Rush Limbaugh vs. Sotomayor

What is up with Obama’s nominees?!

Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor said in 2001: “I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.”

Then, recently after Sotomayor broke her ankle, Limbaugh said: “I hope she can find a wise Latina doctor to set that ankle, as opposed to an average white doctor, because the wise Latina doctor has much richer experience with broken ankles.”

Don’t tell me that wasn’t clever and funny. Virtual high five to Rush. Say NO to playing the race AND sex card the same way you would say no to drugs.

Round 10000 goes to Rush.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

This was a recommendation from a friend. It’s a history lesson (at least for me), the answer to all unfortunate victims of A.D.D. and the quirkiest text since The Importance of Being Earnest (to me!), all in wrapped in one. I’m halfway through the book and find it a delight to read. Thank you, friend!

Don’t be intimidated by the strange title. I can barely say it myself.

Sushi, Beverly Hills style.

It’s an art what these sushi chefs do. A four-hour marathon of a meal at Urasawa ain’t a joke. This chef was a trooper.

Silkiest tofu…in a sac. I don’t know what else to call it.

Best Chinese Food in the Pacific NW

Actually, it’s in Vancouver, BC but who wants to concede to the Canadians? If ever in the area, go to this restaurant for either dim sum or dinner. But come pick me up first on your way up.

Alaskan king crab steamed with loads of garlic and green onions:



Just a teaser for more food (and other) posts to come…
