The reception area at MinkWell’s World HQ are all set for Halloween and waiting for trick or treaters. Speaking of which, I was at a friends house last weekend and they introduced me to the glory of “The Paul Lynde Halloween Special” which they bought from amazon. It is awful, but for all the right reasons. I guess you would call it a variety hour kind of show, but the casting has shades Love Boat, like lets get the most random celebs of moment and put them on a big boat. Well Paul’s boat features Betty White, Tim Conway, Witchiepoo from H.R. Pufnstuf, Margret Hamilton doing her Wicked Witch of the West from The Wizard of Oz, Florence Henderson, Donny and Marie, and in their first televised appearance KISS. Amaze-ballz.

I was running some errands last week and found this bookstore. What a catch! The interior was designed by Lot-Ek and comprised of salvaged doors that tumble down the center of the store. The Van Alen Institute mission is “to promote inquiry into the processes that shape the design of the public realm.” That might come off as a bit high and mighty, but don’t let it fool you, the staff is incredibly helpful and friendly.

Currently there is a tree in my backyard that won’t stop producing apples. Luckily my motto has always been “When Life Gives You Too Many Apples, Make A Galette”. It also helps when you have a boyfriend who can make pie dough in his sleep. A division of labor is key to making this dessert quickly: I peel the apples, he cuts them into wedge shapes, removes the seeds and marinates the fruit in a pool of lemon and orange juices. The scent that will come from your oven might be the second best part of this dessert. The best part? You’ll have to make one and find out.
