Weekend Info Dump

Friday night I had originally planned to go to a happy hour, but the general crappy weather made me decide to stay in. I tried my hand at making salted caramels, but I screwed it up, and they never set properly. Part of the problem was that I couldn’t get the sugar syrup hot enough without burning it using my crappy pan. I need a new sauce pan! I ended up with a decent tasting, very thick, caramel sauce, that would have been good on ice cream, but instead most of it went in the trash. I shall try again.

Saturday I spent the morning doing my Spanish homework at one of my favorite cafes, and I got home just in time to see the new Doctor Who. Yes, I know it’s not BBC America for another two weeks, but trust me, I watched, it and it was good.

Steven Moffat was always my favorite writer of the resurrected series, and this episode was as good as one could hope for. Of course it remains to be seen how the rest of the season pans out, particularly the episodes that he didn’t write, but I feel like the show is in good hands. And to quote my friend Steve – “Who would have thought 10 years ago that the Coupling guy would become god’s gift to doctor who after taking over from the Queer as Folk dude?” Indeed, indeed.

Sunday’s awesomeness started out with Brunch at Home, which features a ‘create your own Bloody Mary” bar. Good stuff. And from there it continued to me watching the 10th Annual Bring Your Own Big Wheel event, which conveniently took place about a block from my apartment. It was raining quite viscously, so I have to commend the crazies who risked life and limb going down the tight curves down steep Vermont St. Click though the image below for my entire gallery.
