My new toy is fun.
My First Semi-Failure: Hash Browns for Breakfast
DO NOT SEE IT IN 3D IF YOU ARE SENSITIVE TO CGI OR 3D.
I am writing to you from a bar next to the theater, trying to focus on stable objects to lose the dizziness and motion sickness. Today is my friend’s birthday, this was the outing… And I was looking forward to said outing for a month. I have been psyched for this sequel since it went into production.
I barely made it 30 minutes. I took the glasses off for minutes at a time to just see it blurry bc I thought it would make it better. I ended up having to leave. Like leave leave wait for my friends leave.
UPDATE: According to my friend who now times *everything* on her new ladies’ Timex Ironman watch**, I only made it to 18 minutes.
Learn from me. JJ Abrams’ lens flaresTM and 3D do NOT mix, especially if you are an Old.
**I wore that watch to my boyfriend’s prom in 1995 because we could keep a running countdown of how long we had until prom was over.
Ollie and I have been watching a lot of Fringe lately and it dawned on me that I probably wouldn’t have left NYC when I did in the other world and thus get the chance to adopt him. So if I traveled to the other universe and brought back other Oliver (Fauxliver?) I could have two perfect pups and other universe me wouldn’t be sad, but instead, probably high-five me. I bet she has more bylines than I do, but whatever. I’d have two dogs. (Unless she got stuck in amber or some horrible vortex.)

One woman’s journey out of a singular food desert
Sorry if my checks on functionality spammed everyone who is following me with my very new and narcissistic food blog. I’m relearning how to cook for myself (though Ollie does taste tests and ratings) while learning how to garden (with the intention of eating things that I grow).
The main goal of this is to make myself create new or interesting meals and not get takeout or delivery. I used to be amazing at cooking, but weird hours and whatnot kind of killed the momentum. Plus, until recently, my refrigerator was only good for freezer burn, wilting vegetables and chilling drinks.
Ideally this will turn into a GOOP-type lifestyle blog for web types, shut ins and insane dog moms, but right now I’m just excited that nothing has caught on fire (yet). We’ll work on $980 shot glasses in a month or two.
I’ve been making this or variations on this recipe since college. My father, who (at the time) was…
(I know I have posted this on Tumblr before, but this version is the best I have made to date.)
Black Lentil and Vegetable Stew With Shrimp on Rice Pilaf
I wasn’t totally sure what I made (or intended to make) with this, but it works. Actually, it works…
Oh my god.
Happy Mother of Dragons Day
GOOD JOB MOMS
It’s so hot I decided to get ice cream and this happened.
