indeed, hold the toast. and by “hold it”
i mean “eat it for yourself and serve
the rest”. so madeline got homefries
and b (taters, onion, package-taco-sea-
soning; b obviously), whereas i had a
little of each plus a fried-egg sand
(eggs fried in baconfat, buttered toast,
the shot with lots of glass is “before”;
the other is “during”. and shows off my
“put little projects on flat surfaces
to be moved around the working area”
technique at work. and half an egg sand.
and some dirty dishes. the taters are
still in the pan.

pancakes today (from a box;
add milk & egg; grill in a
buttered pan; serve with
maple syrup & butter).
bacon. ice tea (real;
she) & coffee (instant;
me), milked & sugared.
that’s it so far but some-
how there are a bunch of
*dishes* from other feedings.
also i colored in this sketch
(“desargues’ 2-triangle theorem“)
from one of my old “moleskin”
pocket notebooks. and scribbled
a remark about something i hadn’t
noticed before (one can “collapse
a [primary colored] triangle onto”
the [secondary-colored] “line at
infinity” to get a “fano diagram”
[aka “rainbow space”]). no, wait.
i lied. i also had some mozzarella.

the barbarian i am. we go through
quite a lot of cheese. in part
because it’s one of the few “real
food” items to be *found* at the

i’ve been posting a lot
over at Virtual MEdZ.
but nothing much here.
the cooking continues though
if not the cooking *show*.
today’s my last day of work this semester
at th’ Bigstate U.. but, as the MEdZ activity
suggests, i might go on doing some mathy stuff
anyway. & *maybe* some eps of the cooking show.
happy labor day.

i promised porcellino when he passed through here a few months ago, but i’d spent all my money, that i’d order one of these. in the event, i made madeline do it since pretty much any god damn thing i try to do online sets off hours of helpless rage and despair. i’ve still not seen the movie and probably never will. god damn it. this used to be so fun and easy.

it’s back to its usual set-up
(low five strung in the positions
of the high five; the tuning machine
for woody’s sixth was long ago bent
down into uselessness trying to stop
a buzzing) now a few days later.
tuned either as E-A-D-G-B (“the obvious”…
though really it’s not *so* obvious) or
as *if* A-D-G-B-E (the *apparently*
“obvious”… this would be the “usual”
tuning, with the sixth string missing).
this works out, let’s see, to a “concert-
-key” tuning of E-A-D-Gflat-B, duh (now
that i think of it; lower the second string
by a “half-step”; that’s it).
anyhow the upshot is that its the “obvious”
first tuning that’s weird to play…
i’ve got to keep reminding myself to
mentally move each fingering “up one string”;
in practice sometimes i’ll just fake it and
get (ordinary first-fret) E-major by just
kind of “thinking A-minor instead” and then
just transpose “visually” from there.
and it’s the second, “*apparently* obvious”,
tuning that’s easier to *play*. even though
i’ve computed the names of its notes only now.
new strings by madeline and the net. thanks, honey.
