Quantcast

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

Roasted vegetables--easy, delicious, and recognizable by the older crowd. Cut whatever you want into chunks, toss with a little olive oil and S&P and roast at 425-450 for 20-30 minutes. Brussels sprouts with diced bacon or cauliflower tossed with cumin seed are great.

The NYT also had some kale salad recipes recently that look great.

On Really Good Books About Real People: Part Three

@thebestjasmine This is the interaction I had with the librarian when I went to look for it:
me: Do you have Foreskin's Lament by Shalom Auslander?
male librarian (looking horrified): Excuse me...?
me: Foreskin's Lament. By Shalom Auslander.
male librarian (checks computer, looking more horrified): Uh, it's in autobiography...
me: Thanks, that's just over there, right?
male librarian, faintly: Yes...

On "Each has the other’s name tattooed on his inner lip"

@Lucienne There was an article on Slate about how "probably identical" are usually identical. Apparently fraternal twins never question whether or not they're identical (according to the company that offers genetic testing.)

On "Each has the other’s name tattooed on his inner lip"

My twin sister and I don't really get jealous at this point since we're doing very different stuff. I am (mostly) over the fact that she scored 30 points higher on the SAT than I did.

On Witch's Brew

You can usually get dry ice at a grocery store. If, however, there is only a small chunk left at the bottom, I do not recommend standing on tiptoes and sticking your head all the way into the freezer to try to grab it. No, I am not speaking from personal experience here at all...

On Ask a Clean Person: Toilets, Ovens, and the Importance of Rubber Gloves

@cherrispryte Eh, I do it every time I wash dishes, so it's not too bad.

On Ask a Clean Person: Toilets, Ovens, and the Importance of Rubber Gloves

For sponges: You can disinfect your sponge by zapping it in the microwave for 60 seconds. (And if you have a dishwasher, you can pop it in top rack of the dishwasher to disinfect.)
