Or—in my case—just eliminate the orange section.

I feel that it's mandatory to have a generous supply of candy options available in the event that trick-or-treaters ring the doorbell this Halloween (nevermind that not one child has ever done so in previous years). And I can't let all that candy go to waste afterwards, now can I.

Paris vs. New York
Paris vs. New York: A Tally of Two Cities is a new blog that uses lovely minimalist illustrations to compare two of my favorite cities in the world. The author describes the site as: "A friendly visual match between those two cities, as seen by a Parisian-based and lover of New York: details, cliches and contradictions. This way, please." Baguettes vs. bagels, metro card vs. subway card, Quasimodo vs. King Kong, Roland Garros (French Open) vs. U.S. Open...see them all here.

0 749 Games in 15 Minutes: A Montage for Nintendo's 25th Anniversary

Nintendo, 25th anniversary, 749 games in 15 minutes
It's slightly unsettling that Nintendo's video montage tribute to itself features 749 games. They couldn't just throw in one more? Otherwise, it's a very entertaining video, in a nostalgic, OMG-I-totally-forgot-about-that-game, I-used-to-stay-up-all-night-long-and-play-that-until-I-won sort of way.

P.S. Best NES game ever at 1:49.8-1:50.9.
This video was created in celebration of the 25th Anniversary of the Nintendo Entertainment System's release in the United States: October 18, 1985. The 749 games included in this video are in alphabetical order and represent a small piece of every UNIQUE title produced for the NES in North America, including the unlicensed titles. Each game was allotted 1.1 seconds, and all clips were captured from genuine NES hardware.

0 Tube-Free Toilet Paper Rolls Into Stores

tube-free toilet paper, Scott, Kimberly-Clark
Toilet paper — it's white, it comes on a roll, it does it's job and I wouldn't want to live without it (hence my refusal to ever go camping in the middle of nowhere, or anywhere else for that matter). Not much has changed in the TP industry over the last hundred years, until now...
On Monday, Kimberly-Clark, one of the world's biggest makers of household paper products, will begin testing Scott Naturals Tube-Free toilet paper at Walmart and Sam's Club stores throughout the Northeast. If sales take off, it may introduce the line nationally and globally — and even consider adapting the technology into its paper towel brands. (USA Today)
Do you realize what this means?! No more trying to peel the last insufficiently absorbent square off of the tube because you're too lazy to replace the roll! Why was this not invented sooner?! Think I'll renew my Sam's membership this weekend.

0 October 26 is National Pumpkin Day

Halloween, roasted pumpkin seed recipe, National Pumpkin Day

Have you carved a Halloween pumpkin yet? If not, today might be a good day, because...

October 26 is National Pumpkin Day!

Some fun facts about pumpkins:

● The word pumpkin originates from the word pepon, which is Greek for "large melon."

● About 1.5 billion pounds of pumpkins are grown each year in the United States; they can be cultivated on every continent except Antarctica.

● There are more than 50 varieties of pumpkins. Although pumpkins are usually orange or yellow, they can be dark green, pale green, white, red and gray.

● Pumpkins are 90 percent water.

● The world's largest pumpkin weighed 1,810.5 pounds (as of October 9, 2010).

So whether or not you choose today to carve your Halloween pumpkins, after you've removed all of the mushy insides, sift through and pick out the seeds. Roasted pumpkin seeds are a tasty snack and so simple to make. Here's an easy recipe:
Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

A pumpkin
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt

1. Cut a fresh, well-ripened pumpkin in half. Remove the membrane and seeds. Remove most of the pulp from the seeds (leaving some pulp on is okay because it adds to the flavor; for the same reason, do not rinse the seeds).
2. Heat oven to 300°F. Spread 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a shallow pan. Sprinkle seeds over oil in single layer. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon salt over seeds.
3. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned; cool.

(Thanks Betty Crocker!)

World Pasta Day banner, October 25
October 25 is World Pasta Daylike I needed an excuse to cook noodles for dinner, puh-lease!
"The objective of World Pasta Day is to draw the attention of the media and consumers to pasta. Communication should underline the fact that pasta is a global food, consumed in all five continents, having unquestionable merits, appropriate for a dynamic and healthy life style capable of meeting both primary food requirements and those of high-level gastronomy."
My celebration will consist of generous portion of bow tie pasta tossed with a drizzle of olive oil and an excessive amount of parmesan cheese. How will you honor this most wonderful occasion?

