- I mentioned this on Facebook this weekend, but if we are not friends I think it bares (bears?) repeating. Is there anything worse than spending 90 minutes of your Saturday going up and down every aisle of Costco playing bumper cars (on the last day of the coupon, by the way and damn if people don't come out in droves to get $1.50 off of all 800 of those rolls of toilet paper) only to pilgrimage all the way out to your car parked in Siberia for a fierce game of Trunk Tetris? Man I hate that. As someone who always tried to force the square peg in the round hole, that shit makes me tired! If there is something worse than this can you please tell me, so that I can think of it the next time I'm swearing at my car like a lunatic while people pass by asking me how long I'm going to be so they can decide if they want to play parking lot shark on my spot or roll the dice on a better spot. Thanks.
- Have you looked at the March Issue of Cooking Light? There are like 900 recipes that I want to make, immediately. Actually I made one last night (with a few switch-a-rooskies) and I may have to post about it this week...it was THAT GOOD. There was also a fabulous article in it (oooh and look, it's online too!) about The 25 Most Common Cooking Mistakes that I thought it was super informative. Nothing extreme, just a really good reminder of basics, but I definitely picked up a few tips. Anyway, while I'm playing link-master, check out their Recipe Index for March. It's a total Jackpot!
- I finally finished 500 Days of Summer and it ended up being ok. I didn't love it, but there were definitely some cute parts. I'm convinced that anyone who didn't crack a smile during the entire Hall & Oats musical section has a cold black heart. I fracking LOVE Hall & Oats! Don't judge me. I was also pleasantly surprised to find that Joseph Gordon Levitt, who I had previously put in my Famous-People-With Irritating-Squinty-Faces category (see also: Renee Zellweger and Josh Hartnett), has seemed to grow out of that. He was a pretty adorable regular-guy leading man. Granted the last time he even registered on my radar was in like 2001 when I was living in LA and got free tickets to see an episode of Third Rock From the Sun be filmed, so he probably deserved a break -- I'm pretty sure that was probably his most awkward adolescent phase, and come on, that is a phase by which no one should be judged.
- Speaking of awkward adolescent phases, I've been scanning a bunch of old pics lately and getting a real good laugh. I may have to post a few here if you promise not to be too brutal.
