I think two Manhattans were the best way to start the night. I instantly got into hand making the noodles for the lasagna when I got home. In Between swigs of my tasty drink (two cherries, not one) I folded the noodles in half and laid them out to dry. I smoked a cigar with my dad as the meal cooked; I’m still shocked by how warm it is in Virginia. The lasagna was perfect and I could not...

If only it were this easy.
a: I need to be in another business....
a: we could start a design firm and I could do the taxes, accounting and DJ during the day.
a: maybe get coffee too.
h: our tech/HR guy is our DJ
a: well, yeah, I could do that too...HR/Tech.
a: anything that doesn't involve real design work.
a: Other than casually opining on finished products
h: hahahahahaha. amazing.
a: don't get me wrong. we'd have an equitable compensation structure. I'd pay everyone really well except myself....because lets face it, not being bothered is worth ALOT!
h: well spoken
h: sounds perfect!
a: I would also have interesting side projects...like stealing the recipe for salted caramel hot chocolates from the local Starbucks....this would be a high priority....
h: dude your amazing
h: and you know what.. you would get a bonus for getting that recipe. Because you know what. I'm generous like that... and your family
a: no seriously. I would take one of the designers and just be all "look dude, I want you to go apply to the Starbucks down the street, get a job and you have 2 weeks to secure the recipe and ingredients necessary to make this beverage until we get tired of it. You are not to disclose the nature of this project to ANYONE". Then make them sign some random contract like an apartment lease and tell them it is a non-disclosure contract and send them on their way.
a: Yeah, big bonus for that one.
a: Next target would be the sauce for General Tso's chicken....
h: yes... that would be key.
h: I can see it now. Staff meetings with Salted Carmel Hot Chocolate and General Tso's..
h: that's an amazing meeting right there
h: can we have a bagel tree too?
a: oh fuck yeah.
a: we could have a forest....are you kidding.
h: wow.... a forest of bagels... I could be like a little elf running through the trees with a knife and a tub of cream cheese..
a: oh what dreams may come!

a: you know what i love
a: That song "She wants to move" by N.E.R.D.
a: Every once in a while I forget that line where they are like "Her ass is a spaceship I want to ride"
a: I am like "damn, I hope I marry a woman like that"
a: Just putting it out there
me: and there's that..
Melodramatic Recap: Brownstein Broads
fembot: Last night four young ladies made Brownstein Group history. The weather was ominous…but it was almost as if it was a sign of things to come. The rains cleansed the streets of Philadelphia and in turn, the misgivings of the past. It was a clean slate. And the glory was ours for the taking. The Brownstein Broads went head to head with Comcast in their first game of the eve. Beautiful,...
