Chicken Tawook, Radiohead, and other Randomness

To whomever is looking on Google for a chicken tawook dinner in Tulsa and found this site, you want to go Halim and Mimi's near the University of Tulsa campus on 11th street. This is the best Mediterranean/Lebanese food in the Land Between the Coasts. It's a small place-- don't miss it. I think it's only open from 11 to 3 on weekdays now, but make the effort! Trust me-- I never kid about garlicky goodness.

For those of you who love Radiohead, I have one question: OK Computer or Kid A? Now that Thom is releasing a solo album, I thought I'd ask.

Is Christy Brinkley cursed in love? It feels so weird to be pitying such a goddess....

How do I embed a YouTube video into a post?

Why does Mike Klonsky repeatedly think my name is Neil Finn? I'm not THAT obsessed about him, am I?

There are people in Jakarta who have read this blog. I find that amazing.

Guess who called to get me to beg, beg, beg me to come back to them today, after we have settled into dish-bliss? The Cable Company! It was hard not to laugh rudely when they offered me eighty whole channels! Tchah!

And everybody, all together now: AAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!

Yes, he's that cute. He almost puts me in insulin-shock.

Ms. Cornelius,

Youtube provides you with the HTML code, all you have to do is copy and paste into your new post. Make sure you are in the "Edit HTML" mode and not "compose

I'm a guy, and I don't get this: How does a man - an man - leave *Christy Brinkley* at home for some teenager?

This is like that dope Jude Law cheating on Sienna Miller. Or that guy who was with Mary Louise Parker and who dumped her when she was eight months pregnant with his child? (I have a bit of a crush on MLP, and I wanted to challenge him to pistols at forty paces.) Or the guy who cheated on Halle Berry. Halle Berry?!?!

Sorry. Don't get it.

I never heard of Chicken Tawook in my life, but I love how actually decide to give those who have directions. Classic.:)

Dear Mike, my rescuer,

I had to download Firefox to be able to do it, but it was worth it, because I have now learned a new thing today. Thanks bunches!

Quaker Dave,
Even I as a woman don't get it. And I get your Mary Louis Parker thing, too. She's been one of my favorites since the 80s. I;d be your second on that one, and I'd make sure the pistol was loaded. I never understood why a woman would divorce Tom Selleck either, unless his politics drove her away... But just for looking at, mmm-hmmmm!

And Janet, you must try this: it's grilled chicken breast, covered in a wonderfully garlicky yogurt based sauce with mild spices. My favorite is as a sandwich wrapped in a pita. See if there is a Lebanese restaurant near you. Oh my God! Now I crave one, and it's hundreds of miles away! AYYYY!

Our neighbors have a new puppy. My eldest son had his picture taken with it and posted it as his MySpace photograph. All the better to get girls with!

It's nice to hear the cable company grovel, isn't it?

Yes, indeedy, it is- the incompetent twerps. After the "retention specialist" played dumb and asked me why in the WORLD I would ever want to leave them, and I told her, she really couldn't mount a defense.

Now I just need them to come and get their shtupid shtuff.

And the puppy? Definitely a magnet for people of all types. He already knows sit and come, and is working on heel.
