Tantalizing Tuesday to you all, my little gingersnaps! I've got some good things in store for you today. Special thank you to Culinary Contessa who asked me yesterday how I was doing during the hiatus. In a matter of speaking... holiday blahs. But I'm back and feeling great
after the med increase now that I'm blogging again. As I mentioned to you yesterday, during these tough economic times, I've had to let Willa the weatherwoman and Charlie the 405 traffic cam go, so you're on your own now with weather and traffic. So let's go ahead and move on!
There is a restaurant in Arizona that is going to offer African lion tacos. Apparently African lions aren't on the endangered list, so it's acceptable meat to sell according to the FDA. And I'm an omnivore (minus fish, unless you count tuna in a can packed in olive oil) but I don't think I could order a lion taco. Nope. Buffalo, sure. Alligator, already have. Rattlesnake, why not? But lion? Cute cuddly cousin of my 7 kitty cats? Nope. Na-ah. No way. And I'm not sure I want to be friends with someone who's eating a lion taco. Consider that a warning, gingersnaps.
But do you know what is good to consume? Ginger! Ginger has long been known to cure nausea. But a new study out reports that ginger also can be used as an analgesic, meaning it can help reduce inflammation and muscle pain, even women's menstrual cramps. It can also prevent ulcers, aid in digestion and ease heartburn. While research is still on-going, it's also suggested that it can even lower cholesterol. So you need to make sure you get your daily dose of Ginger in order to live a healthy, happy life. (I added that last part)
You want to know a secret? I don't like ginger. At all. Not ginger ale, not even in desserts. Not even in *gasp* gingersnaps. That's right, I don't even like gingersnaps. We shall never speak of this again.
You know what I do like though? The prospect of Alex Pettyfer playing Jace from the Mortal Instruments. And here is further proof that Alex is in talks to discuss playing the role. While no deal has been made yet, he has met with the director multiple times, and has read the books! *crosses my fingers*
I saw this picture in People yesterday, and first thing I noticed was the toddler needed a diaper change. Then I noticed the baby needed a diaper change and long ago too by the stains on his shorts. Ewwwww. But then I noticed Matthew McConaughey's legs. WTF? Is that a second pair of legs? Did they photoshop out his babymama that was walking behind him? Or maybe it's a Midget carrying his stash? Oh did I just say that outloud? They like to be called "Little People"! *slaps typing wrist* O_o Or perhaps does Mr. McC have four legs? Hmmm...
Speaking of Photoshop... what did the magazine Allure do to Jennifer Aniston? I'm going to ignore that weird @ss thing she's doing with her mouth in all three pictures and focus on the obvious... they are trying to turn her into J.Lo. Or Suzanne Somers. You tell me, better? Worse? or WTF??
And now it's time for... DAMN YOU AUTOCORRECT!!!!
The feces guy visits my kids every day. And I'm sick of it. Now if only my kids could poop out Fedex packages, that would be awesome.
I know your first instinct is that this guy is crazy. But I'd totally try that. But with one of my bettas, not with a goldfish, cause that's just silly.
And that's all the time I have for today, but I promise to be back with more fun and gingersnaps (in spirit) same time, same place tomorrow. Until then, here is something you should know...
NOW... for the fun part. In light of the responses on my blog and on twitter, (and in honor of the fact that Alex Pettyfer is considering the role of Jace), I thought I'd do a giveaway. Because you guys need to read these books I keep pimping.
No wait... I'm going to do a BIG giveaway. Because I like books, and I like my readers, and I like Alex Pettyfer.
I'm going to giveaway the Mortal Instruments box set, Clockwork Angel AND I Am Number Four. Yes, THREE giveaways!
But ladies and gents, this is for ONE DAY ONLY. That's right. You've got only today to enter and I will announce the winner TOMORROW. Cause who likes to wait, right?
If you want to enter my giveaway (sorry U.S. residents only), leave a comment and specify which book you want to win (only one book please) and I will announce the three winners tomorrow. I'm not going to make you add me to your blogroll, tweet or blog about it. Just one entry per person, it's that easy!
