State of the Monkey

It’s been ages since I posted anything substantive here. For the most part I don’t really make use of LJ anymore, other than occasional technical rambles and random assorted bitching. Still when a huge life-changing event occurs I like to talk about it a bit. For those of you just catching up, Nora and I are now officially married (w00t!!!!) as of 9 April 2011. My praxis after such huge events is to dissect it so I can fully understand each individual component, but I find myself unwilling to do so here. The day is hazy and wonderful and I would fight to have it stay that way in my memory. I’m normally bothered by trivialities…plagued in fact many times, but the small things that were off during the day hardly even register. I’m just overjoyed to be married to Nora and that’s enough.

[locals] Signal Boost – Roommates in the Camberville Area

I have a friend from VA moving up here in the fall to attend Lesley University for her Master’s degree. She’s a 30-something friend, stable, reliable, laid back. She’s looking for a place to live in the Cambridge neck of the woods. Are any of you guys seeking roommates or know someone who is? She’ll have a car so if you’re a little outside Cambridge I imagine that would be OK too. Respond here or drop me an email and I’ll make with the introductions. Thanks much 🙂

Vegan Banana Bread

Documenting this here so I don’t forget the recipe and lose it. I haven’t actually tried the bread yet but assures me it was delicious.

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3-4 very ripe bananas, mashed well
1 cup white flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup almond milk, mixed with 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar (let it stand for a minute)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon cardamom
1/2 teaspoon salt
zest of one orange

Mix together the sugars, vegetable oil, milk, vinegar, spices, salt, and zest. Beat in the mashed bananas. Sift in the dry ingredients and beat until combined. Pour into a greased/floured bread pan. Bake it for around 70 minutes at 350 degrees.
