This morning is blurry like my head. I suppose that’s what Sunday mornings are for; allowing yourself to be blurry.
If you don’t already know, flank steak is probably the easiest cut of beef to grill. Easy, quick, and forgiving. Marinating it makes it even better. My favorite way to use flank steak is for carne asada. I love the different variations of marinades that you can make for it. Even better is indulging withContinue reading “Grilled carne asada”
This morning, I made marinade for Carne Asada. I love the smell and taste combination; cilantro, lime, garlic, jalapeño, and (for this recipe) some soy sauce and apple cider vinegar. My hands still smell like cilantro and garlic. It’s wonderful.
One lever that simultaneously moved the carriage back to the furthest left position and moves on to the next line. It’s almost the equivalent of winding up a toy right before you let it move in the way that it was meant to move. One of the biggest draws to my selecting the three typewritersContinue reading “three carriage returns”
It’s not that I didn’t know that herbs, like cilantro, flowered. It is, after all, part of the reproductive cycle. It’s just that I have never seen cilantro flowers before. They’re beautiful.
I love how light and portable this is. Not necessarily shown in the video, I can get some good rhythm and speed on this. I’m learning that these machines, more so than computer keyboards, really depend on the typist knowing proper typing technique to work at full speed.
I am hooked on watching Kenji Lopez-Alt’s Youtube channel. He’s doing a series called “Kenji’s Home Cooking” where he uses a GoPro, worn on a head-mount to give an overhead perspective, as he cooks and narrates through the steps. A few days ago he grilled bratwurst and sauerkraut, which inspired me to do the same. It’sContinue reading “Indulge those cravings”
I picked up another typewriter. With two typewriters, I suppose I can now call myself a “collector”? As I’m learning more about typewriters, I became curious on what a Korean typewriter looked like (with Hangul characters), and how they worked. This, as you can imagine, led me down a few rabbit holes. I found thisContinue reading “My Clover 302, made in Korea”
Had some leftover meatballs and marinara sauce, a sandwich roll, a GoPro, and a lot of time on my hands. Lunch! If I continue with videos like this, I need to 1) work on camera angles (and having different kinds) and, 2) really work on my editing skills. UPDATE: I re-edited and uploaded the video.Continue reading “Cooking video, first attempt”
I have had the Smith-Corona Clipper for a little over a week now. I have typed at least one page each day. As you can see, I’m still getting used to key placement and overall operation. It’s definitely a lot of fun to use. Look at those sausage fingers!
I noticed that the combination of the Clipper’s keys and my heavy-handed typing chews up the paper. I got into the habit of spooling a few sheets, behind the main sheet, to protect the paten. At least until I can train myself to be lighter on the keycaps.
Above is my birthday present to myself, a 1946 Smith-Corona Clipper. I ordered it online from someone in Tucson, AZ. It’s in pretty good working condition, though the “?” key has become disconnected— I suppose I can’t ask any questions until I can fix it. I chose it for the classic look of the blackContinue reading “A new project”
