He’s the Taco to my Fish (ew gross)

Fair warning: there’s gonna be a lot of bragging rights in this post. Also: I realize I do a lot of bragging as it is but you know what, live with it. So we’ve established that I am not outdoorsy. I do not sleep in tents. I don’t crouch in dirt to pee unless I’m(…)

You know I’m not one for apologies. Same goes for helping you move, sleeping in a tent, wearing “flats”, and playing a team sport of any kind.  But I love you so much, my loyal little readers, that I say a very solemn and heartfelt I’m sorry for slacking on this here blog for as(…)

To the Haters of Adelaide:

So I found myself in Australia the other day, as you do. I was there for Oz Comic Con (go to there, it’s AWESOME), and although I’ve been lucky enough to spend a fair amount of time in Australia over the years, this time around I was going to have a few days free to get the(…)

Hawaii-Style Chicken and Rice

So it’s snowing here. I’m fed up with winter. I’ve had it with my high-heeled open toed sandals peeking at me from the depths of my closet. My sweaters have been in a relentless rotation. My hands are constantly cold and I seem to have had the sniffles for months now, which means a chapped(…)
