Lots o’ quirky stuff being bandied about the Interwebs this week, including some fabulously oblivious bookend observations.

I extend my undying admiration to:

* Data miner Bonnie Azab Powell (via @grist) for bringing to my attention just how much Arlingtonians blow on edible entertainment (nearly $12k per household–$850 behind spendthrift Austinites (#1) but $1,400 more than their D.C. neighbors (#6));

* Javaclast Lynne Rosenthal (via @delrayser) for refusing to kowtow to coffee couture;

* Truckies Erin Willi (@erinferrell) and Amanda McClements (@metrocurean) for illustrating our mobile dining dreams and nightmares;

* Booze hounds Ray Daniels (@Cicerone_org) and Frank Rich (@Modern_Drunkard) for portraying the alpha and omega of tying one on;

* Hot Chocolate City dining sleuths @dcwrappeddates and @BYTEatDrink for voicing the yin and yang of Restaurant Week;

* Pith spewer @Hormonella for dealing sardonically with disappointing foodstuffs; and,

* Virginia native Patton Oswalt (@pattonoswalt) for rekindling the ultra-low tech communications revolution.

I feels ya.

As you can imagine, the latter part of this week has been dominated by feverish #snowpocalypse/#snOMG/#Snogasm coverage:

* @delrayser and Postie Chris Cillizza (@TheFix) for taking stocking up with a grain of salt;

* Food scribe Addie Broyles (@broylesa) for turning winter warnings into a call for culinary action;

* The Globe and Mail (via @FoodNewsJournal) for reminding us that culinary genius is often a group effort;

* Robyn Eckhardt (@EatingAsia) for using her noodle and focusing on the hands that feed us;

* Cheflebrity stalker @rdpeyton for keeping his head on a swivel;

* Asylum (@Asylumdotcom) for showcasing a heart-pumping grocery run; and,

* Tongue-in-cheek troubadour John Mayer (@johncmayer) for unabashedly embracing his cereal killer-dom.

The Interweb is like a snark buffet.
