Reading Today

posted by on June 1 at 10:00 AM

Only one reading today. Ellie Matthews, who won the Pillsbury Bake-Off, reads at Elliott Bay Book Company. I’m not sure why I’m so impressed at someone who’s won the Pilllsbury Bake-Off, but I seriously am. In honor of her, here’s a video about man-on-man penis envy gone horribly awry:

I've met a woman who won the Pillsbury Bake-Off. It's a hugely impressive feat. Nothing to be perplexed by.

Go to this one. I heard her interviewed and I read the book. A very quietyly intriguing person. You will want her to be your friend. I like surprises.

I heard her interviewed on KUOW, she's definitely a neat lady. She came up with her winning recipe by using up things she had in the house, and seemed really committed to both healthy and economic cooking. I kind of wish I had gone to this.

I just looked at the ingredients of some of those Pillsbury products and let me tell you those are some wholesome foods I want to feed to my family. I mean, I cann't pronounce the names of most of it but I am sure it is pure and healthy!

Nora Ephron wrote a very funny thing about the Bake-Off back in the 70's. I think it's in her "Crazy Salad" collection.

News from Dan Savage's glorious war on Iraq:

Mia Farrow's Nephew Dies in Iraq -- Uncle Pens Angry Letter to Editor of Vermont Paper. AN EXCERPT:

"Because of Bush's abusive stop-loss policy, Jason had been sent into an unwanted third tour of duty. He was a father of three and could not afford to lose his pension. Some 'volunteer Army'.

"During his three 15-month tours in Iraq, exposure to roadside bombs and other job-related injuries caused Jason to be hospitalized several times for concussion and internal bleeding and other injuries. Recently, Jason's condition was such that the Department of Defense flew him from Iraq to Dover Air Force Base for surgery. He was released from the hospital into the loving arms of the government who sent him directly back into Iraq. He was put on active duty while he was still on a liquid diet, unable to eat solid food because of a throat hemorrhage due to a botched surgery at a military hospital.

"After his second tour Jason returned home with severe mental and physical issues. He was certainly in no condition to be pressed into a third tour. He wanted out of the army. But Jason was a victim of the liar's back-door draft...

Because of George Bush, the arrogant, the corrupt, the liar, the war criminal, my nephew is dead and my sister and the rest of my family are devastated."

Constant you poor motherfucker. You think working at SLOG will advance your career? The internet has a long memory.

Fuckity fuck fuck eat an asshole blow a dick of your choice look what Dan Savage, America's favorite cocksucker (can't join the ARMY) wrote back in October 2002:

"In the meantime, invading and rebuilding Iraq will not only free the Iraqi people, it will also make the Saudis aware of the consequences they face if they continue to oppress their own people while exporting terrorism and terrorists. The War on Iraq will make it clear to our friends and enemies in the Middle East (and elsewhere) that we mean business: Free your people, reform your societies, liberalize, and democratize... or we're going to come over there, remove you from power, free your people, and reform your societies for ourselves."

ps Fnarf-don't you have a fucking life? Everytime I drop by here for a little danthewarmonger spamming to let his fans know what a deplorable war supporting asshole he is, you are in the thread. Somebody please! Invite Fnarf over for a blow job. Gomez? Mr Poe?

You really put the smackdown on Dan with your foul mouth language, Fartin Gomez. I can't begin to describe the astronomical height of respect I have for a man who can curse-type so well. You are truly an amazing intellect.

@8: There's been a surprising lack of smarts around here lately. Seems to be all over. Nothing can be done but to wait it out.
