And some other things you should know...

1. Artichoke tapenade. Thanks one of Jezzey's recent posts mentioning artichoke paste I've been gorging on this recipe from Smitten Kitchen.

2. ...and also this dope asparagus pizza also from Smitten

3. For reasons unbeknownst, I have been repeating the word gonads to myself. Drop hairband in the toilet? "Gonads!" Wake up with a headache? "Gonads!" Get stuck between a parked car and a recycling truck on Lincoln street at 7:30 am on Saturday before you've had your first cup of coffee and have to have the garbage men talk you out of the jam, only to sardine-can your rear left quarter panel requiring $1000+ worth of body work and a new tire?? "GONADS!!" This prompted a brief google search; and wouldn't you know it - there is a newly discovered jellyfish called the medeopolis, latin for 'city of gonads'. Great name for a band.


4. and speaking of bands, I am newly obsessed with Danielle Dax's Cathouse.

Becca said...

I love the two flowers towards the front in the third photo - are they some kind of echinacea?
