3/4 c milk
1/2 c water
1 c flour
Mix all together, whisk to remove lumps. Let rest in the fridge for one hour (so the bubbles go away--the batter will be good for two days). Add about two to three tablespoons batter to the pan (buttered if you like), run around all edges of the pan (like when making an omlette). Cook for thirty seconds on each side and voila! I may change this recipe. I am going to make a new batch tomorrow. Here are pictures:
I hope to learn more about crepes--maybe read some articles or something. All three of you out there who read this, forward me along any information you may have about crepes. My stepmom is trying a gluten-free version that I am very curious to hear about the results.

The French can make even corporate sushi look cute. It's a gift, I swear. So I found an advertisement for this place while checking out the website of a bar where a co-intern is playing tonight, and I was drooling all over the place. OMG why is sushi so good. I think part of it is the texture (i know, nasty, but it feels sooooo goooood) and part (mostly) the soy sauce/wasabi--never fails to quench my salty craving. Ok, so back to the point of this (yes, believe it or not, there is an end in sight), check out one of their desserts:
omg omg omg...ok dad and any adults who are reading this, close your eyes, but this is a food *****...you know what word is supposed to go there. Oh wow seriously it's hard for me even to type this, I'm so overcome with joy and envy and hunger and over-active salivatory glands. This is why God invented globalization, for beautiful masterpieces of combined culture such as this one here before our eyes. Bliss, pure salty chocolaty Franconese bliss. Amen.

I am so so so excited for the new and last (tear) season of LOST to start!!

Have you gotten caught up yet with all the seasons? Did you hear that Obama rescheduled just for the premier?
I dont know if you remember Sean, Lilou's bf, but they broke up and so now I dont know if it is appropriate to see him for lunch or whatever or when I go to visit...
Its really warmed up here, ok, its like forty five, but that feels really warm to me! Dad and I tried to video chat last night--it wasnt very successful and it was hilarious. I'm thinking about becoming a garlic farmer. I've decided that if I get into Northwestern, I'm gonna get another tat. Probably of your name across my ass crack.

We went to Le Marais, a very picturesque neighborhood in the 4e arrondisement right by the Hotel de Ville metro stop. Great shopping (sadly a little out of my budget), gay-friendly shops, and the Jewish neighborhood all comprise of this little hideaway just east of the Louvre. We got really yummy Jewish savory pastries (filled with epinard (spinach) and feta) at Kozcars (spell?), a seemingly family-run bake shop. So yummy.
In front of the Cafe Madeline, Saturday morning, when we walked to my office (which is also right by the Madeline).
I live in Montmartre, a hotspot for many tourist attractions like Sacre Coeur and this, The Moulin Rouge. I have never seen the movie, but if you ask me, Molly and JP kick Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor's company any day.
I think JP or Molly has the only pics of all three of us together. It was so so great to have them here even if my apartment was a little cramped. They left this morning for Budapest, Hungary, and I wish them all the best on the rest of their travels.

Inside my kitchen, dicing up potatoes and a leek.
look at how pretty this garlic is! Purple inside!
Some unsuspecting passers-by seen from the window in my kitchen. Of course, I have a view of the one construction site in all of Paris. :( sldkfjLOLlmafaosdifje!!LOL
Well, the movie is about to start and I'm sick of being in McDonalds (do you think he's Irish? Or Scottish? Mr. McDonald?). Ok write me.
