If I had a beard like Julius von Bismarck, I think I would find it rather difficult to drink soup. Good thing I don't have a beard.
I just wanted to say that those muffins were AMAZING (thanks robin). I ate them for desert last night and then again for lunch this morning. I dont know what I would do without you.

Anyway maybe you can teach me how to cook someday.

Today I counted my blessings. I have some of the best friends in the entire universe. I seem to have contracted some sort of awful Summertime Influenza - coughing, hacking, sneezing, aches, The Works! Basically, I am miserable dripping snot inside my apartment while the sun shines and everyone else runs around outdoors.

So Fatema and Sofie visited me, bearing gifts of the DiBruno variety. I supplemented with a sourdough loaf and dipping oil. Good lord, it was amazing.

But afterward, I got re-inspired and made some mini-muffins. Here is what I put in them.

1/2 package firm tofu, crumbled
1 pkg chocolate baking chunks
1 3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup OJ, cut with 1/2 cup water
1/2 cup olive oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
2 eggs

This sounds a little bit funny, but they came out really dense and delicious and full of proteins. I baked them at 350 degrees for 18 minutes.

This is Of Intense Interest.



The cover of print Magazine for July is a type sculpture by Karsten Schmidt. This is so sexy. I can't breathe.

Check out his Flickr for photos of the ENTIRE process. It's amazing. I could wed him.

Oh wait. He's taken. And he lives in London.
Oh wait. I doubt I could ever be romantically interested in another designer. Especially not another type nerd. Mostly because I suffer from this condition called RCBS (Raving Competitive Bitch Syndrome). I don't know if it's genetic.

7 sums?

What are the seven sums?
1) yums
2) puns
3) mail order anything
4) drawings on walls including rocks to urban structures
5) histories
6) herstories
7) bizarre nonsense

reading on the subway, the most artistic part of the day

Yo Headress. Sup.

Post Punk Rock Flea Market: I am a winner. I just sold mad underpants with this kid on them:

RJB likes riding in cars (with boys and girls). he is the √úbermensch of drawing monsters and wearing winterwear. He is the dark night.
you cant see his eyes cause when he takes off his
glasses his pupils shoot a deadly mixture of pellets of beer and pop rocks at you.
the hood is kind of like a Yamaka. If sunlight touches his skull his brain spontaneously combusts into a huge green mushroom cloud.

sometimes you just need to cleanse yourself of your creations.


On Saturday, various tasties were enjoyed by all.
Despite the humidity this time of year, i need to wake up early in the morning to feed the chicken. the chicken came mail order from the internet -- a website called "chick-a-d." She was a cute little chick all fluffy and powder yellow. and she wasn't too dehydrated from her plane ride. That was a few weeks ago. We named her A'Broad. After her great aunt: Chickas. She likes sunflower seeds and flax seeds...which I grind up with a mortar and pestal with a little bit of water before regurgitating it into her mouth. its a process but worth it, after she burps a little.

Finding this site makes me think about quitting my day job while I'm (not) ahead.
Then I remember that The Internet isn't so silly after all, and allows folks to keep in touch when they can't all fly to Vegas and hang out poolside.


Someday I will be that man!
