Ginger and Me 

I love fresh ginger tea! It's good for your stomach, circulation, and almost anything that ails ya... at least according to the Chinese. I trust them, they've been at it for a long time.

Just peel and slice up a ginger root and boil it for a little while. I boil it for a long time, I like it strong. Add a little lemon and honey. MMMMM. It's got a real kick to it.

While it cannot compete with fresh ginger, I also use the pre-sweetened instant ginger tea packets available in your local Chinatown. Use it instead of sugar in regular tea and you'll feel extra healthy!

Okay, my Martha moment has passed.

I'm so excited! I'm going to see Carol Channing tomorrow! She's doing a week long appearance at a small theater Downtown. My friends and I are shocked by how little Internet play Carol gets. No fan sites?? What gives? I know, I know, I should do one myself. Well, my friend John did do a Carol essay in Blair, an online magazine:

Wow Carol tomorrow and Leigh Bowery (Taboo) Next week. That's 2 iconic freaks in 8 days!
