Yet Another "Tinker's Damned" Open Thread

I made a few changes, and added a few features.

Tell me what you think!

Bob Mould: Mindreader

I seem to have been on the same wavelength as Bob Mould lately.

First, we have both taken a simultaneous interest in the Shepard Smith gossip. And then today I noticed that he has dusted off his SWERVEDRIVER records lately, which I too have been doing for the past week or so.

...weird, huh?

Fitzmas Fizzle?

Rachel Maddow is fond of pointing out that it's completely pointless to try to predict what may happen in the whole Rovakgate Leak Investigation thing, but the fix seems to be coming in, and it's not the orgasmic frog-march we were hoping for. Still, John from AMERICAblog tries to find a silver lining.

Celebrity News Roundup

Yes, Bush blinked and we're all still wrapping our presents for Fitzmas, but when I paid my daily visit to Raw Story, it was of course the story about Seigfried taunting Roy that first caught my eye. Top it off with this shocking revelation from Mr. Sulu, and you have a news cycle that could have sprung from a Simpsons episode.

Merry Fitzmas!!!

Keeping Busy?

Me too.

In fact, I had very much hoped to have Thursday and Friday off so that I could get back in the Indecent Digit saddle, but sadly this was not to be. Money talks, and mass overtime talks even louder, but with a lisp.

Anyway, the big news of the day is that it's not yet Fitzmas. I'm guessing Friday, but I'm the patient type.

To keep yourself from gettin' too stupid in my absence, please visit the Propoganda links to your right on a regular basis. START NOW!!!

VITTLES OF THE DAMNED: Breakfast at Rosey’s

Possession makes a girl hungry – and usually too weak to cook for herself. So this morning Laurence and I went to Rosey’s on Rogers, the latest reincarnation of the Eddie’s Grocery building, located on the Westside of Olympia by the co-op on Rogers & Bowman.

Those of you who live in Olympia but have yet to partake of Rosey’s fare should rectify the situation as soon as possible. Today I stuck with the old standby of eggs-over-easy with their heavenly herbed grits and chorizo sausage. You can always tell a good fry-cook by how he fries an egg – and these eggs were perfect with deep orange yolks. So yummy… and nutritious! While slopping my herbed grits about in the egg yolks, I marveled at how amazing they were – and we’re north of the Mason Dixon line! The herbs used in the grits complimented the eggs perfectly. The cook or owner must be from the South because this is the first restaurant I’ve frequented in the NW that even offered grits for breakfast. Again, so yummy… I ordered the chorizo sausage special, and it was gooood – perfect for someone prone to dousing their eggs with Tapatio.

I can also recommend from previous experience the Hazelnut pancakes. I once thought the pancakes at The Breakfast Place in Damariscotta, Maine were the best I would ever eat. I was wrong. Also, if they are offering a Chanterelle mushroom, bacon and green apple omelet as a special – you should definitely order it. It’s a bit pricey at $13.95 but well worth it for the culinary experience. The only thing I’ve had there so far that I wasn’t totally happy with was the Tex Mex Migas. I thought it was a bit bland, uninteresting and a little soggy. However, a friend of mine had it once before and he liked it a lot – and it looked much better – so maybe they were having an off day. The service wasn’t great that day either, so maybe everyone was having a bad day since it seemed the boss man was there.

All in all I can highly recommend Rosey’s for breakfast. We have yet to eat dinner there, but will give you a full report when we do.
