My parents met on the side of a small town road in the summer of 1975. My mom's car broke down and my dad stopped to help. They started talking and that was it. A year later they got married, and this July they will celebrate their 39th wedding anniversary. Isn't that the sweetest story? It's so sweet it gives me diabetes. Show More Summary
I’ve chronicled it many times, but hot wings are my side piece, and there are very few instances that would cause me to swipe left. I’ve seen many attempts to make a solid baked chicken wing, but there are just some things that will always be better than alternatives, and fried wings will always best baked ones. However, […]
I’m hooking into a corner hard, making my way down the side of Tasmania’s famed Cradle Mountain and the 2015 Hyundai Sonata is sticking to the coarse chip surface admirably. There’s not even a hint of protest from the tyres as I work the wheel enthusiastically, adjusting my line as the radius tightens just [...]
My Stanford colleague Huggy Rao and I devoted seven years to learning about what it takes to scale up excellence in organizations. We studied how leaders and teams build and identify pockets of goodness in organizations and spread such goodness...
Nothing sounds more romantic to me than chocolate dipped strawberries. Look, that may be because my longest standing relationship has been with chocolate (with a little bit of strawberry hanky panky on the side) or maybe that is just the world of Hollywood putting ideas in my head, but this incredibly decadent cocktail is enough to make you fall in love all over again.
We sat there in his car, in the snow, in the street, in total silence. That’s when I felt his fist crash against the left side of my face.
Yesterday I walked by BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group's W57, a "courtscraper" under construction on Manhattan's West Side. The slideshow has 20 photos from my short jaunt, moving in a clockwise motion from the southeast to the northeast. The building is scheduled to be completed before the end of the year.
On a Saturday night, when I’m lying in his arms, I note that he chose the same side of the bed as you. My mind takes inventory of all the ways he is not you: his smell is not yours, his hand does not curl around mine the way yours does, and his breath does not send shivers down my spine like your deep exhales do. But I’m with him, so I must be over you.
Side hustling, or the art of making money on the side, is one of my favorite things to do. Even now, as my side hustle has turned into my full-time job, I’m always looking for new ways to make money. I find it a fun challenge and itShow More Summary
Movies like The Scarehouse are why it’s simultaneously wonderful and awful to write film reviews. On the positive side, it gives me a chance to passive aggressively take out my frustrations on a terrible movie (sad, but true). On the negative side, I have to actually watch said movie. Just to get it out of the way: The Scarehouse is […]
I adore The Far Side, and this is one of my favorites: But it’s not true. If, that is, we have been working on our cat communication. When Mithrandir was a baby, a gentle “Now, Mithy” would propel him away … Continue reading ?
In the general area of Pune are three very ancient Buddhist cave temples/monasteries dating from about 150 BCE or even perhaps a little earlier. The most interesting of these, at least to my mind, is Bedsa. Situated on the side of aShow More Summary
So I’m watching an episode of my new favorite TV show, “The Librarians,” which is about a D&D adventuring party …. (Oh, wait, I’m sorry — it’s really about these “librarians” — who fight bad magic on the side of good with John Laroquette...Show More Summary
It was once my job to help develop new markets for Sailor Moon. At the time, I had some rather powerful data on my side regarding the success of the show in English-speaking territories. I had a #1 movie (Hearts in Ice) on Amazon. I had the #32 most popular Usenet group in the world. I had television ratings that tripled when seasons three and four premiered.
Stuff I don't get about some of my fellow travelers on the left....
While the fighting is always nice, my favorite elements of modern Mortal Kombat games are the extra bits—challenges, unlockables, and side activities outside of the core one-on-one battles. That's why I'm excited about Mortal Kombat X's Faction War meta game. Read more...
While I was waiting for my flight at Washington Dulles International Airport, I spotted a cart off to the far right side of the gate at which I was sitting; and I saw people taking items from the cart. The sign on the cart had Have One On Us. Show More Summary
When I was in grad school I'd meet my thesis advisor, Catherine, on Tuesday nights at a café on New York's Upper West Side. We'd sit together at a small table, where she'd have me read my fresh, newly written poems out loud. It was an exercise to hear how the poems sounded, a way to help pinpoint any hiccups in the rhythm, line breaks and so on. Show More Summary
I’m trying to lose weight, but my boyfriend, who I’ll call Joey, keeps sabotaging me. Like, if I want a side salad, he’ll talk me into ordering the French fries as a reward because I’ve been so good with my diet all week. Or he’ll stock his freezer full of ice cream knowing full well […]
Chicken, beef, and pork are simply wonderful. Whatever meal I eat includes one of these three meats. A side salad might wander into the picture now and again, but it'll never be the focal point of my plate.
