Last night while tearing through some work I had to finish, I was watching my bitchin' DVD set for Justice Leage: Season One, which rocks SO hard. Honestly, I am more excited about watching a new episode of Justice League than I am about seeing the new X-Men film. The lame-ass "movie X-Men" fight stupid boring crap instead of the bad-ass enemies they get in the comic books, so who cares?
But the Justice League cartoons are just as exciting as the comics, if not more so. It's a comic book lover's dream come true...
And speaking of super-heroes, I was my own super-hero this morning when I totally made Kitty Spangles my bitch on my very first game of double-deck Klondike...
Kitty Spangles Solitaire was recently upgraded to 2.0, and now includes some other versions of the game (like Freecell, Spider, and Yukon). Even better, it's free to registered owners which was pretty swell.
And speaking of swell, I finally managed to watch the season finale of Project Catwalk. The best part of the show was when the final three contestants were told that their mentor "Ben" would be paying a visit to their home, but when they opened the door, it was actually a SURPRISE GUEST... Elizabeth Hurley had dropped by...
I would have shat myself right then and there, but the finalists somehow managed to hold it (somewhat) together...
Liz was brutally hot, as always. Even if she did go a little bit crazy in the end there...
Sigh. And so ends my weekly Elizabeth Hurley fix. It sure would be sweet if they bring her back for another season...
And speaking of sweet, has anybody tried "Golden Oreos Originals"??
They kick all kinds of ass, and I am on my way towards devouring my third bag in two weeks. That cannot be good for me, but I am going through a kind of "cookie renaissance" just now and can't help myself. Somebody needs to suggest another awesome cookie so I can use it to break my 3-bag Golden Oreo habit.
I love comments! However, all comments are moderated, and won't appear until approved. Are you an abusive troll with nothing to contribute? Don't bother. Selling something? Don't bother. Spam linking? Don't bother.
It would be the chocolate-mint Oreos, so no help there. Those are even worse, containing even more hydrogenated fats the better to kill you with.
And if Elizabeth Hurley ever does show up on your doorstep, please do not, um…soil yourself. It’s really not the impression you’re going for. You wanna be all, “Oh, hey. I was wondering when you’d get here. Shall we go for some Cheesy Fiesta Potatoes and alcoholic concoctions involving Red Bull now?”
And if you can tell me how to get my child to sleep in the next 5 minutes, and it WORKS, I will give you one million dollars. Because it’s 3:00AM and I’m is sleepy.
Oreos are sadly pretty rare over here – only a few stockists sell them and they’re expensive since they have to be imported. Hari and I got some from Selfridges in Manchester a few weeks ago and they were heavenly.
Can’t remember how much we paid but it was something like £2 ($3.50 USD) for one packet of cookies – not exactly good value. They also had Oreo Cereal at £7, or $12. But then Selfridges’ usual clientele wouldn’t balk at that, I suppose.
two words man, nutter butter. enough said
Why does every “Seal of Approval” post cause my bank account to deplete and my free time to disappear?
GOLDEN OREOS? Good god, man — who cares about ozone depletion when something like this is in stores?
Hmmmm… golden oreos look like round custard creams to me (popular rectangular british biscuit – best dunked in tea). Still, I’d be willing to give them a try, so why don’t you ship some over to me, and in return I will send you some coke with lime, which we seem to have in abundance over here. I wonder if Liz would eat an oreo? It’s doubtful, but I guess thats why she looks like that and I don’t!
“Steak Sauce”? Has someone been watching How I Met Your Mother?
Golden Oreos… will have to try. As for the “how can three bags in two weeks possibly be good for me” crap… you’re 6’1″ (I would guess, if not an inch taller) and you weigh about a buck sixty-five… shut up and eat your damn Oreos.
Your Justice League excitement is giving me flashbacks to when I was a kid jumping off my bed in my Wonder Woman underwear.
As for a cookie suggestion — Tagalongs. They’re filled with a cookie center covered in peanut buttery goodness and coated in smooth milk chocolate. I can eat a whole box in one sitting. Go shake down a Girl Scout and try some.
I like the refrigerated cookie dough, like the Nestle Sugar cookies. They aren’t hard to fix, make me feel the slightest bit domestic even though a monkey could do it and warm cookies sure are good. If you want to get your Martha Stewart vibe on, they even have the kind you can decorate. But plain sugar cookies are good for me.
And, this post shows juuuust how many Golden Oreo’s you’ve eaten this morning. 🙂
Just curious – are you one of those genetically lucky people who don’t have to worry about their cholesterol, or one of those “don’t wanna know” types?
