Say It. I Dare You.

My teenager friend was shot in the back. No one knows if he's alive. His friends and other neighbors are trying to call the hospital. Everyone's outside crying.

His mom is a wonderful person. He and his Dad have pushed my car out of the snow more than once. I've known the boy since he was two. He cleaned my yard, and I was going to try to talk him into painting part of my little house over the summer.

I can't effing believe this.

I feel guilty hoping so hard that he survives, because it means another kid will be dead, instead. But I really want him to be okay.

Please please please let him be okay.

I am having HORRIBLE "well, why not? We just might end-up getting married and being very happy and our kids would be really smart and funny" thoughts about my best guy friend lately (the straight one, obviously, not the gay one) to the point where I don't even want to see him because he sees RIGHT through me and I feel like he'll know what's going-on in my head.


This has to just be boredom and panic and lonlieness talking.

This is my favorite part of the pre relationship! Its so nerve wracking and stomach clenching!

I would not be surprised to find out he feels the same way, so don't totally rule it out!

I really think this is just due to boredom because nothing else is going-on and I'm starting to panic about being alone and there he is!

Thank you all.

I want to go back in time a day and delay him from getting on the bus this morning, even though he'll be really annoyed when I make him hold my dogs and they get him muddy. Even if the police are called. Even if I have to take off my shirt and tear at my hair like a crazy person: I want to go backwards so that this never happened.
I've got my fingers crossed for him, ninja. And now my legs, too.

...It's a siggie.

Thank you, w_s.

I wish this whole thing was just a Buffy storyline that everyone decided stunk and so it was dropped or Spike did something to stop it or somehow the dead teen and my friend and everyone else involved were werewolves and were okay once the moon wasn't full.
Severely understaffed as we are, I have my usual Monday (and often Tuesday) on which I get to set up all the hot stations and cook all the hot food. Here's some of the new food. Thankfully it's decently slow, so it doesn't get too hectic and I can actually stop and take a few pics after I put up all the food:

Magret duck breast (Brussels sprouts leaves, red wine gastrique, pistachio praline, black rice risotto)

Barley and squash risotto (pan-roasted cauliflower, dehydrated fennel)

I had a salmon pic, but the lighting is terrible on it thanks to the glare from the heat lamp (runner was rushing me so he could take it).
A bit of silliness about "vegetarian offerings":

Stop it! Stop. STOP!!!

Godamnit, stop referring to him in the past tense when you don't know what's happening. When it's just a ****ing story you have to cover as part of your job. Stop trawling the neighborhood for tips from neighbors and stay away from the family at the hospital.

He's a boy who has hardly started his life yet. Leave him alone. Leave his family alone. Leave all of us alone. You've already got your death, so **** off.
Oh Ninja, how terrifying I'll keep everyone in my thoughts.
I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

He's gone.

I'll never get to see him again.

No one will.

He was murdered.

There is great grief here among us all.
Oh ninja. I'm so, so sorry.

Ninja, I am so, so sorry. I gasped when I just read that. How awful.
I am so, so sorry ninja. It's just so senseless and sad.

I'm so sorry, ninja. This kind of tragedy takes all the other words away.

Omg, I am so sorry Ninja. My thoughts are with you. (((hugs)))
Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.
Damn, on the economic scale, I should be living in a cardboard box somewhere and begging for pocket change.
And this is why as much as I love food and couldn't see myself doing something else, I would never advise anyone to get into this industry and why we all laugh at the contemptible fools who talk about how bored they are with their stable jobs and want to change careers to become chefs.
