I have just spent a whole effing hour looking at photos of Any Winehouse...sick-out! Next time remind me to waste an hour looking at pictures of someone more beautiful...say Matthew McConaughey.
Make no mistake, I DO NOT want one of these.
Oh, and here's one for your ferret...wouldn't want to leave the little guy out! Get it here.

After a bottle of Kim Crawford Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc last night, I proceeded to tell my friends that I would bring them all yellow squash and zucchini from my garden today, so I did! How fun it is to be the harvest fairy!
Lime Basil photo from here.
- 2 cups fresh picked basil leaves
- 1/3 cup pine nuts
- 3 cloves garlic
- up to 1/2 cup EVOO (nach, Rachel Ray)
pulse first 3 ingredients then slowly add EVOO while still running the Cuisinart.
That's it! If you want to eat it right away, add a little Romano or Parmesan and yum!
If you want to freeze it, then put it in baggies and freeze it. The next time you make spaghetti sauce from the jar (you know you do) add a hunk, and it will be just like you made that sauce fresh!
I also had a bunch of purple basil to harvest, and I did the same as above, but I toasted the pine nuts. OH.MY.GOD. It is so GD good, I can't stand it. The smell when I was blending it was heaven!
BTW, purple basil shot from here: 66 Square Feet. An awesome blog. Go there. Now.

Check out these shoes that are supposedly all the rage in Japan...
Now check out what they looked like "back in the day," and what your feet will look like if you wear them! Yuck!
Sorry...these came in an email to me, and I don't know where the photos came from. If they are yours (and by some amazing miracle you are reading this blog, let me know and I will credit you ASAP!)

These shades can be custom designed to glow when lit by the sun. I have no idea how well they work to block out other outside "distractions" but I have a few windows in my house that would be really cool with one of these shades on them.
Check Melissa out and her other designs here.

First realized as an Industrial Design Thesis project at Pratt Institute in Spring 2005 by Samuel Cabot Cochran, GROW.1 employs thin film photovoltaics with piezoelectric generators and screen printed conductive ink encapsulated in ETFE fluoropolymer lamination.
GROW.2 utilizes a structural stainless steel mesh system, which is manufactured by Carl Stahl Decorcable in Germany. Their system is designed to enable plants (such as ivy and other crawlers) to grow up the sides of buildings without causing damage to the building's exteriors, a typical problem of many vertical gardens.
Some of you smart people may know what that means, but I don't. All I know is it is cool as shit. If and when this comes out we all will be going solar.

I think this would be just perfect. That particular fabric wouldn't work for my room, but I like it too.

Come on...I love reading all of you guys, but when the reader says there are 17 posts to read, that is a little overwhelming.
But, never fear, I just slogged thru them all and got everything read!
Please, Google (or Tumblr), not ever again!
