My dad makes fab turkey, and his trick is spatchcocking (???!!!) it. Cut out the backbone of the bird so the whole thing butterflies in a big dish and bake it like that. Everything cooks evenly, so the white meat stays moist. No Norman Rockwell Thanksgiving pics, but we prefer tasty turkey.
@iceberg Me too. Four months in and I just was sick of fighting him off. This has led to some very complicated "was it rape?" feels-- I said ok, but he shouldn't have been asking in the first place. He knew where I stood on the p-in-v issue. Sorry to threadjack, I've just never encountered anyone else with this same experience.
For the record, I'm pretty screwed up about sex but I think it relates more to self-esteem issues, many perpetuated by guy referenced above.
I hate that something that happened almost 6 years ago still affects me so strongly.
@Science vs. Dinosaurs I sent in my absentee ballot in as soon as I got it (September) and it was highly anti-climactic. Didn't stop me from wearing my Louisianans for Obama shirt today and acting all proud for voting.
@Ophelia I still love my die-hard-tea-party parents. It's reallllllly tough sometimes, and we do not watch the news together or speak of politics.
@Lily Rowan Me too. My first pumpkin got moldy. Sunday afternoon good?
@mangosara I don't really have that problem so I can't vouch for it, but I'm pretty sure they have a "deep pore" brush head so the clairisonic would probably help.
@mangosara I've had fantastic luck with Dior nail polish in terms of not streaking. The nail polishes are super pigmented, I guess? They go on so smooth and have a wider brush which actually leads to less mess for me. And my manicures last a lot longer than with Essie or OPI polishes. Totally worth the $24. Can you tell I spend all my money at Sephora??
@mangosara I bought mine on an irresponsible spending whim and I LOVE IT. My face gets sooooo clean and smooth and I think my lotion sinks in better. I did find the brush head it came with a little rough, so I got the one for more sensitive skin. But yeah, if you can swing it money-wise, definitely get one.
@TheclaAndTheSeals I once got an underwire sports bra from Gap Body. My tits have never been so secure. Not sure if they still sell that particular one, though.
@Megano! Have you had good luck with Julep polish? I bought one and it was suuuuper thick. But I love their colors!
