Hipster Dogs In Sleeping Bags

First, I would like to apologize for the seeming incoherence of the last post. I was mostly asleep. I was mostly asleep and watching “Pirates of the Caribbean” and wishing I was Zoe Saldana. Can you get much more fierce, fit, fab, and fun?


If I looked like that, I’d never wear anything more than a bra, panties, and a smile. That may get cold, but I can always move.

Right now I am watching David Gregory on the “Today Show” look like a TOTAL douche about wine. Let me let you in on a little tip, you can only talk about wine like a sommelier IF you are a sommelier. My cousin, IS a master sommelier (apparently, that is REALLY hard to get. I am a master wino, it’s a little different and very easily achievable.) anyways, he IS a sommelier/chef and I start to do my grocery list or picture him in “Sideways” while he’s talking about wine. (You’re still my main wine homeslice, Tom.) Right now, David Gregory has a corduroy jacket over an ed hardy tee shirt in my head. OH BUT IF I ONLY KNEW HOW TO PHOTOSHOP!!

So in order to complete my transformation into the thing I am annoyed with the most; hipsters, I have developed a pigs in the blanket recipe for your holiday needs. It’s good. I suggest eating them while listening to Architecture in Helsinki or Sigur Ros, and while wearing your favorite pair of Warby Parker glasses. (SHIT! I just got my husband a pair! DAMN YOU!!!)

Anyways. They are fab. They are delightful. They are Chicago style pigs in a blanket. You’re welcome, hipsters.
