Random Thursday: Three Noms and a Not

I apologize in advance for the banana.


Location, Location, Location?

Sprinkles, a designer cupcake bakery, has decided to make their products available 24/7  by opening cupcake “ATM” at  their locations in LA—the upscale name is presumably a loophole to get around any Beverly Hills ordinances against “vending machines.”

I have to admit, it’s pretty shiny.

Though if I’m craving cupcakes that badly at midnight, I’d probably go for a box of Hostess—or better yet, Zingers—from the nearest GasMart.  You get eight for less than four bucks and they have creme filling.

‘Cause I’m just that klassy.


Edible Art

A Chinese street vendor makes the most beautiful snack I’ve ever seen.

You can see this little boy thinking, “But . . . if I eat it . . . it will be gone.”


The First Sign of Spring

And the reason I traditionally give up dieting for Lent.

If you haven’t tried at least one of these and you don’t have a tragic medical reason for not doing so,* do so.

Start with the original.

You can thank me later.


I Can’t Explain This One

Except to say that I must have a dirty mind, because I’m still not sure if it’s Safe for Work or not . . .

 . . . and I did say I was sorry.


*Which, in my opinion, includes not caring much for chocolate.  This isn’t just a pathology, it’s a crime against Nature, which wants us to be happy and evolved cacao trees specifically to do the job.

  1. Moderation in moderation?? Brilliant.

    Those cupcake ATMs were all over the business news today. All I could think was how crazy that some people can’t get grocery stores in their neighborhoods and wealthy neighborhoods get cupcake ATMs. So I left work and went for a walk, my new thing instead of stuffing myself from the vending machine when I can’t take it. I walked about a mile and as I was coming back to my building there was a green food truck (the latest food craze has made its way to Chicago). What kind? A CUPCAKE truck.
    It took everything I had not to stop. Well, not everything. I don’t think I could pay 4 bucks for a cupcake. Ever. But man did they look good.
    So being that I believe in signs, what are the cupcakes trying to tell me????

    • I have no idea, Lyra — if a food doesn’t come wrapped in or stuffed with a fortune, all I ever hear it say is, “Eat me.”

      Sometimes this is helpful, but it’s never really profound. 🙂

    • I would SO pay $4 for a cupcake. LOOK AT THEM!!! The cute little box, the perfect treat within!!! And they’re big enough to share, so really it’s a $2 cupcakelet!!! (Don’t you love my logic?)

      (Used up my monthly allotment of exclamation points.)

  2. I thought no one ate in LA?

    I’m not “allowed” to watch the banana video due to my geographic location. Can’t decide if I should be mad or grateful.

    • That was my understanding, but then again, who would all those people feel pseudo-superior to, if there weren’t any real-sized people around? Plus those are designer cupcakes, so there’s probably some caché to casually carrying them around to “save for later.”

      Wow . . . I must be in a mood . . .

      You can’t get the Bananan vid?! Try YouTubing “Cartoon Network Banana Dance.” Or if you can access Cartoon Network, watch it for five minutes . . . Or you could just send a letter of thanks to the broadcasting regulators, because I’ve been humming that thing for a week now. 😀
