Hmmm? What?

Feeling better already...

Get your motor runnin'

I want to take a mental road trip. What is it about spring that never fails to deliver a lion's share of the blahs? I thought this shit was supposed to be about rebirth! Probably just allergies...

Daily Horoscope

Today you will wake up refreshed from the muscle relaxer you took last night because you kept clenching your teeth and couldn't "loosen your face." Your curiousity will lead you to attend the Yoga club at work during your lunch break while a rubbery Scottish girl on a mountain top tells you how to mangle your body after a long dormant winter. Beware, for this could be a sign of things to come.

After you eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich at your desk, you will not be able to resist the temptation of your coworker's birthday cake. Because that son of a bitch Mercury is in the vicinity, you'll grow increasing larger sharp pains in your stomach. But fear not, brave Scorpio, your stubborn nature won't let this misfortune stop you. You will pound through piles of work hunched over and clutching your waist and drive home trying not to vomit.

When you least expect it, a tall mysterious man will help try to stretch you out, even though that is not at all what you want. Birthday cake or strained stomach muscle? Either way, hours of being curled up in a fetal position is in your near future.

What does your horoscope say for today?

For the record: Knockin' at the door of Silver Foxdom

Let it be known for the record that this is the year that I'm going gray. I predict that that I'll be salt & peppah within the next five. I've stopped dying my hair due to massive lossage. The bathroom floor began to resemble a black flotaki (ew). Instead of looking toward holistic alternatives & hennas, I've decided to let nature take it's course. I can't wait until I look like this silver foxy lady above. Hopefully, it'll be sooner rather than later. I wish I could skip this in between scraggly stage and wake up with a head of gleaming follicles, à  la Leland Palmer. Ain't she a beaute??

Cakes: A Retrospective

I'm a pretty lucky gal. I've had some amazing cakes in my life.
Danger baby, Circa 1983
Fudge + Dom, Circa 2006
Dream cake, Circa 2009? Pleeeeeeeeease? 

I must say, this really takes the proverbial and literal cake. Meatloaf with potatoes and ketchup for icing. Like death row good. November is just around the corner!

2nd one in!

Yeah, I don't know either. But you can get these bebes here .

Don't know much about money, honey...

...but I sure love cheese! I can't get this story out of my mind.

The Credem bank in the small northern Italian town of Castelfranco Emilia isn’t your typical financial institution. Not only does it offer loans to its customers, the bank also allows them to use something interesting as collateral - cheese wheels.
Bank manager Paolo Benni says cheese deposits have been made for the last 80 years and that the bank holds about a tenth of the world-famousParmigiano-Reggiano parmesan produced each year.

“Clients deposit their cheese here and the bank gives a loan based on a percentage of its value,” he says.
”If a producer can’t pay back the loan, we can simply sell their cheese we have in storage and recoup our loss."

But the bank also has a culinary interest in the cheese, and helps in the aging process, which usually takes a minimum of 12 months.

Each year, the bank holds about 450,000 cheese wheels in two storage facilities and each wheel can fetch up to 2,700 euros.

Dear TMZ; Renee Tailwagger is fine!

Thank you all for your kind thoughts and well wishes for Bella's lump tail. It turns out that t'was not filled with cancer, rather candy, glitter, and magic... and fat.  (okay, just fat.)  Phew!

ps. Are you thinking to yourself, "By George! That is the most tasteful Blingee that I ever did see!"?

Happy 70th, BaBa!

Thanks for all the immeasurable sacrifices that you've made for our family!


Happy Sabbath!

Plug in your DVD players and watch this (if you haven't already)! I was never a huge fan of Bill Maher until I saw him in a leather tuxedo and this movie.  Mmmm, grilled cheese...
