You're right, very funny! I thought I had never heard of Roz Chast but then I looked her up and realized that I DO know her work. She's hilarious and I like her drawings.

I wonder where the professional moper advertised got his/her training. Rather than the rather mundane household tasks the advertiser suggested, I'm a little surprised he/she doesn't offer the other things David suggested although I would prefer to do my own gadding. I could use some help with flappi...

Ave Maria

I just saw this version of Ave Maria on another forum and was pleasantly surprised by Bobby McFerrin of "Don't Worry, Be Happy" fame (ick). [spoiler]I wonder if the audience was really a choir and the performance we're seeing is some kind of master class. I like the way at the end he seems...

Ishtar

I'm happy to see that Ishtar is making it into the cult movie status. I decided the time was nigh for my son, who loves slapstick humour of any sort, to see Ishtar. He thought it was kind of funny, not as funny as I think but he was still amused. I still think it's one of the funniest movies I've ev...

salmon on a plank

Last year, we bought a whole salmon at the supermarket and it came with a special food grade cedar plank for cooking salmon. We put the cedar plank away to Use Another Time and barbecued the salmon on the barbecue in our regular way. I took it out of the cupboard periodically, looked at it and put i...

A really great novel

I just finished one of those books that makes you scramble to the end because you want to know what happens but slow down because you don't want it to end. It's called The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. Now, I'm going to read Eddie's Bastard by William Kowalski. I read the second one called S...

It felt like a soup day...

...and I had a winter squash that had been sitting on the window sill for a while. I've often made :bravo: Squash with ginger soup but it didn't feel like that kind of day. I looked in the fridge to find some parsnips, carrots and beets. I had a recollection of seeing someone on the food network mak...

Clay Bakers

I've been sort of looking for a clay baker since I read about Cherry's Claypot Chicken in llizard's blog. I was at Value Village today looking for pieces for a costume for a party next week and found many things--my costume, 2 puzzles, a game and a clay baker! It's quite light coloured which indicat...

Or spring forward, crack your head against something hard and then fall back onto the muddied ground that the springboks have been gambling on. Great! NOW I have a mental image Gary Larsen type springboks playing ~poke~r~ and, oddly, smoking. I'm not clear why the smoking--maybe it's because :stink...

I do not, however, withdraw my objections to Daylight Saving Time. Pick a time, any time... and stick with it year round. That's what I was driving at in my original post. If we're going to have :stinks: DST :stinks: for 8 months, why don't we just change time since, as far as I can tell, it's arbi...

Daylight Savings Time

I hope you all turned your clocks forward. I have to say that I really don't understand :stinks: Daylight Savings :stinks: , especially now that it's 8 months of the year. It used to be that Daylight Savings was 7 full months--all of April to all of October. Now 3 weeks has been added in March and 1...

re: "Little Miss Sunshine"

I haven't seen many of the other movies in the category but it wouldn't surprise me to see this movie win best screenplay at this years Oscar's. Dataryder I think you're right. It won't win Best Movie though--it's a great movie but not a best movie. I watched it this afternoon by myself--MrBrown an...

And again, brilliant burgers! I mixed up ground beef with onion, garlic, cilantro, red chili flakes, cumin, salt, pepper, 1/4 inch cubes havarti with jalapeno cheese. The burgers were put on ciabatta buns and the condiment was a big mess of carmelized onions. Some people put mayonnaise and salsa on ...
