Sorry it’s been radio silence here in Tumblr-land. Lately I’ve been more of a Facebooker, I’ll admit it.
However, I wanted to let you all know about this lovely book by Jennifer McLagan called Odd Bits: How to Cook the Rest of the Animal (read an excerpt here). Patrik of PaleolithicDiet.com is running a little contest that I’m trying to be a winner of (to receive a copy of said book), and all I have to do is tell you what recipe I’d cook out of the book (and tweet about it as well).
It’s a tough call, but I think I’d go with “Wild Boar Shanks with Cranberries & Chocolate” because…honestly, it doesn’t sound scary AND it sounds yummy (hopefully it’s also an easy recipe, as I’ve been a lazy cook as of late). “Headcheese for the Unconvinced” is running a close second, however, because what IS headcheese, anyway, and yes, I’m unconvinced, LOL. Anyway, check out the book and PaleolithicDiet.com, won’t you?
P.S.: I already own McLagan’s Fat: An Appreciation of a Misunderstood Ingredient and Bones, so getting this book will complete my Offal Trifecta! Fingers crossed!
My deepest impulses are optimistic, an attitude that seems to me as spiritually necessary and proper as it is intellectually suspect.
“Feeling bad” is just a distraction. Stop distracting yourself and make a plan.
That is why it is so important to let certain things go. To release them. To cut loose. People need to understand that no one is playing marked cards; sometimes we win and sometimes we lose. Don’t expect to get anything back, don’t expect recognition for your efforts, don’t expect your genius to be discovered or your love to be understood. Complete the circle. Not out of pride, inability, or arrogance, but simply because whatever it is no longer fits in your life. Close the door, change the record, clean the house, get rid of the dust. Stop being who you were and become who you are.
Pulled me into your eyes
Through the greeny grey pebbles
And countless cathedrals arriving
Lifted me into your mouth
Turning spires and spittle of pearls
To perplex the young diver
Carried me through your hair
Up from suffocate seaweed
The perfumed cushions cascading
Pushed me into your skin
Where I bathed in the promises
Giddy with planets parading
“Habits of thought are mental magnets that draw to you certain things, people, and conditions. Weaken a bad habit by avoiding everything that occasioned it or stimulated it, without concentrating upon it in your zeal to avoid it. Then divert your mind to some good habit and steadily cultivate it until it becomes a dependable part of you.”
- Paramahansa Yogananda
“One’s primary concern when entering a strength competition is winning. As such, you should be focused entirely on what it takes to win. If you’re already focused on what it would take to win, you should be focused on what you can do to fucking embarrass everyone around you for even showing up.”

You write your story. Make it a great and exciting one!
When I am with you, we stay up all night.
When you’re not here, I can’t go to sleep.
Praise God for those two insomnias!
And the difference between them.
