Wishing everyone a wonderful holiday! I’m working tomorrow, so I’m cooking tonight. So far, it smells really good.
Am workin’ a 10-hour shift tomorrow, so: wishing you all a wonderful holiday. Tonight is my night to cook: no new schedule yet, so I’m cooking for the weekend: a baking dish of stuffing topped by chicken parts, with gravy on the side. I bought a stalk of brussels sprouts plus turnips (with the greens attached!) and a bunch of potatoes to mash up with the turnips.
On to the fun part:

Something different this week. The NYT always has some interesting stories in its travel section, and I’m going to post quotes & links to some of the more…adventurous…of them.
For example, there’s whitewater rafting down the Nile:
WHEN I showed up to go white-water rafting in Uganda, Josh, the Canadian rafting guide who stood barefoot in board shorts and looked like a hardier, hairier version of Brad Pitt, greeted me with a simple question: Wild or mild?
My advice, if you’re ever going to do this, is to choose wisely. Because the next thing I knew, I was upside down in an infuriated patch of the Nile River, a ceiling of white water above me, all those tranquil birds and flowers along the banks a violently disappeared memory and Josh screaming, “Dude! Watch out for the rocks!”
We plunged. The curl of a wave lifted our boat straight out of the water and flipped us upside down like an egg in a skillet. But instead of immediately popping back up, a bunch of us got trapped under the raft, with the rapids pushing it down on top of us. It was terrifying, because there was no way out. I kicked. I thrashed. I felt as though I swallowed a gallon of river water. I started thinking of that scene at the end of “Titanic” in which Leonardo DiCaprio drowns. And then, pop, the raft shot away, and I broke through a fury of white water and feverishly gulped for air. That’s when I noticed everything was a little fuzzy, which leads me to casualty No. 2, my right contact lens. Gone. I spent the rest of the trip squinting through one eye.
