Goodbye to @KaitlynWilkins, thoughts on truffle oil, Brazilian car commercials, you know… the usual…

Quickie round up of things I’ve enjoyed this week:

  • My dearest Kaitlyn is moving to London which means I’m officially down a best friend AND my #workbrush will not be going on very many fun adventures. (FYI, KW, have decided when I have some down time, I’m going to re-post the full adventures of my #workbrush here). Anyway, we made her a tribute video. I summarize our entire relationship at 3:00.
  • Amanda Hesser explains why Google SEO is helping to produce lazier home cooks.
  • Nissan mocks Ford in a Brazilian commercial that should be a lesson to all US ad agencies on how to get people to stop fast forwarding. (HT Susannah – who is still not reading my blog for Lent)
  • Serious Eats is giving truffle oil a thumbs down and after reading it, it looks like I’ll have to switch to truffle butter for my ridiculous indulgences.
  • It’s the Real Househusbands of Philadelphia. I have no words and I’m still recovering from the accent.
  • This feature in the New Yorker about the conspiracy around a Guatemalan murder is fascinating.  Please read.
  • Baseball season is back and the Yankees have already had their first three games against the Red Sox. I only watched one of them and it turns out I made the right choice. Anyway, it’s tough to choose between Baldwin and Krasinski, but I think I made the right call. (Hat tip: Married Brother)

In which Liz makes me reevaluate our entire 17 year friendship

me: look

everyone needs stepping stone friends


Liz: very true

i thought that’s all you would be

then i got stuck


Liz: that’s right

me: i’m the best thing that ever happened to you

Liz: i thought we could ride the bus

make each other feel comfortable at lunch

and go our separate ways


me: and then i got a car and you didn’t…

and you needed a ride…

Liz: totally

you kept the perks coming

me: and so my Ford Explorer brought us together

i was only friends w/ you b/c i was trying to up my badass quotient

like when i would sit in detention w/ you even though i didn’t have detention

Liz: i don’t remember that

He’s right!

Mike and I had an interesting exchange today:

me: do you know downtown san francisco at all?

bush and grant?

is that an insane intersection?

Mike: don’t know the town at all

me: ugh fine

if you were really a west coaster, you’d be more helpful

all i’m saying

Mike: http://maps.google.com/maps?q=bush+and+grant,+san+francisco,+ca&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&um=1&ie=UTF-8&split=0&gl=us&ei=ppOESoTOK4WQsgPlrJieBw&sa=X&oi=geocode_result&ct=title&resnum=1

click on street view

if you really worked in web media you’d know about resources like google

it’s a great website

me: oh snap

Mike: i just realized why you never post our gmail chats on your blog

me: because i don’t want you to develop a reputation as verbally abusive?

Mike: because i’m rarely as clever as you

Discussing JDate with Evan

My status message on gchat today read: “Not sure how I ended up on the National Pork Board’s listserve, but I’m kind of proud!” which prompted this exchange

Evan: you’ll never be accepted by a jewish mother-in-law now

7:45 PM me: ha!
Evan: but i had a pork taco for dinner
and a cheeseburger for lunch
so i can’t really talk
7:53 PM me: wait, you’re not the perfect jew?
i’m so disillusioned!
Evan: whoa, way to judge
7:56 PM according to my jdate profile, i’m am most certainly the perfect jew
me: well i’m sure that lie is the least of your worries on your jdate profile
7:57 PM Evan: haha, i probably shouldn’t have mentioned my million dollar apartment so many times

Then later tonight, I received this email from the same King of JDate:

Things my jdate profile can say…

1.  I eat pork, but I don’t date heffers…

1/24th of my birthday is done

And no one has wished me Happy Birthday on the day of yet.

Life really is a little sadder as Christmas Cake.
