Just when I thought SNL was dead (and the whole white boy rap spoof for that matter), along comes Samburg and Parnell with something geniunely funny

The 10 Best and Worst Cookbooks for 2005 holiday giving.
[Via what's in rebecca's pocket?]
Some interesting choices, I'm familiar with some of them, but not with others. I like when people do best and worst list, if a product isn't that good I'm always happy for someone to warn me as well as recommend stuff to me.

Apologies to anyone who tried to access my feeds the last week or so, apparently I messed up a config path when migrating to the new code. Should be cool now.

Yesterday it started snowing around 2PM and snowed pretty hard until
late into the evening and we ended up getting about 6-8 inches. Just my
luck, Kristin and I had to drive somewhere after work and we fully
expected it to be a pain, but we at least expected the major streets to
be open. I ended up taking a bunch of side streets to avoid traffic
because the MINI actually does great in snow as long as it isn't too
deep, between the snow tires, traction control and antilock brakes.
In about 2+ hrs of driving around last night, we saw one city plow out
and that was on a side street. None of the major east-west streets on
the North side that we were on were plowed or even salted as far as we
could tell. Not Lawrence, not Foster, not Wilson. Didn't look like
Kimball was plowed either and Pulaski certainly wasn't. What the heck,
especially after the city was on the news the night before bragging
about how ready they were for this storm. This is the kind of crap I
expected in Nashville, which had maybe 3 plows for the whole city, but
here? They are usually better than this. What the heck am I paying all
these taxes for? They certainly don't ever seem to have a shortage of
parking enforcement officers ticketing people for the most inane things
imaginable, but they can't plow the streets. Why don't they put the
parking enforcement staff to work shoveling sidewalks, it would be nice
to see them do something that's actually useful for a change. But I'm
not bitter ... [:P]
