I’m a little anxious today…

So i’ve been surfing blogs a little bit. I particullary like this one.

Ah-Yi
And she makes these gorgeous woven scarfs, which i think you can sometimes buy in her etsy shop.

And the Secret ingredient is, 1 gallon of garlic…

Sometimes I like to pick things up off of the ground and keep them. I did that today, at Whole Foods, and I found this interesting list.

20 Onions I thought, Damn, thats a lot of onions. I figured it was for some hipster childrens party, but still, 20 onions is a lot. And a a gallon of garlic? Strange, I’ve never seen garlic come in gallons, is it chopped or cloves or what? I’m interested to see a gallon of garlic. Maybe its garlic juice? Thats supposed to be good for bug bites.

So at 3:00pm is when the Cowinkydink happens I visited Providence Daily Dose as I often do. And looky here…A Vegan Iron Chef Battle at As220 tonight. Weird.

The Merry Cemetary

At my house, we’ve been really into Anthony Bourdain’s:No Reservations I think over the past month we’ve seen at least 15 episodes. And truthfully, Tony’s (yeah we are on a first name basis now) view on a country can make or break a place for me. For instance, I never had much interest in visiting Hong Kong until I saw him eating at the food courts, and his stop in Iceland confirmed that one day would be enough for me. Last week Tony stopped in Romania, a place I almost visited but never did, and it looked pretty creepy and cold, except for the Merry Cemetary. A burial ground with cartoon-like handcarved wooden headstones with strange and sometime macabre scenes.

I’ve always found eastern european folk art to be so inspiring. This place alone makes Romania worth travelling to in my book. Anyone want to come with me?

P.S.Watch that video with sound on at your own risk.
