My new favorite website - Where's George? - which I stumbled on after receiving a $10 bill (as change from my portabella and grilled chicken pizza at lunch) which was stamped with "See where I've been and track where I go next - enter my serial number at www.wheresgeorge.com." I was curious enough to check it out, but I mostly just wanted to make sure the $10 bill I was holding didn't come from some strippers g-string! (Just so you know I'm not crazy, there was even an article in the WSJ about George Tracking.) Another website to check out, especially if you drink a lot of Snapple - save your caps and spend them at the snapple yard sale. While you're out surfing, don't forget to stop by Iracane.com/wedding!!

The most interesting thing about this article I read in the Morris County section of the Star-Ledger this morning is not that the Madison, NJ Dunkin Donuts was mistakenly razed two months ago. The part that shocks me is that some woman drove her car into the store just two weeks before it was demolished...and just two months after I moved in to an apartment just half a mile up the street. Can you imagine that? Car crashes into donut store in my neighborhood and I completely miss it?

Today, I'm going to circumvent the standard iracane.com policy of not posting car-crashing-into-building stories where people get hurt. Reason? The picture that accompanies this article about a red Pontiac Grand Am plowing into a South Cackalacky pet store is just too goddamn cool. Here's hoping that the 75-year-old store owner makes a speedy recovery.

There's a Michigan woman who plans to break the record for most consecutive days spent camping out for a Krispy Kreme opening. Annie Lewis of Lansing has a 12-year-old autistic son who's a major fan of the doughnuts.
"He's the world's greatest expert on Krispy Kreme doughnuts," said Lewis, who started her quest Wednesday. "We've been traveling to Krispy Kremes all over the state."World's greatest expert? That's specious at best.

Missing: my J.Crew sunglasses. I'll offer a $10 reward to whomever can find them. Last seen at my beach house in Manasquan...or on my kitchen table in Madison...or in my car. I've had them for 2 years or so and they're the first pair I've ever owned that I didn't (a) get from a barmitzvah (b) pay $5 for at a drugstore or (c) steal from Darren. (Thanks to Steph for lending me a fabulous pair of amber-tinted numbers on Friday)

At the beginning of the 2003 baseball season, I doubt that the ownership of the Kansas City Royals and the area Krispy Kreme franchisee would have created a promotion that gave out a dozen doughnuts to any ticketholder anytime the Royals got 12 hits if they knew that the Royals would be so damn good this year. The average home attendance has increased by 2000.

Well, Noel and I hit three out of six possible Krispy Kreme stores between Madison, NJ and Toronto, ON this weekend. For those of you naysayers who think that the whole idea would make us sick of doughnuts, congratulations. I think it's going to be a while before I have another one...probably until Saturday morning at least.
During our drive Friday, we stopped in Clarks Summit (right outside Scranton, PA) We each had an original glazed; I enjoyed a sour cream while Noel scarfed down a raspberry-filled and something I cannot remember. Unfortunately, the original glazeds were not hot and fresh.
About four hours later, we hit the store in Henrietta (right outside Rochester, NY). The hot light was on so we got our free samples and then picked up a dozen original glazed and a dozen assorted for the hotel room. (note: when we checked into the hotel, I gave the desk clerk one of our original glazeds...he had never had one before!) I had the most disgusting donut ever at this point: key lime pie. Noel had a raspberry-filled one and got raspberry filling on his face. I debated not telling him.
Fast forward two days and, during our return trip, we stop at the Tonawanda store (right outside Buffalo, NY) At this point, we had just waited 90 minutes to cross the border and were in no mood to enjoy anything, even Krispy Kremes. However, I had a blueberry and a sour cream; Noel had a devils food cake and something else. (Note: this store featured the hottest Krispy Kreme girl ever...nothing hotter than a blonde ponytail underneath the Krispy Kreme hat)

I'm going to Toronto this weekend for Carl's bachelor party. Noel is driving up with me; he took the initiative and mapped out every Krispy Kreme along the way. (there are at least four) Will we visit them all?

Note: Cento tuna packed in olive oil is $2.49 at the Whole Foods Market, compared to the $2.19 price for Genova Tonno at the Super Stop N Shop. However, the Whole Foods Market clearly marks their doors with big red signs that say "NOT AN EXIT" instead of green signs that read "IN". Very helpful.

When I tried to leave the Super Stop and Shop tonight, the automatic door wouldn't open. I've always worried about the day when one of these doors wouldn't sense my presence and I immediately thought there was something wrong with me, like I had lost my soul or something and I ceased to exist as a living, breathing human being. I stood there a good ten seconds before I realized that I was in front of the "IN" door and not the "OUT" door. Brain no work good like once did.
Thanks to my roomie Noel for this odd car-crashing-into-building-meets-crazy-white-supremicists news item.

Somebody got sick in a public pool in Indianapolis and officials soon evacuated the pool. It's a good thing they did because some woman drove her car into the pool.
Well I finally made it to the Krispy Kreme store in Brick this morning. Needless to say, it was a truly magical experience. Free donuts to everyone in line, hot and fresh donuts rolling off at the rate of half a dozen per second, and some woman that spilled milk on me. I did not cry.
