On The OkCupid Honesty Project: An Exercise in Truth-Telling

Perhaps this is a bit mean, but I bet the author isn't a very good copywriter. Communication doesn't seem to be her strong suit, nor insight into others, nor even concept.

It strikes me that the attempt at honesty here is more dishonest than most dating site profiles. With the exception of height, probably. And frankly, the depressed over-sharer has a not insignificant presence on OkCupid already. It was interesting to read the responses, though. They were not what I expected.

On A to Z: Cocktails That Live Up to their Names

I also wish Turkish Delight was anything but Turkish Delight. I was an angry child when I got to the last book and realized I'd been duped into reading a Christian allegory, and I was angrier years later when I first saw Turkish Delight.

@The Attic Wife I feel this way. Mostly I am concerned about the setting being moved to the American South.
