cheesecake getting recalled,
do you now? No, you don't.
Anyway, because we are all about safety first up in here, here's your PSA for the day:
Don't eat cantaloupe from Colorado. And since you probably can't tell where it's from, hold up on the cantaloupe until this is all sorted out.
Apparently, something like 15 people have died as a result of contracting listeria from the tainted fruit. I'm going to be honest here; I'm not really sure what exactly listeria is, but I know you don't want it. I mean, I have enough of an idea that I didn't feel compelled to look it up to get extra information (don't worry, The Party will be by soon to tell us because he won't be able to stand that I didn't look it up).
I hope my sharing this information doesn't set off one of those Oprah things where the whole cantaloupe industry sues me for affecting sales. Yes, I know I don't have quite the following or pull that Oprah does, but it could happen. You don't know.
In other news, the Phillies are in the playoffs. Right now they are playing the Cardinals. The Yankees are playing someone too I think. I really don't know/care. You know why? Because even if I was a total baseball fanatic, this isn't even real playoffs. I mean it is, but it's like the playoffs to be in the playoffs for World Series. Then it will be the World Series. I believe baseball will end in December some time, so there's plenty-o-baseball left if you're interested. If you're not, you're SOL. Football has started, so I guess you can distract yourself with that. Or read a book or something.
I am very excited to report that Arrested Development will have new episodes coming out, followed by a movie. For those of you who have never watched, I can't stress to you more strongly the need for you to go rent or buy the original three seasons and catch up. The Party and I didn't start watching it until it was in reruns and couldn't have been sadder it was cancelled. Really, go watch it.

Nothing else too exciting this weekend. So in summary:
1. Don't eat cantaloupe, but don't say I said that.
2. 2011 baseball season has another 11 months to go.
3. Find a way other than unfortunate eyebrows to make a statement (unless the statement you are making is that you are off your meds).
