On The Best-Dressed Salads

@Lu2 I would probably eat kale every day, too, but my husband HATES the smell of it, and he does most of the cooking, so I really only get to eat it when I'm on my own for dinner. It is pretty funny, though, when he comes in the door and goes "Ugh, god. What died in here?!...Oh, you made kale didn't you?"

On The Best-Dressed Salads

Oh man, I adore arugula, but I've bought a few batches before that were too peppery/bitter, and it really ruins the dish because that's all you can taste.

Also, I have just recently discovered how much I love the flavor of chard (especially red chard), and now I just want to replace all other greens with it.

And since this post mentioned about 5 of my favorite foods (artichoke, brussels sprouts, kale, etc.), now I am unfortunately very hungry.

On Who's the Squarest-Jawed of Them All?

@special_boots That guy is my age?? Holy hell. I don't know any 25-year-olds that look like that.

On the topic of recently discovered sexy men (not necessarily to play Batman or anything), I just finished watching The Fall on Netflix, and Jamie Dornan is my new "WowIhaveneverseenahotterhumaninmylife" person. I mean, he plays a creepy, manipulative serial killer, and I would still stare into those eyes longingly.

On Who's the Squarest-Jawed of Them All?

@Judith Slutler Ugh the Batvoice. I HAAAAAATE how so many male actors nowadays are inclined to use that fucking deep, throaty, mumbly voice. And it's afflicting almost every genre out there. Even sitcoms can't escape the stupid voice.

On Which Song Is Better? Nope, You're Wrong

@j-i-a Hahah, I could be wrong but I would venture to guess those corridors are pretty often filled with the subtle (cough) scent of weed.

On Which Song Is Better? Nope, You're Wrong

If we're going to talk about TI's swagger, can we talk about how I fell a little bit in love with him when I saw him perform on SNL a few years ago because of his outfit? He wore a sweater with an image of a mouse wearing, I think, a nutcracker-style military jacket, and he topped off the sweater with a gray knit scarf and matching beanie. It was an outfit that could be worn by a small child, and yet TI pulled it off like whoa.

On Which Song Is Better? Nope, You're Wrong

@bureaucrab Oh god. The Grantland "Best Character from The Wire" bracket actually did infuriate me. I mean, not the end result, because of course Omar should have won, but some of the results of the individual face-offs left my mouth hanging open.

On Which Song Is Better? Nope, You're Wrong

@bureaucrab I totally agree that there are better songs on that album. I spent much of my junior year of high school playing it on repeat, and I always skipped Mr. Brightside since it got way too much airplay.

On Which Song Is Better? Nope, You're Wrong

@Casanova Frankenstein I agree wholeheartedly. I'll sing praises for Hey Ya all day err'yday, in between singing the actual song itself.

Also, not a week goes by where I don't utter "lend me some sugar, I AM your neighbor!" at least once.
