Awesome Shit That I Want Monday

If you’re anything like me, you’re always being invited to multi-course dinner parties at the homes of the social elite, and you’re running out of clever hostess gift ideas.

Right? I mean, that bottle of wine you picked? Not only does it NOT complement the jellied chicken and tarragon terrine at all, but a 1989? I give 1989 reds to the dog, and even he doesn’t drink them. All you’re doing here is embarrassing yourself and frankly, it’s a little painful.

Instead, give your gracious host or hostess something useful in the kitchen. To wit: salt made from tears of sorrow. You could opt for salt made from tears of anger or laughter, but I find that nothing adds the tantalizing but unidentifiable complexity that really makes a dish hum like tears of sorrow.

  1. salt made from tears of remorse leave a bitter aftertaste…
    (sorry, haven’t had the second cup ‘o joe yet, thats the best I got.)

  2. @guys, i’m sorry about the shipping thing. maybe i can get a UK blogger friend to hook us up.

    @kayb, i don’t think it does, but i can’t be certain (the fine print says it’s just salt and lavender).

  3. I’m interested in buying some ( tears of ANGER and tears of LAUGHTER) and am in the US. Please find us a blogger friend to help.

  4. Yeah, I would totally be in if you could get some shipped stateside. Sooner the better, this would make a PERFECT gift for my aunt’s birthday in August.

  5. I wonder what they charge for duty on salt Made From Tears of Sorrow and if there are different rates for different emotions. Awesome find Michelle, love this!

  6. Greetings from California! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to check out your blog on my iphone during lunch break.
    I love the information you present here and can’t wait to take
    a look when I get home. I’m surprised at how fast your blog loaded on
    my phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G ..
