Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
Blog Guy, do you have a personal guiding philosophy of life? You know, three or four words that express your world view?
Wow! What did it say? What is this new moral compass that guides your spiritual essence?
“Pie…the Perfect Gift.”
That’s it? Pie…the Perfect Gift?
Yep. I was like blown away by the truth and wisdom of it. It’s so zen. Who doesn’t want the gift of pie? Be they Democrat or Republican, be it fruit or cream or custard, key lime, lemon meringue, chocolate….
Blog Guy, has your Thanksgiving Williams-Sonoma catalog arrived yet? I can’t wait to see what expensive specialty gadgets we need to help us prepare the most traditional meal of all.
Blog Guy, anything new for us from Williams-Sonoma? I’m starting my Christmas shopping early this year.
You know, I think I pick on them too much. I mean, those folks are just trying to make a living with their $2,399.95 espresso machine, to choose an item at random from the new catalog.
Blog Guy, you haven’t shared any of those fancy Williams-Sonoma items recently, the ones for foodies with too much money. Don’t they have a new catalog out?
They do indeed, and I recommend you try making their clay chicken.
Clay chicken? Isn’t the phrase CLAY PIGEON?
Nope, this is something they call a “fun and easy way to cook chicken.” It involves two chickens and nine pounds of clay, which hardens around the meat during the process. Then, when you’re ready to serve it, you slam it with a big mallet to crack the clay open.
Blog Guy, I’ve been a real fan of Williams-Sonoma, that shop for pretentious foodies, ever since I first read about it here. Is their Summer Cookout Catalog out yet?
Yes, and it’s fabulous! I recommend this item at the top, the Deluxe Outdoor Guacamole Maker, $299.99. You can serve up perfect fresh guacamole, while your guests watch with envy!

c) A very early version of the Cuisinart, in a 1562 Williams-Sonoma catalog. Like everything else, it cost $299.95.
Blog Guy, at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, it seems like the Olympic Flame was under-played. You know, they used to carry a torch all the way around the world, and it was a big deal.
I agree with you. This year, some guy just sat there and talked into a phone, and then flames came out of an electric gizmo.
