Is it significant that ALL of the pictures I've posted over the last 6 weeks are about food?

Oh yes

Not at all a representation of my incredible Sunday night, in case you were wondering. (via)

Speaking of scarce resources...

The gay marriage campaign cost at least $9.6 million.
Those who supported the repeal of the state's gay-marriage law spent $3.8 million, while those who fought to keep gay marriage on the books spent $5.8 million. Voters repealed the law by a 53-47 percent vote. (via)
In case you were wondering, $9.6 million would buy 3,764,706 gallons of heating oil, pay for food stamps for 18,251 three-person families, or pay 1/40 of the state deficit.

I don't mean to imply that I don't value the work of all of the folks who worked so hard on the campaign. But I am and always have been ambivalent on the issue of marriage itself. And this new information just underscores it all.

My million dollar idea

I think I'd like to start a new online business: comfort food porn.

THE AUDIENCE: Young adults who miss being home--homesick college students, young adults who moved across the country to be away from their families, traveling professionals.

THE SEASON: November-March
THE CONCEPT: Ultra-close photos of regular people interacting with their favorite starchy goodness.
  • people in baggy sweatshirts holding bowls of tuna casserole
  • slovenly parents in pajamas leaning over steamy crockpots
  • women with greasy hair in ponytails eating mashed potatoes
  • a closeup shot of a glistening peanut butter and margarine sandwich
  • men leaned back in barcaloungers with the jar of salsa propped directly below their chins

Would you watch?
