LOCALS ONLY: I’m keeping one book on hand for loaning out to starving artists and such. The only catch is that you'll be responsible for getting it to the next person on the list. If you shirk this duty and have to be chased down, I’ll sick my hounds on you. #Modesto #GoodReads

So easy that I feel guilty calling it a recipe. #TraderJoes  
This Green Goddess Chicken recipe could have easily originated in a Recipes for Dummies book. It's that easy.

I am hosting a UK exclusive 'Kindle Countdown' sale this weekend for my memoir "The Complicated Geography of Alice." (A countdown sale works by starting with a low price on the first day of the sale and working back up to the full price by the last day of the sale.) The sale will run from Friday, January 30 through Monday, February 2. The price will begin at £1.99 on Friday, increase to £ 2.99 on Saturday, and so on. Please share with friends over the pond who might enjoy.  #LGBT #UK #GoodReads http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00QIWPEQ4

"Salma Hayek’s #Everly has got mother problems, daughter problems and ohmygod you wouldn’t believe the backstabbing bitches she works with. To top it all off she’s got a slave-driving boss who is so demanding that Everly hasn’t had a day off in years. What good are to-die-for shoes if you never get outside in them?"

Okay food. Good service. Superb Mint Juleps. Distracting loud country music piped into the dining room, but overall, a decent meal.
