So, word has it that we are going here this weekend. Maybe. I like the idea of lots of vodka, as always. Plans -- so up in the air, but I know that whatever we end up doing, we will have a kickass time. I do not get to see these girls nearly enough, so I will kill if I have to in order to ensure fabulousness.
1) Planters Deluxe Mixed Nuts, why are you so delicious? You are peanut-free, but full of delicious, tasty cashews and almonds of goodness!
2) Marcia Cross (you know, Kimberly from "Melrose Place"?) is going to be on another show! Oh man, I don't give a shit about the new show ("Everwood," doesn't that have poor, washed-up Treat Williams in it?), but how nice to hear that she is working again!
3) I think you have to agree that I have been a pretty good sport by not mentioning this whole treason from the Bush administration thing. Anyone who wants to go head to head with me on this one, please, read the linked article and tell me about how it is all just crazy liberals who hate Bush. Because it is an impossible argument to make. OK, fine, you think that the election in 2000 was on the up and up. Fine, you think lying about our reasons to go to war was peachy keen. But seriously, this is bad. Exposing, for obvious political revenge, an undercover CIA agent whose entire job was to work against terrorism, even you wacky excuse-makers must admit that things look very bad right now for your booooooyfriend, El Presidente. I should have known that if you give a man enough rope, he'll eventually hang himself, even if it is a man who happens to be President, and instead of rope, you mean, allow high ranking members of his administration to betray his country in the most despicable, base sense. (And I would just like to point out that I personally would feel plenty more comfortable defending a blow job than treason! Oooh, treason, I wonder if Ann Coulter is on the case yet?)
1) I am as neurotic about my sushi as the next hideously demanding bitch, but I think this memo on the matter takes things a bit far. Hee.
2) Is there a reason that no one has joined HSX with me as their referral yet? Could someone share that reason with me? I need more money to pretend-invest in Die Hard 4! Come on, there is no pleasanter diversion that I can think of! Way more entertaining than goddamned Friendster! Less intellectually taxing than the Times crossword! And more suited for the lazy than volunteering for the Dean campaign (though you should definitely do that too -- and you can use your spare time to help me drive up the shares of Michael Moore's new documentary, a political action of sorts!).
Inspired by the delovely Anna, I too have decided to make a list of food that totally grosses me out.
1) gravy (blood and flour, mmmm -- no, wait, the opposite of that)
2) bananas with any brown spots on them
3) milk-based alcoholic drinks
4) figs (thanks to a very graphic documentary I saw in childhood)
5) milk and pepsi a la Laverne
6) sweet potatoes
7) iced tea (no explanation for this one)
8) kiwi fruit
9) a whole variety of meat products
Oh, and in other important news, I am 15.38% geek on the hated Geek Test that everyone (read: TJ and Erin) is talking about. I think the majority of my score is comprised of my love for Buffy, my intimate knowledge of Food TV and my recreational reading of Russian literature. Hmm. Well.
Here is why I am such a nerd, part #758973: tonight I am seriously looking forward to spending time organizing my insane, anal-retentive recipe binder with my insane, anal-retentive clippings from Eating Well and Gourmet and Cook's Illustrated. And, of course, those recipes I get from websites (especially the fabulous Eat, Drink and Be Married). Yes, I sit there in the living room with glue stick and scissors (often decorative-edge scissors!) and colored paper and have at it, making visually attractive little organized-by-ingredient pages encased in nice plastic folders.
