My sister "headlined" at a poetry night thing! Got a great response from the crowd. Her poems are great already, but they really kill as spoken-word. With the voices and sometimes-songs and explanations (which may or may not average 12x the length of the poem itself).
I made sourdough bread that's actually like sourdough bread! After consultation with my Granna, it seems that I let the first rise go too long, but the point of this recipe is to let the flour soak for a long time, to break down the antinutrients in it. And that's supposed to happen during rise #1. So. I don't know how to get around this. Maybe a different type of flour would work out better. It ended up pretty dense, but did bake all the way through, so I'm pleased. Great for sandwiches.
We met our new landlords and saw the new house again. Good news! We still love it and are wicked excited to move in! Also the landlords are super nice and want to fix tons of stuff! We'll see whether or not they have the time/money/energy to actually make these repairs, but whatevs. We signed the application for the as-is house, so any upgrades they do are just bonuses for us.
Potentially handy: the wife kept telling me about the neighbors and their histories. Eventually I realized the neighbors she was talking about were either dead or didn't live there anymore. Because that's how super old people roll. WHAT DO YOU MEAN SOMEONE ELSE LIVES THERE NOW THAT DOESN'T MATTER. At least I now know which houses to avoid for possible hauntings (read: the house directly behind ours holy EFF).
