I've got you under my skin

I'm kind of in love with this guy's designs. Thinking I might need to make a road trip to Montreal ...

And then I had a panic attack

That blur in a white tshirt on the left? That would be Lost's Henry Ian Cusick - Desmond, brutha - having lunch with his family in my office's cafeteria.

I believe the word you're looking for is SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!

Your Monday morning moment of Zen

Beer and Condiments

Is apparently what my fridge says about me.
From the right vantage point, an open fridge is the perfect staging grounds for a discussion of consumption.  And if the aphorism holds true—if we really are what we eat—then refrigerators are like windows into our souls. It’s that sentiment that’s at the heart of Mark Menjivar’s inventive exploration of hunger, “You Are What You Eat,” for which he photographed the contents of strangers’ refrigerators.

Kitchen Confidential

It's probably just as well these are sold out.  I would worry about brown bag Anthony Bourdain silently judging whatever crap food I put in him.  I can't take that kind of pressure from my lunch conveyance.

If loving you is wrong, I don't want to be right

The cupcakepocalypse is upon us, and it looks delicious. Behold!  A honey cake baked in a ham cup topped with a ring of candied pineapple.  The cinnamon cream cheese frosting seems like overkill to me.  Maybe just a nice glaze with the reserved pineapple juice.

Clickie the linkie for the full deets.

Fabulous animal prints and other bits of whimsy from Berkeley Illustration. I need one of everything.

Celebrities, they're just like me!

Because this is totes the kind of thing I would take a picture of. I heart you Jorge Garcia!

Passings - Koko Taylor

The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that music legend Koko Taylor has passed away at the age of 80, apparently due to complications following a recent surgery.

Farewell sweet Queen.

True fans are participating in the Lost birthing project

It's Wednesday which means I should be getting ready for another brain bleedingly awesome episode of Lost.  But alas, we have 9 long, long months to wait for Season 6 to begin.  

What's a fan to do during our long national nightmare?  Two words - Lost rewatch!

Lostpedia has the schedule (if you prefer structure) or you can just watch at your own pace.  What is time anyway?

Nine sites will be posting thoughts and analysis each week, including fearless leader T at Tubular.

So come back to the Island!  What else are you going to do this summer?  

Go outside?  Play with your kids?  Read a book?
