Chilli Edamame: mmmm

Vessel Wednesday:

Last week we had dinner with Amsterdam friends at Toko

All the food arrived in beautiful vessel after beautiful vessel.
I was thinking documenting this dinner would set me up for a couple of months worth of vessel wednesday material, but I gave up photographing after the pre-dinner snack as the boys were hungry and asked me pointedly whether I was planning on shooting every course? Whereupon they fell upon the food like ravenous wolves.
So the Edamame bowls will have to suffice.

Food and service are great, it's actually worth a visit just for Reni Kung's light sculptures (no website to link too alas).
I think it was walking around afterwards in the literally freezing cold however that gave me the laryngitis.

HP-free zone

If anyone else feels like a salmon swimming upstream against the tide of popular opinion when it comes to the HP phenomena, then you've found a safe enclave here.
I've nothing against JK personally (in fact I say "Good on her"! ), or indeed the legion of people who find enjoyment in the books.
It's just that everyone needs a quiet place away from the ubiquity.

Edamame! I love it! Beautiful vessel this week.
If I could submit to Vessel Wed., it'd most likely be something as banal as a bicycle water bottle....

As far as HP---
The craze will die down soon, no fear.

Thank you, Carson.

Someone. Who. Understands.

(not that there's anything wrong with it).

Nice bowls, baby.

he he. We walked past a guy from the bookstore early on Saturday morning as he made his way home post-launch. All he said was: "Don't say Harry Potter!". It's been making me smile all week.

Aah, a port away from the HP storm...may I join you? (though I do feel a bit like getting the cellar ready a la those wacky English Reformation days...you know, just in case any rabid Hogwarts fans find us)

Gee, blog as safe house; how cool is that? Personally, I wish I could stay linked to this post until the fervor dies down. It's tired, having to give my favorite book store a wide berth.
