I’m trying to be all healthy and active and whatnot

I Read A Lot of Internets

One of the best parts of my day is coming home after work and school, kicking my shoes off, combining ingredients to make a nutritious, home-cooked-with-love meal, sitting down with my family, digging in and hearing, “Ehhhh, this has too much garlic! Why is there ricotta in here? I hate ricotta! This is too hot! Waaahhh!” And that’s just from my husband.

To be fair…if I had a cooking advice column and someone asked me, “kdiddy, if I need two cloves of minced garlic for garlic bread and have a jar of minced garlic that I want to use up, can I just use that for the bread even though it equals 6 or 7 cloves of garlic?” my answer would be, “Absolutely. Especially if you want to have the garlickiest garlic bread that ever garlicked.” I honestly didn’t think it was that bad, but I love garlic so whatever. *breathes on you*

I didn’t really watch the debates last night. I was being a good student and studying for my Grammar mid-term that’s on Thursday. I appear to have a serious problem identifying phrasal verbs and some other shit and oh my god, I really can’t wait for this class to be over. It’s fascinating, sure, but I hate hate HATE tests and I seriously will not take another one after this. Except for my driving test. I really need to get on that. But that’s a whole other panic attack.

I did hear about McCain referring to Obama as “that one,” which, you know, smooooth move, Ex-Lax. I also really liked the part where he started talking about speaking softly and carrying a big stick and how Obama speaks loudly…and presumably carries a small stick and, hey, let’s just call this whole election thing off and have a dick-measuring contest!

I also skipped all of the punditry and relied on play-by-plays from Sarah Palin, John McCain, Joe Biden, and, of course, Biggie Smalls.

  • The part that was probably the biggest indicator of McCain’s attitude was when a black man, Oliver, asked him how the bailout would help average citizens. Ed wrote about it in his blog, but he basically implied that Oliver is too ignorant to have known what Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae were before the crisis and then told him we have to do everything we can to make sure we help people like the white bald guy who asked the previous question stay in his home. What about Oliver’s home, John?

    • dude is getting panicked and, perhaps, offended that a white male Republican might actually lose to a black dude. like I told you, Obama’s not my total dreamboy and I don’t think he’s a magician, but it has to be clear to even McCain that this is a losing battle.

      that said, I still will not breathe any sighs of relief until November 5th, and all votes are counted, and I hear and see John McCain cede to Obama. until then, as far as I’m concerned, McCain still has just a good (if not better, based on what I know/detest about my fellow ‘mericans) a chance as “that one.”

  • And also? You and I went to the same cooking school. I double the garlic in most recipes. 40 cloves and a chicken? Naw, fuck that. 80 Cloves and a Drumstick, motherfuckers.

    Just remember: Garlic is a close chemical cousin to the stuff they put in cooking gas to make it smell, and to eau de skunk also[1].

    [OK, you can hit me for ending a clause with “also” like Palin. Just so long as you keep your promise not to breathe until McCain concedes.]

    [1] And grapefruit. Who knew? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercaptan
