One of the earliest known lolcats comes from Kenmore, NY, in 1929.


And this guy built the statue of liberty, holding a lightsaber, out of Legos His work is on display at the Strong Museum of Play but I don't know if this particular work is included.

I think I'm basically in favor of vitamin-enriching foods [I mean the basic A through zinc, not that probiotic acai/taurine crud you're trying to sell]. But what I want to know is, how do they decide which foods get which vitamins? If two foods are enriched with the same thing it's like showing up to a party in the same dress, right?

Whole milk gets vitamins A & D.*
Flour gets B-complex vitamins and iron.
Orange juice gets calcium.
Salt gets iodine.
Tap water gets fluoride. [How did fluoride manufacturers land that deal?!]

Why can't whole milk get iron, and flour get vitamin D? Why not put iodine in the water, and fluoride in the salt? Why put nutrients in salt anyway?

the golden rule


Staring at a jumbled pile of letter-shaped cookie cutters, my subconscious told me: RELAX. The rest is just because there's not a whole lot you can write without repeating a letter.

recipe korner

Equal parts Zubrowka & apple juice.

Zubrowka is Polish vodka infused with bison-grass, and has a flavor that is difficult to explain. Add in some apple juice for a kraazy subtle herbal flavor that will knock you on your ass like a ninja. I could pound these all night if they didn't pound me twice as hard.

White Russian. Egg nog, not milk. Drinking one now.

I tried making Tom & Jerrys at Craft Nite this weekend, having never had one before, from a recipe book three times older than I am. They were kind of mleh and knowing they were full of raw eggs didn't make them any better.

When somebody tells me to meet them at an Irish pub in a strip mall in Clarence I tend to grimace and brace myself, especially when it's named for a street 400 miles from Transit & Main. But Brennan's Bowery Bar is actually pretty good, and we might go there again maybe on an off-night since (e:dragonlady7) works out there.

Still not my scene. Nothing to do with anything, just putting that out there.

the floodgates!


I'm not that big on the commercial nog - my aunt makes a killer homemade nog and really you don't need more than three cups of egg nog per year. But I have an awesome recipe for it:

- egg nog, carton
- bread
Soak bread in egg nog. Fry it.

Something so easy has no business tasting so much better than French toast. (e:tinypliny) - egg nog is about 300% worse than any soy-based beverage you can come up with but LA LA LA I CAN'T HEAR YOU
