It's official. Muse is listed on the Classon
Avenue stop of NYC Bloggers. As of this morning, there
were three blogs listed at that stop. The site is growing.
I wonder how many will be on by next week. Blogs are springing
well, not really identity, per se... More like affiliation...
We've always gotten direct mail and e-mail that was aimed
at a certain audience, as if it was assumed we are part of
that audience. For example, a lot of e-mails about a certain
Republican candidate named Forrester have been coming to me.
Not interested in supporting the guy or his politics. But
there is a certain almost voyeuristic pleasure about getting
those messages. It's kind of like eavesdropping on a private
Denise got a really fun one the other day: A package from
the World Jewish Congress arrived - addressed to Denise. Not
everyone named Benjamin is jewish, but I suppose it's a decent
bet. Check out the package:
Salad sounds like healthy enough eating, but I admit - I don't
make it a point to keep my salads healty. Sometimes I put
mayo in the dressing. I usually use olive oil (extra virgin,
thanks!)- which is good - but not when you use a lot of it,
which I also do often. I like to mix up a home-brewed balsamic
vinaigrette and change-up the ingredients every once in a
while. (Lately I've been on a freshly-minced garlic kick.)
On a whim, I got a little jar of bacon bits to sprinkle on
every once in a while. I got the funnyest surprise when I
sprinkled the last of them on a salad the other day. This
spilled out onto the salad. Probably silica gel. Keeps the
bacon bits from sticking together. I tried to block out any
thought of what it might have been like, if this little packet
had leaked or leached into my bacon bits...
Then there's the one about the mesclun salad mix.
I like a good mesclun from time to time, instead of red leaf
or iceberg all the time. (Actually, it's rare that I have
iceberg anymore.) I had a good laugh checking out this label:
Seems they're making mesclun out of meat these days, and
it needs special handling instructions!
