TGI...T?

I woke up this morning thinking it was Friday. I know, FML, right? Apparently so did J.Scrib, as she strolled into work this morning in jeans. Does anyone else have that feeling today? Maybe it's because it's the first sunny day in Boston this week, which makes me want to just skip to the weekend.

In any case, I thought I'd embrace this I-can't-get-motivated, are-you-sure-it's-not-Friday?, feeling by doing "TGIF" a day early this week. So here's some reading to distract you this particular Thursday.

F*** YEAH CILANTRO. There's a famous website that is devoted to people who hate cilantro. I will not dignify this website by linking to it ;) As a cilantro-aholic myself, I found this reactionary blog hilarious, all about the amazing herb that is cilantro. Here's the author's reaction to a bacon-wrapped hot dog with cilantro: IF THIS CAN HAPPEN THEN THERE IS ALSO HOPE FOR ISRAEL AND PALESTINE. Warning: some parts are randomly pretty crude; who knew cilantro could elicit this sort of response!?
Sonic is coming to Peabody. You've seen the commercials. All.The.Time. And yet there isn't one within hundreds of miles. My first thought: what terrible marketing! My second thought: I need to try this!! (Sonic is playing some great HTG with Dish Gal)... But now there's one coming to Peabody, complete with a drive-in and everything. If only we could get an In-n-Out burger here now... {via MenuPages}

Tweeting Recipes The New York Times writes about a woman from Northern Ireland on Twitter who "Tweets" entire recipes! For you non-Twitter-ers, that means a recipe in less than 140 characters.

Early reports on new restaurant Tory Row in Cambridge. The chowhound gang reports on early experiences at brand new restaurant Tory Row, which comes from the Miracle of Science/Audobon Circle/Middlesex Lounge peeps. Though no one is raving, I still really want to try this place.

What's your weirdest snack combo? A conversation about bizarre snacks people love. I am intrigued by the peanut butter and dill pickles sandwich; sounds disgusting, but I do love pickles... What's your favorite weird snack? {via Serious Eats}

If there's a better herb than cilantro, I don't want to know about it. The other day I had a carnitas super at Anna's for the first time since getting my wisdom teeth out a month ago, and it was like kissing an angel.

I've gone on record in the past that the cast of characters from the Sonic commercials should get a TV show (the Geico cavemen got one!) Although I contend that the Commonwealth needs a White Castle much more than it needs an In-and-Out burger.

My roommate loves PBJ and pickles. He swears by them. They are his comfort food, they are his go-to post-drinking food. But he has yet to convince me or his gf. Mind you I love pickles and I love PBJ...they just don't belong together. There maybe hope from Israelis and Palestinians, but not for this...

I'm loving these suggestions. Julia, I do the same with the cheddar.

One of my fam's favorite snacks is hot pepper jelly, cream cheese, and crackers-- but is that weird?

Also, I remember my dear aunt used to eat carrots with ketchup. That's definitely kinda bizarre...
