Score!


On my front porch when I got home this evening:

  1. Autographed copy of Snake Farm (Ray Wylie Hubbard)
  2. The Money Pit (Tom Hanks (1986)...broken down house...if you haven't seen this one, you should)
  3. Mother Night (Kurt Vonnegut - the book, not the movie)
  4. Anthony Bourdain's Les Halles Cookbook

    I love the internet.
I also love Ray Wylie Hubbard, Tom Hanks, Kurt Vonnegut and Anthony Bourdain. Do you see a pattern there? I evidently have a weakness for smart-ass men, especially smart smart-ass men. Who knew?

I'm happy you got a shot of smart smart-ass men, but what does that have to do with the internet?

Laurie said...

Lorna - The internet Gods delivered it all to my doorstep.

I love Kurt Vonnegut. I'm sure I've told you that before.

>1. Autographed copy of Snake Farm

According to USPS tracking, mine's been sitting in Grand Prarie since Wednesday. And since I had it sent to the office and the office is closed on Monday, I won't get mine until next Wednesday. Damn USPS.

>2. The Money Pit (Tom Hanks (1986)...broken down house...if you haven't seen this one, you should)

Seen it, done it, been there. I think I have it on DVD somewhere.

>3. Mother Night (the book, not the movie)

Mine's leather-bound and signed by the author. You can get one here.


>4. Anthony Bourdain's Les Halles Cookbook

Never heard of him. But based on the Amazon desciption, I think we'd get along.

I saw Anthony Bourdain interviewed and he is hot hot hot - smart ass and all

Laurie said...

Neal - I bet you did tell me that already. Old Horsetail likes him, too. I wonder if that's why we're all drawn to each other. Hmmmmm....

Jack - I think your leather-bound autographed Vonnegut trumps my autographed Hubbard.

Sheila - Yes! Hot, hot, hot.

I can't believe I can't get my dose of S.A.M...sigh...can you channel some cynacism my way? I especially live Anthony Bourdain!

Laurie said...

Jersey - I thought I was the only one who liked Anthony Bourdain. My sister's don't care for him.

Danno said...

I love the Les Halles cookbook, he gives such an accurate view of restaurant cooking; the good, bad and ugly.

Laurie said...

Danno - I need Bourdain in my kitchen to shame me into trying some of the recipes.

Right there with you on 3 out of 4. I'm gonna have to check into this Boudain guy, though.

Laurie said...

Pokerboss - He's got a great show on the Travel Channel.
