Last week, I had some allergic reaction stuff going on so I went to Urgent Care. Who kindly set up an appointment for me with a conveniently-located, in-network allergist.  You've already guessed that the allergist isn't in network and I didn't find out unt...

They're My Roots Too
Over the years, I've had plenty of opportunities to be disappointed in my fellow white people. From Vanilla Ice to All Lives Matter, we keep giving the world cringeworthy examples of how we need to do better. Like how very few white people are tweeting abou...

This post originally appeared on The Famished Freelancer on January 30, 2014. It's been below freezing for entirely too long, so naturally thoughts turn to pot roast. Mind you, we have no control over the heat in our apartment (which is copious), so it's no...

Monday Links
The Sequel to the Philadelphia Story Katherine Hepburn Deserves  I read this in public and could not stop laughing out loud. Because, yeah, that story takes a really weird turn. Things My Newborn Has Done That Remind Me of the Existential Horror of the Huma...

Book Review: The Martha Washington Cookbook
