I have several pregnant/new mommy friends. I am not handling it well.
Amandamarieg is a lawyer who does not work as a lawyer. She once wrote up a plan to take over the world and turned it in as a paper for a college course. She only received an A-, because she forgot that she would need tech geeks to pull off her scheme.
Two weeks later, my hair is still a topic of conversation.
Why Stolen Photos Matter
It’s not because of the money.
Dear Fellow White People
When are we going to get it? It’s definitely not about us.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes: A Gripe
This weekend I saw Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. I liked it. It was a good popcorn movie. It kept me entertained. It made me think about humanity. It made me think about hubris. It made me think about weaponry. But it chafed a little. Because what was the point of Malcolm, exactly?
Tried and True Smoothie Recipes
I have been trying really hard to eat “better.” Better, for me, means eating more often and trying to eat nutritionally dense foods. (Your “better” may look totally different from mine.) Typically, this translates to making sure I snack every few hours, making sure all of my meal plates have at least three different colors on […]
Join the Binge Watch!
“You young kids, you can’t wait for a new season. You have to watch every episode at once. You have no patience!” This was my mother, scolding me for watching the entire first season of Orange is the New Black in under a week. When I pointed out that if streaming services had been around when […]
Lunchtime Poll: Pets Are Weird
Recently on our 5 a.m. walk, Daisy saw a new object of terror.
Book Review: Bumped by Megan McCafferty
Have I mentioned I love dystopias? Of course I have. They are my biggest guilty pleasure reads. The only problem is they’re all really dark and depressing and the world is a terrible place. They are not typically uplifting, and everyone you ever loved will die. Then I read Bumped.
To start this off, you should probably know that I love romance novels.
Things I Will Never Do
As a rule, I don’t DIY. In fact, when a friend got married I told her I would do anything to help her, but I couldn’t be expected to DIY anything. Because I am pretty bad at it.
I love to make elaborate, flavorful meals that warm the belly and the soul, but usually I wait way too long to do that and just want to eat something immediately. My go-to in these situations is typically grilled cheese or a poached egg on toast with chopped avocado. The other day, I put two […]
Cocktail of the Day: Old Fashioned
I know you’ve heard about the alcohol rules around here. Martinis are made with gin and we drink our whiskey straight. But if you must have a whiskey mixed drink, the old-fashioned is the way to go.
Lyrics That Get Me Every Time
I am, to coin a phrase, all about the wordplay. While I love beautiful music, music with a beat, and music with a purpose, what I love most of all is music that makes me repeat its lyrics over and over. I love music with visual words, that tear at my heart a little bit […]
Project Of The Day: Flower Dog Collars
Believe me, you’re going to be all over this insane level of cuteness. Instructions and pictures after the cut.
