What to do today…without spending any money? The hubby’s off to coach Science Bowl downtown (go Harvard Westlake! destroy those North Hollywood sons of bitches!), so I’ve got about 12 hours of uninterrupted Day to fill. Options! Lay on the floor in a kiddie pool full of video games Do the same in a pool of books Try to plant a garden in a bed of kitchen compost and cigarette...
Still according to the blog, the local blog network will be filled with content...– The New York Times Expected To Launch Local Blog Network On Monday (Confirmed) Hm. I think they finally figured out how to copy the Gothamist network.
tesslynch: So, I recently (yesterday) e-mailed the people who make Drank because I’ve been stalking them since last June (seriously. On Blogspot. Because this finger’s on the pulse) and am really wanting to try their relaxing soda. They’re (awesomely) sending me a press kit, and as Molly suggested over AIM last night at 3 AM, I intend to video-blog the experience and review the can of magical...
there's some heavy shit going down at the laist...

Why Did WeHo Ban Foie Gras?
Hey guys! I am not a loser! I wrote something for LAist for the first time in months. Basically, I am a libertarian advocate for forcefeeding animals until their livers are plump and fatty like a fourth-year sorority girl.
Hosea’s $100,000 can’t buy him imagination or intelligence or his hair back....– Top Chef Ends. Rash of Self-Inflicted Fork-Into-Eye Wounds Reported (via britticisms)
It’s important to keep busy, I’ve decided!!! I got up at 6:30 with Kevin, as usual. I spent the morning tweaking my resume & cover letters and sending them out to likely candidates for employment. I have an appointment with a staffing agency Monday. (Yes there was some blank staring and mindless feed reading, but that is just my personal productivity style. I need BREAKS.) The...
Benefits of Joblessness
Guilt-free Facebook browsing! Ability to go outside. Brushing up on your resume skills. Stress-related lack of appetite: those final five pounds will be gone in no time! Three-martini lunches with sympathetic pals and parents. Blogging. Constant blogging.
What do you do when you don’t have a job? Like…what do you do for money? that’s a serious questions. I’m really serious here.
And…. I’m fired. Welcome to Unemployment!!!
thank you Tumblr
i really really really…I don’t even remember.
Oh I see how it is, universe!!! I see how you wanna play it today!! I make a solemn pledge to cut out frivolous internet use at work today, and what happens when I get home??? INTERNET CONNECTION SUCKS!! I hate you.
Well, THAT was just a day.
I am a hungry kitty
Working late also means there’s a verrrrrry good chance I might pop over to The Hungry Cat for a late lunch/happy hour. The Hungry Cat is actually a really good place for a solo lunch or dinner — just sit at the bar, order some oysters and some cocktails, and enjoy a book. I kinda wish they offered their fries as a separate side…oysters and fries, YUM.
I’ve switched up my schedule a bit at work, so Mondays I’m home until 10:30am and then work 11-8 (not a bad way to start a week, I must say). So I took the time to put together a bagged lunch for myself…healthy and delicious Salami-Provolone Roll-ups! One whole wheat lavash, cut into two pieces Two large slices of salami (sandwich sized) Two large slices provolone Two whole...

Tessipexperiment: Beef and Pickle Tacos
tesslynch: I’m going to try to re-create the Malo recipe in a few days. I’ll let you know how it works, but it’ll involve: 1. Taco shells 2. Ground beef 3. Taco seasoning (or improvised with chili powder, onion powder, etc) 4. Dill pickles (or sweet! Hey, we’re grownups!), sliced and chopped 5. Shredded sharp cheddar 6. Dollop of sour cream 7. Salsa fresca on the side, or tomatillo salsa...
I have no idea what’s for dinner tonight! It was grocery day, though, so I just took a load of pictures of my fully stocked kitchen to help me “brainstorm.”
I love it when lamb vindaloo is so spicy it makes you a little high. WOAHHH ENDORPHINS!!!
shutupinternet: Bruce Springsteen - 4th Of July,...
Well, but — we stayed up late listening to Werner Herzog tell bedtime stories! He is both soothing and electrifying, like a good crazy grandpa should be. He read to us from the Poetic Edda (the catalog of dwarfs specifically — and what a remarkably proficient Old Norse accent he has!), and told the story of descending into a bank vault to touch the Codex Regius — the seminal...
Oh hai guys, what you been up to today? Oh yeah, that’s cool I just got home from a nine-hour day standing on my feet, worrrrd. All I’ll say is that it’s verrrryyyyy lucky I really like my co-workers; 7:30am on a Saturday is ALWAYS painful no matter what.
