5 Things That Food Network's Sandra Lee Is Ruining For Me

By me I don't mean me, Cary, but the author of this list, long-time FOLOTD Noreen Hobson. From Antenna Free TV.

I happened to catch Semi-Homemade Cooking with Sandra Lee on the Food Network the other day. Apparently, the episode was titled “Easy Elegance.” Full disclosure: I never watch this show. I think it occasionally comes on after a good cooking show. Maybe it came on after I watched Giada De Laurentiis make something lovely in her fantasy kitchen.

Anyway, as tends to happen often with Sandra Lee, she just started wrecking stuff. So in the spirit of her show and my disgust with it, I present Five Things Sandra Lee is Ruining for Me

1. Setting the table

Call it a “tablescape” all you want, Sandra Lee, but all you’re really doing here is setting a table, and you don’t need to cover every square inch of the table with … stuff! I enjoy setting the table sometimes, especially for special occasions or holidays, but I generally leave room on the table for things like food. Or plates. Or air. (Does Lee sometimes really put sand on the table?) The more Lee over decorates a table and calls a set table a tablescape, the more I want to set my table with Dixie plates and brown industrial paper towels.

Posters Of The Day: Super Mario As WWII Propaganda Art

From Design Taxi: "A graphic artist and web designer from Los Angeles, Fernando Reza has created a selection of Super Mario posters, done in the style of World War II propaganda. Reza has changed the slogans slightly to fit the in-game universe of Super Mario, while staying true to the aesthetics and composition of these vintage posters"

News: Drunk Arrestee Tries To Pee Out Police Car Window, Fails

Drunk Man On Way To Jail Attempts To Urinate Out Window Of Moving Sheriff's Cruiser, Fails Spectacularly

Meet Devin Langford.

While handcuffed in the back of a patrol car following a drunk driving arrest, the 23-year-old Floridian attempted to urinate out the window of the moving car, an audacious effort that failed miserably when Langford “misaimed” and showered the cruiser’s interior with urine, police report.

According to an Indian River County Sheriff’s Office report, Langford was pulled over last month for speeding by Deputy Brian Bell.

Besides noting that Langford had “red, glassy, and bloodshot eyes” and slurred speech, Bell also reported spotting “a plethora of empty beer cans” littering Langford’s truck.

After failing a series of field sobriety tests, Langford was arrested by Bell and then placed in a squad car for transport to the county jail for booking.

En route to the lockup, Langford informed Bell that he needed to urinate. The deputy initially told the detainee that he would have to wait until they arrived at the jail. But Langford knew he would not last that long.

So, as Bell reported, Langford “asked me if he could urinate in my car.”

Deputy Bell--in a remarkably magnanimous gesture--told the arrestee that “if he had to urinate in my car, that I understood.”