The conference room at work can be a creepy place, depending on who's attending the meeting. Card company American Greetings has purposely transformed its conference rooms into very scary workplaces. The company has temporarily decked out four meeting rooms with full Halloween decor — now that's certainly going to raise some spirits!

Gee, and I sort of thought I was decorating the office by putting the big Halloween candy bowl out on my desk.

0 iPod Runs Sony Walkman Out of Stores

Nowadays everyone owns an iPod, or at the very least a Discman. But if you were a kid in the 80s or 90s, you had a Sony Walkman.

Since hitting stores in 1979, Sony has sold 220 million of the portable audio cassette players. But the company announced Friday that it will stop selling the once-popular Walkman in Japan. Feeling old yet?

Someday you'll find that box of old cassettes stashed away in the back of a closet. Cassettes filled with recordings of favorite songs you taped from the radio, some you may have even gotten commercial-free. And while you won't be able to play them back, other creative options will emerge.

Grab a fork and pour yourself a cold glass of milk — October 23 is National Boston Cream Pie Day!

This classic American dessert was created back in 1856 by French chef M. Sanzian at Boston's Parker House Hotel. But Boston Cream Pie is not actually a pie. Rather, it's a round sponge cake that is split and filled with a custard or cream filling, and frosted with a chocolate glaze (such as ganache) or topped with confectioner's sugar. The cake is then cut into wedges and served like pie. I have never actually tasted Boston Cream Pie, but it looks delicious!

In the following video segment, you'll visit the kitchen at the famous Parker House Hotel, where Food Network's Bobby Flay gets a demo of how to make Boston Cream Pie. Watch:

0 A Billboard So Cheesy It Needs Crackers

Virgin Media has unveiled the world's first billboard made entirely of cheese. Located in London's Covent Garden, the 16.4 foot by 14 foot mural depicts  "The Fastest Mouse in all Mexico" — Speedy Gonzalez. The mouse is the new brand ambassador for Virgin's "Super Speedy Broadband" ad campaign.
Created by acclaimed food artist, Prudence Staite, [the billboard] uses 10 types of locally sourced cheese. Weighing in at [242.5lbs] the giant cheese sculpture took Prudence and her team eight days to craft, spending over 100 hours in a chilled studio to preserve the artwork. (source)
Shropshire Blue, Cheshire, Lancashire, Cheddar (mild, medium and mature), Chili Cheddar, Double Gloucester, Red Leicester and Wensleydale were all used in the making of this dairy installation. And hopefully the weather in London stays cool, or the whole project might really start to stink!

0 Starbucks Goes Over the Hill and Into Wine Country

Starbucks will turn 40 years old in 2011. To mark the occasion, the coffee chain is going "green" and making plans to change its menu as well.

Starbucks says it will offer beer and wine, cheeses, meats and other savory snacks after 4pm. About 70% of all Starbucks business happens before 2pm so this is their attempt at sucking more money out of each and every one of us on a daily AND nightly basis appealing to all of us "night people." I predict success.

The first prototype for the new and improved Starbucks opened today in Seattle and seems to be getting mostly favorable reviews.

0 World's Most Expensive Home in Mumbai

India's richest man is moving into the world's most expensive home; it only costs (holding pinky finger to lips) -- one billion dollars. That's billion, with a "B."

Mukesh Ambani's new 27-story home is in south Mumbai, a city which immediately brings to mind Oscar-winning movie Slumdog Millionaire, and now Jai Ho! is stuck in my head... but back to this most expensive abode. The building is named after the mythical island of Antilia and maintained by a staff of 600.
[The home] contains a health club with a gym and dance studio, a ballroom, guestrooms and a range of lounges and a 50 seater cinema. There is even an elevated garden with ceiling space to accommodate small trees. The roof has three helicopter pads and there is also underground parking for 160 cars. (source)
Obviously it pays to be the fourth richest man in the world.

Perhaps best identified as the Beaver's charming mother June Cleaver, she was also the voice of the headless Nanny from the Saturday morning cartoon Muppet Babies, but actress Barbara Billingsley's funniest role had to be as the jive talker from the Airplane! movie.

Billingsley died Saturday morning at her home in California; she was 94.

0 Creative Ads: McDonald's 'M Sandwich'

McDonald's, M Sandwich, Hungary
Once every few years...while on a road trip...stuck in the middle of nowhere...I will stop to eat at McDonald's. So although chances are that I'll never taste the McDonald's M Sandwich, I find the ad for it quite clever -- it made me look twice.

