The boys return. And, more importantly, Joan. Mmm…Jooooaaaaan…did they make it rhyme with “moan” on purpose?

I thought last season was kinda sucky. Here’s to season 4.

Vader’s an EVIL VILLAIN, people. Get it? BAD GUY. Not singing. Not dancing. NAUGHTY.

I’ve also posted about WBC. I was delighted to hear of them protesting ComicCon, and even MOAR delighted to see pics of counter protests this morning, from THEDW linkyloo. Except this guy:

PBS has been rocking my face off…last night I realized that PJ Harvey and Nick Cave as my ideal 3some has been replaced (sorry laydeez) by Tavis Smiley and Charlie Rose. I went looking for some .jpgs, and found Charlie-boy interviewing Mr. Smiley… their damn shows keep me up past my bedtime.

Last night it was “South Carolina A to Z.”  It was fascinating, of course, and fun to guess what the letters would be.

D – Duke’s mayonnaise; my friend who moved to AZ a few years ago says he misses sweet tea (a-no-duh), proper collards and Duke’s.

I have an ever-increasing fondness for this crazy state. The gin might have helped…

I’m trying a new one. I”ve written about gin before, but this one is self-proclaimed “unusual”

and preferred by “1 out of 100 people.”

It’s OK. Sapphire still wins. Hendrick’s is too sweet. I had it with my usual tonic and lemon, and second usual grapefruit juice. Many, many times…wonder what Charlie and Tavis’ quaife of choice would be?

I usually don’t dig the mash-ups, too obvious, too boring, etc., but I enjoyed this one alright.

You know what else I enjoy? Friends who live in the country and make their own wine.

On the counter, in the living room, stacked in the bathroom…

In my belly…

Elderberry wine. Good news, the internet can stop now.

The cheeseburger has been had.

Like I needed another reason to live in N.Y.C.

I like food

that comes with tools.

And doesn’t need much more than a squeeze of fresh limon, and some tequila.

When in Atlanta, eat at BAB’S!

July 1, 2010

There simply is nothing to not like about Bab’s. First of all, it’s named after DIVINE.

This is my table.

The menu is great, the specials are fantastic. How good was the

avacado bisque?


At first you’re like, “Huh. Super creamy guacamole?” But then you’re like,

Everything is always fresh as hell, and crazy delicious – the sweet potato fries? Youdon’tevenknow. The portions are generous

The sandwiches are good too, I see

I like the crabmeat omelette…real crab. Gluten-free.

Though Bab’s is my favourite place in all of Atlanta to eat (I can’t even begin to tell you about the wonderful staff…and good coffee. And sake Bloody Marys! SO GOOD.), nothing beats home-cooking.

Especially Korean home-cooking.

Though I don’t always know what’s in it…

…I know it will be good. Not to mention the prep is easy on the eyes…

We had spinach, sprouts, soybeans and watercress

Amber helped Lovelace tasty up some tofu she’d brought

They were a hit!

L cooked the bulgogi right at the table

It confused some first-timers…

Not really, I just have impeccable timing 😛

I used Korean-style flat-ended chopsticks for the first time.

I liked them quite a bit.

…the rest of it wasn’t so bad, either! Anything is good with good company.
