@Elitist and Dull Wow. #2 is transcendently bad. #1 But not too short to be angry at strangers? How long is life?
@Blondsak Oh man that article is so dead on, especially this: "For the most part, four cup holders just mean more leeway to forget to throw out yesterday's coffee cup." I blush to think how much old coffee I have kept (for days, weeks...).
On Other Balls
I have to stop reading because I cannot be laughing this hard in public. But Highball Ice Cubes lol.
@FinalGirl Oh and Mike Dang (a.k.a. my personal finance hero) has a post on ways to help, too: http://thebillfold.com/2013/12/poverty-in-america/
@FinalGirl That's such wonderful advice. Thanks for sharing! (as a demography nerd I am particularly happy to see that Know the Numbers and Know your Local Stats are in the top 2/3) I'd add into the hands-on help section that if you are strong on stats and research in general, you can be of use as a grant writer (I used to freelance, but now I just volunteer: it can be a really cool way to interact with an organization because you can help them articulate what they do and pull in mad money to do it better/more).
@almond-joy Sign me up for the clove/sugar part.
@OhMyGoshYouGuys Dare I rewatch it? No, I daren't. Forever traumatized. Will always associate diamonds with vaguely threatening situations.
ETA: Did anyone else feel like he had lured her there? That was my suspicion.
@OhMyGoshYouGuys I do! I was sooo horrified that I thought I must've imagined it, because REALLY who approved that?
@kasa Fair point.
@all Thank you all! I was running out of non-brown rice casserole options and getting a wee bit discouraged. These are all now on my to-do list! :)
@CheddarBiscuit Sweet potato and pork and brown sugar is one of my all time favorite combos, but I'd never thought to make them a) together b) in a crock pot. Cannot wait for the results on that one.
@Madeline Shoes My favorite Julia Child episode is the one where she makes french onion soup. It's priceless.
@Rookie Those noodles do look suspiciously supple to be store bought. Maybe one day I will be inspired to make my own from scratch (early retirement and an abundance of free time?) because it looks like it would be totally worth it.
@taco salad Taco soup is my jam. I am also a fan of seven layer bean dip in the crock pot. :)
