I cannot WAIT for Shadow and Bone. It had better do my babies justice. Haha.

My roommate and I embraced Galentine’s Day a little earlier in the week, going for brunch and manis with friends, and then we watched all of the Galentine’s Day episodes of Parks and Rec along with P.S. I Still Love You. Then, when she left to visit family, I finally finished The Witcher. It was an excellent Read more

I’m 100% down for this. Now, I see all of the bro trolls in the comments lamenting the prospect of a female centered cast, or even the faux concern ones who are all “why not do something NEW instead of another Fast and Furious movie!” (Idk, bro, you’re going to see FF9, not me.) Read more

I’ve been wanting to try experimenting with dried beans lately.  Thank you for giving me the nudge to do so! (And to order expensive beans)

Note the “hinted at”. It aired in 1993, and people would have lost their damn minds if anyone thought that two cartoon characters were not only gay, but together at that time. It wasn’t even confirmed canonically until 2015. Read more

Yes, and you’d be shocked at how much pear juice is in stuff.  Hopefully, they’re looking into using the waste from those processes.

Back in 2006, a bunch of friends and I were heading to the prom. It was my senior year, so we decided to cruise a half an hour to the nicest local restaurant before heading back for the dance. There were seven of us, so we split up. Four of us in a sibling-owned Ford Taurus, including me, and three in a restored ‘69 Read more

My dad was always out in the shop doing something, and it was one of the only times we had a chance to bond without my mom around. From the time we were welding floorboards into a 70-something Franken-Ford firewood hauler to trying to hunt down electrical gremlins in an ‘82 Eldorado, we had the chance to bond. I’m Read more

I have such vivid sensory memory related to Dunkaroos from my childhood. My sister and I built a “clubhouse” that was little more than a few 2x4s nailed to a couple of trees, and I would go out in the woods, sit on our crappy construction, and eat my Dunkaroos while the barn cats swarmed me trying to get a taste. It Read more

I was living in Terre Haute when this pos came to the maximum security prison there, and I happened to drive by as the media vans were lined up by the side of the road. His fangirls were there too, all with handmade posters and t-shirts. I wanted to vomit. Read more

A classic Obuchowski gem.  Thanks for reposting and reintroducing us to Jim!

Totino’s Pizza Rolls for sure, pepperoni or combo, and/or Pagoda’s rangoons or steamed dumplings.  SUCH garbage. So satisfying.

These books were fucking SAVAGE, and thinking of all the terrible traumatic things that happen to these poor fresh faced cartoon children makes me nervous and also SO EXCITED.  I read every one of them as a kid and I can’t wait to read every one of the graphic novels too.

Somebody Please Feed Phil (My favorite food and travel show) did an episode in Lisbon, and Phil discovered and subsequently consumed dozens of them, and I’ve been wanting to try them ever since.  Maybe I’ll have to do a head to head comparison of these and Babish’s from this week. I can only imagine that more of these Read more

My favorite local place made that list!  They always have lines out the door, but I’ve never seen a drop in quality in product or service even when they got kind of famous here. If you’re ever in the Land of Lincoln checking out the sights, go to Long Nine Junction for the best $10 lunch you’ve ever had. (And add the Read more

Lightly salted roasted almonds are my go to. I don’t snack a whole lot between meals, but I tend to crunch a handful of almonds on the way out of the office when I know I don’t have dinner ready to go at home. It helps me stop from snacking on my roommate’s many processed junk foods before I eat dinner.

I think that both The Last Jedi and Rise of Skywalker being uneven and not universally loved might be the best thing that ever happened to this fandom. It’s made some people (certainly not all, ugh) realize that there’s a difference between liking Star Wars and basing their personalities around being a Star Wars fan. Read more
