I’m not sure about the rest of their recipes, but I really like this dahl recipe for making ahead. It keeps in the fridge for a few days without losing flavor, and it freezes well if you really want to make a big batch. Read more

Oh, and now I want to snuggle her twice. You'll make it through, Tammy Faye.

I am so sorry this is happening to you. My stalking situation had a cyber component to it. I know this is a lot to handle, but these are some things you’ll need to do: Read more

I tend to donate more in the primaries partially because thats often when I’m most passionate about a candidate but also because the competition is so much greater for funding since its the same party.

Just a few more days! And its really not that bad, I just genuinely felt like I was going crazy and wondering if I was becoming some uptight spinster in my old age and isolation lol.  I’m having a lovely time with my nephew!

No to everything, though the tomato thing is the least weird to me. I sometimes lop a chunk of cucumber off for a salad, then put the rest in the fridge unwrapped (though I wouldn’t do this with a tomato). Read more

Pal had to fill in for someone who works insanely early hours. He also had to jumpstart his car at 2 am & forgot to leave his car running when he stopped for coffee. I was happy to help but now I’m very sleepy. Read more

It’s so odd. There are adults now who have no or very little memory of that event! I can’t imagine; I feel like that event is fundamental to understanding (one of the reasons) why America is the way it is today. Next year will be the commemoration of 20 years. That blows my mind too.

I miss all of the built in rewards for good commenters. The whole starring system, COTD, and being mainpaged. It made a completely different level of commenter when you knew there was a chance you could be lauded or even published for the off handed comment you wrote. It made people think and research and double check Read more

They’re not that young anymore. Some would have been put on the Carousel in “Logan’s Run” a while ago. They just present as younger, whether out of conviction or to...I don’t know what they’re doing. Read more

I stopped going to Jez because it became impossible to comment, and sometimes difficult to even read or star other people’s comments. So I spend most of my time on deadsplinter.com There are no grays, no trolls, and everyone is a Kinja refugee so lots of familiar faces. There’s some really good writers too. Black Rod Read more

I rarely go there anymore, as every post just screamed “I’m a freelance writer with no insurance, paid piecemeal.” And there seemed to be such a lack of maturity. Now, granted, I’m probably about 25 years older than the average writer there now — but still. Petty, “edgy,” mean, humblebragging about sex and weed, it Read more

Taking care of a car is the worst. My battery died about 2 weeks ago so I had that replaced and the car looked at. They told me that I needed to replace all four tires. The tire place told me I also needed an alignment. The place I went to for the alignment said I need to replace my rear axle. I’m getting real fucking Read more
