The woman sitting next to me in the doctor’s office waiting room
noticed all this writing on the cover of this issue of Newsweek. Maybe
people are so used to commenting on blogs that they can’t resist
defacing property to make their voices heard. Or maybe this cover was
just too irresistible. Whatever the case, I knew I had to take a
picture of it and share it.

Last one out’s a rotten egg!

Last one out’s a rotten egg!

Originally uploaded by Kate O’

See this stuff? This Kala Namak black mineral salt? I bought it
because the copy on the packaging says "The distinctive smell and
flavor of eggs makes this salt unforgettable."

Unforgettable is right: I added it to my vegan French toast batter
this morning, and all was well until I stirred in the soymilk.
Apparently, when you wet it, it somehow activates the smell. The
kitchen filled with the "unforgettable" aroma of nearly-rotten eggs.

Karsten, who wasn’t interested in the French toast anyway, had to
leave the room. That was 40 minutes ago. He still hasn’t come back.

Note the oil burner going strong in the background. Vanilla Spice.
Hopefully it’s potent enough to overtake rotten egg smell. Ugh.

Thing is, the smell largely cooked off, and the French toast was
really good. So now I have a real dilemma whenever I want to make
anything that could benefit from a fake-egg flavor. Is it worth the
short-term stink and driving Karsten out of the room for the rest of
the morning? I guess I’ll play it by ear, or maybe by nose.

In the hospital room

Originally uploaded by Kate O’

My new walrus friend is keeping me company in the hospital, wrapped up
in all the scarves I’m going to be wearing for a while.

They were going to let me out tonight, but apparently there was some
parathyroid damage during the operation, and they’re concerned about
my calcium levels. But I should be able to go home around lunchtime
tomorrow. Which will be about the time I start to get really stir-
crazy, so that should work out great.

In the meantime, isn’t my walrus cute? I’m going to try to find him a
bucket.

Is Addison’s mangorita the superior recipe or is Donna’s the ‘rita

The only problem is, if it’s really popular with the target demographic, I may have to order five more.

When Google gets in the way: a mini-rant

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2008

Oh, and you know what’s annoying? How links in Google search results are all embedded with lots of Google-y stuff now, so you can’t just right click on a link in results to use for your own blogging purposes. You actually have to click through to the link and then copy it to clipboard, or manually click and select the unlinked URL from the bottom of the result entry. That’s seriously annoying.

Sorry. As you were.

Can’t a girl have a big-ass glass of booze anymore?

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2008

If you saw this, you had to have known I’d be all over it. ("All over it" meaning, of course, linking to it lazily without much comment.) From Jezebel, a "Network"-worthy rant about our inalienable right to a cocktail or three:

Here’s the thing: We’ve got higher life expectancies these days but we’re in a fast-paced, globally-warmed, been-there-done-that, terrorism-threat-level-permanently-orangeish world where there are few legal ways to soothe the soul; and sometimes chocolate and pictures of kittens just aren’t enough. Many of us emerge from our square-ish homes, travel in boxy vehicles to spend the day in a cube of a workspace. Why not hit the bar for some actual social human interaction? The ancient Greeks had Dionysus; we have happy hour. The government thinks you drink too much? So what?! And if you’re successful, working hard, isn’t there something civilized about an after-work cocktail? Does anyone else want to raise a glass and toast the invention of alcohol?

Never fear: I do. Cheers.
