Feeling Gilmoreless



It is a beautiful rainy day here in ol' Iowa - and I am in need of some Gilmore. They return on September 20th - waaaay too far off. I want to lay on the couch - with a nice glass of wine - and watch hours of the girls...


with the rain coming down.

"That'll do pig!"

Wendy-Lady said...

Can't wait for the new season. Missing Tuesday night fun.

QueenB said...

Hello I hope everyone is having a great morning.

Kern said...

I woke up dizzy, and for some reason my joints hurt. Unfortunately, I wasn't drinking.

At least then there would be a fun excuse for it. Other than that it's a great day. Kind of.

QueenB said...

Has anyone seen Guess Who? I hear its funny, I might pick it up tonight.

urnotme said...

QueenB said...

Ok. Ill email you so you dont die of boredom. I can try to sneak in a slice if JJ dosnt scarf it all down tonight. :) Have you seen Guess Who? Im thinking of picking that up.

krysta jo said...

Guess Who was funny. It was pretty cute but relatively predictable.

urnotme said...

Um, no i haven't seen it, but I figured it'd be exactly how KJ just described it... I still wanna see it though...

Ahite ladies- I'm out.

QueenB said...

Thanks KJ! :)

Has anyone seen previews to Four Brothers? I cant decide if its going to be really good or really bad.

What about Arrested Development can't forget third season of that Jed. "Michael you know everything I do I do it for you." Good words of wisdom from Gob Bluth. Love the Girls though can't wait to see them again.

Kern said...

I also miss the Gilmores. I'm a little concerned about this new aimless Rory, however. And how disrespectful was she towards the end of last season? Ouch. Banner year for the young lady.

From sweet young girl to homewrecker to college dropout. I think she needs a taste of the Kern's tough love.

And that goes for Lorelai as well.

krysta jo said...

Oh my. Who keeps coming in as anonymous? Show your face!!

I watched three episodes of Season three last night - quite delightful if I say so myself!

Kern said...

I can't believe my above comments didn't elicit some kind of scolding for being my mind being in the gutter in relation to the GG.

I think it's become the norm, finally.

krysta jo said...

I have actually gotten used to the gutter comments about the Gilmore Girls. They don't even register anymore. See what you people are doing to me? Stripping me of my innocence.

Kern said...

Woo hoo!

Hear that boys? We've done it again!

Damfino said...

Wanting quality time with the girls is not that dirty.

krysta jo said...

Ok now that seriously crossed a line.

Kern said...

My Apologies.

krysta jo said...

I CANNOT believe you just deleted it.

Kern said...

Man, I'm having the worst luck today. Was that the wrong thing to do?

QueenB said...

Help! I need a good salsa recipe. I made one this weekend and it was horrible. Anyone have a good recipe out there?

Kern said...

Queen: Check out Epicurious. They usually have a lot of awesome recipes for things.

QueenB said...

Thanks Kern!

Damfino said...

He's filthy - yet helpful.

What did you delete Alex? How dare you?!?! I am very disapointed!

krysta jo said...

I am disappointed. It was filthy; it crossed a line; but it was still semi-funny. Deleted comments just can't happen.

Damfino said...

What a deletor.

Kern said...

Honestly, I didn't think it was that bad. It was a joke about me and the Gilmores, and corporal punishment. I didn't think it was any more over the line than the dirty word thread. I am confused about the fervor over deleted posts though. If I was really that awful, I'm sorry, but it kind of seemed to fall right in line with the sort of gutter antics we normally partake in at the Damfinoblog.

I'm throwing myself down the stairs right after this post.

Damfino said...

Wait - I am pissed that you deleted it!! Never pissed about being too filthy... there are no limits here bub!

krysta jo said...

What the h*ll? This has gotten way out of hand --- it was all in good humor Alex.

Damfino said...

Did you just censor the word "hell?" Now that is out of hand!!

Deit Heimley said...

SALSA RECIPE ALERT!!!!!!!
This is recipe of Deit's own creation. Deit won an award with it, because Deit is a pretty damn good cook! If you can get over him referring to himself in the third person!

OK, SALSA VERDE RECIPE
You will need:
2.5 pounds of tomatilos
1 Poblano pepper
2 Jalapeño peppers
4-8 Serrano peppers
1 Avocado firm
2 heads garlic (12-14 cloves)
1 large white onion minced
1 bunch fresh Mexican Parsley or Cilantro
Fresh Basil (about 1 cup)
1 lime
1.5 tbls coarse salt
1 tbls coarse ground black pepper
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp ground cardamom

Peel the outer shell and rinse tomatilos. Place in boiling water for one minute. Meanwhile roast the poblano and jalapeño peppers over an open flame, or roast on a stone in a oven until skin is blackened. Place tomatilos and peppers in ice water to cool. Peel the charred outer skins from the peppers, making sure to remove all the blackened skin. In a food processor or using a food chopper, finely mince Serrano peppers, parsley, and basil. Add all other ingredients except garlic and lime to food processor. Using the pulse function on the food processor or using a food chopped, mince the ingredients until well blended. Turn salsa into a bowel and add pressed garlic and the juice from one lime. Stir by hand until well blended. Allow to steep overnight.

