It's not fun being called Gorbachev, and other things I learned this week...

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...

Wow - you did learn a lot this week!

The leprechaun pie has me intrigued.

I still kind of want to meet the Palins... just to look at them. I'm apprehensive about asking this question, but what did the dildo have to say?

The Dildo Whisperer talked about getting toys that you can warm up before use, I actually forget the brand name, and warned listeners not get them too hot, cuz you know that will burn you in all the wrong places.

1. Sorry about the head and the splotchy bruise - maybe it will end up looking like Italy instead of Gorby.

2. Leprechaun Pie...sorta like how lemon pie is made with artificial lemons, and lemon detergent is made from real lemons...none of it makes sense.

3. I am looking forward to Sarah Palin's Alaska on TLC - mostly because that's where I think she belongs.

4. The Hereafter was boring??? Oh that makes me sad. I love Matt Damon and I was hoping it would be a really great and different outing from his Bourne Identity (oooooh, see what I did there!)

5. Practical advice from the Dildo Whisperer...that was unexpected!

Keep up the good work Brahm...and Alfred. It's always fun to see who's ranting about what!

Thanks Pam, and well put on Sarah Palin --- that is where she belongs!

Doesn't surprise me what you said about the Palins. Everyone seems to think that they are hideous twats!

Now... beet ice-cream.... is it also as hideous as it sounds?!!

Megan (Best of Fates) said...

Is the pie made of pink hearts, orange stars, yellow moons, green clovers and blue diamonds?

Brahm (alfred lives here) said...

@ Annie -- beet ice cream was pretty good not great, that being said you should know I like garlic ice cream a lot, so take it for what it's worth.

@ Megan --- no, but that Lucky Charms pie sounds awesome! Is more of a lime cheesecake lite, or mousse thing. Was good, though not as good as the name. Magically delicious...
