A blog about nothing or simply: Seinfeld was onto something

July 24, 2009 - Taste Buds
THE BUDS were having a hard time deciding what to blog about this week.

For those of you groaning out there - Yes! It is a hard thing! Being witty is a tough job!

We went round and round, kicking ideas back and forth and reminding one another about every five minutes that we HAD to come up with a blog topic.

Usually we just blog about whatever was going on in our lives but, unfortunately, our lives are unbearably boring right now.

The pressure was on but we still drew blanks.

Bud Em was all for blogging about what a bad actor she thinks David Caruso is.

Really! Is he being serious?? With the sunglasses and the monotone voice and the hands on the hips? Who told this guy he could act?

Better yet - what director is satisfied with his performance?

He literally makes watching CSI: Miami unbearable. And for the record, his co-workers are little better.

Then the Buds sat around discussing how we could get some of the more obscure types of cancer some support. (Ahem, hello Farrah!)

You know, fingernail cancer, ear lobe cancer and others you never really hear about but we are sure exist - somewhere!

We tried to come up an appropriate ribbon color for fingernail cancer and decided OPI could have the final call on that one but we have yet to come up with a celebrity spokesperson willing to heed the call to end fingernail cancer.

OOPS! We may have found a cure - cut your darn fingernails!

Celebrity spokesperson no longer needed.

Bud Tricia wanted to blog about her new and “exciting” project - making firestarters from old toilet paper rolls and dryer lint!

Call and reserve yours now!

She is obsessed with reducing the amount of garbage she puts out every week and read somewhere about making homemade firestarters for camping using said items. She said she’s going to give them away as gifts at Christmas so act surprised!

We discussed pillow cases and whether the openings should face the inside or outside of the bed.

Both Buds have the openings facing the outside but it should be noted most hotels have them facing the inside.


Your thoughts?

This brought up the subject of home decorating and what NOT to do.

We refer you to this photo of a leaf we took at a local highbrow establishment.

In the ladies room, there were fake plants and there were little mirrors glued onto each leaf of one particular plant.

Yes, that is a mirror glued onto a leaf!


We don’t know but we don’t recommend it!

So, there you have it! Those are just some of the blog topics we rejected!

Aren’t you glad we didn’t blog about any of those?

Still, here’s a recipe from Chris Ainscough of Adena you might want to try while watching Seinfeld re-runs!


12 ounce package semi-sweet chocolate baking bar

2 1/2 sticks oleo, sliced

2 cups sugar

6 eggs

1 1/2 cups flour

1 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line 2-12 cup muffin tins with paper liners. Melt chocolate and oleo in double boiler, stirring occasionally. Beat sugar and eggs in a mixing bowl for three minutes. Then at three minutes, add all chocolate mixture to the egg mixture. Gradually add flour. Stir in walnuts. Scoop 1/3 cup batter into cupcake liners, 3/4 cup full.

Bake in preheated oven 25 to 30 minutes. Cool five minutes then place on wire racks to cool completely.
