Thanks for the Memories, Glitsy: Porktober 2012

*Let me start by apologizing for the photos. I was very lackadaisical about taking pictures, so I stole the majority of these from other people, so there’s some variance in terms of size, especially. There was a crime at this weekend’s Porktober. A crime against humanity. Someone ate all of the mozzarella out of the … Continue reading Thanks for the Memories, Glitsy: Porktober 2012

It’s Beginning to Smell a Lot Like Porktober

October is a very special month around thePoeLog household. It’s the birthday month of XFE, aka my boyfriend-for-life. It’s also the month we met. Yep, seven glorious years ago this month he wore me down and convinced me to go out with him. A couple of weeks later, on Halloween, he tricked me into our … Continue reading It’s Beginning to Smell a Lot Like Porktober

A Dayquil-Induced Rant Against Pretentious Food Porn Magazines (Mainly, Saveur)

I was deathly ill last week. I was fairly certain it was the summer plague or typhoid. I’m not sure. My guess was walking pneumonia, but I’ll admit I tend to be a bit dramatic on these issues sometimes. It started with a sore throat, some harmless coughing. Then, over the course of the next … Continue reading A Dayquil-Induced Rant Against Pretentious Food Porn Magazines (Mainly, Saveur)

Oysters, Pistols and Tipsy Walking in New Orleans

October is a very big month for me, both personally and professionally, and we celebrated some seriously huge milestones this past month. In fact, we were so busy celebrating them, that I didn’t even have time to write about them! So just consider this the first in a three-part series. Or something. First up was … Continue reading Oysters, Pistols and Tipsy Walking in New Orleans

Balinese Eats that Will (Probably) Not Result in a Spider Body Possession

When I came across this article about Bali, I had to click on it, even though I knew I didn’t really have the “stomach” to do so. (PUN INTENDED) Also: (Heads up: the article I’m referring to involves an Australian tourist and stomach-burrowing tropical spiders. Soooo….yeah. Nothing fun there.) You see, we went to Bali … Continue reading Balinese Eats that Will (Probably) Not Result in a Spider Body Possession

Friday Links: Bunnies and Breaking Bad Edition

My bosses have been out this week. By bosses, I mean my editor, who’s on vacation this week and next. And my lifestyle-coordinator-manager XFE. He’s abandoned me for a cross-country golf trip with his dad to celebrate Senior XFE’s retirement. This means I have to single-handedly run a multimedia information empire (hey, we post videos … Continue reading Friday Links: Bunnies and Breaking Bad Edition

Two Bald Boys and a Brisket

Great Texas brisket can be a life-altering experience, right up there with shaving one’s head or birthing a child. All three of those life-altering experiences played into our Memorial Day weekend. Before you get all excited, my personal pitmaster-for-life XFE and I are responsible for the brisket, but not the baby. Well, sorta. We started … Continue reading Two Bald Boys and a Brisket

Maybe the Hogs Were Concerned About the Impact of a Potential Bacon Shortage?

Those animals, man. They are totally out to get us. I don’t think I’m being paranoid (anymore) when I say that the animal kingdom has thoroughly turned on us. The evidence is stacking up and has been well documented on this website. Think badgers are cute little woodland creatures incapable of eating a midget porn … Continue reading Maybe the Hogs Were Concerned About the Impact of a Potential Bacon Shortage?

Birthday Ham

It’s not every day that one can say they brought home the bacon. Or, even, the ham. But my main man XFE’s birthday is today (Tuesday). And, well, he loves his cured meats. Which is fairly surprising considering the Great Northern Italy Food Poisoning Incident (Involving Salami), Spring 2011. I personally still have some hard … Continue reading Birthday Ham
