Fun stuff for today:

The new Knitty is out!

Check out dollarshort's MASH game. It's a little different than I remember, but somehow I still managed to get the 13 kids, drive a Datsun, and live in a shack with the only one of my exes who is married. Hee hee!

Hit Bumptious today and read the entry for June 8. Strip clubs - gotta love 'em. Why is it that straight women always want to take guys to see naked women? Is it to prove how cool we are?

To all the straight women out there: if you occasionally have the feeling that all straight men are simply on the earth to make you miserable, check out XTC's Church of Women lyrics (off WASP STAR). I will admit that Andy Partridge has slipped into sentimentality as he's aged (Andy, love, there are now three songs in the last ten years that are solely about your penis!), but this is a man who thinks that women are the best thing ever.

Church of Women/Is made out of milk/Which their love turns to butter/Church of Women/Will have you give praise/With a laugh, bark and stutter/Like us men, like us men/They are nothing like us men/Men have gargoyles round their hearts/I'm on my knees but dancing/Want to worship/At the church of women/Breathe 'em in/Until my head goes spinning round/Want to worship at the church/Let me worship at the church of women

Thank you, Andy. Kaetchen is happy now.

A couple of people have emailed me for info about Korean food; I'm no expert, but here's a site that may be of help. I've been eating Korean most of my life, which is entirely due to my dad being an adventurous eater. If I haven't said it before, Daddy, you rock.
