Here is the latest entry in my obsession with divine apparitions in unlikely places - hospital windows, dropped ceiling tiles, tortillas, and junk food.

This week's IN TOUCH magazine includes a photo of yet another divine junk food apparition. This second instance of a Cheesus perhaps demonstrates that the Lord, in His infinite Wisdom, has decided to appear to US citizens where they are most likely to find Him, in their trashy dietary staples. The next place He should appear, if he is as wise as we believe him to be, is either during one of those fleece blankets with sleeves infomercials, as a Facebook virus, or a new iPhone application. (although no app can top the one that looks like a lighter flame, perfect for waving during rock concerts, safety first!)

Praise the Lord of Junk Food!

Real Housewives of New Jersey Italianate MacMansions

Check out this article and the related videos of Caroline and Danielle's MacMansions in Jersey. They feature neo "European" Italianate-American-Baroque decoration mixed with 1990s styling. These massive homes -10,000 sq. foot range - include Baccarat chandeliers with cranes to lower them from the ceilings as high as Mt. Everest, massive Lladro figurines, wall-to-wall patterned carpets, "tropical" print wall-paper, 5,000K 10 ft. long carved wood sofas upholstered in paisley, incontinent Chihuahuas named Fendi, walk-in closets the size of 900K studio apartments in the West Village filled with beadazzled jeans, low-cut blouses, and lots of bling.
