This is the big crunch time of year for me. I’m supposed to be doing a bigger show this weekend but it was super far away and I kind of ran out of fucks to give to be completely honest. Instead, I will be doing 100 Minute War mostly due to fat kid reasons – the chef who does day board is a chef in his “real” life so the food is amazing. But also because I am having a harder and harder time dealing with “the general public” at craft shows. If there are no food trucks, people beating each other with sticks, Pagans or punk rock music, I just . . .can’t. Sunday, we’ll be attending my nephew’s birthday party.
Hopefully, Jow and I will have enough energy after the party to start our video blog, Old Gods and Indoor Plumbing (which was long ago dubbed “The Deb ‘n Jow Cooking Show” by Gordon). We’ve been doing test shots to figure out the lighting and where to put the iPad (in the microwave and in the dish cabinet, for the curious) and you’ll get to see the chef stool in all its ugly glory. It will take me a little bit to get my shit together enough to pull together an intro and edit what we actually do, so hopefully a week or two from now. The plan for the vblog is to talk magic, cook something, demo magic without actually doing magic (a step by step), talk housewifery, talk glamour and prattle as we tend to do.
Our tentative layout for episode one (“Funnel of Love”):
Ravished Red Wine
Rare London Broil in Red Wine
