Martha Stewart: Ready for Spring planting ...

Martha Stewart found guilty.Today is Martha Stewart's official day to scurry away from Camp Cupcake to take up the hoe and prepare the grounds of her estate for Spring planning. Her company's stock, apparently, has tripled since her conviction .. this follows the old adage: bad news is good for the stock market (did I just make this adage up?!?). Though she's still under house arrest for another five months, it's clear that Martha's appeal is gonna be akin to the resurrection of Lady Lazarus.

Martha Stewart on her way to court.Found a convicted felon after a very public stoning that was her trial, she was dispatched to Camp Cupcake to do the time for her crime. Yeah, there's gonna be a reality show based on her time. Yeah, there's a book in the work based on her time. She's certainly getting more airtime than when her cooking show was syndicated. Free publicity .. it's a beautiful thing. No doubt, Martha's walks down the dark hall of shame did not tarnish her. On the contrary, she's emerging from all this turmoil with more appeal. People will see her now as an American icon that has transverse hell and has something to say .. a new cult has been established.

I understand that Martha Stewart now owns 35% of her soul, down from 60% in October 1999.

I wonder if there are going to be rumors about Martha in jail, like was she mean to everyone and a snob and kept to herself.

A joke that someone forward to me a while back ...

Martha Stewart vs Real Women

MARTHA STEWART: If you accidentally over-salt a dish while it's still cooking, drop in a peeled potato and it will absorb the excess salt for an instant "fix-me-up."
REAL WOMEN: If you over-salt a dish while you are cooking, that's too bad. Please recite with me, The Real Women's motto: "I made it and you will eat it and I don't care how bad it tastes."

MARTHA STEWART: Cure for headaches: Take a lime, cut it in half and rub it on your forehead. The throbbing will go away.
REAL WOMEN: Take a lime, mix it with tequila, etc., chill and drink. You might still have the headache, but who cares?

MARTHA STEWART: Stuff a miniature marshmallow in the bottom of a sugar cone to prevent ice cream drips.
REAL WOMEN: Just suck the ice cream out of the bottom of the cone, for Pete's sake. You are probably lying on the couch, with your feet up, eating it anyway.

MARTHA STEWART: To keep potatoes from budding, place an apple in the bag with the potatoes.
REAL WOMEN: Buy Hungry Jack mashed potato mix and keep it in the pantry for up to a year.

MARTHA STEWART: When a cake recipe calls for flouring the baking pan, use a bit of the dry cake mix instead and there won't be any white mess on the outside of the cake.
REAL WOMEN: Go to the bakery. They'll even decorate it for you.

MARTHA STEWART: Brush some beaten egg white over pie crust before baking to yield a beautiful glossy finish.
REAL WOMEN: The Mrs. Smith frozen pie directions do not include brushing egg whites over the crust, so I just don't do it.

MARTHA STEWART: If you have a problem opening jars, try using latex dishwashing gloves. They give a non slip grip that makes opening jars easy.
REAL WOMEN: Go ask the very cute neighbor to do it.

And finally the most important tip ...
MARTHA STEWART: Don't throw out all that leftover wine. Freeze into ice cubes for future use in casseroles and sauces.
REAL WOMEN: Leftover wine??

speak up!
