I have decided to make my occasional “Stuff I Like” posts into a regular Friday meme (although I’m not terribly comfortable using the word yet). In addition to the quirky and wonderful things I’ve found, you can post and share your own links. Anything is fair game: an interesting article you read, a cute pair of shoes, the kick-ass crafting tutorial that made you drop what you were doing to start a new project, pictures of cute babies, recipes, whatever. These posts will be the place for anything you want to share.
Here are mine for this week:
A remake of the movie Clue? WHYWHYWHYWHWYWHY?!? The 1985 original is damn near perfect with great writing, an all-star cast and three alternate whodunnit endings. You’re getting on my last nerve, Hollywood.
Bakespace is a sort of ravelry for cooks, but without all the bells and whistles that master coder Casey has been spoiling us with.
NYC is instituting a tax on disposable bags. Mayor Bloomberg, I think I love you.
I am coveting Not Martha’s Duracell Powerpack 600.
K-Fed is tired of spending $200 on True Religion jeans for his toddlers. I don’t even know what to say about this. Wow. Just wow.
The Stone Soup Challenge is a great way to support struggling artist during these troubled times. Wanna do it with me? I’m in if you are.
The days of spending 20 minutes waiting for pasta water to boil are over! According to Harold McGee, you can use a whole lot less water, thereby speeding up your cooking time AND saving water and energy, without compromising the flavor of your pasta. Worth a try, I think.
Seen something you think I’d like this week? Link it up in the comments. (FYI- comments containing more than one link are moderated, so don’t worry if yours doesn’t show up lickety-split.)
