Songs I love singing (badly) in the car right now:

Home – Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

You lost me – Christina Aguilera

Billionaire – Travis McCoy feat. Bruno Mars   (what up, Oprah!)

Nothin’ on You – B.O.B. feat. Bruno Mars

My Chick Bad – Ludacris feat. Nicki Minaj (it’s going down – basement)

Young Forever – Jay-Z feat. Mr. Hudson

Not Afraid – Eminem

Ways to drive like an asshole and be sure to piss me off:

You have the blinker.  Who knew?  Use it!

In the city, double parking is understandable.  However, double parking while blocking an open space because you just don’t want to pay the meter when I would be happy to.  You suck.

I get it. You don’t want to wait in the lane for your exit off Storrow Drive. Traffic blows. We all know this.  You can do like some people and get in the next lane, speed up and then try to cut in front of me who has been impatiently waiting in said lane like the courteous driver that I am, Pffft! Never gonna happen my friend.

Things I’m all about or trying to figure out right now:

I’m hearing a lot of talk about Edamame lately.  For instance…..


@shuggilippo i knew there was a reason why i liked you. blue cheese and edamame FTW!

I pictured it to be like long lettuce leaves or something and I googled it and now I’m all WTF? Aren’t they just the yummy pea pods that come in lo mein?
Italian Wedding Cake.  I don’t think I need to say more on this, but I will.  I need some.  Period.  After watching the 24hr Restaurant Battle on Food Network with Rossella and Team Nonna, my heart has been set.  I think I’m going to go on a quest to find the perfect piece of Italian Wedding Cake.  Considering all the fantastic Italian bakeries in the North End, I foresee a decent challenge in my future.  And quite possibly and extra 4-5lbs on my ass.
Pasta Fagioli. It’s been a love of mine for quite some time.  Tim introduced me to it about 6 years ago.  He used to do all the electrical work for the Il Panino restaurants and I swear the way he talked about it, I’m pretty sure he would’ve taken payment in bowls of this soup.
I’m embarrassed to say the first time I tried it was at Olive Garden, GASP!  First AND last time I will eat at that place.  Maybe it was just the one I went to, but their dishes did not do the words “authentic Italian” any justice.  However, the Pasta Fagioli was pretty tasty.  Since then, I’ve tried it a few different places and now after much online recipe research, I’m going to find the one that I will add to the menu of my home.  Who knows, maybe everyone will hate it and talk shit about my food like I just did to the Olive Garden.  Ah, well.

Wouldn’t this be nice?
