What was Hitler’s Favorite Dish? Who Cares?

Reading this article about a Belgian Foodie tv show not airing the episode about Hitler’s favorite dish instantly got me instantly interested about the show.

Thanks to YouTube, in about 2 seconds I was able to watch a bit of the Roald Dahl episode.

Exciting! I would watch this show all the time if I could. I want to know what Freddie Mercury’s favorite dish was.

NKOTB

This post on TMZ made me realize I kind of let the fact that I recently went to see New Kids on The Block go by unmentioned to most everyone. I also didn’t get a chance to mention that show was totally, well BANANAS (as Rachel Zoe would say). It was great, girls screaming, NKOTB dancing just like they did when they were much younger, Joey wearing the smiley face jacket. Comments on TMZ say it the video must be staged, but an entire arena FULL of screaming girls assures me no, lame-ass girls like me are ready for more New Kids. I don’t think I’m ready to listen to New Kids on Pandora on my headphones at work, but Please Don’t Go Girl is my ring-tone and I’d go to another New Kids show and maybe buy a $30 tee-shirt this time around.

Wanna see a lame picture of me with Marky Mark at a new kids show in the 90s?? I know you do.

Me and Marky Mark

Here, we were very young then, this was even before the Funky Bunch. SO THERE. I am a true fan. He smelled like Adidas cologne.

3 things I really like all in one post!

1. Voting
2. Free things
3. Nikki McClure

If you go over to BuyOlympia.com (another thing I like)
you can get this sweet Nikki McClure poster for free (and really for free, not like those “free” obama moveon.org shirts)

Vote

It’s the best thing I’ve seen all day!

almost 30

Its been a while, I know, but I’ve been busy, almost being 30. I turn the big 30 in November, and I’ve been doing a lot of things before that happens. Today I was talking with my friend Heather, who will turn 30 before me, and we were discussing things we may be on the “cusp” of liking.

For instance, will we wake up and like Celine Dion? What if the clock strikes and I suddenly have a craving for a Cosmo? Or I want to trade my scruffy dog in for a much harder to care for Puli (I had no idea thats what these dogs were called, but Heather did, she must be closer to the cusp). Will I suddenly think “Passion Parties” are fun instead of lame? A true tell tale sign of a 30 year old though, is wanting to celebrate at a 90’s night…. ugh.

my garden grows.

I’ve really been nerding out about gardening & veggies this summer. I was able to get a community garden spot, and so far its going great. Last year I was trying to grow tomatoes on my roof, but it was super hot out there, we weren’t “technically allowed” on the roof and I got a hornworm invasion. This year, i’ve already harvest a shit-ton of radishes, more mesclun than one person should ever eat, and some so so swiss chard.

Here’s a peek into what gets me so excited.

look at that cucumber! adorable.

“Shear Genius” or Bottom of the Barrel Reality TV?

I am someone who will watch just about any reality tv show, and enjoy it, and watch it through to the finale. I can find something good about a show, something so tacky or absurd that makes it watchable. I watched every stupid episode of “I Know My Kid’s a Star” and that Mother/Daughter pageant show that I can’t remember the name of.

Last year my ‘hook’ for Shear Genius was listening to Rene Fris’ say “Shake it out” every episode. It seems this year he’s dropped his catch phrase, but they are allowing him to speak more, even though its impossible to understand wtf he is trying to say.

Meet my ‘hook’ for this year. Kim Vo.

uglyagnes trivia: quiche lorraine is my fave b52s song

I like a good cover band, and lately there has been some buzz about B-Hive, a local B52s cover band. I got a chance to see them last night at a Providence RollerDerby event, and they were dynamite!

Providence has a great b52s cover band

At the end of May i’ll be seeing the B52s play at the true colors tour in Boston, and i have a feeling that B-Hive might be better than the real thing!
