TND – Irregular Verbs

I am a self-confessed list maker.  I’d say that the first step is admitting you have a problem, but I don’t actually think that my list-making habits are problematic.  Possibly this makes me a functional list maker?  I have lists of books I want to read – cross referenced by whether I’ve managed to put a reserve on it in the library system.  I have lists of future Dinner menus (which should not be confused with my pinboard account which is essentially a list of all recipes I have made or recipes I want to make).  I have lists of places I want to eat in cities I plan to visit sometime in the next year (currently indexing for Austin and Portland if anyone has suggestions they want to send me).  Suffice it to say, I’m a girl who likes a list.

TND – You Say Cheese, I Say Fromage

May 22, 2014

It’s time to talk cheese people – both metaphorical, and literal.

Yet another year of Eurovision has come and gone, and I remain disappointed that no network in the US airs it live.  I have, however, noticed more and more references to it, so I am cautiously optimistic that someone somewhere will understand the genius of Eurovision and air it so that I can have a viewing party some year.

Now, you have to understand, my criteria for who/what I think should win Eurovision essentially boils down to who gives the most balls-to-the-wall crazy-cakes performance.  None of the songs are even in the vicinity of good, so that is never a deciding factor.  And, if I wanted tasteful, well I probably wouldn’t be watching Eurovision.  So what I look for is a group who really commits to the insanity.  I want vampires who turn into boats, and dancing gumbies, and twins in futuristic pompadours (all of which have featured in performances in the last three years alone).

TND – Breakfast of Champions

I asked my aunt about my mother’s strange aversion to grits.  I wanted to know if it was something that my mother had inherited from my grandmother, or whether it was her very own personal (baffling) quirk.  My aunt confirmed that it’s an idiosyncrasy entirely personal to my mother; and that in fact my aunt makes a mean shrimp and grits.  She did add that despite living in Virginia that it wasn’t something they grew up eating much because in the South it’s traditionally a breakfast food and breakfast wasn’t something my grandmother typically spent much time preparing.  Read the rest of this entry ?
