I noticed a new section on my Amazon.com homepage (I assume it’s different for every customer, but perhaps you have this too) called “Food Oddities: Products Tagged as Odd.” There are three products listed, and they’re not the sort of product suggestions I’d like to see right at dinnertime:

Fresh Whole Rabbit
Fresh Whole Rabbit
$38.50
Pork Chocs...
Pork Chocs – Sugar Free Chocolate Dipped Pork Rinds
$12.95
Booty Sweat...
Booty Sweat, 8.4oz. Can (Pack of 24)
$44.99

I’d like to point out that the Pork Chocs use sugar-free chocolate, for those of you who are health-conscious or have special dietary needs.

By the way, you need to click on the Fresh Whole Rabbit and check out the customer-uploaded images. Be sure to roll over them for their “notes.”



Zuke's Mini BakesIt’s been a long time since Ilse’s been so excited about a treat (a treat meant specifically for dogs, not for people), so I have to blog about these. She absolutely loves these Zuke’s Mini Bakes that we got at Anaheim Feed.

I’ve never seen them at Petco, so I’m not sure how long they’ve existed. They only have the Zuke’s Mini Naturals, which smell gross. I went to Anaheim Feed to find a different treat but ended up deciding to try these. We got her the “Peanut Butter ‘n Blueberryz” flavor because she likes peanut butter more than turkey, and we think she’s allergic to chicken.

She’s been getting them for over a month now, but she still dances and acts crazy when she knows she’s going to get one. She usually loses interest in her treats pretty quickly, so her reaction to these is a welcome change. And they come in a huge box (325 pieces) for a low price (about $5), so that’s a welcome change too!

As a bonus, they’re made without wheat, corn, and soy, which is good if your dog has allergies, or if you’re a dog-allergy-hypochondriac.

Ashleigh and I are going to Paris in November, and we’re working on a list of must-see places, must-do attractions, and most importantly: must-eat food. If you’ve been to Paris and can recommend a specific restaurant, be sure to let us know! If you have a strong opinion about a museum/monument that we simply must see–or mustn’t waste our time seeing–let us know about that too!

I’m specifically looking for places to have fondue, recommendations for Seine sightseeing, fun little shops and boutiques, fancy dinner that won’t gross me out, and places to sit and drink coffee and people-watch.

It was announced today that Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme, who attempted to assassinate President Gerald Ford, is going to be released from prison on August 16. The other would-be Ford assassin, Sarah Jane Moore, was released back in 2007.

Both were members of the Manson “family,” and are featured in the musical Assassins by Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman.

Someone needs to immediately start writing a fictional sequel (also a musical, of course) in which the two women reunite, and conspire once again to do what they failed to do 34 years ago: to assassinate Gerald Ford.

I imagine the two senior citizens will go on a long journey to accomplish their goal, only to fail at the very end, when they reach President Ford’s home and realize that he passed away in 2006.
