My first Jucy Lucy.
When I was in New York earlier this year, I ended up in the East Village on Avenue A on three separate ocassions, with three different friends or groups of friends. Each time we walked by a smoothie shop called Juicy Lucy, and I would regale my east coast friends with the story of the Jucy Lucy, the magical burger filled with molten cheese, one of the most famous culinary creations born in...

It was taking some serious self-control not to whine about my ever declining tumblarity, so I did us both a favor and installed this aptly named greasemonkey script. (Thanks for the tip, Andy!) AH, I FEEL SO FREE! I’m still a bit confused as to why you’re the only site I have found whose text boxes are not checked by firefox spell checker. And then you have this spell check button...
After a thorough, scientific poll, the author has come to the following conclusions about what other people think of her: 94% of respondents who have similar taste in music (read: SUPER compatibility on last.fm) agree that she has excellent taste in music 98% of adults who think she is pretty would also call her cute 68% of that same group would call her sexy (the rest don’t really like...

A quandary: I need to renew my MPR subscription soon, and I usually opt out of the Minnesota Monthly subscription because…well, most of the time I find it stupid. But in the June issue there were no less than three awesome things written by Dara Moskowitz Grumdahl, whom I love. (Including something about Hmong bbq which of course does not appear to be online.) Is Dara alone worth getting an...
Mexican Chocolate Tofu Pudding (video) →
Grrr to anti-embedding, but this looks super easy and delicious. Also, Mark Bittman cracks me up. edit: Mace informs me that the NYTimes sucks with their links and this might bring you to a story about child rape, and not pudding. NOT COOL, NEW YORK TIMES.
more thoughts on age and feeling old.
I wrote something about First Avenue making me feel old about a week ago, and didn’t think much of it until it got linked pretty prominently elsewhere. (As in, holy hit spike.) I was talking with an older and wiser friend about the whole age thing, and it’s not really that I’m all wahhh I’m so old! I hate my life! It’s more that I’m becoming ever aware that time...

A pretty amazing stop motion short film - it’s worth clicking through, and I actually think the making of background info might be just as good. [via notcot]

Wow, I love seeing stuff like this.
my devoted following.
I always love trying to figure out the origins of random twitter followers and how/why they decided my small thoughts were of interest. Though many remain a mystery, a few followers have found me via distinct tweets: As much as I hate the idea of my car, I cannot deny that I love jamming to the obnoxiously bad Lady Sovereign while within it. [1/29] Cue….Lady Sovereign herself! (I think,...
A short list of things for which I am a sucker:
Skirts and dresses with pockets. Plaids. And stripes. Brightly colored kitchenware. Cheesy romantic comedies. Dogs sticking their heads out of car windows. Boys in plaid. Pretty much anything in kelly green. Pictures of people swimming. Girly songs that are perfectly in my range. Vintage postcards. Cute bicycles.

Biking to Work Manual : Skirts & Dresses →
Any Twin Cities tumblrperson who hasn’t been under a rock must know by now that it’s Bike Walk Week. Hooray! I found this page on that site and it’s an incredibly thorough guide on how to bike to work. [Put on jewelry away from toilets and sinks so you don’t drop it in. THANKS!] Yet the skirt and dresses page is a little thin. If you want a more...
First Avenue might only exist to make me feel old.
I went there Monday night to see The Kills. Good show, good show. But that’s not what I’m here to talk about - that place as it continues to exist only reminds me of time passing. First I thought about the last time I saw The Kills, opening for Bloc Party in 2005. Four years ago, are you serious? We were upstairs buying overpriced beers and I started reminiscing about that awesome...

Well! There goes Plan B.
sweet, sweet summer.
Summer is coming up ever so soon, and I will have ten full weeks of glorious freedom while I still get paid. Take that, suckers! While some in my profession may use the summer months as a time to rejuvenate and relax, my school year has been pretty stupid so I plan to do things. Many things! OH, THE THINGS I WILL DO! Here are some ideas: Cook a lot of stuff from the farmer’s markets, and...
A story. Once upon a time I joined this site called consumating. I cannot link to it for it does not exist anymore. I cannot link to the wikipedia page because it was deleted. Trying to describe the feel of the site would not do it justice, but I can describe how it basically worked. It started as a dating site but with popularity rankings. For every profile you passed by, you could click a thumb...
This is really incredible - robotic underground bike parking at train stations in Japan!
Pardon my gushing, but this weekend of awesomeness has restored my faith in the following: happy strangers, friends of friends, my old red Raleigh, my physical fitness level, and most importantly, my outlook for staying put instead of running away.
Wow, I first uploaded this last June. Some of it is outdated, but most of it still applies. [Dedicated to everyone at the meet-up, so nice to meet you all!]
Re: that meet-up thing →
I’m going to attempt to be there, although I will most certainly be late. And if I attempt to be fashionable, then I will definitely be even more (fashionably) late. But hooray! Internet people! MY FAVORITE KIND!
