On Liar, Liar, Food on Fire

@Slapfight I still can't get into kale, though my newest trick is eating it raw in a salad once it's soaked in a really lemony-mustardy-garlicky vinaigrette for at least 30 mins.

It's so good for you that I feel that I'm eating virtue. Pure, bitter, hard-to-chew virtue.

@melis To be fair, I never said the guy was worth keeping (heh), just that he loved you for you but point taken.

On Liar, Liar, Food on Fire

@Slapfight I'm like this with roasted broccoli dressed in a smoked paprika vinaigrette now. Just last night, I went to the kitchen to get pie and was shanghaied by the leftover broccoli. I'm not proud of it, but it's true.

I'm so sorry, @Jade, but that bunion story is hilarious! I'm going to snort over it all day.

Lamb Story clarification: He didn't like the idea of lamb, and I think he just couldn't tell the difference. It wasn't for ethical reasons -- this was in the 30s/40s, so not such a PETA thing, I think? The point is how powerful just the idea of something you hate can be.

@Scandyhoovian: I am so with you on banana hate.

@Sarah H. Seriously, no apologies necessary! I'm often suspicious of myself.

On Kids and Food

@Sarah H. Hm, what would you be suspicious about, that I people to be aware of it and buy it? Sure, but it's not like I make a lot of money from sales, I just want adult picky eaters to know they're not alone and that being a picky eater is not a character/personality flaw. It's as simple as that.

And, you're absolutely right, me being here is definitely not a coincidence. A friend told me that this post linked to my Motherlode piece (which OF COURSE was written to promote my book because that's the dirty dark secret they don't tell you: writing book is not enough. After you write it, you have to write even more to make sure people hear about it!), and I came over here to check it out.

But that aside, I appreciate you having your suspicions about me and still potentially being interested in the book. :P

@parallel-lines It does suck, and it is slow going but the fact that you're actually trying is pretty huge. I went through the same thing starting at 27 and twelve years later, I'm a food writer (and author of the above-linked Motherlode post) and I wrote the book SUFFERING SUCCOTASH in order to find out what changed for me and also to show how it feels to be an adult picky eater where you're judged so harshly for something that wasn't your choice in the first place.

No one would choose to live such a miserable existence!

On Scandals of Classic Hollywood: Cary Grant's Intimate Bromance

@Anne Helen Petersen Ah, a logical explanation. I knew you couldn't be so right about everything else in that piece and not be a Roz Russell fan! I did always hear that she was very shy and quiet off camera.

"Stretch up together, up! Over, up! Down, up!" My sister and I did those exercises.
