This is unacceptable. I will be boycotting The Huffington Post until they start paying their writers.

It's easy to forget what a dark and twisted story this is, but I made sure my playlist for +Quirk Books reflected this.

My friend's five-year-old daughter was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. Her child Liberty has 6 months to 2 years to live. I cannot imagine what they're going through. Please help if you can, even if only to share this post. I can't imagine what this family is going through right now, but my heart is breaking for them.

In keeping with all the mania for #TheMartian, here's my latest post for +Quirk Books. 
Ground control to Major Tom... Mark Watney, protagonist of Andy Weir's novel The Martian, is one fun and feisty astronaut. He may be stranded on a foreign planet, but he has a great attitude about it and is full of creative ideas on how to overcome his (seemingly impossible) predicament.

My latest post for +Quirk Books!
Yeah, he just got kicked out of prep school, but this seventeen-year-old is smarter than he gives himself credit for. And okay, he's judgmental and cynical, and the list of things he has contempt for is never-ending, beginning with grown-ups and phonies. Nevertheless, despite his prickly nature, ...

My latest playlist for +Quirk Books.

She's a hunter, a master archer, a fighter, and the beloved heroine of the Hunger Games series. Katniss Everdeen didn't ask to be thrust into the deadly televised competition the Capital uses to keep its districts docile. All she wants to do is protect her family and loved ones.

I love pretty much all Asian food, so I was biased to like this Malaysian place from the start. Nevertheless, I had a great dinner there. Beginning with a boozy Thai Iced Tea and some delicious roti, through to the noodle dishes my friend and I shared. The space is a bit cramped but cozy and service is attentive. Would definitely return and try more of the menu.

Modern Asian food in an intimate setting? Yes, please! A 7 course tasting menu for under $50? Sign me up! Some dishes were better than others but overall, a memorable meal. The mahi mahi taco was quite possibly the best taco I've had in my life and scallop and bacon satay was also terrific. The pork bun and short rib were both yummy but on the dry side but the edamame dumplings (which were shaped more like ravioli) and mini-ice cream cones that finished the meal were quite good. The cocktails were also terrific (try the rum punch, which packs a--well, you know--without being too sweet). Make sure to check out the bathroom and see how many movie quotes (which are piped in through speakers) you can identify.

It's no substitute for a real casino. There's a decent selection of slot machines, but the lack of table games is a bummer (and an electronic dealer is not the same). Also, casinos offer free drinks, so to charge for them at this place feels greedy. Seems like all the machines are tight here and I've heard it's hard to win money. I don't expect to be back any time soon.

Great place to go for a healthy lunch. The ingredients are fresh and well-prepared, with an emphasis on veggies and lean proteins. You always feel like you're doing something good for your body after eating here. Don't let the long lines intimidated you, because it moves quickly.

This is my happy place. Definitely the nicest casino I've been to in Atlantic City (and I've been to quite a few) and a lovely hotel with good dining options. I do wish there were more lower stakes tables ($5 tables are rare, if they exist at all) but hey, you get what you pay for. It's the small things, like serving drinks in glass cups instead of plastic ones, and having a general nice polish to everything instead of the worn feel of some of the casinos on the boardwalk. Also, the staff is unilaterally accommodating and super-nice, whether at the hotel, casino or restaurants. Can't wait for my next visit.

Nice spot for budget-friendly Japanese food (with some Korean options thrown in for good measure). Has tables if you want to stay and eat, but it's a very basic cafeteria vibe, so I usually grab and go. The sushi is quite good and if you have a sweet tooth, there's also a selection of desserts (the mochi is my favorite).

Best cupcakes in the world! Some find the icing too sweet but I can't get enough of it, especially the chocolate. The cake itself is moist and just barely contains the generous coating of icing. I wouldn't recommend waiting if the line is around the block because I'm impatient, but it's definitely worth the wait.
