I Cried My Thais Out

So I was adventurous yesterday and decided to make Thai food for the first time ever...

(Thai food involves capsaicin, right...?)

So I chopped ginger, pulverized cilantro, added 3 seeded and chopped jalapeno peppers. The onions were next (I promised myself I wouldn't cry). I chopped determinedly, only to burst out in tears, well, not really, but I welled up pretty good. Off to the bathroom to daub with a Kleenex. Back to the kitchen. Damn eyes are still wet. One pinky swipes under the right eye.

Holy CRAP!!!!

Jalapeno oil under the eye is almost as excruciating as boureeing for two hours dancing a Willis in the tragic full length ballet Giselle with an angry corn wedged between your third and fourth toes. And the pain is almost as long lasting.

All I wanted was to have a nice (new) dinner prepared when Ray came home from 5 days in Anaheim and NY. What did he get? A Tammy Faye lookin' puffy-eyed leaky mess in his upstairs bathroom with half a dinner made in the abandoned kitchen.


It was damn tasty though.

Next time I'm wearing goggles.

I'm up early this am with blogging on my mind (not NY - sorry Billy). Trying to make this look more full and lush. Right now it feels like a teenager in her first swipe of maybeline, and I want RuPaul.
