The Week In Travel: March 19, 2010

Posted on
Mar 19, 2010

It’s another sunny day here in Seattle, and tomorrow we’re leaving for a trip to New York, and on to Miami after that. I’ve got loads of posts to get up, some relevant, some sentimental, and nearly all of them including the phrase “crazy f*ckers.” I suppose I should clean up my language, but … eh.

This week’s The Week In Travel brings unprovoked occupation of countries with which we have peaceful relations, dangerous footwear and more.

————-

Apparently, we should invade New Zealand. Unless they visit this site, they’ll never see it coming.

Though perhaps we’ve done enough invading as of late.

Oh, and did you know that the president of Poland has a twin brother who used to be the Prime Minister? They occassionally joke that if one of them wins an office, the other will serve. I smell a screenplay, starring, oh, let’s say Richard Dreyfuss. (Thank you to Rob for telling us about this and insisting it was true even when Rand and I called b.s. on it).

In slightly less unbelievable news, the New York Times Frugal Traveler Blog has an amazing write-up on how to book flights (the frugal way).

Continuing with the zombie trend that has, for some reason, been coloring my life as of late, Aussie gamers are dressing up as the walking dead in order to protest a lack of mature video game ratings in Australia (anything rated mature is automatically banned from sale in the country). While violent video games aren’t my thing, if you get to dress up a zombie for your cause, I say go for it.

And brilliant blogger Deanna nearly drives me to tears with this tweet.

Oh, and while it’s a week late, a belated congrats to Eytan Seidman of Oyster.com fame on his wedding. We had a fantastic time – windstorms, downed power lines, and all.

And that’s the week that was. Keep reading the blog for upcoming posts on New Orleans, Sleepy Hollow, New York, and more.

  • Crazy sky on my morning walk, and despite a childhood spent in Florida, it took me a while to realize that rumbling sound was thunder. I made it back just a few minutes before it started pouring down.
  • Look at these perfect little fuckers my husband ordered for me. Thanks, @emeraldpalate for the recommendation. So excited to try these. #notanad
  • Made a thing. Apple berry ginger. It bubbled onto the crust. It always does that. I need to figure that part out. Fewer vents, I think.
  • Ugh, hard same, gems. Hard same.

Watching this sweet show made lockdown a little easier. #stevenuniverse #stevenuniversefuture
  • It is the apex of privilege that I can walk around my neighborhood, face covered, and know that no one will think twice about it. Trying to be more aware of that privilege, and how I can use it for good. But even talking about it feels self-congratulatory. #irunwithmaud
  • When Alison Roman says to put her slow roasted salmon on a bagel, you do it. This was just lovely.
  • This is the team up I've been waiting for. ❤️❤️❤️
  • Had a video podcast call today. Host joked that the dress code was formal. Challenge accepted. (I've never had the chance to wear this dress out.)
  • Make Kouign Amann, they said. It'll be easy, they said. You definitely won't set off two smoke alarms, they said. #quarantinebaking #kouignamann #instadesserts
  • Would I go so far as to call myself a baking genius? Yes. Yes, I would. 😅

My family is from the south, so we would call this pizza bianca ("white pizza) - and nobody really made it at home. But I became obsessed with it when we went to Genoa, and Rand and I seek out whenever we're in Liguria. We may have canceled our Italy trip, but I'll be damned if I'm not eating all the carbs. #saminnosrat #focaccia #saltacidfatheat
