Um, I just cooked myself an amazing late lunch with a recipe from epicurios.com. I paired it with a delicious wine, and a little sorbet for dessert. Then, I did the dishes and packed myself a lunch for tomorrow!
What now, shall I put on some pearls and vacuum?

*Below is some crazy stuff, skip at will... wine in the afternoon + Linda = whatamess...I am going to leave it as a reminder to myself not to drink so much...

You guys, we have to boycott the movie Australia by Baz Luhrmann. It is sad, but it is true.
Steady yourselVES and carry on!

When I first heard of this movie, I imagined a title made of letters with pictures in. The "A" would have didgeriedoos, the "U" would have a koala, etc.. there would be men with fluoro vests, and hats with corks, and outback landscapes, and dudes saying "That's not a knoife!" and kids using coin purses made from kangaroo ball sacks and various other things that Australian tourist shops make seem like authentic cultural necessities.
There would be an exclamation mark (!) at the end and it would be a fabulous movie full of beauty, truth and love!!

Sadly, the actual title looks more like a bad case of brown 'word art' all arched up and copyright free.. and there is no exclamation mark!

The company that made this movie was horrible to Shane. So even though I love Nicole Kidman, and I adore Hugh Jackman, and I find Mr. Luhrmann fantastic, and I have a serious soft spot for all things Australian, and the CGI looks breathtaking...

Oh man, Shane can't I just sneak in a side door or something and not actually pay to see it?? Wouldn't that count?? Like, I could buy a ticket to "The Boy in Striped Pajamas", or something all above board, but then like sneak down the hall?? I won't like it, I promise../..

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Tipsy Linda makes me giggle.

Also, [livejournal.com profile] crudown and I decided long ago that exclamation marks surrounded by parenthesis are actually emoticon butt-holes. Observe:

NOW YOU CANNOT UNSEE IT.

Oh you would.. you're always so accepting of fonts and their foibles.

Not so. I highly disapprove when two fonts that are both "Sans Sarif" think they have the right to marry one another. In fact, I would vote to get such unions banned. As one does.

And by that, I of course mean "Sans Serif"
