Konnichiwa, my friends!
It’s time for another All Things Thursday! It’s been a full week and I have plenty to share.
Let’s see. How shall I put this? Ladies and gentleman, I present to you…’fart-free draws’. Well, that’s not what they’re called but that’s what they do. Apparently, there’s a British company that makes underwear that comes with a funk filter. Yes, you read that correctly. They’re called Shreddies, underwear which is made of chemical warfare suit technology. So…you can fart up a storm and none will be the wiser. Well, then…it’s good to see warfare technology battle our most important threat…gas.
Scientists in Argentina have found a way to harness natural gas from cow burps. You know, for when we have a serious energy crisis. Um…ok. Seriously, can somebody tell me why there’s so much news about ‘gas’?
I didn’t start eating eggplant until about five years ago. When I did I realized what a versatile vegetable it is. I can see Roasted Eggplant Spaghetti with Miso Brown Butter Sauce in my immediate future. The title alone has me intrigued. (Cookie and Kate)
Currently, I’m working on a pumpkin shortbread cookie, which is awesome if you want something with a nice crunch. Although, most of the time I want a soft cookie that I can really sink my teeth into: Soft Glazed Pumpkin Sugar Cookie. (Lauren’s Latest)
How bad do I want to make this skull art for Halloween? Pretty freakin’ bad. (A Beautiful Mess) I could add it to my collection of DIY Halloween stuff. Last year, I made this bomb-ass wreath. (The Art of Doing Stuff)
Feeling pretty good, y’all. Fall is finally here (re: thank goodness) and I couldn’t keep myself from playing hookie today. I’ve got cool weather, hot tea and Jack Skellington slippers on my feet. Color me thankful for the little things in life.
Have a great weekend!
P.S. If you can, check out Wait Until Dark at the Geffen Playhouse. I enjoyed watching it live, but nobody’s as scary as Alan Arkin playing the role of Roat. The show runs until November 17th.
My doctor told me to stop having intimate dinners for four. Unless there are three other people.
