A Gift and Deep Dish Pizza

I have decided to participate in the National Blog Post Month for November.  That means I am going to be posting each day in November.

As part of my commitment to NaBloPoMo this month,  I am also entering all of my posts on the BlogHer web site.   My posts on there are not getting much attention.  I have only had a couple of visits on each post.  Perhaps my topics are not controversial enough.  Perhaps I don’t fit into the desired demographics.  Oh my, I sound like I have a bad case of sour grapes.  But I am not discouraged and I will continue to persevere.

November 13, 2013 - The photos were taken about four something this evening after Ross and I came back from our 20-30 minute walk. 

It was pretty chilly today.  The temperature this morning at 7:00 was 26 degrees Fahrenheit.  The wind chill brought the temp down to 18 degrees.

I have a special occasion to attend this Saturday.  It’s the type of event which requires a gift.  I was going to go with the standard all purpose gift card but since the honoree of the party is quite special to me, I wished I could think of something more thoughtful and personal.   I came up with an idea late this morning that I think would be perfect. But, since it is last minute, and only a few days before the day of the affair, I’m not sure I will have enough time to pull it off.  I am already having second thoughts and might have to go back to my original, not so original idea of the gift card.

While I am writing this, I am watching Jon Stewart.  He is on a rant about Chicago style pizza, stuffed pizza, or deep dish pizza.   He’s very funny.  I love when he goes into his Brooklyn, New York accent.

From the website
In honor of New York City's One World Trade Center being named the tallest building in the U.S., besting Chicago's Willis Tower, Jon Stewart fueled NYC-Chicago rivalry with an epic rant against Chicago's deep dish pizza. "When I look at your deep dish f*ckin' pizza, I don't know whether to eat it or throw a coin in it and make a wish," Stewart says. "And if I made a wish, it would be that I'd wish for some real f*ckin' pizza."Stewart — who has ranted about poor pizza choices before — claims deep dish is not even pizza but "a f*ckin' casserole" and just tears into every aspect of Chicago deep dish, from the sauce being on top "on display like some sort of sauce whore" to the extra thick crust. He suggests that since it gets so cold in Chicago, maybe a thick pizza is needed so folks can "cut it open and climb inside of it like a Tauntaun to keep warm." "This is not pizza," Stewart rants. "This is tomato soup in a bread bowl. This is an above ground marinara swimming pool for rats." He gets a few digs in at the Chicago dog, too. Go, watch:
