The Weight

Trying to keep busy as the hours creep along. Man, tonight is the game of the year for CC and the Yanks. This is what it is all about. Meanwhile, there’s this thing called football on TV, and why not? It is November, after all.

Time for some soup. See you in a little bit.

I won't believe Cliff Lee is not pitching tonight until I see it.

[1] That song makes me wince whenever I hear it. Aside from Duelling Banjos it seems to me the pinnacle of trailer park rock music from the 20th century (and I like Lynard Skynard and REO Speedwagon). But you do it justice, Sliced, so I can throw my family and friends for a loop by singing it loudly at the least likely moments >;)

[0] Pasta e fagioli, Alex? Damn that looks good.

[3] Yeah, but he's so young looking....Of course that Centaur picture he's got of himself up in the attic looks ancient!

Hey, actually it's a ministrone, but same difference. Both would hit the spot on a Sunday, right?

You're traveling through another dimension -- a dimension not only of salt and vegetables but of meat. A journey into a wondrous kitchen whose noodles are that of imagination. That's a soup bowl up ahead: your next stop: the Minestrone Zone!

[3] Chyll, if you hear the Staples Singers cover that song you may change your mind. Mavis was "teh awesome" to quote our friend thelarmis!

[8] the version on the last waltz is awesome (staples singers with the band). the weight isn't one of my favorite band songs (stage fright, king harvest, it makes no difference), but [3] seems a little harsh to me.
