Tonight’s kitchen victory: deviled chicken thighs. Followed by this afternoon’s partial victory: the blueberry/raspberry/tayberry pie didn’t hold together very well (but still super-tasty).

The Raven Tower was a fascinating little puzzle-box of betrayal, revenge, and metaphysics. Highly recommended.

What to read next? Recent releases are (in rough order of how long I think they’ll take to read)

Finished reading The Collector by Jack Nisbet, a biography of David Douglas, the naturalist of Douglas-fir fame. Almost more interesting as a window on life as a European in the early-19th-century Pacific Northwest.

It’s apparently Negroni week (it’s a hundred years old this month?), so I’m having one: equal parts gin, sweet vermouth, and Campari, definitely not to everybody’s taste.
