Week 49 - Fortynine Err Esperia

Had to wordplay but had no reason! There's the err.

Esperia though, it's a small cozy Greek restaurant somewhere in Södermalm. I had a pretty nice dinner there (like a Christmas banquet, but without the banquet, or Christmas) with my main job this week. Three dishes. Kefalotiri (grilled aged sheep cheese) with oregano and lime. Grilled sea bass fillets, dill cream and marinated beetroot with fried potato slices, Tzatziki, and bread, with Italian iced tea with lemon and honey, fresh water and red Amethystos wine. And to conclude: lemon and mint sorbet with a dash of Prosecco. Delicious.

I rarely get to indulge in fancy foods, but when someone else finances the event it's alright! A real treat. Should definitely eat out a bit more often even when I'm paying though - and not just fast food if I do. This dinner didn't just taste great, and offer some entertaining conversation with good people - it left me feeling fresh and healthy, invigorated by ingredients of (I imagine) much greater quality than those you'll find at the local supermarket.

I'm even starting to speak differently, in embellished tone, feeling like I'm ambidextrously pending between a normal, working class style of life and a finer one, like that of... politicians, maybe.

Imagine expensive restaurant food being a norm. Being boring. Away from the all-but-cozy claustrophobic cage of a one-room business apartment you'd otherwise spend a meal in, as you live lavishly under the city neon, interacting with foreign agents of international creeds, both a benefactor to and a baron throned above the lower-class hired hands feeding the consumerist pyramid scheme we climb, raining debris as we claw our way upward - making a mark, watching as all crumbles below us.

Well... nah, that doesn't seem like the type of person I want to be. I imagine. Though I wouldn't mind eating food like this a bit more often... even if it is the rarity that makes it so appreciated.

We went bowling at Rock & Bowl, Mariatorget too, before this. The bowling... went alright. Should definitely do that more often too. And compete more. Play under pressure. I feel like I'm the kind of guy who plays worse when I play worse, and I expect to play worse when I play with people who I expect to be better. And if they play worse... I play worse. But I ranked second (out of six), so that was alright too.

Overall it's been a good week, with varied weather and this weekend: snow! :D After about a week of dark nights and slush winter's finally back again.

Cyberdevil's Back is finally on the site too, but those other projects... coming soon™. I have been working with the site, but lately work goes slow and days pass fast. Not enough D-Vitamin? Too much One Piece manga (I picked up the first book on a whim and I'm eighteen books in today)? Too little sleep and/or exercises? Maybe a combination of all.

If you need some motivation btw, try this.

Find one path. Take it. Last week. Other stuff. And that GOG sale went pretty well. Peace out.
