Happy Monday! Hope you all have a great week ahead.
Some things last week:
The 11-year-old recently joined a jazz band. He plays the piano and is one of three 5th-graders in the group, the rest are teenagers. They practice every week and once a month, they perform at a local pizza place. He’s enjoying the music but still has a lot to learn when it comes to jazz piano!
Hacks! on HBO Max. I really like this show about a legendary Las Vegas female stand-up and a 25-year-old entitled comedy writer. It’s smart and funny, and has an older female lead.
Still listening to Qian Julie Wang’s Beautiful Country.
Eating and Drinking:
I had some leftover steel cut oatmeal for breakfast.
We have more Indian food leftovers. But I’m thinking of cooking some claypot rice this week (traditionally done in a claypot but I don’t have one, so I cook it in my rice cooker). It’s a seasoned rice with Chinese sausage, chicken, and mushrooms.
Chew volumes 8 to 12. I feel like I was in a bit of a reading slump over the past week or more. So I read a lot of these Chew comics.
