i have too much white bread in the fridge. they were for making french toast but i can't just eat french toast every day, no matter how much i love it. desperately trying to finish my bread supply, today i made a butter and grape jam toast sandwich for lunch. in the late afternoon i went to market basket to get some grocery. my mother was driving the element and she could barely see over the steering wheel. after finally getting a parking spot, the disadvantage of the backward facing "suicide" doors on the element was clearly evident as our passengers had trouble getting out of the vehicle given the tight spaces. i had last night's leftover for dinner. taking out the trash was a challenge because the trash cans were frozen solid in the snow. i had to use a shovel and chisel them out of the ice. julie alerted me to alan rabinowitz on NPR, taking more about his life (i highly recommend listening to the archived broadcast on their website as well as seeing some photos).
confession: i occasionally watch red eye on fox news. it's sort of fox's answer to the daily show with john stewart. it's on at an obscenely late hour (3am) and i think my standards for television programming decreases in those wee hours of the night. the host is smarmy, the stories are of course slanted, but most of the time they're talking about trivial news, so it doesn't offend me as much. the pundits are not experts by any stretch of the imagination: usually one of the prettier female fox anchors, a comedian, a columnist, and then a random celebrity (on the show just to pitch something). the demographic of red eye caters to insomniac frat guys, so every once in a while they'll throw in a porn star or a model. what's surprising is the show is actually kind of funny. don't worry, i'm not converting to the dark side anytime soon. everyone knows i get my news the old fashion way, by asking the magic 8 ball.