I’m not one of the lucky ones and am chained to low-fat hell forever. Either that or poop-inducing pills, which I prefer not.
I just bought the Justice Leaugue DVD’s for my brother and he hasn’t stopped watching them since he unwrapped them. High quality.
Wait until you try the Golden Oreo shake (recipe is at the kraftfoods website).

First of all, Justice League — I’m on it.
Second of all, Golden Oreos — I’M ON IT!!!!!!!!!
Please tell me they don’t put lard in their filling anymore. I went to Nabisco Web site and looked up the Golden Oreos nutritional value, but since I don’t have a master’s degree in chemical engineering, I’m not sure what the hell it is I’m reading. Plus, there’s always those “none of your business” ingredients that the companies somehow get around telling you about (like how McDonald’s blanches their fries in lard at the factory).
I have no problem with chemicals that kill, only with ingredients that have been killed (you dig), so if there’s no lard, then these babies are mine!!!
Please, I have to replace the void in my life since giving up Sunny Doodles.
Speaking of Cartoons…and nerdy stuff. 🙂
One of our friends is a HUGE Star Wars geek. HUGE. He has all the toys, and everything. He’s addicted to the Clone Wars Cartoon (on DVD). He pretty much takes it everywhere w/ him, and pops it into people’s dvd players….so, I think we’ve all seen it about 20 million times.
Anyhow, it’s not half bad. Have you seen it yet. (I actually think there are 2 out on DVD now.)
is it just me or does your title “steak sauce” have nothing to do with this entire post? if so, i dig it. 😉
i did not know there were golden oreos! i am so screwed because of course now i have to go get some.
Well, I bet you never had Zlate oplatky made by Opavia, so that’d be my recommendation 😉
The entire Justice League series is brilliant! Any comic book lovin’ geek will especially enjoy and appreciate the (based on) Alan Moore (For The Man Who Has Everything) and Warren Ellis episodes, not to mention the creators are the same as The Batman Animated, which RULE. Justice League Unlimited is also pretty good but has recently been canceled. Why they give the best cartoons the weirdest time slots I’ll never understand. Btw…Yessssss Nutter Butters are the way
two words, cookie wise: Jaffa Cakes.
I am in their thrall.
Why do I now think of Elizabeth Hurley every time I eat a Golden Oreo?
Justice League! Justice League! Talk about creamin’ the jeans!!!! (I’m such a NERD!)
Oh! And speaking of inappropriate expressions… guess who’s drinking Coke w/Lime? That’s right! Me, bitches!!!
Liz Hurley’s eyes in those photos…
It’s as if she saying:
“ARE THOSE GOLDEN OREOS?? DAVE, HOW COULD YOU??? I CAN’T EAT COOKIES!! THEY GO STRAIGHT TO MY HIPS!! GET BEHIND ME, SATAN!!”
Thank god Project Catwalk is over. I was starting to get a crush on her because she IS the most beautiful woman on the planet.
I like the wonder woman pic, the rounded calculating eyes. I even know what she is thinking; “How fast do I have to be to give this bozo the slapping he deserves? Drape your arm over me like I’m your favourite armchair will you. Taste my angry lasso!”
I think I’m also going to have to break down and buy the Justice League DVDs. My cookie suggetion: Keebler Soft Batch Chocolate Chip. Not very original, but damn they’re tasty. They also make oatmeal raisin, if you don’t like the chocolate chip.
Oreos are my favorite processed cookie, which is why the advent of Golden Oreos is both thrilling and distressing. Thrilling because there are NEW OREOS TO EAT. Distressing because…well, for the same reason. Damn/thank you, Dave!
Golden Oreos ROCK! I don’t know if you have Big Lots or Odd Lots stores in the great Northwest, but I found the ol’ Golden Oreos there for $1.99, which is amazing for Oreos.
I wish I could recommend another yummy cookie, but I think those were the last cookies I tried!
I love the Uh Oh Oreos, which are the golden cookie on the outside, and the most lucious chocolate cream inside. It’s not the same cream as the other chocolate cream Oreos, it’s totally different and, imo, to die for. I can’t buy a package because I’ll eat the whole thing. (Like now, where I’m eating oatmeal raisin cookie dough…why bake them?)
Oreos haven’t had lard in them in years. They’ve been Kosher for at least the last 10 years or so, and that was the death knell for Hydrox, which I always liked better than Oreos. But they’re long gone…
yep, i’m never, ever going to give up junk food for lent ever again.
I bought some new oreos. Thanks, Dave. Thanks alot. After the first one I said “The originals are much better” and when the bag was gone, I’d been completely converted.
