Guess who went to Sephora today . . .
I’m always attracted to skincare products that sound edible. Thyme honey cream. Apple cleanser. Mmmmm …
The Help by Kathryn Stockett pt.1
The first thing that struck me about this book was the way the author chooses to write for her characters of color. These women are the titular “Help” - black maids to white women in the early 1960s in Jackson, Mississippi. They are made to speak in first person, in a sort of inner dialogue, which is rendered in a stereotypical thick Southern black dialect. There’s a lot of...
School is canceled!
I am way too happy about this. In other news, I got into this really great class called Law and Literature: Race and Gender, which is taught by my wonderful professor from Feminist Legal Theory. We’re going to be reading about a book a week, and, since I have to write weekly response papers anyway, I’m going to try to write a bit about each book on this tumblr. Now, these books are...

But it seems like the...
New Year's Intentions
Learn more about Nutrition and Practice What I Learn: I’d really like to have more of a coherent idea of how to relate to food ethically and nutritionally. I am only conscious of what I eat half the time - the other half is sort of “Hell, I have so much other crap to worry about, so who cares?” I’d like to cook more, and more simply so it doesn’t seem like such a huge...
velocipedestrienne asked: Rolls stuffed with slow-roasted tomatoes and basil? Share this recipe, pls. Sounds delicious!
Just took some dimetapp for my sniffles (yes, I am 10 years old) and now it’s making my stomach go all weird and hurty.
Do you think I could pretend to be a bad cook
for as long as it took to get on Anne’s team on Worst Cooks in America? No? In other news, I bought my seeds for this spring planting. We’re going minimalist this year: three types of heirloom cherry tomatoes (I tried to pick the weirdest looking ones) and a couple of peppers. And some corn seeds, because I figure I can just throw them in the community garden plot and see what...
