Karl Lagerfield’s Personal Library: Not as cozy as I would pick for my own, but I would pay money to look through those titles… that’s a LOAD of books, folks! Aren’t you the least bit curious what is on those shelves?

The week’s most popular post over at Food Riot was…. 

It’s like the world is at an imbalance because the Pope recognized gay people as people (GASP!) last week and some other Italian dude needed to get his condamnation in before it was too late. I mean, it just wouldn’t be Italy without the parmesan cheese and anti-gay sentiment. I don’t know about y’all, but my local Italian joint always asks me if I want any shredded cheese or anti-gay sentiment on my pasta when they serve me.
