Friends, Food, and TV

Special Ed pointed out that I haven't been posting enough lately. I've been storing stuff up in my head, and now I'm ready to put it out there.

My friend Sacha, who was such a pretty bride last summer, turned me on to Chocolate Guinness Cake. It's from Feast by Nigella Lawson and can be found here. It's pretty easy to make and a good thing to take to holiday parties.


My version of the cake

Other lovely friends have their own magic to share with the universe.

The good stuff:

Colleen's lego porn;

Xui and his sports;

H17 and his sports;

Speengrrl's review of ANTM; and a

Noteworthy Dirty Dan piece on music and drinking.

The next best thing to friends is TV of course. Besides America's Next Top Model, I'm loving Veronica Mars. It's the best noir being made these days. I get confused at times by the characters and plot, but at least I don't have to make my own chart. UPN has done it for me. On an embarrassing note, I was, once again, near tears at the happily ever after conclusion to this week's Nanny 911.

I love me some VM, and just about died "the little death" when Willow and Cordy did their cat fight last week.

is nanny 911 the one with the british nanny in the mini cooper who teaches tough love techniques to overly indulgent parents?

Little death. Wow. Sach, I don't know about the mini cooper. The show has a main British nanny who deploys one of three nannies to the rescue. Spleengrrl, I don't have any choice but to watch antp. Poor me.

Doesn't it also clash with Veronica Mars, or is that after? So glad I had no clue when this show airs, until now

Special K, i’m not sure how i feel about the nombre “Special Ed.”

and i don’t know much ‘bout V-Mars, Top Models, Jay-la, or Nanny Nine-Eleven.

i do, however, got a bone to pick with that misguided friend of yours.

i’ve said it before; i love Sacha like a sista. she certainly was a beautiful bride and I think she has exquisite taste. tragically though, i think when she fell off the swing set at Nokomas Elementary, she may have bumped her head harder than we all thought. on account of her unfortunate condition, i was able to overlook the whole Wal-Mart thing—no hassle, no criticism, but JOE NATION??????????? wtf? i mean, WTF?????????? read the back of the card, sista! c’mon, you’re smarter than that.

FYI -- bfquifbqx = Ed. I think he's special because he's my brother. But I'll respect his wishes.

Sach, I told Ed about your job. Now he's getting personal. Sorry. Next thing you know, he'll be calling you Special Sacha. But Special Sacha isn't as funny as Special Ed. Neither is Special bfquifbqx.

OK, for the record, ED: I'm no fan of Joe Nation's, if only because he tried to pass off an anecdote from Primary Colors as his own in front of me, but Lynn Woolsey? She doesn't even have a cute rhyme like Barbara-Lee-Speaks-for-Me does, and she is tired, tired, tired. And a religious refusal to even set foot in Wal Mart is the reason Democrats lost the White House. So there! Love, Sacha

can't we all just get along? isn't it better to bond over tv shows about models than to let trivial things like politics divide us?

c’mon, Sacha… what kind of name is JOE NATION. hello, my name is Ed Republic. Vote for Me. just wait til he starts hitting on you like the guy from Primary Colors.

and the day that every red-blooded American finds an excuse to shop at Wal Mart is the day the terrorists win. Go back to France Ms. Monpere.

so right back atcha!

I just want to say that I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll. Because I've always wanted to say that.

Why all the rabble rousing?

Project Runway is my Wednesday crack.

I never would have agreed to watch the final episode of the Top Model thing if I had known that they think that bouncing is a bad thing.
