All in all, a good trip
All in all, a good trip
Just got back from a 2-day anti-spam congress in Cologne. Beats sitting at my desk...
Very good briefing from a guy from the US Federal Trade Commision about the CAN-SPAM Act newly enacted across there. Nice to know about such a worthwhile piece of legislation, especially since the biggest source of internet crud is the USA itself
After the session ended today, I had an hour or so to wait for my train. It was a sunny day so I planted myself at a pub next to the famous Cologne cathederal and ordered several (large) local beers; know as 'Kölsch', pronounced 'kurlsh' btw. Ah, the simple joys of eyeing-up summer-clad eye-candy...
I'm fit for nothing this evening

Mmm... eye candy.|
I'm straight, but I find most women are more aesthetically pleasing than most men during the summer. Men tend to be much too careless about summer garb and it detracts from their attractiveness to the eye.
Want some ceviche with that beer?

Well, when the weather here hits 20degrees (centigrade...), I default to t-shirts, and what I call my 'nut-huggers'; snug, 'short' shorts. I have naturally muscular legs and they do make women's heads turn. Actually, they make as many gay-guys heads turn as well, but that doesn't bother me. I would say that I am seen as more attractive in Summer, because I can expose more of my physical assets. That is going to sound cave-man to many people, but a) the attention is clearly paid and b) women get their tits and ass out in the Summer too P|
I haven't had ceviche for nearly 20 years. I used to visit a Cajun restaurent called 'Rumrunner' in the Midlands of England. Go on, gimme an idiot-proof recipe...

20C? Well, that must be warm weather where you are, here 20C is downright chilly. And yes, people are more attractive in summer because there's more skin to see.|
Ceviche for Dummies
1 kilo firm white fish (NOT mackerel!), chopped into 1 or 1.5 cm cubes
OR cleaned and deveined shrimp or lobster
OR octopus or squid
OR scallops or other shellfish
OR a combination of these.
1 large red onion, chopped (may be substituted by hot white onion)
1 stalk celery, chopped fine (leaves included if you like)
1 or 2 chili peppers, seeded and deveined, minced very fine
1 large clove garlic, puréed
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
salt and pepper
1 or 2 cups lime juice
Mix first seven ingredients in a glass bowl (do NOT use metal!). Add enough lime juice to cover, salt and pepper to taste. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in refrigerator at least 6 hours for the acid to cook the fish.
Serve individually in glass cocktail cups with soda crackers or in mini pastry shells on a platter. Can also be a party snack in a large bowl to eat with crackers.
Best accompanied by a nice frosty lager or pilsner (darker brews clash with the lime juice).
