Smitten Kitchen

I ran across this site the other day and I'm afraid I may have found my new favorite blog. Entertainment Weekly said that the photos on this site were "pure food porn". Now that's right up my alley. I've been drooling over the photos and recipes on this site for a week or so, and someday soon I'm actually going to buy some groceries and make something.

First up just might have to be these pickled grapes with cinnamon and black pepper, or maybe these cottage cheese pancakes.....hmm, but this pasta with cauliflower, walnuts and feta looks super yummy.....oooh, there are just too many fun recipes to choose from. I think I'm smitten.

Republicans for Voldemort

Republicans for Voldemort

With all the "Death Panel" talk this week stirred up by Palin and Chuck Grassley (to name just a couple), I thought posting this photo was appropriate. It's completely frackin amazing to me that the Dems have capitulated on End of Life Counseling even though most Republicans (including Grassley) were FOR this type of counseling that was included in the 2003 Medicare bill. That's right, the Republicans were FOR these so-called "Death Panels" before the were against them.

Score one for Voldemort and his Death Eaters. I'm not proud to be a Democrat today.

Have I ever mentioned how much of a nerd I am?

I've always been slightly nerdy, "bookish" as my mom might say. I used to try to hide it, but as I've gotten older I've found myself embracing my nerdishness. These days I'll happily admit that I know exactly what BSG stands for (Battlestar Galactica for you non-nerdy types) and that its not usual for me to spend an entire Saturday playing a board game (that's ONE game, not games...and by entire Saturday, I mean from at least 10am to 10pm). On more than one occasion I've watched an episode of the Big Bang Theory and thought...yeah, that's my life.

Anyway - this is all to saw that I'm pretty much a nerd and quite possibly getting nerdier as I get older. So you'll forgive me if I jumped with joy when Netflix sent the first disc of the last season of BSG. And you'll look the frack away as I crawl into bed with the dog on a beautiful summer day to watch my show. There will be other beautiful summer days to enjoy, but I can't go one more day without knowing whether or not Starbuck is a Cylon.
