Today is my 35th birthday. Last year I told you about 34 things I still don’t know, and the year before that, I told you about 33 things you’ll know by the time you’re 33. This year has been a particularly rough one for me, but I think I’d like to tell…
Today is my 35th birthday. Last year I told you about 34 things I still don't know, and the year before that, I told you about 33 things you'll know by the time you're 33. This year has been a particularly rough one for me, but I think I'd like to tell you about 35 unexpected pleasures of adulthood... 1. That in general, the fewer fucks you give about how much people like you, the more people like you. 2. The thing where you used to swear when yo...

Last year I started a project to watch every crappy made-for-TV holiday movie I could get my grubby little paws on, and Tweeted about them (sort of). The recap of 2014 is here. This year I have a whole new crop of greatness to share with you. 1. The…
Last year I started a project to watch every crappy made-for-TV holiday movie I could get my grubby little paws on, and Tweeted about them (sort of). The recap of 2014 is here. This year I have a whole new crop of greatness to share with you. 1. The Twelve Dates of Christmas I actually watched this one last year, but for some reason it didn't make my list... possibly because it's not actually that crappy! I mean, I can still be snarky about it a ...

I’ve been trying to: a) cook more at home and, b) eat more fresh produce from my CSA box. So I ordered a bunch of sweet potatoes this week and decided to make these twice-baked sweet potatoes, even though it’s not Thanksgiving or anything. Because I can,…
Looking for a sweet potato recipe? Well, you could try this one, but we suggest that you not be overly concerned with what it looks like before you eat it.

You guys, you guys. +Hank Green linked to my Twittahz. I am special. :) (And also a nerd, but you know...)
Facebook says it’s now streaming more video than YouTube. To be able to make that claim, all they had to do was cheat, l…

I’m inside eating my feelings and dreaming of the day I will be motivated enough to make my backyard look better than shit. Here’s some inspiration from 3 years ago at the Azalea Festival in Wilmington, NC. I’ve decided I hate bird baths. They are gross…

I undertook a project in January to write a joke a day. I didn’t quite get a joke each day, but I wrote a lot of jokes I wouldn’t have written otherwise. And, yeah, before you bust me, some of these are less jokes and more observances of my life, but…
I undertook a project in January to write a joke a day. I didn't quite get a joke each day, but I wrote a lot of jokes I wouldn't have written otherwise. And, yeah, before you bust me, some of these are less jokes and more observances of my life, but humor can be observational and character-driven, so suck it. Here they are, in no particular order. I didn't write this joke this month, but I did write this joke, and I needed a picture to go in th...

Do you guys want to play #RealCarols with me? I’m trying to make it happen, ya know, like fetch. You just take something from a Christmas carol and make it, you know, true-ish to life. Ready? Go. Baby It's Cold Outside So Imma Use That as an Excuse to…

This post brought to you by Sterling. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Pintester. I admit, I’m not a real big bath person. I mean, by the time you fill the tub (hoping all the while not to run out of hot water), gather your reading…
Are you sick? Here, take a bath in this gross-looking water that may or may not bleach your body hair.

I don’t know why I always think it’s a good idea to sew things. I don’t have a sewing machine, for one thing. For another thing, I don’t sew, like ever. I mean, I sew buttons on things now and then, and then they fall off again, and then I just stop…
I was tempted by the siren-song of the Pinterest project 10-minute skirt. The reality check came in the form of a crappy product and a fat ass.

I know, people. I know. And I hate the thing where bloggers are like, “I’m so sorry I’ve been gone and you’ve had to live without me for these long, tortured weeks! I will try to do better because I know your whole world revolves around reading words out…
I haven't been around much lately. Here's a REALLY GOOD (no kidding) zucchini bread recipe to make up for it.
