Pleasant Pornography

Internet PornWell, that just made a good title, but that is how Rochester is sometimes classified, and I did indeed spend a pleasant day in the company of John Wilmot, 2nd Earl of Rochester, typing till my fingers cramped and curled. Starting on the biography tomorrow.

Let's see, any other news? Mmmm, nope, not really. Oh, made a kickass meatloaf and mashed potatoes tonight. I tell ya, I'd never make it as a vegetarian. Meat and potatoes for me :)

Back to porn. Just wanted to share with you a clip from the Broadway show "Avenue Q" — Trekkie Monster singing "The Internet is for Porn." Reminds me of the summer we did all that Shakespeare with CSC and Madeline, Grammy, and I were singing along to the soundtrack at the bottom of our lungs :P

Just to make you a little home-sick: the Finnish strawberries have arrived. And they taste extra-sweet... Believe me, I've been eating them every day.

I'd never make it as a vegetarian either. Seems like a miserable life. Here's my favorite recipe for Meat Loaf. It's from "Good Eats." (And yes...a guy just posted a recipe...nobody give me any crap)

Thank you, I love new recipes! I have to try that next time :) Do you by any chance know a great chili recipe (red or green) seeing as you're a Texan and all?

I don't, actually. Of all the things I cook well I've never tried the culinary alchemy that is Chili. I do know this: Never put beans in Chili if you want it to be Texas Chili. Texas Chili is also always red, hence the term "bowl of red." (Incidentally, they say that what we now call chili was invented here in San Antonio, cool huh?)

Truthfully, chili takes so damn long to do right that I've never felt the urge to try it. I know several folks who like nothing more than to futz with a bowl or red for eight hours. So I let them do it. I'm selfish like that.
