BECOME A PASTA-FARIAN DAY
Lee Marvin 1924
“The only thing in life that’s really interesting is the contest. We are all contestants–whether we admit it or not. If I read 20 pages of a book and they’re no good, I put it down. Maybe it’s good after 100 pages, but I can’t wait. The author lost.”
*Treat life like the contest that it is. You determine if you are winning or losing.
*Look at a picture of Seal as you listen to his music. Think how easy it would have been for him to not want his lupus scarred face to be seen. Be seen today. Be proud of who you are.
Victoria Justice 1993
“Starting a new religion… Thinking about becoming a “Pasta-farian”…”
*Victoria Justice sent the above tweet, and she may be on to something. Make Scott Conant’s bucatini recipe and Hailie Duff’s stuffed shells and see if these are good for your SOUL.
Jeff Daniels 1955 – watch Dumb and Dumber

BONUS: Haylie Duff 1985 – stuffed shells with three cheese stuffing

Which of these two dishes was better for your soul?
DOUBLE BONUS: Smokey Robinson 1940
A boozy whiskey cocktail that’s equal parts mezcal smoke and festive sweetness, thanks to a warm, spice-infused maple syrup.
