8603 – Lots of sugar.

Lorelai Gilmore, I’m very disappointed. I don’t blame you, though. Your writers are just being pesky. Good call with Funny Face.

work bathroom yellow -  day 8
In the work restroom. Feeling skeptical about assorted nonsense.

Another CSI session tonight. Medical Examiner, I think. I’m looking much more forward to what I’ll be up to in a week.

Crashed *hard* last night. I don’t even remember going to bed.

The Florida Highway Patrol has set up a way for you to have and keep your emergency contact information current and on file with them.  This information may save crucial time if ever it becomes necessary to contact family members, or other loved ones in an emergency.  It is only available to individuals holding a current Florida Driver License or Florida Identification Card.

There are fried Twinkies and even fried candy bars.

Now, vendor Abel Gonzales Jr. has come up with a new artery-clogging concoction for the State Fair of Texas. It’s fried Coke.

Gonzales deep-fries Coca-Cola-flavored batter. He then drizzles Coke fountain syrup on it. The fried Coke is topped with whipped cream, cinnamon sugar and a cherry. Gonzales said the fried Coke came about just from thinking aloud.

Gonzales’ diet-buster wins the creativity honor at the second-annual Big Tex Choice Awards Contest.

Judges for the contest chose Shirley London’s Fried Praline Perfection as the tastiest fried delicacy.

The two won out among 26 entries such as fried macaroni and cheese and a deep-fried cosmopolitan.

London said she came up with the fried pralines idea after buying pralines at the fair last year. She plans to sell the pralines alongside fried marshmallows.

Gonzales achieved notoriety in 2005 with the fried peanut butter, banana, and jelly sandwich — selling an estimated 25,000 of the treats, according to the fair’s Web site. The site said London got media attention in 2004 with her fried marshmallows on-a-stick.

This is the same state fair that brought about the corn dog. The Web site said Neil and Carl Fletcher conjured up a sweetened corn-battered wiener on-a-stick and sold it for 15 cents during the 1942 State Fair of Texas.

Mmmm… Chocolate Skulls!


The perfect Halloween treat! Each skull is individually packaged in a clear bag and tied with black ribbon.

2.2 ounces (dimensions about 3″ x 1.75″ x 1″)

Blanca: Venezuelan plain white chocolate, 33% cocoa butter

Red Fire: ancho & chipotle chillies + Ceylon cinnamon + dark chocolate

Barcelona: hickory smoked almonds + grey sea salt + deep milk chocolate

I love me some Día de los Muertos. Corpses, Family and Candy. Some of my favorite things!

The Erlking – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe – mp3

Who’s riding so late through th’ endless wild?
The father ‘t is with his infant child;
He thinks the boy ‘s well off in his arm,
He grasps him tightly, he keeps him warm.

My son, say why are you hiding your face ?
Oh father, the Erlking ‘s coming apace,
The Erlking ‘s here with his train and crown!
My son, the fog moves up and down. –

Be good, my child, come, go with me!
I know nice games, will play them with thee,
And flowers thou ‘It find near by where
I live, pretty dress my mother will give.”

Dear father, oh father, and do you not hear
What th’ Erlking whispers so close to my ear?
Be quiet, do be quiet, my son,
Through leaves the wind is rustling anon.

Do come, my darling, oh come with me!
Good care my daughters will take of thee,
My daughters will dance about thee in a ring,
Will rock thee to sleep and will prettily sing.”

Dear father, oh father, and do you not see
The Erlking’s daughters so near to me?
My son, my son, no one ‘s in our way,
The willows are looking unusually gray.

I love thee, thy beauty I covet and choose,
Be willing, my darling, or force I shall use!
“Dear father, oh father, he seizes my arm!
The Erlking, father, has done me harm.

The father shudders, he darts through the wild;
With agony fill him the groans of his child.
He reached his farm with fear and dread;
The infant son in his arms was dead.
