For me, many of these are half-truths. I don't need karaoke or drink, sadly, to slur "Don't Stop Believin'", nor do I need to be stoned to eat too many Doritos. They just have to be on and around. I mean, booze and pot help, but I rarely need that first indulgence to get to the next one. If that makes sense.
Also, mentioned upthread: white wine. I love nothing more than getting my day drunk or after work slow drunk on with white wine. I tell myself I'm not the stereotype because I drink it out of a juice glass.
I can't get into Wolf Hall. What is wrong with me?
@supernovice 2) Eyeko is my favorite liquid liner.
@lemonadefish When I worried that I was pregnant (and did not want to be) I understood everything as a sign of pregnancy/not pregnancy, depending on my mood. I can only imagine having the opposite dilemma, you have my sympathies and hugs.

My cover is not on this list! I'll have to try and find it. Hopefully someone buried that last cover deep in the pits of Tartarus.
I second the Ottolenghi rec. I also have Jerusalem and am cooking from it constantly. Consider Nigel Slater, especially Tender Vol. 1, for vegetables. His recipes are easy and unpretentious.
@adorable-eggplant You guys are quick! Or I'm getting distracted by my work. It is hot and sticky where I am (at least I think, because the AC in my building must be on the highest setting). An Old-fashioned sounds excellent, as does the Aviation. Basically, I'm looking for something that has mostly alcohol, at most a splash of something else. Pop/soda has no business in my drink today.
Pinners, I'm going to happy hour in 1.5 hours. Help me pick my first drink! It must be liquor based.
@iceberg I still wear mine. I do not have a wedding band, so it's the only formal ring I have. It's a relatively simple and discreet ring, and it more or less suits my personality, so I don't mind wearing it all the time.
