video: ok, you Gleeks got me…

… for 3 minutes, anyway. It was near impossible for me not to know that Glee was returning, but when I heard that Jane Lynch–as her acerbic character Sue Sylvester–would be doing a near shot-for-shot remake of Madonna’s music video...

The Sweet Clementini

Of course, anytime is cocktail time. One might argue that the classic cocktail party is more appreciated during the colder months when people gather together to keep warm.

health: it’s not a tumor!

Just back from the doctor and turns out it most likely isn’t anything weird or crazy, but just some fancy-pants scarring–keloids. Turns out my head whackery of last year is having longer lasting effects, but at least it isn’t anything...

Chopper’s Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake

We all have our standby recipes that are, first and foremost, easy. They may also be impressive, but like a well-known commercial illustrates, they really aren’t any trouble at all. And then there are those recipes that may happen to...

We Brunch Hard

It’s like I keep telling people, brunch isn’t just some cutesy little meal for the chicks and the gays, brunch ain’t no joke! Baratunde Thurston just linked to this on twitter. Not normally known for his food-related comments, I clicked...
