I think most of my LJ friends are posting when I’m elsewhere, and gone when I’m here. I feel like I miss some good stuff.

Today I picked up our adoption physical reports from our doctor. Damon and I go to the same GP, so that made it convenient. We got tested up one side and down the other. I had to go back because the first time I couldn’t pee in the cup. I’m not squeamish about peeing in the cup, I was just empty. Since moving to NY I’ve developed the habit of running to the loo before I leave any building, as it’s always possible for transit to take much longer than you’d like. And no one wants to be trapped underground with a full bladder. But that’s no good when the place you’re going will want you to pee in that cup.

Anyway, the second time was a charm. We’ve come up free of any worrisome, or even interesting, conditions.

We had our first visit with the social worker, which was easy and low stress. We met for coffee near NYU, where she’s the head of the social work department. I think we’ll get along with her just fine.

I made the best little snack tonight. I had a small bag of fingerling potatoes that I bought at the farmers’ market — red, yellow and purple. I cut them into thirds, tossed them in olive oil and then sprinkled them liberally with sea salt and pepper. I popped them on the bottom rack of the oven at 450 degrees for about 10 minutes. Then I turned off the heat and let them sit in there another 10 or so. The didn’t last five minutes once I took them out. The skins had a nice snap and the flesh was soft but not mushy. Delicious.

  1. I bought some small potatoes (little bigger than fingerlings) and I’m gonna cook ’em like you described. They’re in the oven now.
