Holly Miranda is performing tonight and BV just casually mentions it in this show list. If BV doesn't care, why should I

3:22, do you know how I pronounce it to piss ON people?

"OPEN UP, GRANDMA!"

It's an obscure subtle pronunciation.

3:22: What does "lol" mean? Is that a word or one of those internet expressions?

Also, how can we be sure words mean anything?

Also, what's going on Wednesday?

what are shows at home sweet home like?

Posted by Anonymous | September 12, 2012 4:21 PM

Like trying to watch a band in your living room while conveying passive agressive messages between parents who refuse to speak to one another. Also casserole.

Thank you for typing out with your hands the sound you made with your mouth

In a food processor, combine the chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, 1/2 cup water, and olive oil. Process until smooth. Add salt, starting at a half a teaspoon, to taste.

Serve with pita bread. You can cut the pita bread into thin triangles, brush with olive oil and toast for 10 minutes in a 400°F oven to make pita chips with which to serve the hummus.
