Spiral-cut hot dogs, 50 Sheds of Gray, and other delights

This video has changed my life. It’s the most simple yet revolutionary way I’ve seen yet to cook a hot dog! You spiral cut it so it’s like a spring made of pureed meat-stuff and not only does it cook without bending, but you get more crispy surface area and toppings will slip between the spirally bits to fully integrate into each bite you take instead of sitting on top so you get a mouthful of condiments sans wiener! My mind! She is blown!

I am not a fan of 50 Shades of Grey but I can totally get behind 50 Sheds of Grey! Brilliant satire!

Over at Women Write about ComicsMelinda Beasi talks girls comics, blogging, and international manga fandom. Melinda has a lot of intelligent things to say about comics.

I ran across this excellent essay, Why Gandalf Never Married 1985 talk by Terry Pratchett, earlier this week.

And finally, Why Tweeting is Good for your Mental Health. Ha! So there! I’m mentally healthy even if Twitter does, occasionally, make me feel stabby.
