Down here in the south it's currently my very favorite season. CRAWFISH SEASON! That's right. We classify seasons by food. Gumbo season. Crawfish season. Snowball season. And well, football season (I'm aware football isn't a food type but we eat a lot of food during that time so let's just calm down with the technicalities people).
Yesterday I went to a crawfish boil with Samantha and her family. As you know, Samantha is my bestie that I met in graphic design. While I'm here at school (away from home) her family has been like my second family.
We ate lots of crawfish, corn, & potatoes and played with all the babies. I can put away some crawfish. I'm talking like 7+ pounds. A normal person will usually eat around 5 pounds at a sitting if they're really hungry. But hey. No shame. You burn off all the calories in the crawfish by peeling them...right? It was really hot outside and the spicy crawfish did not help the situation. I was a happy, sweaty mess. And my fingers are still raw from all the peeling but I wear my shredded fingers like a badge of honor. It was totally worth it.I also finally found a beer I can tolerate (and even sort of like). Abita Purple Haze is a wheat beer with raspberry puree added after filtration. You can even see raspberry pulp in the beer! It's no pinot noir but it'll do.
Now back to the real world. I have final critiques this week and two finals and a research paper the next week. But then it will be summer time and I have no class. And I'm also going to see Swan Lake (yes the actual Russian ballet!) with my mom and friends in between the finals weeks. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!
