You know me, folks, it's all about the learnin' and the givin'... okay not so much, but I did learn stuff this week:
1- The founder and CEO of YouTube has resigned from the company to focus on his fashion line Hlaska. Nope, I never heard of it either.
2- I don't especially enjoy being called "Gorbachev". Last weekend I banged my head, lost a little blood, and now have a lovely red splotchy bruise on my upper forehead. Yep, it's that attractive.
3-Weird food is good. At a friend's birthday dinner at Zinc this weekend I had alpaca meatballs, beet ice cream, and a lemon custard burger. Not all together. That would be strange.
4- Palin's are idiots. Sarah Palin's daughter Bristol admitted that she simply forgot to vote in the midterm elections, leading everyone to conclude that the only votes that matter to her are those on Dancing With The Stars.
5- Leprechaun pie... apparently not made from real leprechauns.
6- Oscar winning director Clint Eastwood strikes out with Hereafter: it's slow, boring, pretentious, and has nothing to say.
7- In a rental car with satellite radio, we discovered all kinds of weird and wonderful stuff. The most memorable is "The Dildo Whisperer" on Sirius satellite radio. You can find Romaine at her website which is called, yes, Eat Romaine (www.eatromaine.com). I should have seen that one coming...
