I’m learning some very important things

I’m fascinated by the “blog stats” feature on WordPress. Recently, people have gotten to my blog by searching for: “miss rap supreme,” “diablo cody,” “girl,” and “all my hair cut off.” Oh, and also “brussels.”

The lesson here is that I need to make more pop culture references in my posts so that people find them. I’ll try to be subtle in my blatant attempt to get more than 14 views a day.

Rob Lowe nanny scandal.

Dinner was fast and easy (unlike Rob Lowe’s legal battle with former nanny). Lemon/garlic/rosemary chicken with roasted potatoes and broccoli and cauliflower.

This is the kind of dinner I love to cook when I don’t feel well, because I spent about 2 minutes on it, total. The recipe for the chicken is from a Robin Miller cookbook, and all I did was season the chicken, dice some potatoes to roast with it, and put one of those steam-in-bag vegetable things in the microwave. The chicken and potatoes were good, but I couldn’t finish mine, so I had half of what you see here. I guess those smart chickens are intelligent enough to make themselves super hearty. The steamed vegetables were, well, vegetables steamed in a microwaveable bag. So, you know. Kind of bland.

After dinner, I finally made a Good Choice and had coffee for dessert. Instead of a slice of cake and two cookies, which was what I really wanted.

I ended up icing it because it’s like 900 degrees in our apartment. Which bodes really well for the summer.

I ended up having some peanut butter to complement this. I can’t be perfect ALL THE TIME.

And, now you all know that I completely lack pop culture knowledge because I can’t think of anything except that Rob Lowe thing, and that’s only because I randomly saw it scroll across a screen yesterday, and then my sister confirmed it for me.

I just asked Matt to help me, because he does a lot more reading of the internet at large than I do. Here’s how it went:

Me: What’s something pop cultural that I can reference?

Matt: Secret Invasion.

Me: That’s a comic. I mean, like, an event.

Matt: It’s an event comic. It’s the crossover event of the year. God.

So, okay, here’s my final attempt.

Secret Invasion spoilers.

Actually, I think I’m going to go hide stuff like “Suri Cruise” and “Jamie Lynn Spears” in my code. That’s pop culture, right? People still care about them

    Clemence Poesy pretty much rocks a couple different dimensions of the pop culture universe. She’s in a Harry Potter movie. She’s French. And, she does ads for perfume with Chloe Sevigny, so there’s a little indie cred. You should find out what kind of food she eats and make that.

    What’s Harry Potter?

    Did Matt make you ask that? Tell him it’s a graphic novel about a boy with special powers. It’s from the “all text” genre of graphic novels, where all the graphics are reserved for the covers. Very crossover.
