Coke Chick

Check out the new Sisley billboard ad - featuring models doing lines of coke off of the dress.

Can you imagine some poor mom walking with her daughters around time square and being asked "Mommy, what are those ladies doing?"

Diversity

Now that Rome Girl has been working for Calendar Communications for a while I can see how totally different our work habits are.

For me, as a freelancer, I get paranoid if I don't have any jobs to work on. Something in the back of my brain says "Nobody will ever hire your white ass again." So, I like to do a little bit of work every day, ensuring that I always have something work related to do when I wake up.

Rome Girl on the other hand is all Alpha Dog about it. She assumes that I'm smart enough to get both of us enough work to eat on. So, when her jobs come in she just gets them done as quickly as humanly possible, even if it means working til midnight. That way she can take entire days off from work and just chill out.

The thing is as far as I can tell the clients can't tell the difference. I guess as long as we make deadline it doesn't really matter.

Bachelor Cooking Chapter Two

My recipe for Mac N Cheese can seriously get you laid. I'm not sure why, but it almost never fails.

The weird thing is that it works best and gets the most rave reviews from girls who say that in general they don't like Mac N Cheese. So, I guess this is a Mac N Cheese recipe that doesn't taste like Mac N Cheese.

Anyway, it's cheap to make, fills your belly and has a high "comfort food" ratio.

GOURMET MAC N CHEESE

Step One: Purchase a box of macaroni, two bags of the shredded cheese of your choice, a garlic bulb, a small bottle of cheap white wine and some butter.

Step Two: If you are in America buy some cheap smoked ham from the deli and cut it up in small chunks. If you are in Europe purchase a package or two of lardons.

Step Three: Throw some oil in a pan. Break up the garlic bulb and throw that in the oil.

Step Four: Turn on the stove. I can't stress this point enough.

Step Five: Throw the ham or lardons into the pan and stir.

Step Six: After the ham or lardons have cooked enough (Rome Girl likes them crispy, but you can really do this to your own personal taste) pour about 250ml of white wine over the ham/garlic concoction.

Step Seven: Turn heat to the lowest possible setting and let wine/ham/garlic simmer for like 30 minutes. Stir every so often.

Step Eight. Cook macaroni in boiling water.

Step Nine: Drain macaroni. Put half a stick of butter and one of the cheese packages into the pasta. Stir a bunch.

Step 10: Pour the wine/ham/garlic concoction (do real cooks call this "stock") over the macaroni and stir a lot.

Step 11. Pour the second package of cheese into the macaroni. Stir some more.

Step 12. Let entire thing sit for like 15 minutes so the cheese can become less hot and stringy.

Step 13: Eat.
