Darkly Dreaming Dexter

I love Dexter! Who doesn't? I also don't have Showtime so I'm 2 seasons behind via Netflix. No spoilers, please. Watching a series via DVD in marathon sessions is also more rewarding than a weekly fix for me. When I watch a disk I get to see the opening credits 3 or 4 times in one night. It gave me something to think about besides an average Joe guy that happens to be a vigilante killer. That chops up criminals. And throws them in the bay.

The opening credits are all about Dexter's morning sequence and he is such a good serial killer he has breakfast everyday. My concern is the order of events. After shaving he cuts a piece of ham steak and sears it. And eats it. Then he fries an egg in brown butter and breaks the yolk, serving with a splash of what I hope is hot sauce. And eats it. Separately from the ham. He then brews a pot of French press coffee and squeezes blood orange juice. I get the symbolism but blood orange juice isn't especially good for drinking straight. Dexter then puts on his shoes and lastly his shirt and heads to his job at the police station with too much SPF on his lips. At least that's why I assume his lips are always purplish-pink on the show.

Who cooks the components of breakfast separately and eats them in a similar fashion? Coffee cannot wait until the end either. It should be sipped leisurely while you ponder the crappy day ahead, or grill your significant other about their day to come, right?

I'm going to go make sure the air conditioner doesn't have any glass slides in it.

Since you been gone...

It's been nearly six months since I've blogged. I've certainly been eating and cooking in that time yet have developed a preference for sharing food stuffs through facebook. With share buttons and status updates from my iPhone, I can facebook in my sleep. Yes, I used facebook as a verb. Your point?

I will try to be here more often and not stress over including perfect pics with every post and not succumbing to the anxiety of thinking my every self published monologue will be the next cover story for the NYT Dining and Wine section. Can you see how stressful I can make this? I hope you'll come back & leave a comment or two so I don't think the only people that read this are East Asian autobot spammers.

Speaking of Spam - I've still never had it! I might have to change that soon. And blog about it.