Hint 1: The large amounts of parsley are a mellowing agent and the salsa is hottest when first made. It mellows with time.

Hint 2: Once roasted the poblano and jalapeño peppers become much more mild. Almost all of the heat comes from the unroasted Serrano peppers and garlic. The reduce heat reduce these two items only.

Hint 3: I used the Pampered Chef food chopper to make this salsa and did not use a food processor at all. I feel that a chopper will give a better consistency, but a food processor is much faster.

krysta jo said...

Thanks Deit!!!

I will say it now....HELL HELL HELL HELL HELL

Is it 5 yet?

QueenB said...

Thanks again. You guys are so helpful!

Damfino said...

You only have to say it 3 times to go.

Deit Heimley said...

You are hella-welcome you **explitive deleted**!!!

krysta jo said...

to hell? so now I am going to hell? Probably...all my friends are going to hell and now I am going to join them in hell and we'll have a hell of a good time.

Damfino said...

Actually... I am not going. Gotta free pass from my early days. Sorry....


enjoy the eternal damnation!

QueenB said...

hell yeah.

Deit Heimley said...

I on the other hand, am pretty sure I am going to hell. However, not in this life. I don't go to hell until about three lifetimes from now. But I'm only there for a short while before being reborn as a dung bettle ... no ... wait ... that's this life. Sorry. Well, something happens, and I don't think I like it. That's hell right?

Kern said...

You know, I think it was all this Northwest Sensitivity Training that they make us take for work up here.

I can attempt to replicate the post for the amusement of the masses.

It went a little something like this:

I think my kind of quality time with the Gilmores might be dirty. I can see it now:

"Rory! Lorelai! I told you not to leave your underthings on the floor by the hamper. That's it, time for a spanking!"

There would be swift and mighty justice from the firm, yet shockingly soft hand of Kern.


Hopefully this will get us back on the track of good, clean filth.

krysta jo said...

Hell will be party and Jed will be sad he missed it. I promise. My friends who have become acquainted with the cops over the years will be there to join us and they are a good good time!

Kern said...

I hope someone brings the good booze, at least.

Damfino said...

Kern - you should delete that.

KJ -I am not sure why cop friends would join you.... but hey, whatever makes you forget about the heat!

Deit Heimley said...

Well, 80% of my friends are going to hell because -- as Pat Robertson now tells us -- you can only go straight to heaven.

Kern said...

So I should delete that post again? Dammit, make up your mind people!

Deit Heimley said...

Jesus fuking Christ Jed (which is an interesting picture to say the least)!! She was saying her friends who were arrested, not the ones who know cops.

And the heat is why we are going there. God likes to keep the throne a little cold if you know what I mean!!

Kern said...

You know, come to think of it, though I am sorry if my post was a bit gutter, it was funny and I stand behind my filth by God.

I imagine I'll be in purgatory. I'm not good enough for heaven, but I'm too square for hell.

Deit Heimley said...

I have recently found out that simple things like thoughts of spanking fictional mother/daughter beauties can send you to hell, so don't think you are safe from hell just because you are square!!

Kern said...

Where did you hear that?

Damfino said...

Deit - such anger, hell must weigh heavily upon you.

Damfino said...

Off kids - heading home to dream of ladies and drink some beer - maybe belch a few times... and scratch my ass.

Yo

Kern said...

Besides that, I would have thought people would have been happy to see that side of me. I'm not made of stone, here.

Keep in mind these are the only thoughts I have to cling to in my lonely nights. I also use them to supress memories of bad dates like the one with Darth Tater a couple months ago.

Deit Heimley said...

Have you ever stopped to notice the final comment on these blogs. Ususally the last words said are not really what that person would have said as a last word. The conversation just sort of trails off.

Oh, and I just finished the Fresh Air piece on the Gilmore Girls. It was nice and quite typical of the in-depth interviewing stylings of Terry Gross. Who by the way has probably not watched TV since 1979. She's a friggin' public radio show host!!

Kern said...

I agree. That or I feel like my last post is like the nail in the thread's coffin. I'm at work so I couldn't really hear the Fresh Air piece.

I can't wait to go home. I'm going to do some more writing, and hopefully get this story done rather quickly.

I'm also awaiting word on my sweet giclee print of the piece I did the other day.

Kern said...

The above post is not what I would have posted as my last word. I guess the conversation just trailed off or something.

urnotme said...

Oh hell.
