Re: Thanksgiving: the most delicious time of the year

I am: 1) Team "Turkey is delicious" 2) Team "Why the fuck are you putting marshmellows in sweet potatoes?" There is some mild drama going on with my mother and her anxiety affecting her judgment about where Thanksgiving should be held/what should be done for Thanksgiving. Therefore, I have not comme...

Re: How's the weather? v. 1.1

I got on a bus leaving Port Authority at 3:45 yesterday afternoon. 7 hours later I got off the bus. It was one of the worst experiences ever. Our bus driver was completely heroic in his driving. We got stuck like 4 or 5 times. There were so many accidents and cars stuck or spun out along the Turnpik...

Re: Vote or Die

Normally I would vote Libertarian in usually decided Senate race, especially since Murray Sabin is running and he was for legalizing weed way before it was cool, has been hopelessly running for office for many years, and 19,000 years old. But I really don't want Bob Menendez to lose his seat to Bob ...

Re: Ladyfashun

I got a blowout today for the first time ever and it’s pretty amazing. My hair is totally straight and flat and sleek like I could never do myself. It was for a work thing and I totally feel like I dressed up like one of the sales/accounts girls for the day. I'm intrigued. So it's better than flat ...

Re: Ladyfashun

Apropos of nothing, the other day when I used a mirror to look at the back of my head (to ensure that my ponytail-barrette wasn't crooked), I realized the end of said ponytail was looking really shaggy: instead of being a more-or-less straight line, it made me think of stalactites hanging from a ca...

Re: Elizabeth Warren's

There’s a lot of giving unwarranted grace to political actors. It’s not kinda almost a good idea if we can figure it out it’s a bad idea in its bones. Business existence at the whim of regulators is bad bad bad. Write a law call it a crime to violate it prosecute individuals. Improve sanction regim...

Re: Water, Water Everywhere

I hate water. I've become better about drinking it at work since they got a literal water cooler, and cold water is easier to force myself to drink, but I mostly hate it.

I do, however, have an addiction to plain seltzer. I drink it by the case.

It's really not *that* cold out- woke up to 12 degrees, warmed up to 17 by 1pm (start of the Polar Bear Swim) If you put on a coat and hat, you're fine. The news just wants to be dramatic about something. Quit your bitching.

Re: Thanksgiving: the most delicious time of the year

I'll eat sweet potatoes once a year, because my friend makes them in a non-abomination manner. I don't know what the recipe is but there are certainly no marshmellows.

I am making a butterscotch-chocolate-cream pie and stuffed mushrooms.
