Celosia, otherwise known as cockscomb. People either love it or they hate it. Like sardines. LOVE THEM, and did you know that although you can't feel good about half the fish you eat these days, sardines remain a tried and true, responsibly-fished delectable. Snacks, you know? Love snacks. A sardine on a piece of hard tack with butter? then things are getting serious...
And speaking of food, celosia (which belongs in the amaranth family) is quite edible and grows across Central and West Africa, and is one of the leading leafy green vegetables in Nigeria, where it is known as ‘soko yokoto’, meaning "make husbands fat and happy." That's straight from the internet, because i couldn't make that up.

Saw I Am Love last night. One of the most beautiful movies - Tilda Swinton is a goddess onscreen and the guy who plays Edo isn't so bad either.
Not really NEWS:
Searsucker on Smith Street is not all that great. I'm curious if you've had a good meal there...perhaps I'm tired of restaurant's being so squeaky clean, aesthetically speaking... and having to have a schtick. (Southern comfort food, in this case. Which to be fair, might just not be my thing. Also not my thing is an under seasoned, soggy crab salad...and for the record Fort Defiance makes a better deviled egg.)
