On Hanks for the Memories

It took me three installments of this to figure out that THESE ARE ALL THE SAME GUY. God bless you, honey!

On Sex And Lies! The Iffy Science Of Measuring Calories

Not to mention that there is very little direct correlation between weight loss and improved health. We know that exercise and eating fruits and vegetables and avoiding processed food promote health. Sometimes these things also cause weight loss and sometimes they don't, but they improve health regardless.

On Not OK Cupid

I find it quite plausible that one phrase out of my date's lips could kill the evening.

How about this: "I don't really read"

On Maurice Sendak And His Editor Ursula Nordstrom: A Cautionary Tale

Everything about this post makes me so happy. I'm singing your father's song in my head to the tune of "Sooner or later, love is gonna get ya."

On My Attempt To Make The Perfect Nebraska Runza

I found this link helpful, because she explains how to freeze and reheat them. If you're going to go to this much work, may as well make a ton. I added cheese, which is how the Runza restaurant makes them, and also tried some with Swiss and Mushroom. I didn't notice a lack of seasoning, but that's probably down to the cheese.


I made these for my Nebraska-born boyfriend. He is now my husband.

On The No-Tears, No-Panic Thanksgiving Countdown Guide: Week 1

I'm bookmarking this for five years from now when I finish my Ph.D. and am no longer living in 500 square feet of space. Even if you claim we do not need white potatoes. That, sir, is a dangerous and insane idea. What do you put gravy on then?
