More nerdy yumminess

April 16, 2010

Apparently today is cake day.  That is just fine with me.  Fridays should always be cake days.

Anyway, check out this ridiculously awesome and nerdy sci-fi cake.  The Alien Film Festival idea was brilliant and the characters are amazing.  I really want to start a corporation called Bad Wolf.  What?  Doctor Who is finally the new season in the States this weekend!



“Jeez, The Cheat, you can’t sneak up on a brotha like that!”

April 16, 2010

So, I was perusing the Charm City Cakes blog today (what? you don’t want Mary Alice to be your best friend? liar.) and found this awesome picture of a groom’s cake created by Ben & Elena:

I couldn’t stop laughing.  I love me some Strong Bad and I really, really love the idea of Strong Bad dressed up for a wedding. I will be giggling to myself for the next half hour, in case you were wondering.


With Notes of Sugar and Kawaii

April 14, 2010

Yeah.  There’s now Hello Kitty wine.  And a cutesy website too.  You’d think I’d be outraged against this because I want to keep wine in good standing.  But…um…I have been won over by the cuteness.  I am a sucker for kawaii.  I fail.  Sorry.  Plus, you know, they’re Italian wines, not French, so I don’t really care all that much anyway.  I’m not saying I don’t drink Italian wine (waaaay too many bottles of prosecco in my past to count), but I don’t feel the need to defend it as much.  Or, I’m just as obsessed with the damn cat as my fellow St. Louisan, Kimora Lee.

If my family is reading this, I would like a bottle to celebrate my birthday.  Thank you in advance since I will be too drunk on the pink stuff to thank you on my bday.


Reasons to Love Germany: #2398345873456

April 5, 2010

I love Germany. I love New York. I love cupcakes. I love seeing the way other countries view the US. My new favorite thing? Probably, except that I don’t love McDonald’s (and am in fact a well-known hater). German correspondent Amadea, please translate.

BurgerBusiness and Gothamist elaborate.


When Jell-O is Salad

March 26, 2010

Maybe it’s because the best part about showing up at Grandma’s every summer was the orange jello, loaded with grapes, apples and bananas, topped with marshmallows and served on iceberg lettuce as “salad.”  Or maybe its because at my Grandpa’s funeral there were at least five multi-colored wibbly masses on rickety card tables in the church basement.  Whatever the reason, I want every single thing in this article on Mormon food.  Right now.

(Also, what does it say about the Atlantic’s readership that they have to explain jell-o salads, potato casseroles and extra-meat burgers?  Have these people never been off the coasts?)

Happy St. Paddy’s Day

Celebrate with two of my favorite things.  Beer + Ice cream = Beer Float.  Genius!


A Fine Taste Advent: Day 17

December 17, 2009

A good friend of the blog sent an email that said “If I had any money at all, you would be getting these for Christmas”  She followed this with another email saying “Also, I just realized how sexual some of these could look if inappropriately placed…”.  That made us like them all the more when I clicked on the link.  As we all know, we like gingerbread (and Lebkuchen ).  We like yoga.  And we love naughty things.  So these cookies would be very much appreciated if you’re going to perhaps leave a little something under the tree for your favorite bloggers.
