Come gaze into the void, or at least a warming glass of whisk(e)y with the scintillating members of the Shebeen Club this Thursday at six o'clock. Where else but the Shebeen? Don't come early, because they won't be open. And I PROMISE this time I won't be two hours late. Jeremy Hammond could break out of MCC and kidnap Sabu on behalf of the Syrian Electronic Army and call me to interview them all live…
An Aussie. An actor. A rocker. A rowdy. A noted student of the laws of physics as they pertain to the momentum of a thrown telephone.
Not exactly a recipe for a kindly father figure, you’d think. To everyone’s surprise, you’d be wrong, at least if you were thinking of Russell Crowe.
Thirteen-year-old Texas superfan Nicole Garcia was tweeting at and about her favorite celebrities one day (Crowe, Benedict Cumberbatch, Matt Smith, and the list goes on) when, to her surprise and amazement, one of them tweeted back. To everyone’s surprise and amazement, the exchange was perfectly adorable, and we give it here.
But wait, there’s more!
The Twitter exchange was screencapped and posted to Tumblr, where it received 127,052 reblogs, likes, and comments, although the original post has now been deleted.
In case you’re wondering, she DID do her homework. Russell Crowe, your work here is done!
We are honored that you have decided to dine at Mashiko. We know that there are many fine restaurants in Seattle, so we thank you for the opportunity to serve you.
The thing that saddens us is that some of our customers are bigots. This letter is address to them. To everyone else, thanks for not being a bigot.

I had a business lunch recently with a woman a bit younger than I. We both work for ourselves, battered survivors of the (most recent) recession, hanging on to long-term clients while seeking solid new ones, a combination we admitted can be exhausting.
We're both married suburban home-owners.
Although we had never met, and knew no one in common, we felt comfortable enough to speak more personally.
For those of you who haven’t been following along on the Food Blog, here’s what the vacation looks like so far. I’m due at a crab fest on the Island on Saturday, but unless SOMEBODY pays me before then, I’ll be trapped here. Oh, poor me.
As you can see, it’s a nonstop grind. Oh, the pressure!
