I’ve actually been doing well with the “no meat except fish” thing. Except that Thursday I had some mini-burgers for a co-worker’s goodbye lunch. I couldn’t help — I have a weakness for food in miniature. Chomp chomp — it was yummy.
I had dinner at Joe’s Stone Crab — OMFG, it was delicious. I may go back and just do sides. Jennie’s Potatoes. Fried asparagus. Maybe get the fried green tomatoes, which I didn’t order last night. Mashed sweet potatoes!
Oh, and I very nearly lost my wallet (containing my green card — cringe) today. I found it lying in the street after I’d put it on the roof of Adrienne’s car, which was parked on a quiet side street in Wicker Park. Kathy came along as we retraced our steps, and was there to admonish me (if only slightly) when I found it, lying in the spot, undisturbed. It wasn’t even wet or covered in dirty snow. Kathy told me to go to church, and thank Jebus, and I think that’s a fantastic idea.
Blondie vs. Brownie [Wonkette]: A bake sale at a Brooklyn polling place asks the very question all Democrats (and some crossovers from the GOP, maybe) are asking themselves as they vote today. Only, ya know, with baked goods. Democracy is delicious! Democrats are delectable!
My friend Jeff on why you should vote for Obama [Ramone Rants]: I would have embedded the video, but as this blog is hosted by WP, I’m not allowed. Waaah! I miss you, blogger!
Racialicious endorses Obama [Racialicious]: Read fabulous commentary from Carmen, Wendi, Fatemeh, and Latoya. Then come back and bug me about how I need to get back to submitting stuff to the site.
the decision is yours [Angry Asian Man]: AAM has already endorsed Obama, and has been great in providing links to coverage of the campaign with a focus on Obama and endorsements from Asian-Americans.

True Life: “I’m Happy To Be Fat”: New (?) episode which aired Monday 1/21. I’m sure it will repeat. It’s worth watching. PS: I related most to Roxie, at least with regards to her boy issues. Maybe she and Sharonda need to hang out so she can boost her confidence with the gents.
