something I just found again

Posted by gryphn on December 24, 2008 in My bad writing |

Silence enters Magic unfurling Glittering pale What matters surrounds them What casts them out They care not for the utterances of others Their peace Their solace Within them The magic surrounds them Filling the with life’s light Movement no longer a torment They come together Flesh to flesh Slowly building passion What more to want […]


Snow snow snow

Posted by gryphn on December 23, 2008 in Life |

Well here we are close to Christmas and it looks like there might actually be snow!  I know I know you’re saying, “WHAT!?!?! Are you crazy?”.  I like snow though.  Please be aware that I said I liked SNOW.  I didn’t say I liked the cold, I said I liked snow. i know they go […]


Costa Rican Peaberry coffee

Posted by gryphn on December 22, 2008 in Food & Drink |

I think I’ve finally found my favorite coffee.  I tend to float around and drink whatever coffee is at hand.  I’ve had really bad coffee and really good coffee, but there was never a coffee that stood out and said, ” Hey you, yeah you! You want to drink me!”.  That is until I had […]


Root beer?

Posted by gryphn on December 20, 2008 in Food & Drink |

So if you remember recently I made root beer. And I just realized it’s still outside!  Crap I hope it doesn’t make the bottles explode. Anyway, the recipe for the brew called for 20 inches of pencil thick sarsaparilla root.  Well I didn’t have whole root, but I did have shredded and sifted root, so […]


Spinach-tomato-cheese curd soup

Posted by gryphn on December 19, 2008 in Food & Drink |

I know it probably doesn’t sounds the greatest, but damn it’s pretty good! I was going to have tomato soup for lunch today, but then thought ‘hey, I’ll throw in some cheese curds and it’ll be even better’. Then something unexpected happened.  The Spinach I had had in the fridge thawing called out to me… […]


Deep fried bliss

Posted by gryphn on December 18, 2008 in Food & Drink |

We cleaned out the deep fryer for the chimis we wanted to make and that led to all sorts of fatty goodness.  I love my deep fryer and now I feel bad for ignoring it.  I made beignet, those littel french doughnuts you get a Cafe du Monde in New Orleans, and smothered them in […]


Flour Tortillas…. mmmmmm…

Posted by gryphn on December 17, 2008 in Food & Drink |

Flour tortillas from scratch are fairly easy to make and they rawk hardcore!  I made a batch, without consulting my Mexica friend, which proved to be less than optimal.  I cooked them on the griddle for too long and they came out a bit … hmmmm… shall we say crispy.  We’re going to try again […]


the cp command in linux

Posted by gryphn on December 16, 2008 in Miscellaneous, Technology |

I like Linux and I like apple and I even like windows for the most part.  Now in Windows you wouldn’t get a change to the base functionality of xcopy, but here in linux world I have exactly that in the cp command.  it’s always been easy to overwrite a whole slew of files at […]


Root Beer… I hope

Posted by gryphn on December 15, 2008 in Food & Drink |

So I tried making root beer Friday.  I’m still waiting for carbonation to finish in the bottles, then we’ll see if it’s any good.  I’m hoping it is, but it seems a little heavy on the sarsaparilla. If I make it again, I think I’ll filter it through some cheese cloth.  There seems to be […]
