I’m so looking forward to this trip! The langos sound amazing!
I thought about the House of Terror, but my travel-mates vetoed. When we went to D.C. we visited the Spy Museum, which was super interesting, but not quite as dark as the House of Terror sounds.
We’re only there for 4 days, so I’m not sure if we’ll have time to travel outside the city. If we have time I’ll definitely try to do it, though!
Oh, I’ll definitely have to go to Cafe Gerbeaud! I love a sample platter, and if it’s cake, it’s even better!
My pleasure! They sometimes send the dog up to our place when they’re super stressed (they have a newborn). He loves coming up to spend time with the boys!
When we moved in to our place we met the neighbors kind of organically. We share a common rear stair, which is connected to our decks (I live in Chicago - this is really common). Just saying “hi” every time we saw them on their deck helped. And, they have a ridiculously adorable dog, so that made us stop and chat.…
Do you REALLY think drag is about gay men mocking women? That’s literally the opposite of drag. Instead of repeating this nonsense, why not take a breath, and read some of the posts discussing what drag means, and why it’s a powerful and subversive art form? Listen to what people are saying, maybe?
It really shows how petty people can be...
Couldn’t agree more! I find using the ground spices isn’t that much more complicated, but the flavor is so, so much better. I like cumin, coriander, and fresh serrano. And lots and lots of fresh lime and garlic.
Seconding this. I once worked at an office where they changed the locks on the front doors any time anyone gave notice. It was bizarre.
My company does this too. We have a communal kitchen, and it gets stocked with yogurt, fruit, oatmeal, snacks, bagels, etc, every Monday. It’s really nice to have that!
I love the people I work with, which is a huge bonus. My hours can be crazy, and nights and weekends are sometimes expected - and the pay isn’t fantastic. But the person I work for directly is one of the best bosses I’ve ever had the pleasure to work for.
I just found out the “Oryx and Crake”, “Year of the Flood,” “Maddaddam” trilogy is being developed for a TV series by Darren Aronofsky. I’m beyond excited. These are some of my absolute favorite novels.
The first time my partner’s mother met my family was cringe-worthy. My partner and I had been out very late the night before leaving for my mother’s house - a five hour drive. My partner sat in the backseat, while I drove, with his mother sitting next me. I was super hung-over, and white-knuckled it the whole way. By…
This is a terrible, terrible show. I love apocalyptic shows/movies, so I was really looking forward to this, but good lord it was tough to watch. I quit after about four episodes. Just horrible...
I would suspect that they’ll handle the stereotype issue a bit more delicately than the original. If this is a “Red State” make-over show it might actually do some good. I remember the show with Scarlett and Santino from Project Runway where they went to very rural areas and helped straight women with fashion, and my…
There was a show on AMC years ago, called “America’s Castles.” I loved it. Mar-A-Lago was featured. The foyer of Mar-A-Lago is large enough to fit an entire ranch-style house in it. A whole house. That’s just the foyer.
No, it’s not as satisfying. But - BUT! You won’t have the guilt and shame you would have if you had eaten the pizza. Also, as the saying goes, “Nothing tastes as good as thin feels.”
Lady! Buy it!!!! Holy jebeezus!
