the dirty dozen {twelve things before the tropics, where, i'm told, it is rainy}: part 2 of 2

07 thistle hill tavern's buffalo cauliflower recipe.
08 simon beck walks all day to make massive patterns in the snow.
10 joe called me at work yesterday afternoon to report that he'd looked at the little silhouettes on the cans more closely and it turns out we've been feeding steve and matty dog food for the last month. i asked the internet if this was irreparable. cats are not small dogs, the internet said.
11 on royal swan upping.
12 frank o'hara, from "meditations in an emergency:"
However, I have never clogged myself with the praises of pastoral life, nor with nostalgia for an innocent past of perverted acts in pastures. No. One need never leave the confines of New York to get all the greenery one wishes—I can't even enjoy a blade of grass unless I know there's a subway handy, or a record store or some other sign that people do not totally regret life. It is more important to affirm the least sincere; the clouds get enough attention as it is and even they continue to pass. Do they know what they're missing? Uh huh.

Cauliflower link doesn't work. But I forgive you.

bugger. actually it does, it's the tavern link that doesn't work; i blame park slope (again). fixing.

Rob said...

steve and matty were simply conducting dietary research on the enemy. They will survive and be stronger for it.

Rachel said...

Is this what Matty has been trying to tell you at night? He should really be more direct, if so.

Damn those classy pet food graphics. This would never have happened if they'd just stuck a giant picture of a white squashy faced persian cat on the side like they used to.

lauren said...

the cats both adore the food and have hulked up while eating it. it's true that cats are not small dogs, internet; they are large dogs.*

let the record reflect that joe was the shopper in this scenario.

*we also free-feed them dry cat food, so i'm not especially worried that they've been missing key vitamins or protein.
