LOLing at giving the light switch the finger. I have done that.

On Bloodfeast: Scary White People Tacos

Hah - I've always called these "Mom-style tacos". My mom whips up that Ortega taco dinner kit, with MILD salsa. It's the most exotic recipe in her repertoire, other than "chicken cacciatore", which for her consists of boneless chicken breasts over spaghetti with a jar of Prego dumped on top.

On Two Ways to Order a Shake

I love that you guys plan on doing some longitudinal tracking.... my coworkers and I were tracking our microwave's performance on popcorn, stratified by brand. We had the just about the perfect popping times down for fewest unpopped kernels/least burning, and they replaced the microwave!

On Tax Terms, Explained

I really want to be the type of person who can pull off a kaftan. I feel like I won't be able to until I'm an older-ish lady and own more bangles.

On A Bold Notion for Baby Showers

@yeahsurefine I feel the same. I mean, I absolutely agree than men should be expected to participate in all the second-shift work that goes into making a life: housework, cooking, parenting, etc. (and it really bums me out that so many women I know have "partners" who aren't very partner-y on that stuff) But personally I'd much rather just have a ladies brunch type thing for my shower - the co-ed ones I've been to have been SUPER awkward. At a picnic one, all the men stayed outside and drank while the women went inside for present opening. It was like the 8th grade dance all over :P

On FOUND: The Best Sheets

@likethestore I see! I'm a fan of whatever they use at nice hotels, so I guess I like crisp. With my menagerie, I could never pull off that whole dreamy all-white bedding thing though.

On FOUND: The Best Sheets

@likethestore Wait, what's bad about percale? I need to know more about sheets, legitimately. (Although I'm still probably just going to buy what's on sale at Kohl's, someday I'll spurge on really good sheets...)