According to the ad's creative team:
Due to its high quality ingredients, McDonald’s wanted “The M” to be seen as a special option and its communication to target those who had some knowledge about cooking. That’s the reason why we came up with the idea of cookbooks forming the shape of a sandwich and the concept line “The M, a sandwich for experts.” (source)
Out of curiosity, I did an internet search for the books. I didn't find them.

Happy Sweetest Day!
If you don't live in the Great Lakes region, you may be unaware of a small holiday that us girls force our guys to celebrate -- it's called Sweetest Day. Today (the third Saturday in October), is a sort of mini-Valentine's Day and an excuse for us gals to get expect candy, flowers and a romantic dinner.

Sweetest Day was created in 1922 by Cleveland's Retails Confectioners International, who originally described it as an "occasion which offers all of us an opportunity to remember not only the sick, aged and orphaned, but also friends, relatives and associates whose helpfulness and kindness we have enjoyed." But again—and most importantly—it's an excuse to eat candy!

Happy Sweetest Day Danny B!!

0 Willy Wonka's Three-Course Gum Coming Soon

Willy Wonka, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Violet Beauregarde, chewing gum

Chew on this: Researchers have developed a technology that could be used to produce a gum just like the Willy Wonka version from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

"Tiny nanostructures within the gum would contain each of the different flavours," food scientist Professor Dave Hart told the Telegraph. These would be broken up and released upon contact with saliva or after a certain amount of chewing – providing a sequential taste explosion as you chew harder."

"Hi, Cornelia. How are ya, Sweetie?" he added.

No, the professor didn't really say that. But do you realize what this invention means? Simply chewing a piece of gum could turn into the enjoyment of a three-course meal of tomato soup, roast beef and a baked potato, and blueberry pie for dessert!

I'm getting all Violet Beauregarde about this and I may need to be squeezed soon, but it's pretty exciting. So many potential scenarios come to mind. For example, say there's some dude who asks you to dinner and you're just not into him. Instead of hurting his feelings, just hand him a piece of gum -- dinner is served! Oh yeah, and dieting? It pretty much becomes obsolete!

By now you're probably humming the Oompa Loompa song, so here it is. For old times.

0 A Watched Pot Never Boils: Pasta Food Myth

pasta, boiling water
Photo credit: hanataro/Flickr
The Food Lab at Serious Eats has debunked 6 common and egregious food myths -- but one in particular greatly piqued my interest. The myth that most concerns my cooking repertoire involves a popular food item known as pasta. Perhaps you've also cooked pasta once or twice (or every day of my life) and could benefit from the following tidbit...
Pasta Must Be Cooked in Massive Amounts of Boiling Water
Well, this one is actually true, but only if you are dealing with really fresh (as in you rolled it yourself) pasta. With dried pasta, as long as the pasta is completely covered in water, it'll cook just fine. People cite the fact that a large pot of water will lose less heat than a small pot of water when you add pasta to it, but this is in fact not true. There is a difference between heat (energy) and temperature (a value based on how much energy a given amount of a given substance holds).

So, it's indeed true that a large pot of water will show a smaller decrease in temperature than a small pot of water, but the amount of energy needed to bring that water back up to a boil when you add the pasta to it is exactly the same, no matter how much water you have. In fact, because a small pot loses less energy to the outside environment because of its smaller surface area, it will actually return to a boil faster than a large pot of water will.

Moreover, you don't even need to keep the water all that hot. Cover your pasta with boiling water, bring it back to a boil, put a lid on it, and remove it from the heat. It'll cook just as fast and evenly as a pot that's kept at a rolling boil for the entire duration of cooking, plus it'll shave a few pennies off your gas bill!
Got that?! Read all 6 food myths here.

You're probably tilting your head and/or your computer back and forth trying to figure out what the heck is going on in the photo above. That's because Eugene Kagansky's newly-opened coffee bar has been flipped onto its side -- literally. At D'Espresso, located just one block away from the New York Public Library at Bryant Park, the walls looks like they're the floor and vice versa.
Glazed tiles printed with images of books create the illusion of bookshelves tilted sideways, running along the ceiling, down the rear wall and onto the floor. Another wall is covered in herringbone-patterned oak flooring. And the spherical glass lights jut out horizontally from behind the bar, rather than hanging from the ceiling.

According to my unofficial research, the first admission from the Gap that they've adopted a new logo design came in the form of a tweet at around 9:30pm EST on Wednesday.

Is this rebranding a worse faux pas than tapered jeans, or are people obsessing and freaking out over nothing?
