I update my status on Facebook about every other day, and when I do, it always strikes me that what Iâ€™m really doing -- despite what Iâ€™m typing -- is F-ing around on Facebook.
It's fun to think of creative ways to say what I was doing, will soon be doing or wish I was doing. There's the honest, humdrum status update "Molly is making dinner for her family" to the overused, clever status update "Molly is." to the TMI update "Molly is pooping."Â
However, status updates are nothing more than another way to communicate something about us to our cyber friends. It has nothing to do with what we're actually doing, otherwise everyoneâ€™s update would simply be "typing" or "updating my Facebook status."
Indeed, I have some fine memories from this weekend. I won the OnMilwaukee.com costume contest. I made an altar honoring my grandparents for Day of the Dead. A gnome nuzzled my bosom at a Halloween party at The Mad Planet.
But the story that I will tell for years to come from this weekend revolves around my 6-year-old son. While trick-or-treating in our neighborhood on Friday night, he received a massive jawbreaker wrapped in plastic.
"Look, Mom!" he squealed with delight. "I got a choking hazard!"
Today, OnMilwaukee.com announced Balistreriâ€™s as the winner of the "Slice of Milwaukee" pizza contest. Four pizzerias created a "Milwaukee" pizza, and although many of the recipes were very creative, one Talkbacker was amazed that not one of the competitors included Secret Stadium Sauce or brown mustard.
This got me thinking about other ingredients that could be put on a Milwaukee pizza. What about a fish fry pizza? What about a Harley pizza with gasoline in the crust?
Seriously, in your opinion, what is a must-have ingredient for a Milwaukee pizza?
