On Get This Look: Angela Lansbury

People sometimes do call Jessica out for being involved in too many murders! The episode where she's a witness in a Canadian murder trial and the lawyer or barrister or whatever implies that she comes from a family of homicidal maniacs because five of her nieces and nephews had been arrested for murder that year comes to mind.

On Lemon Cookies With Bubblegum Vodka Glaze

My 62-year old trucker father is a big bubblegum vodka fan. Also, he's a big fan of latter-day Cher. Which is similar.

On The Best Time I Called in to a Radio Advice Show

Oh man, I had the huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuugest crush on Dr. Drew in the nineties. And even though I'm not a teenager anymore I still develop crushes pretty constantly on guys 20 years older than me, give or take.

On Foods From Fiction: Turkish Delight & Raspberry Cordial

I tried making Turkish delight once, as a teenager, and got basically the same results, but I thought it was because the recipe I had required a candy thermometer and all my mom had was a meat thermometer and meat totally skeeved me out and so I tried to guess when the right temperature was. But I guess it might be kind of dumb to make yourself no matter what.

On The Ladies of the 17th Century Were Way More Hardcore Than You

Oh, Lord, New Plimoth. Soooooo many field trips. Or, okay, like three. At least one of which involved my friend crying--crying!--because he couldn't convince me that the re-enactors kept TVs hidden in their houses.
