– As you probably know (because I like to mention it), I’m a fairly accomplished sandwich maker. I’m judging this based on the fact that other people’s (delis’) sandwiches always taste rather ‘meh’, and mine are awesome. My current favorite goes bread, honey mustard, organic sharp cheddar, tomato slices (lightly salted), baby lettuce, avocado mashed with garlic salt, bread. I lightly toast the bread (one side with mustard+cheese, one side with the avocado) in a dry skillet before adding the other things and putting the halves together. My mom likes to daydream about having her own bakery, but I think I would rather be a professional vegetarian sandwich maker.
– I got this crazy (dumb) idea to make a book out of my earliest blog posts (starting in 2000), and the idea’s turning out to really crazy (dumb). There’s no streamlined way to get the posts from HTML document to InDesign, so it’s a very tedious process. It seems particularly crazy (dumb) because I’m making this only for myself, but I think future-me will appreciate it. I’m not really reading the posts as I format them, but I do catch snippets here and there, and it’s remarkable to me how small the blogging community was at that time. Everybody has (or has had) a blog now, but it seemed so novel just a little over a decade ago.
– On a related note, what do you think college-you would think of current-you? I feel ridiculously lucky most days, so I hope college-me would see and appreciate that. She’d probably be a little disappointed that I’m not exponentially better at guitar, however.
