On Every Meal Almanzo Eats in Laura Ingalls Wilder's Farmer Boy

This is the 1,008,645th time I have pondered on how much the Hairpin is in my head. Also, does anyone (other than me) have The Little House Cookbook? I'm shocked that they haven't re-released it with the new interest in eating local.

On Weight Gain, Orgasms, and "Everyone Hates My Boyfriend"

@cherrispryte I am married to a fat guy who eats cheeseburgers but he's been the same size since we started dating 4 years ago. I think he's super sexy and he has plenty of healthy habits so I'm not too worried about his nutrition. But gaining 50+ pounds over a few years is probably a sign of something else going on--either a BIG change in habits or some other type of health issue. She might be wrong to attribute it to the cheeseburgers if BF has always eaten like that, but I think she's right to be concerned.

I guess if the guy is super tall and big, 50 pounds over say four years could be more happy-relationship slide than serious issue, but I'm currently trying to dig myself out of a happy-relationship slide, so.

On A Guide to Eating Very Particular Feelings

Re #2: is it weird that being in a happy partnership, I kind of miss having new exes-of-current-things or currents-of-ex-things to hate stalk? ON BALANCE, this life is better than the old one, but I actually kind of miss that particular feeling. Weird, right?

On This Wedding Season, Say Yes to Strangers: What I Learned From My Craigslist Date

As a nice person who just got married, can I just say that this is ONLY OK if the marrying folks are being this unreasonable? Please don't bring randos to the weddings of nice people for lulz.

On 13 Camp Songs Where Someone Dies

@SarcasticFringehead Wow! As far as I know, "rig of bamboo" wasn't part of the lyrics at my camps, we just said "A rickadandoo." Why not, it's not like most of those songs make any sense.
