Coming soon on a Chickens & Eggs near you – several new recipes. I spent the summer making mostly recipes I already love or trying recipes that didn’t work out that well. Now that it’s cooler, and possibly because the computer was down for a couple weeks, I’ve tried several new recipes. Some even came out well. Posting it here to encourage me to get them written up.
Okay maybe these things are slightly related. While the computer was down, Netflix coincidentally introduced a bunch of collections of programs from HGTV and the DIY network. I have a real fascination with do it yourself and decorating and house tours. I might have said before that as someone who has lived almost always in the midwest or the inter-mountain west, watching the crazy prices for houses along either coast is just nuts.
But House Hunters and House Hunters International are also a kind of people watching thing. Is it fake? Parts of it are, or at least sort of re-enacted. I am always amazed by the couples who can’t agree on anything and are determined to get things their own way. Newlyweds or married for years – I’d like a follow up and find out whether they’re still together because it sure doesn’t seem like they could be. Don’t you wonder what they think when they see themselves on TV? And on a side note, I remember reading about this phenommenum somewhere in the last few years but what is it with young women ending every sentence with an pitch upswing so that it sounds like a question. “I like the kitchen???” I think the article I read talked about the speech pattern suggesting they want or need to be taken care of or to been seen as childlike. I don’t know but it drives me nuts.
