Complete and utter domination

Posted by AllieB on June 10, 2011

Back in Feb I shared a very special YouTube of Tina self-defending herself, and she just sent me a heretofore unseen SECOND video of the same event back in 2008. Christmas done come early, because this one is even better. You don’t reaaaallllly need sound, but I recommend.

Tina, you’re kind of a badass. Let’s go troll around Underground after dark and see how your moves hold up. Ahhhh, Unagi.

Jordan sent me this little heart attack from a food blog she follows, Craving Comfort, with the note: *hint – involves bacon wrapped, deep fried something…*

 Fried bacon-wrapped deviled eggs. If someone would like to whip these up, I would be more than happy to try them. I’ll follow it up with a visit to a cardiologist, but I’m pretty sure these would be worth it.

It’s too hot to write any more. Happy Weekend!! Baxter, out.

You’ve got mail

Posted by AllieB on May 31, 2011

Sometimes I feel like a tool having my own blog. I’ve more or less come to terms with it, but really – the word “blog” is totally nerd-chill inducing, and I like to think of myself as the anti-nerd, which is why I go the public library at least once/week and am obsessed with all things Kate Middleton.

One of my favorite things about BBT is that people seem to be reading it; I especially like it when they tell me what it is they like best. I received this email recently from a friendly reader, and it made my week. Also, the author of said email is hysterical and I’d be remiss to not share it, even if it wasn’t about BBT (it is, though – it’s about BBT):

Although I have not vocalized this in a comment on your blog, I oh so enjoy reading it.  It makes me giggle like all of the small school children that I had to accompany to Wicked on Wednesday as part of community service outreach (the play was entertaining but not as much as Crystal and Shantelle’s argument about whose shoes were the most “crazy fly”).  And though I can’t enjoy your food trucks in Atlanta, I do frequent the trucks roaming the streets of Another City* and have awoken in bed with remnants of said food trucks on my chest.  I also was propositioned once by an Indian falafel maker…so yea, I am pretty well known to the Other City* food truck industry.  I am classy though, so I didn’t go through with it even though in my mind I was picturing myself sitting on a throne of falafels wearing my jewel-encrusted crown, tossing some out the peasants under my rule…that’s what happens when you marry a falafel maker and move back to his country, right?

Anyhoo, one of the funniest things I saw on your blog was the picture of Hilary (re: lesbian boat driver (captain?) in plaid – I hope Birkenstocks were involved), but everything else is also up to my standards of daily internet consumption, in fact quite higher than my standards.  And I don’t mean to toot my own horn, but toot toot as my standards are quite high (see not hooking up with the falafel maker discussion above).  Keep up the good work!

*changed to protect the innocent…or not-so-innocent as the case may be (see throne of falafels)

Unlike my advice columns, I did not make this up. How could I – I have neither the creativity nor the verbiage to compose such an email. To the auteur I say: toot toot right back at ya.

How funny was that picture of Hilary…while she was not wearing a pair of Birks in the pic, she was sporting a pair of navy blue Crocs – clog-style, complete with heel strap.

The weather is here, wish you were beautiful.. Lurve, Pal, BBT, Pants, Billy

When your allergies act up, take out your nose ring

New words are exciting. Here’s a good one, courtesy of via YKenna.

frabjous \FRAB-juhs\, adjective:

Wonderful, elegant, superb, or delicious.

My orzo from Whole Foods is a frabjous experience for my tastebuds.

Hilary rarely looks or says anything remotely frabjous.

It is absolutely frabjous outside today; the Wizometer was right to give it an 11.

There ya go – frabjous. Try to use it in a sentence today.

Tai: Wow, you guys talk like grown-ups!

Cher: Well this is a really good school.

The video below depicts a high school girls hurdles race, and it is also proof positive that high school track is a no-cut sport. It is one enormous fail after another, my favorite part being around 34 seconds. You don’t need sound. Credit: Sister.

Holy crap I just watched it again. While I never was subject to this sort of humility in high school (note to high school girls: if you can’t clear the hurdles, quit the team),  I’m sure I managed to embarrass myself on a daily basis. Think about all those uncomfortable situations that we were privy to at that age…I guess I’ve really come a long way – had I witnessed this as a student, I surely would have felt too guilty to laugh and probably would’ve had to look away due to the secondhand awkwardness. Look at me now – pointing and laughing with the rest of them. Maturity is a marvelous thing.
