"No, Thanks...Just Finished My Raw Sewage Shake"


Probably the least appetizing display at The Farmer's Market at Third & Fairfax, Los Angeles. While it had some pretty tough competition, the loose poo-shaped elephants were probably what clinched it for our judges. Order yours today -- in stunning yellow snow and Kaopectate pink. Mmm-mmm good!

Luckily, we didn't see this thing until after we enjoyed an early dinner at the counter at Monsieur Marcel, my favorite place at The Farmer's Market, and very romantic in the late afternoon. Great wines and cheeses -- even a few unpasteurized ones (meaning they haven't had all the flavor cooked out, à l'Americain). Taste one and understand what you've been missing. And, for a real treat, order my personal favorite meal, the lamb chops (which I get rare) with goat cheese rounds melted on top. Oh. La. La.

As for all of my friends in New York who made fun of me for moving to Lost Angeles, where all the dumb people live, there was not a soul camping out outside the Apple store at The Grove...which is more than we can say for the quote whore, first in line (the guy with the sign), and the rest of the motley crew becoming the eyesore of upper Fifth Avenue.

Amy, have you found The Little Next Door yet? (over on 3rd st west of Fairfax) They now have an outdoor breakfast/lunch café, and a bakery, deli and wine section. It's become our "French fix" when we're jonesing for the good ham like we had in Paris.

You didn't tell them about the art film we saw at the Grove. It contained the memorable line (slightly paraphrased) [your girlfriend's] "“at the bottom of an elevator shaft with an SUV rammed up her ass.”

I think it's a cute cake.

Would you eat it? Would you take it into your body?

Crid, I haven't been able to have sugar for 6 months. I'd lick the damn plate clean.
