Another Tasty Dinner

Thought I'd post another dinner I didn't cook. This one involved stuffed portobello mushrooms, and it was fantastic.

Charlie Brown Christmas Tree

Hi Kids! We're going straight from Halloween into Christmas here on Hollywood. We got ourselves our very first Christmas Tree, complete with a tin foil star.

And just in case you don't believe the title of this post, here is the proof:

Fall Leaves!

The Great Albino Pumpkin

Crime Alert - Vinton County

The "740 Boyz" have recently marked their territory in Vinton County:

After tagging this wall in rural Zaleski State Forest, all 4 members of the "740 Boyz" went back to Trent's mom's house and drank Mt. Dew. For 6 hours.

Pre-carving preparations:

We carved pumpkins tonight!


Confidential to the Jupiter Brick

They're orange!

The cashier told me these were "Bengals Beers". I have my doubts about that because I don't know anything about football, but I have heard the Bengals really suck. And I don't even know anything about football.

Normally I'd Blame This On My Neighbors...

But then I opened my fridge to find...

And it begins...

As many of you probably already know, the first OSU game of the season is tomorrow. Most people are aware of this event because either (1) they are fans, or (2) they own a TV Guide. Over here on Hollywood, however, we have our own express notification system:

Nothin' like havin' a bunch of WT illiterate college drop-outs parked illegally in front of your house. I wish that you, my faithful readers, could have seen this joker emerge from his car. Total loser. Like corn-hole might be the only thing going for him. It was sad.

The hot dog of all blog posts

Hey folks. I'm way overdue for a blog update. Problem is, I don't have anthing planned to write about. So, I'm going to share a bunch of pictures I've taken over the past few weeks, just to let you know what I've been up to. Read: I'm just drinkin' some beers and looking at my picture files.

A chicken dinner from the Annual St. Joe's Chicken Dinner:

I didn't have any; I just took a picture of someone else's.

Here's a salad I made last night:

I didn't have any of this either. I mean, I had a salad, but it didn't look anything like this. It was more like if you took the picture above and shook it all up and dropped it in a bowl. But I did prepare this much-better-looking salad for my significant other. Because I'm a nice person.

Some more stuff I made last week that was pretty good:

This is possibly the lamest blog post ever. As in, the hot dog of all blog posts.

This is gross

WTF??? I poured this beer to celebrate the completion of my most recent blogging efforts, and this happened:

Note to self: fix the temperature in the fridge.

Basil update

Some of you have asked about the basil plant. I'm pleased to report there have been a few developments. He's had some hard times, but I think things are finally looking up. You see, he was partying a bit too hard there for a while:

Long story short, he got involved with a marijuana plant, and things ended badly during a police bust at the basement she was growing in on the near east side:

Basil plant learned his lesson - things were just moving too fast for a perennial. He decided he needed to make some changes, so he cleaned up his act and invested in a new home:

And guess who moved right in with him: (apparently cacti don't hold grudges over unfaithful herbs)

Finally, I am happy to announce a happy ending:

I'll let you know when they've set the date.


Time once again for a food post. Today I will reveal the secret behind making curry.

Step 1 - saute some tofu in some olive oil.

Step 2 - throw in some of this (preferrably chopped and prepared by someone else) along with some spices:

And you get this:


DISCLAIMER: These instructions will only work if you have someone with experience handling step 1. Those of us without skills would have ordered a pizza after cleaning up all the tofu from the floor.

So I return to my car this evening to find this:

The guy that dug through my trash that one day

OK, so I admit this didn't happen this evening - I am using recycled material for this post. But it did happen that one day. I was sitting in our upstairs office reading other people's blogs when I observed a gentleman who was paying a special amount of attention to our dumpster. At first he was tentative - he peered over the edge for 3 or 4 minutes. He then located a stick, which he used to casually reach deeper into the dumpster.

I say "casually" because his body language didn't really convey a deep commitment to a full "dumpster dive". It was more of a blase, somewhat uninterested search. About 15 minutes into this adventure I finally decided to grab my camera and document the experience. In the short time it took me to retrieve my camera, he had struck gold. He found what he was looking for. I arrived back at my upstairs window to see this:

So if anyone needs to read the Dispatch, come on over to Hollywood. We keep a copy in the dumpster - help yourself.

It's on like Donkey Kong!

Hi folks! I'm very proud to announce a new addition to our family:

And here I thought I wouldn't have anything interesting to write about, and then a basil plant enters my life. Most basil plants just tend to hang around on your porch and produce basil. Not this guy. He's up for a party. Check out what he's been up to for the last couple days:

I wish the little guy luck.
