Before you see "Knocked Up..." sure to check out "Hot Fuzz." It's a great movie.

The Pillow Fight League

"Fight Like A Girl"...So goes the tagline of the Pillow Fight League.

It's fast-paced girl fighting action with rules, officials, and rabid fans. See a host of PFL fighters take each other on in pursuit of the Tecumseth Cup. Whether it's Carmen Monoxide or Betty Clocker, the PFs are sure to please. According to undisclosed media sources, "It's not what you think it is, it's better."

Coming to a city near you....

The PFL will be making a stop at the Verizon Wireless Arena (Manchester, NH) on Wednesday, Sept. 19th.

OK, who put me on the "America's Test Kitchen" email list?

Apparently I can now purchase "Perfect Vegetables" for $10 off the book store price... According to the Pittsburgh Sunday Tribune-Review, "Perfect Vegetables" belongs on every cooking reference shelf."

I do not have a cooking reference shelf. In fact, I only have one shelf and its currently inhabited by loose quarters and and empty box of fabric softener. The last thing I "cooked" was two packages of "Lean Cuisine" Swedish meatballs. The irony (or perhaps it's just a coincidence) is that after looking up "Swedish meatballs" on Wikipedia, I know that "Swedish meatballs are served at the cafeteria at most IKEA locations around the world."

I've spent all day asking myself this question:

"The next time I have a craving for authentic Swedish meatballs, should I pick up a cooking reference shelf?"

Also, am I alone in thinking that Pittsburgh isn't exactly the vegan epicenter of culinary tastes? That's no knock on "The Big P," I'm just saying...

Out of Gas

With gas prices out of sight, there have been many reports published about ways to save on gas.
Drive the speed limit, use cruise control, inflate your tires, keep your windows up when the A/C is on. attempted to test some of these theories. According to Edmunds, the best way to save on gas is to drive without aggression.

Don't mash the gas. If you slowed your 0-to-60-mph acceleration time down from your current 10 seconds to a more normal city pace of 15 seconds, you'll feel the savings immediately. Up to 37 percent savings, average savings of 31 percent.

Katz foolishly gave me author rights...

Katz asked me to blog.
Decided to write haiku.
Blogging is scary.

Wonder Years

Sometimes our best meals have nothing to do with the quality of the food.

I ate one of my favorite slices of pizza during my last week of Kindergarten. We ate lunch in the cafeteria to familiarize ourselves with how we would eat lunch as 1st graders in the following school year. I recall the anticipation and excitment of eating in the cafeteria for the first time, and I devoured that rectangular slice of pizza.

I would have to wait an entire summer before my 2nd slice of school pizza.
