the sunday random post of random things

dianeofnka's post on visiting gourmet cupcake stores made me realize the following:

This whole gourmet cupcake thing? I just don't get it.

The frozen yogurt thing I get, even the "get your own frozen yogurt and put your toppings on it yourself" thing as I can certainly appreciate a giant pile of mini Peanut Butter Cups and Twix and chocolate chip cookie dough on top of a smidgen of vanilla frozen yogurt ("but yogurt is healthy!").

But fancy, expensive cupcakes? Nope. To me, a cupcake is grocery store cupcake mix, with eggs and oil, tossed in cups and baked in the oven.


Here's a good email to get: "Dalai Lama (OHHDL) is now following your updates on Twitter."

Dalai Lama and I? We're like *this*.


They used to sell little taste bottles of absinthe at Beverages & More. But last time I was there, I couldn't find any. I bet it wasn't "real" absinthe anyway. I still want to taste it, though.


There are a lot of new albums out right now I want to hear: U2, Bruce, Lily Allen, others I can't remember.


Soda pop vendors (Pepsi, Coke, etc), don't think I haven't noticed that you've switched from 12-packs of cans to 8-packs of cans without lowering the price of said pack by 33%. I'm onto you.


ETA: There's a panel at E's high school next week with survivors of breast and ovarian cancer talking to the female students about cancer awareness. Apparently, due to "the sensitivity of the subject", I have to sign a permission slip for E to attend. What the hey? What issues would someone have with their kid attending something like this?
