Patti Fucking Smith



Who's the bane of YOUR existence? Surely there's someone who pisses you off in such a huge way that it merits flogging, at least. 'Round here, we call that person a RAT BASTARD. Who is the person you most want to rip a new asshole for whatever reason? Go ahead - now's your chance to put them on blast. Start commenting, and have fun gettin' your hate on - and out. IP logging is off and anonymous commenters WERE welcome, but I've had to disable it since I've gotten six tons of bullshit spam comments lately. Sorry about that.

Go on - vent your spleen...

MMMM - Lunch!

Okay, I have NO idea how this just happened here, but the planets aligned perfectly or something and it's going to make a really great lunch.

We normally go grocery shopping on Saturdays, so by Friday it's slim pickings for lunch and dinner - unless I have already planned the menu for the week and have things on hand for mealtimes. By midweek, I'm having reinvented leftovers for lunch or building off of existing things independent of individual meals. For instance, I love kimchi and make my own, which usually means I have the stuff on hand to eat with other things, just by itself, or as the centerpiece of kimchi pancakes (they're unbelievably good - I make a vinegar/soy/chili dipping sauce) or kimchi soup. I made the pancakes for lunch the other day when lolasenvy was here, I introduced them to her a while back (after meeting her resistance about the kimchi with my home made stuff and making yet another convert) and also made kimchi fried rice. Having used all my kimchi up, I had none leftover and REALLY want some - so I went for my leftovers.

Hmmm... What is in this here fridge... Hmmm...

There's some leftover roasted new potatoes, and a head of cabbage, and a giant sweet onion... EUREKA!! I'll have some bubble & squeak! I love the stuff, it's great comfort food. I prefer it with leftover cabbage and leftover potatoes, and chop my potatoes up roughly instead of using mashed ones. I prefer the texture, that's all. My favorite way to cook cabbage is the way the Venetians do it, by sauteeing a sliced onion in olive oil over low heat until it is nice and golden brown - then cranking the heat up to high and adding chopped cabbage and some salt & pepper, stir frying it until the cabbage begins to soften - then you dial the heat down to medium, cover the pan, and let the cabbage and onions cook down until everything is nice and soft, stirring everything a couple of times and recovering the pan. For bubble & squeak, I throw in the chopped potatoes just as the cabbage is at the stage I want it, covering the pan for a few minutes until the potatoes heat through, then mash them down slightly to break them up in the pan a bit. Scoot everything into the center of a hot skillet with a bit of butter or olive oil if needed, and form a solid mass, like a patty. Once it browns nicely on the bottom, carefully flip it and brown the other side.


To the one I've been on the phone with for the past hour & change...

Did you really expect less from me than what you got? If so, SHAME ON YOU! You shoulda known better - and if you didn't before, then you sure as shit do now.

Either way, *spank*.


Seriously, I couldn't make this shit up.
Sex can offer you some of the best and most intense moments in your life. But unpleasant odors can ruin your sex life and potentially your relationships. Let's be honest, unpleasant smells are a turn off for anyone, and the last thing you want is for a fishy smell to be coming from your own penis.
Wordz. I haz none.

Who Didn't See It Coming?

I love how the Freepers are all-a-froth about Obama winning Iowa. Of course, in order to smear him they have to resort to racist bullshit and taking his middle name out of context. It's just so fucking stupid, it's not even clever. See what I mean?

I seriously loathe stupid people.

Oh, speaking of the Freepers, their founder has officially endorsed Mr. Faber, the supervisor at Wellman Plastics in Lanford that replaced Booker. Right off the bat, the guy's a complete tool - even when he's not trying to get Roseanne, Jackie, and Crystal to do the impossible. Also, the LAST thing this country needs is another goddamned Republican actor in politics, let alone the White House.

Speaking of GOP tools, Rudy Giuliani offered this butt nugget on his losing Iowa:
He flatlined in Iowa and he's struggling in New Hampshire, but Rudy Giuliani shook off the early-state blues Thursday as only he can.

"None of this worries me - Sept. 11, there were times I was worried," Giuliani said.
It's official, the fucker has 9/11 Tourette's. Nothing is sacred with these bitches - N-O-T-H-I-N-G.
