Crittenden goes fetal over crisis, resorts to Britney and cat/dog blogging
— Purple Avenger

Can't say that I blame him. Embrace the suck, go with the flow.

Sky’s falling, Israel’s about to nuke Iran, Palin’s getting dumped and Obama’s already won by a landslide, depending on who you listen to and when. Screw it, I’m Britneyblogging...

1 Britney is old news since she got sane. Amy Winehouse is the new happening popwreck-in-progress.

2 Winehouse looks like a addled skank these days though.  Hottness == gone.

5 Crittenden looks like a tower of strength compared to this WSJ bed-wetter.

6 No Miley Cyrus drama? I thought that was the big thing.

7 I've been mostly avoiding direct posts on the financial news partly because I'm ignorant on the topic and partly because I think people are a bit inundated with the whole thing. There's a reason screwball comedies, Marx Brothers, and musical spectaculars did well during the depression: people need a break from how much life sucks. We're totally unable to fix or have an impact on what's happening and almost none of us even understand it.

8 I'm really peeved that Amy Winehouse is still kicking around.  I had last month in the death pool.

9 She's still got 3 months to make the 08' dead celebs list though.

10 Amy Winehouse has that Keith Richards/Iggy Pop zombie vibe, like she's pickled and unkillable.

11 I have a great guacamole recipe...

Posted by: kevlarchick at September 30, 2008 10:49 AM (TNuqz)

12 Me too!

You'll want a slightly mushy, dark avocado, lemon juice, some sour cream, and a tomato for this as well.

When you get it home, slice the avocado in half. If you want an easy, neat trick to removing the pit, hack at the pit with a straight blade, it will sink into the pit. Twist slightly and it pops out, and you can dump the pit in the trash (or, if you want to try to grow one, into dirt. They don't fare well in western Oregon weather, sadly). Smoosh or scoop out the tasty green goop into a bowl you'll serve the guac from, and dispose of the skins.

Next, you put a teaspoon or less of lemon in the mix, I prefer to use these handy lemon juice containers called "lemons" that are dirt cheap at most supermarkets. Fresh lemons smell wonderful and have great juice in them, plus they store well. You want the lemon juice for two reasons: one, it seems to enhance the flavor, and two because if you end up storing the guacamole for later, the citrus acid will keep it from turning brown and nasty looking.

Mix in a few spoonfuls of sour cream. This is optional but I find it makes the result more creamy and smooth and tastes great to boot. If you are lactose intolerant like me, try some plain yogurt (not vanilla, just the plain, unflavored stuff). Plain yogurt is a tolerable substitute for sour cream in most dishes, and in some it's even superior.

Next, squeeze a bit of tomato into the mix. You'll want about a third of a normal tomato, about a spoonful of juice and some seeds. Sprinkle a pinch or two of salt into the mix - salt enhances flavor, but if you put too much in it starts to taste like, well salt.

Now, use a fork to uniformly mash the mixture together. You don't need it to be smooth and creamy like restaurants use, just mixed well together without any really significant lumps. This won't take much effort if you have the right ripeness of avocado.

Remember: you don't want this to be hot, guacamole and sour cream are to balance out and compliment the hot food. The help cool the palate.

13 Fag.

Fag?!  I don't think so.  He forgot the cilantro.

15 This thread reminds me of a graphic I've seen at Rantburg. showing pics from the period just prior to 9/11 - Britney on stage with boa constrictor, Gary Condit, shark attacks, etc. - captioned "a weary nation longs to care about stupid shit again".

16 Eh, Cilantro sucks. But if you feel compelled to throw weeds in your guacamole, feel free.

Oh and psst: chicks love a man who can cook. So I'm told. If I ever meet one I'll find out.
