On Defending Manhattan From America: Pete Wells and Guy Fieri

@ContainsHotLiquid Yeah, I think the review is more FOR the flyover folks who visit NY. This argument that no tourist reads the Times is weirding me out - lots of people who don't live here read them Times, and lots of people who visit NY and read the Times are susceptible to visiting a shitty celebrity restaurant.

On Dear Pamela Geller, If Someone Rips Down Or Otherwise Defaces The Disgusting Racist Advertisements You Have Won The Legal Right To Display In New York Subway Stations, I Will Not Know Anything About How That Might Have Happened

@SkinnyNerd I believe in freedom of speech, but I don't believe that the city has an obligation to display it. Particularly when that speech is designed to inflame psychos and paint a target sign on a heavily populated, difficult-to-evacuate area as a place for said psychos to direct their rage.

On The Mindy Problem

@Pop Socket Mindy Kaling is a bigger success than Tina Fey? I don't think so.

On What TV Character Have You Wanted to Be?

@JennFizz Ahhhhh I wanted to be all of them too! Dangerous, though - a bout of West Wing convinced me to sign up for the LSAT, and that leads nowhere good.

On What TV Character Have You Wanted to Be?

How did no one say Sydney Bristow?! Beautiful, ass-kicking, multilingual, loyal friend, able to break into top secret labs in Taiwan without any intra-agency help in order to prove her fake loyalty to the evil SD-6 directorate, patriotic, apparently impossible to bruise, possessing an amazing fuck-you swagger, lusted after by both Michael Vartan AND Bradley Cooper, and the daughter of VICTOR GARBER???? Also: wigs.

Cons: constantly a target of violence, must deal with Sloane's creepy paternalism, somehow immune to Bradley Cooper's charms (?).

On 'The Thorn Birds': When Young, Sexy, Straight Priests Roamed The Earth

@Meg Morrison@twitter Same, right down to "ignored the whole seducing-a-priest bit." I always found it confusing... isn't the character's real name Margaret? Why isn't my name Margaret? I also know a Margaret whose nickname is Megan. Oh, the Irish.

On How To Make Weeknight Pasta Sauce

@AnonymousHoward I disagree with most of this, except for oregano (oregano sucks). You will pry the onions I'm using in my sauce out of my cold, dead, onion-y hands, and only after you get through the fresh pasta I keep in the fridge (I work near a specialty shop where an actual Italian grandma makes it in the back. It's $2.50 a pound). But my purism and your purism clashing is a beautiful thing.

Oh also - a little pasta water in the sauce AND a little pat of butter will make it smooth and glossy. I recommend.

On 'The Secret Circle': Teen Witches In ZOMG Love

I call the cat thing "push-push." My friend calls it kneading dough. My mom doesn't call it anything, she just starts freaking out and goes, "awwwwww!!!!!! Awwwwww!!! That's what they do to stimulate their mother's milk!!!!"

BTW my cat will occasionally, while doing push-push, take a little piece of blanket in her mouth and pull/chew on it simultaneously. It's kind of the best.
