So, I was on the phone with my financial planner, and nothing sets my mind to wandering like the talk of stops and puts and equity/fixed income allocation. Plus, he sounded pretty rattled. I guess when you see all that $$ go down the toilet, it's best to plead ignorance. "As I've always said [note to self: When did he ever say this?] no one can predict how markets will react."
As I tried, really tried, to listen to some strategic bunker plans, I started moving from one blog to another, and before I knew it, I was in some sort of food blog loop. I'm sure the starting point was Susan's Open Mouth Insert Fork, but who knows the twists and turns that ended up at Chinese egg noodles with beef and hot bean sauce. Doesn't that sound wonderful? And there's quite a list of ingredients that would take a day of shopping. Heck, I don't even have the egg noodles. Bean paste? Never heard of it. Sesame oil? Well, I actually have a bottle I never opened. Wonder if it's good after three years? Chile paste -- oh, I love hot spice.
And the picture is lovely. All this at Blue Kitchen. Oh, sorry, where were we... explain just one more time why a 70/30 equity arrangement is such a good idea.
