It's things like this that make the future librarian in me want to cry.

Fattening Lard Bake

There's a new recipe up, complete with a picture, at Fattening Lard Bake. The template is FUBAR, but it's still readable.

York's in the National News Again...

Race riots, teaching intelligent design in science class, principal shootings, and now this...

Kinky Sex, Shocking Death

I'm not sure if I think he should be held responsible since his wife was a willing participant.

Check out these public service spots from Canada...unless you're squeamish. And don't say I didn't warn you! This kind of thing would never fly in the States. J., have you seen these on TV?

I've been MIA lately because there isn't really much going on. I hate January, so I usually spend it hibernating. I slept through my alarm for 2 hours this morning and went in an hour late and put in for some vacation time to make up for it. Oops. Chris finally finished building my Ti-faux, so every day I have a new gift from the TV gods. I hadn't been watching TV lately, but now I have episodes of "Good Eats" (which go straight to a DVD-R...beats shelling out hundreds of bucks from the DVDs on Food Network's website!), "Anthony Bourdain No Reservations," "Intervention" (AWESOME show), and "Twilight Zone." John Cusack is on "Inside the Actor's Studio" at 1AM, so I get to come home tomorrow, curl up on the couch, and lust after my man. Just what I need...something to make me waste even more time. I feel like I've finally caught up to the 21st century now that I have a digital camera, an MP3 player, and a DVR. And yes, I'm fully aware that there is more advanced technology available, but let me bask on being somewhat current. On the Netflix front I just finished "My So-Called Life," which now goes on my list of TV shows that were canceled too early along with "Freaks and Geeks" and "Arrested Development."

The semester officially started today, but I'm only taking one class this semester and it's one of those three-weekend classes so I don't have to go till next weekend. I'm sooooo dreading it. I'm also afraid we're going to get massive snowstorms. The professor hasn't posted anything about the class yet, and I'm sort of worried. I always feel like everyone knows what's going on except for me. I have no idea what books to buy, what building the class is in...you know--information that might be a tad helpful.

That's pretty much my life right now--watching TV, hating winter, and dreading school. I hope everyone else's life is not as massively lame as mine!

For Maaach

March wanted to know where the picture of him was, so I searched in my camera and found it. Notice how he's holding a CD (which is helpfully labeled) and a hockey stick. The little black thing levitating is not a turd, but a puck. Don't get caught high sticking, March!

Merry Christmas to Me

I bought myself a digital camera for Christmas. I had it shipped to work, so here are the first pictures, taken in my closet...I mean office.

My bulletin board:


My hideous teal bookshelf. I keep soap in my office because the cleaning people never replace the empty soap in the bathroom across the hall from my office:


The view out my window, a brick wall. Notice how the window is artfully held closed with a block of wood. You can't see it very well, but the blinds are closed at the bottom to keep the homeless people who live between our building and the one next to us from watching me.


My carpet stains. Mmmm...
