Cinelli's Pizza Ristorante

I haven't blogged in, oh, a couple of years, but, I'm back!  Tonight I was looking for a new place to order from when I came across a Cinelli's review over on the pizza guy blog.  It caught my attention, so I popped in.  That pic above is zepolli.  I've ordered fried dough variations from many pizza places, but none have been as good as this.  They were buttery, sweet, crisp on the outside and soft in the middle.

This place is more like an Italian restaurant that delivers than a pizza place.  They have FIVE different homemade pasta sauces available.  I went with the meat sauce, and it did not disappoint.  It was incredibly flavorful with big chunks of tomato and meat.  Oh, and I threw in some homemade sausage.  It was damn tasty with a slightly sweet undertone.  I would definitely recommend this place, so if you're in Greece, pop in and grab some old world Italian.

Eastern State Penitentiary, Philadelphia

This is Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia.  As you can see, the place sure is creepy, in fact, that it was featured on Ghost Hunters.  

I totally thought this was a dentist chair.  Luckily it was a barber chair.  Still incredibly fucking eerie.  The goddamn walls fell apart, but the chair's still there??

This is the remains of the surgical center.  Really, the entire place looks like something out of a nightmare.  Also, you (okay, fine, I) occasionally get extremely nervous while walking the halls.

The reason this all looks so crazy is that the place deteriorated for over 20 years as it sat abandoned.  Fortunately, the historical society has taken on structural stabilization.  They aren't renovating, but instead keeping it in the state it is currently in and avoiding further deterioration.

This is "The Hole."  A tall man could not stand up in there, and there were no toilets or sinks.  People were sometimes sentenced there for 30 days.

This wing is not structurally sound, so no one is allowed in there, but it looks like the sort of place that a serial killer would bring his victims.  If you're ever in Philly, this tour is totally worth the money.  Oh, and the audio tour features Steve Buscemi, which is even more awesome.

Pierre Clucks Up (NSFW)

It's exam time, so this okapi is super busy.  For your enjoyment: a killer okapi production.  It's also available in HD.  I hope you all like it, it's less than 5 minutes long.

End of March Update

I haven't posted in nearly two weeks, because I have been pretty damn sick.  I went a really long time without being sick, and then, BAM!  So, anyway, now I'm back.  As I've been sick and boring, there isn't much to really blog about.

I did get to eat these fine pancakes.  That was awesome.  Also, I've been doing a lot of (not) exciting schoolwork.  

Billy has been driving everyone in this house crazy.  He chases the dogs' tails (even when they are in their crates).  He jumps into the bunny cage and plays with the bundiks' hay.  He randomly tackles the other cats.  He's really been making us pay for taking his balls.

I pulled back a blanket recently and caught Mr. Biff and his arch-nemesis, The Captain, cuddling while holding hands.  Mr. Biff is not pleased.  However, all the furless dogs are super happy that the weather is finally warming up.  Furlesses hate being cold.

Lastly, Eddie is still evil/cooler than everyone.
