Of paralegals and prasadam

Work continues to go well. I'm working on a very dull project of data entry, but since I have immense Microsoft Excel skills, I will still have chances to shine.

I'm being very social. A number of the paralegals work out during lunch with their large library of exercise DVDs, so I've started doing that. Today, however, I went to Govinda's with one of the paras and the IT person. The IT gal is Vietnamese, of a religious persuation that eats very particularly vegetarian. Govinda's is the Hare Krisna restaurant, located in their small and very pretty compound off Speedway. (Everything in this town is off Speedway Blvd.) The compound consists of three saffron-coloured buildings surrounded by a matching adobe wall. The restaurant is a buffet, and I got a box to go for Steve's supper. I had yellow basmati rice with tomato sauce with seitan (don't like the texture of seitan; must remember that), green beans and potatoes, a samosa and semolina halavah. I'd forgotten how much I love Vedic food. I also took a moment to go into their itty bitty temple and say hello to the deities. Krishna helped me out in the 90s, so it pays to be polite.

It's been raining the past two days. Wet creosote may smell sweet, but it kicks my asthma into overdrive.

At the end of tomorrow begins the Caturday, and it's a bonus Caturday due to Leif Erickson Day/Canadian Thanksgiving on Monday. I hope our turkey is thawed by then!

I regret never having visited the temple on Avenue Road and Dupont (and the meal).

On a more positive note, yay for bonus Caturday. I'm hoping for sun (please, universe) but will settle for well-cooked turkey and lots of other yummies.

A local cult in Seattle ran a vegetarian restaurant. I don't think they were Hare Krisnas. Damn good food, but I see it's been closed for awhile. People who ran it were weird, but harmless. So they pray over food? The thought's always nice, even if they pray to different gods than I do.

There is a Govinda's in London, best vegetarian food in the whole city :)
