Best Lunch on a Sh*t Hot Day

Evil Twin and I went to Farm Grill & Rotisserie today for lunch. It's this Greek place over in Snoootun, complete with pictures of Greece and white statuettes every where.

I got a Greek salad with gyro chicken - the sad remains of which are pictured below. It was sooo delicious that I almost bit off my own hand trying to get a picture.

And then I also got a dose of Galaktobouriko which comes out sounding a little bit like Galapagos Burrito. But it's kind of like a custardy baklava and is f*cking yummy! I had it once and have craved it ever since.

I think Greek food is the Next Big Thing.

And seeing as how I am the Food Psychic you can expect to see the Bohstin Globe feature all things Greek in the next month.

Mumbles vs Guns - Someone is Shooting from the Hip Again!

Oh for the LOVE of PETE! Mumbles Menino has declared a "war" on illegal guns.

That is fighting violence with violence basically.

Menino should not be allowed to talk in public, or to the public, or in general really. When he is in an agitated state he gets loud and incoherent and spittle-ly.

So while Menino was off on some junket in La-La-land a 7 year old shoots an 8 year old. And there is nothing the Mayah hates more than being out of town when the sh*t hits the fan.

Which means that Bostonians can expect some blustery knee jerk reaction. Which apparently is going to manifest itself as a "WAR" on illegal guns.

I hope it's all SWAT team, helicopters, searchlights, dogs, helmets, vests, battering rams, and oh yeah don't forget - big guns!

And now that it's about 42 millions degrees with 97% humidity I bet tempers start flaring raaaather quickly.

I am not sure what kind of relief there could be, but I doubt if being all finger pointy and puffed chesty is going to help at all.

Note to self - Don't eat the grout

I am trying to tackle a VERY ambitious mosaic grouting project and now I HATE grout.

It looks like Marshmallow Fluff, has about the same consistency, and I really want to put some on a Ritz cracker along with some peanut butter.

But that's because I am a little high from leaning over this dumb project inhaling the fumes.

Stupid stuff - you schmeer it on, push it in, let it set up and then wipe it off. Sounds SOOOO easy.


If I was just trying to grout little square mosaic squares I think this would be a much easier process, but nooooooooo. I have to try my hand at a multi dimensional grouting project.

Gah. I need a nap.

The Most Expensive Pants EVAH!!!!!

I have sort of been following that story of the Washington DC guy who sued his dry cleaner for $54,000,000 for f*cking with his pants.

Roy Pearson took the adage about a customer being right to the extreme and tried to take the cleaners to the cleaners.

This case has completely fascinated me - how on earth could anyone justify $54 million dollar pants? I don't think that I have the nuts necessary to take that kind of claim to court, but that's just me.

Today however a judge threw the case out. About time anyway.

Now Pearson has to pay all the legal fees. Which means those pants are going to cost him several hundred thousand dollars. Way more that the $29 bucks he spent on them at TJ Maxx.

Maybe he should Ebay them - recoup some of that moolah.

I think he meant "Bongo Hits 4 Jesus"

The Supreme Court today told this kid that he couldn't fly a banner at his school that read "Bong Hits 4 Jesus" because it promoted drug use. The kid just said it was a non-nonsensical saying.

Uh, are you kidding?

"Bong Hits 4 Jesus" means to smoke marijuana out of a bong in the name of Jesus. Duh.

But why bother smoking pot in the name of someone so unappreciative?

Why not "Bong Hits 4 Jerry Garcia"? Or "Bong Hits 4 Cheech"?

I mean really, "Bong Hits 4 Jesus" is like "Bong Hits 4 Rumsfield" - a buzz kill man.

Yeah, Dan Shaugnessy IS a bonehead.

Thanks to Universal Hub I was alerted to the fact that other people also think that Dan Shaughnessy is a bonehead.

Hey! What can I tell you, I don't really like the Bohstin Glowb. I can barely read the Food Section, never mind the Sports pages. So my knowledge of who is who and what they write and basically most stuff about the Red Sox is beyond me.

However I do think that Dan Shaugnessy is a bonehead because one time he stole my soda.

A friggin' 25 cent soda. What a chump.


That is the sound of me getting sucked into a sand hole.

Yep, evidently they pose a greater danger than sharks. Read about it HERE.

Which is why I haven't posted diddleysquat in about 3 weeks.

I was busy digging my way back up from China.
