Foodie Fight!

This Thanksgiving week, I would like to give a personal shout out to the creator of Foodie Fight, a game which combines two of my favorite pastimes — somewhat useless trivia and eating. This Trivial Pursuit-style game tests your knowledge of everything from “culinary science and celebrity chefs to food history and exotic cuisine.” For example: “What kind of shank is used to prepare Italian <i>osso bucco</i>?” I know! I know! Veal? “Congrats, you are correct!” Consider me starved for more.

Casting The “Sweet Valley High” Movie

When I heard that Diablo Cody had signed on to write the big-screen version of my beloved Sweet Valley High series, I died a little inside. In a good way. You see, I’m such a hardcore SVH fan that I collect the series and read them on the regular. I am still not over the butchering that occurred when SVH became a TV show, starring a bunch of losers who had no business tainting Francine Pascal’s vision. However, Diablo Cody I trust. Mostly. I’m thrilled to learn that the film will be taking place in the ’80s, which means it will, hopefully, be inspired aesthetically by the original book covers, recognizable by their soft-focus-colored pencil drawings. However, I’m concerned that Diablo might need help casting the film. I’ll never forgive her if Lila Fowler is played by, shudder, Megan Fox, or Bruce Patman’s brawny bad boy is ruined by faux badass Shia LeBeouf. Diablo, I hope you are reading.
