Report: Day 28 

My last meal was a rousing success. I invited Bevin over to share it with me because let's be honest, my last meal would be a dinner party, death row or not. Bevin arrived dressed in orange to simulate the garb of fellow prisoners and enhance the prison theme of the evening. "I will be the prisoner you sometimes chat with on death row who you have never seen except through my reflection in the polished underside of your dented tin cup!" she explained. She was also wearing a button shaped like New Jersey with a little flashing light where Camden was located. "They have a prison there. In Camden," she explained. The flashing light certainly added a little glamour to the event.

On the menu at my final meal was a wilted spinach salad with goat cheese and mango topped with chicken scampi. Ordinarily it would have been shrimp scampi, but I had a guest who was alergic to shell fish so adjustments were made. To accompany, mineral water and a Domaine Carneros Le Reve Sparkling Wine, vintage 2001, was served. Dessert was a creme brulee made with Splenda as Bevin is currently on a low carb plan. Mine was topped the traditional way with carmalized sugar creating a delightful crunch, hers was topped with a bit of melted low carb chocolate which she agreed made a suitable substitute, though we did do an experiment in which we attempted to carmalize Splenda. In case you are wondering, Splenda does not carmalize, but it does catch fire and turn to ash.

Today I'm supposed to save a stranger's soul from eternal damnation Benrick style.
