heart disease now only $5.49, plus tax!

holy jesus christ on a f-ing sesame seed bun, this is disgusting!

hardee's has just announced its plans to sell the monster thickburger. which consists of, and i quote " two 1/3-lb. charbroiled patties, topped with no less than four strips of crispy bacon, three slices of American cheese, and some mayonnaise".

i'm a little slow on the draw with this one. but thanks to emdot, my cats now have their own webpages on catster! (thanks, emdot!)

here are the links for ms peel, fujiko, clouseau and the bumblepants herself,ava.

yes, we have four cats. yes, it makes us certifiable.

more seasonal gifties

i'm hard to find presents for, i know this. this (and the fact that the money spent would be best sent to a charity, like, say, this one (warning: crappy site) or maybe this one?) is why i insist that you don't get me presents!

but for those of you who are still insisting upon getting me something here are some more ideas! heads of state silkscreens! (found via plainsimple)

i like detachment kit, sputnik, cat power and rogue wave.

but, you know, you've got better things to spend your money on.

i heart heart cookies

tonight alton brown, the host of "good eats" on food network, was at davis kidd bookstore in memphis.

but instead of plunking down $25 (u.s.) for the "privilege" of meeting herr chef, i decided to just make some cookies instead.

specifically a recipe from claire crespo. here's how i did it.

sarah cihat makes very cool rehabed dishware!

and i can buy some of them in memphis! *eeep!!*

dead or "larry king live"?

every time i flip past "larry king live" and see a celebrity or head of state, i always wonder if that person is dead or just being interviewed by larry king.

surely, this doesn't happen to just me....right?

more books

a better name for citizen girl by emma mclaughlin and nicola kraus would be citizen hurl since my overwhelming urge to vomit precluded me from reading past page 34.

it also begs the question, why does it take two people to write such a steaming pile of crap?

the wit and wisdom of quentin crisp, however, was quite witty and urbane. which is what one would expect from quentin crisp. i cannot wait to get my grubby little hands on more of his writing.

trying not to jinx myself

yesterday was horrible.

stinking, rotten horrible.

but today, i may have found a way out of the unfulfilling rut that i've been stuck in for nigh on two years.

no details yet since i don't want to jinx myself. wish me luck! (i'll stop being so vague once i've worked out the facts!)

baking question

my friend has a birthday this week and i'm trying to make a cake from scratch for her.

why, oh why is it nearly impossible to find a cake recipe that also includes a recipe for the icing?

file under "poor me! *boo hoo!*"

todayborday is a working day. not that i really care, i could use the money. it's just that, it being saturday and cold and all, no one is going to show up. (my job is contingent upon the appearence of other people. i cannot administer a test to a void.)

so it will be a 45 minute communte to sit for 15 minutes and then another 45 minute commute home.


at least i'm able to charge the company for two hours.

holiday flavoring

not to be outdone by last year's turkey and gravy soda, jones is releasing a five pack of holiday flavors this year.

the pack includes cranberry, mashed potatoes and butter, green bean casserole, fruitcake and everyone's favorite, turkey and gravy.

it goes on sale tomorrow online and in select target stores. here's the link but if you get some soda and i don't heads will roll.

and i don't mean buttered roll either!

many thanks

lots of love to leff who helped me get a leg up on the pile (and refinance my dreams) with this blog's appearance.

thank you! thank you! thank you!

small things

*the elevator in my building is squeaking like some sort of machinery from 1900 that hasn't been properly oiled. i live next to the elevator and this noise is starting to drive me a tad bit nuts.

*i purchased a new brand of deodorant yesterday and am not used to how it smells. so every time that i raise my arm i keep wondering why the apartment smells like flowers.

*bill bryson's i'm a stranger here myself: notes on returning to america after twenty years away is an amusing read. i would highly recommend it.

*sean astin's there and back again: an actor's tale is not. i can't believe i wasted part of my life on that book.


finally some bands/people worth listening to are playing in memphis.
holly golightly is at the hi tone on nov. 10th and the hives are at the daisy on nov. 28

of course, if i want to see sondre lerche, i'll have to skip town. which doesn't look like it's gonna' be happening. (sad emoticon)

this city bites. i can't wait to move.
