Weekend Meme: 30 Days Challenge (Fourth 6)

>> Saturday, June 19, 2010

Guess I'm not the only one who's excited about the return of another season of True Blood. Just in the season premiere this past week there are 3 naked butts from 3 different main characters. I guess they know there's a big queer/female audience. Apparently the guys like it too:

This is probably just a little number the folks at True Blood paid Snoop Dogg to do for promotion sakes. I just never expected Snoop Dogg to be doing this. He had been a whole lot more mainstream lately.

Anyhow let's get to this week's meme, which is a continuation of the popular 30 days challenge. Here we go:

Day 19 — A talent of yours

I can recognize most songs within the first bar. I remember there's a game show using this concept and I think I can do pretty well in it. Coming up with the song name though might prove to be a it more difficult. It doesn't have to be the first 4 bars either, most of them I can listen for the first 2 seconds or some notes in the middle and I can sing along real quick. Maybe most people can do it but my ears are pretty good.

Day 20 — A hobby of yours

Blogging, going to new restaurant, trying new food and reviewing. Cooking. I'm also reading The Women's Murder Club series by James Patterson.

Day 21 — A recipe

Of all the stuff that I make, I'm most proud of a simple lemon pasta dish that comes from my head. I've made it for a lot of people and no one ever complains. You can add seafood to it or it can serve as a side dish for steaks, chicken or chops. It even works to be eating alone. I like it so much that I crowned it Pasta a la Paul. Anyway, here is the recipe.

2 Tbsp salt
1 lb of thin spaghetti/linguine fini
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 Tbsp butter
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 small onion, cut into thin ribbons
Zest of 1 lemon
Juice of 1 lemon
1 can (14.5 oz) chicken broth
1/3 cup grated Parmesan
Salt and pepper
Parsley, chopped (optional)

1. Cook pasta according to instructions on box about 10 minutes, drain.
2. Heat up the oil and butter in medium heat in the previous pot
2. Put in the garlic and onion, stir-fry until onion gets translucent (5 minutes)
3. Add lemon zest, lemon juice and chicken broth, heat until simmer.
4. Put in pasta or spaghetti squash and heat up for 4 minutes until liquid is slightly absorbed.
5. Sprinkle in the Parmesan. Season with salt and pepper, served warm. Sprinkle with chopped parsley if desired.

Day 22 — A website

Other than the blogs on my blogwheel, I also store some links in my bookmarks and I have been reading Lady Bunny's blog for a long time. She blogs sparsely but she often finds hilarious, racy materials. It's well worth reading.

Day 23 — A YouTube video

Since Joe.My.God introduced me to Auto-Tune The News, I've been a big fan. Though their 12th installment is out, I still find #11 to be the most genius one. It contains clips from March when UK's Nigel Farage confronting the legitimacy of Belgium's Herman van Rompuy being the president of EU, and the interaction between Glenn Beck and Eric Massa. If auto-tuning can get kids to watch the news, it might not be all that bad.

Day 24 — Whatever tickles your fancy

Rent was playing on FX yesterday around noon and I just tuned right in when Angel died and this funeral scene played out. I was struck on how good Jesse Martin looks and how great he sounded here. It brought tears in my eyes to hear him sing. Too bad I never got into Law & Order, I have not since one single episode, despite the show retains the cast of Oz and Chris Noth.

Have a great weekend!
