I don’t even mind babies crying so long as the parent is attempting to soothe the baby. Like some people who just have a loud laugh, babies cry. It’s fine. But if the parents are just letting them sit there and scream, THEN we’re going to have a problem.

I have way, WAY less if an issue with ambient restaurant noise, like plates and people talking, and far more of an issue with restaurants that blast music at a volume where it’s hard to hear someone sitting across from you.

From time to time, I used to get unexplained rashes on my arms. The last time I had one, I went to the doctor and he asked me what products I was using, and I told him I was using Eucerin lotion and sensitive skin body wash. He told me that a lot of lotions like Eucerin (and CereVe, I think?), tend to irritate a lot Read more

I also thought all bagels were only fine until I moved to NYC, and then I was like ok, I can’t get on board with NYC’s pizza superiority, since I love all kinds of pizza, but they’ve got something with their bagels that no one can beat (sorry, Montreal).

Because the texture of a toasted bagel is still 98% the texture of an untoasted bagel, with a little bit of crisp in between the cream cheese and the bagel that some people find texturally pleasing? A bagel doesn’t taste like regular bread, nor does a toasted bagel have anything remotely resembling the texture of Read more

Kevin Draper had the correct take when he pointed out forget the toasting, what kind of crazy person orders extra cream cheese with the ludicrous amount that most bagel places put on the bagel? I love cream cheese, but I ask for light cream cheese and still end up scraping some off, usually.

Oooh, pine nuts! I don’t like walnuts, so I was thinking about what other nut I could use, so thank you! :)

The thing is, World of Ice and Fire has already laid out the events. Fire and Blood goes into greater detail about some things like the reign of Jaehaerys I, but this isn’t like ASOIAF, where Benioff and Weiss had to go from Season 5 to Season 8 to an endpoint for which there was no connective tissue. The connective Read more

Seconded on Underwood. It’s my go-to for movies...I like all the varieties, but the Pinot Noir is my favorite. Read more

Unless there has been another article, I don’t believe we know that for sure? The date they mention (300 years before GoT) is the date of the Conquest. I’m sure the show will feature that Dance at some point (it would be stupid not to), but I don’t believe we know yet if it’s the entirety of the Targaryen dynasty or Read more

I hope they leave the Dance as morally ambiguous as it is in the book. They probably won’t, because TV seems to want to deal with more of a firm dichotomy of good and evil, but like, everyone in the Dance of the Dragons is awful. Some more so than others, but it’s fun to read because everyone is just so blatantly and Read more

“Better” is always going to be subjective. This sounds like a story that, with proper execution, I personally would have liked much better. I find the part about Rey learning her last name to be particularly touching.

And I’m 38, and people still regularly put me in my 20s. The point is more that if you look at me at 28, and at 38, I don’t look exactly the same. Even if I don’t look my age, my face has perceptibly aged from then to now.

No, I had no prior experience with the lore. But that was most of the fun of it, learning a new universe!

I think it was less confusing that the magical beings didn’t age, and much more confusing that Jaskier didn’t. (Please don’t quote the 40, 30, 20 thing at me you guys, I know. “Looking young” and “not aging at all in 10 years” are two different things.)

I didn’t think the timelines were confusing so much as they just impeded the story flow. Not “hard to follow” so much as “hard to get sucked into”. Read more

At our office we have birthday treats once a month, and the receptionist asks all that month’s birthday people for their requests. Without fail, every month someone asks for the banana pudding from Magnolia. If one can’t get to Miss Carter, Magnolia should be considered a viable alternative.
