth, I wouldn’t make any efforts to change that attitude:

  11. atheling2 Says:

    argh! why can’t I make links???

  12. Seth Says:

    Atheling2 –

    Don’t feel bad about the links, even with excellent tutelage on how to do links in my own comment section, I still can’t get it right, LOL.

    The link worked perfectly out of the comment notification.

    Royal is insane!
