Today is an awesome day. Remember that mouthwatering pizza cake by Boston Pizza that we posted about a few months ago? Of course you do, we’ve all been dreaming about it ever since. Well there must be a fairy godmother over at Pillsbury, because they just made our overindulgent dream come true. Not only did they create their own scrumptious pepperoni pizza cake, they published an easy recipe so we can all go home and make pizza cakes of our own, the sooner the better.
Have you ever been told you’re “Too Much”? Too intense, too emotional, too personal, too wild, weird, crazy, sensitive, insatiable, not enough of one thing & too much of everything?… Good! Your too-muchness is exactly the kick the world needs to wake the hell up and be more than a shadow of better times. So don’t silence your excesses, don’t try to become less in order to fit in with the dead. Your creation will be richer, your art will have more heart, your story, more epic, thanks to your intensity.
You keep telling me about moderation. That a little is enough. But sometimes for some of us, a little is not enough. Because, when it comes to something like wild walks or vulnerability or truth or heart - racing conversation or ecstatic contemplation or mind bending intimacy or all that catapults us into the flow, form and timelessness of our own aliveness, I am telling you that we deserve more than moderation.
Pizza is pretty much always a good thing, but what sort of super awesome, cheese-packed, dream come true is this? Canadian pizza chain Boston Pizza recently launched a new marketing campaign, entitled “Pizza Game Changers“, for which they are asking their customers to vote on what new items they’d most like to see on their summer menu.
Their promise is “If you like it, we will make it,” and the ideas currently on the virtual ballot include pizza mints, a gas-powered pizza cutter, pizza cheese clippers, the pizza pocket, pizza car fresheners, the pizza protector, the pizza beardkin, and the glorious pizza cake pictured here.
The six-layer pizza cake is currently in the lead, so we’re hopeful that this gloriously overindulgent pizza fantasy becomes a reality.
Loners, if you catch them, are well worth the trouble. Not dulled by excess human contact, nor blasé or focused on your crotch while jabbering about themselves, loners are curious, vigilant, full of surprises. They do not cling. Separate wherever they go, awake or asleep, they shimmer with the iridescence of hidden things seldom seen.
Anneli Rufus, Party of One: The Loners’ Manifesto
I used to always say “you can’t expect people to treat you how you’d treat them” I think I just used that as an excuse to keep a lot of excess in my life. You should expect to be treated with kindness, respect, consideration, and actions should be motivated by good intentions.
It was created by the folks at Score on Davie, a bar located in Vancouver, BC. They call it the ’Checkmate Caesar’ and its gargantuan garnish features a whole roast chicken, a bacon cheeseburger, a pulled pork mac & cheese hot dog (just pause and consider this hot dog for a moment, because, wow), chicken wings, a slider, one triumphant pickle spear, roasted veggies (to make it healthy) and a whipped cream-covered brownie (for dessert).
