On Mouthwatering Recipes from the March 1950 Issue of McCall's

The fried rice and cheese balls aren't that different then arancini di riso. Which are delicious little carb bombs.

On Friday Open Thread

Inspired by yesterdays whisk(e)y post, I have broken open the nip of Balvenie single wood that has resided in my pantry forever. I was saving it for a special occasion, but hey surely surviving wisdom tooth removal counts.

On that note, my mouth holes are almost completely healed. Anyone have opinions on how long until the rest of my face will stop hurting? I had the surgery last Wednesday and they were jammed in there good.

On Drinking Up and Sitting Down With the Men's Men at the Nashville Whiskey Festival

One of the weirdest compliments I've ever gotten was from my Dad when we went to Vegas. I had set a goal of winning enough to cover the scotch flight at some restaurant. I did, and bought him along. "LK, I'm proud. You know how to drink right"

On The Stereotype Pie

Somewhere after sticking that pro marriage equality sticker on your car before driving to the organic restaurant after your coop shift, you learn to relax into it. Then you try and find a ride to the natural living fair, not so much out of trying to conserve gas (which is good too) but more because you want to be able to knit on the trip up.

On Stream the New Albums from King Krule, Neko Case, Volcano Choir

I'm going to need to listen to it again, but the new Neko is begging for some top notch feminist analysis. And yes, that is a complement.

On What Were the Names of Your High School Tribes?

The alcove, based on where we hung out before school. Which overlapped quite a bit with the goths, kids in all AP classes, and drama kids.

I've felt like crap this week, so decided to treat myself to a movie (Elsysium, which reviews be damned I liked). It seems that everyone else had the same thought and on leaving there was a 15 minute parking lot backup. I was irritated and surprised in equal measure.

Also, fans of cheap makeup, the Ulta bag with $19 purchase right now is pretty good. It had eyeshadow, mascara, eyeliner, lippies, and really nice looking brushes.

On Best D.C. Metro Stations to Name a Baby After

Which L'Enfant entrance was it? I hope that poor babe wasn't wrapped in swaddling clothes from the weird smelly underground shopping center at the one entrance. (Is that even there anymore? I only spent 70% of my life in the DC environs)

On Man Quits Internet: Goodbye, Hugo Schwyzer

Don't let the door try to kill in your sleep on the way out.
