Not So Refreshing…

Not So Refreshing

You're in a fine French restaurant along the Normandy harbor. The day has been a tiresome one and you are ready to eat like royalty, the various, desiring forms of French cuisine already forming within your mind. Suddenly, a waiter arrives with a dish you do not recognize... it would appear to be some sort of dessert, or perhaps an aid for the change of palate? You take up the spoon, scoop up a liberal amount of the dish, and plop the mix into your mouth. The resulting taste is something you did not expect... an unlikely blend of creme with most overwhelming companions in flavor.

It was a cold day on the Normandy harbor and hot cocoa was the perfect companion for such a day. Made with the rich, dark chocolate common to France - it was... as my niece once pronounced, "WEE-FWESHING!"

Nintendo 3DS: Post Update

Remember my longest review, the one on the Nintendo 3DS? Well now it has gotten even longer! And there’ll be even more to come in the future.

Back to Regular Posts

I’ll be heading home soon, which means no more auto-posts! Look out for new reviews and more!

Busy, busy, busy!

Preparing dinner tonight, alongside my cousin – scrambled eggs with salmon, chives, and onions. With cookies for dessert, prepared with yet another cousin.

Have you clothed his neck with thunder?

25 At the blast of the trumpet he says, ‘Aha!’
He smells the battle from afar, 
The thunder of captains and shouting.

Blog Remodeling

Today the Adventure Writer’s Blog is getting a new look – the theme mystique! As well as providing a few new widgets, the mystique theme has an abundance of new features (such as a featured image, new post formats, etc.) and I am, at the moment, unacquainted with! Good thing I learn quickly… now to see what this theme can do.

UPDATE: Loving the features available with Mystique! May consider doing a weekly quotation with the quote format…

In a few days I’ll be off to see some family members that have just come up from Louisiana, and I won’t have the chance to do any blogging! Therefore, tomorrow I’ll be preparing a set of posts that will automatically publish each day until I’m back. Maybe I’ll even have time to throw in a review or two! Feel free to post comments on any of my posts, I’ll approve (or disapprove, in the case of spam) and respond accordingly when I get back!
