Lush Life

*waves* Such a lovely bunch of people here. I've been lurking for a while and will likely continue to do so. I like German microphones, Irish Whiskey and short walks on the beach.

On The Best Time I Accidentally Attended a Teenage Orgy

On A Brief Addendum to Our Craigslist Wedding Story

I am quite literally crying with laughter - at my desk! - over the R-O-S-E-B-U-D incident. Oh my word is that funny.

And while I never want to be in the ICU under any circumstances, if for some awful reason I am, I am going to remember that.

On Eleven Days Alone In: Paris

@YFN Dentonista@twitter Fun Fact: Rick Steves was the co-sponsor of Washington State's recent Initiative 502, to legalize, tax and regulate marijuana. Not as narrow as I had previously assumed!

On Drynuary: What and Why

@thisisunclear As a former resident of that fine city I can assure everyone that there is no "Drynuary" in New Orleans. What there is, is CARNIVAL, January 6 until February 12th. Then y'all can dry out.

On Shared Spaces, Lie-Measurement, and the Manageable Hassle

@bocadelperro Yes! It can be only once a month! It takes financial dexterity sometimes, but keeping tidy is easier and life is far less stressful when I know that at the end of the month someone is going to come DO THE BATHROOM.

I also look at hiring a cleaner as helping the local economy and a small business, but that may in part be to assuage any lingering sense of guilt over the perception of luxury.

You had me at "[a] thick, red man falls out of a door." This is lovely and I hope you are feeling better.

On Light-ish, Hippie-ish, Side Dish Ish/Help

All the Brussels Sprouts love here is fantastic!

In an effort to eat healthy but not bland food, I've been experimenting with vinegar and veggies.

Can't remember the specific recipe but these two have similar ideas for a zesty side dish:

Sugar Snap peas With Lemon Mint Vinaigrette

Bacon & Balsamic Glazed Snap peas

Warm balsamic over asparagus topped with a dusting of slightly melted Parmigiano-Reggiano is also yummy.
