ARRRGH! See! This is what happens everytime I look up. FUCK THE FCC. I hate people so much. I can't remember the last time I felt proud to be an American, but pretty much every day I feel shame about some new assbackwardry we've invented. I'm putting up a personal ad right after this post: Single American Male Seeks Sham Marriage with EU Citizen, No Fatties (Just Kidding, Glasgow!)

Oh, and the reason why I don't write about politics anymore, and the reason why half my posts are about food is because I don't like being angry and depressed and that's all that ever happens when I watch the news, and movies like Who Killed The Electric Car. Which by the way, was fairly good even though it was pretty heavy handedly pushing an obvious agenda. It didn't help their credibility that they interviewed a visibly psychotic Mel Gibson and Ralph 'Crazy Go Nuts' Nader.

Mein gott, so much frying yesterday. I came home (after lunch at the Golden Gate Meat Company) to discover a frying party was taking place at my house. My house smells of frying and doggie. Ugh. How can I love both but be so disgusted by the aftermath of each?
They fried everything. There was even more tempura this time, a whole onion, cheese, cheese stuffed inside other things, on and on, but the only thing I really had room for was 4 or 5 pieces of fried candy bar.
And there was even talk of driving to Oakland for chicken & waffles last night at 1am. My heart thanks us for coming to our senses.
Off to the garlic festival!

I had a dream last night that we got on the highway and rode our bicycles to Michigan. When we got there, a heavy storm was closing in on the city, only a few miles away; but nevertheless the weather was calm. I was riding my bike in the middle of a gravel field near the off-ramp, popping wheelies, etc., when I noticed frenzied insect activity on the ground. All kinds of ants and beetles were swarming the ground trying to get food and whatnot before the storm arrived. I remember focusing on several dozen ants carrying a doomed caterpillar down their hole.

So I picked the hottest day this year to leave SF and go for a drive in Napa, only to discover that my AC doesn't work anymore. It was over 100 degrees outside, and even hotter inside my car. It's not so much that I thought I was going to die, as it is I wanted to die.
To cheer myself up on the hottest weekend of the year, I bought a deep fat fryer! I anticipate a long learning period before I figure out how to not give myself a stomach ache every time I use it.
Also, I may have gone a little overboard with the oil. I bought 35 lbs. of soybean oil from CostCo. J.Ro told me after the fact that you don't really change the oil in fryers very frequently. Well no matter, I spilled most of it on my kitchen floor on the first frying attempt.

I now own a sword. Sam went to China and brought it back for me. Thanks Sam. I can't wait to cut stuff with it.

The world (and this country) is getting more and more fucked every day. I used to want to escape to an island somewhere, but now I just want to get off the damned planet.

Rockemstock: I had a complex time travel/zombie nightnmare
Rockemstock: I was in a fictional vintage store on the bowery and the Ramones walked by and it was weird cause they're all dead. I called out to Dee Dee and they were zombies, they attacked me, but somehow I was transported to 1986
Rockemstock: Then I was at a hip hop party and I was trying to figure out what to do, they realized I was from the future, and some of the hip hop zombies tried to attack me, and I had to give them my cell phone to get away, which I soon realized was a big mistake, since it was the only way I could prove I was from the future
Rockemstock: I was still in the East Village, and I had to find someone that I knew that would be around, and I could convince to help me. I knew that I shouldn't tell them about the zombies and the time travel, so I think I told them I was being chased by an abusive boyfriend.
Rockemstock: Then all these women in fun dresses came into the apartment and were practicing some kind of performance art.
Rockemstock: Oh, and the zombies were trying to kill me because I was from the future, but they were the only way I could get back to the future

Sea otters are my favorite because they have a built-in eating surface and because they tie themselves to kelp so they don't drift out to sea when they're asleep. Also they can crack open oysters while floating and I, brain the size of a planet, only just learned to open a beer bottle with a rock (a feat I can only accomplish on dry land).
