I Heart Libraries

Says Borges: "I have always imagined that paradise will be a kind of library."

I couldn't agree more, especially if that paradise looks like any of these libraries. Update: or this library.

Of course, there would have to be cozy little corner nooks in windows holding a snow-flurried silence at bay, and there would have to be down comforters and thermoses of mulled wine handy, as well.

Overheard at the Office

Younger female colleague: "I LOVE the magic bullet!"

Older, overweight female colleague: "Oh, me too, you can just do so much with it!"

Younger female colleague: "Yeah, it's great, I use it all the time!"

NSFW, ladies, NSFW!

Death by Hot Sauce (The Source fans beware)

A British citizen died recently after creating and consuming a “super-hot chili sauce” when a friend challenged him to a “who’s balls are bigger” endurance contest. Though officials initially suspected Andrew Lee died of a heart attack, a post mortem uncovered no heart problems and an earlier medical examination had found him in perfect health.

Andrew Lee obtained the chilies used to up the sauce’s spice factor from his father’s garden. Considering the typically mind-numbing blandness of British food, one must wonder from what corner of the planet these chilies originate, and what the dickens they were doing in someone’s English garden in the first place.

Lee’s sister spoke of Andrew’s culinary ambitions, saying, “He always said he wanted to be a chef but didn’t want to start at the bottom.” Perhaps if he had started at the bottom of the spicy spectrum, or even within the intermediate to advanced Austin range, he wouldn’t be ending his start at the bottom of the grave.

What I want to know is, where can I get the recipe?
