Path of Partiality

24 hours to go until the Great Eclipse, and I’m pretty excited! I’ve read some people grumbling about the hype and how they’re sick and tired of hearing about it, but I figure this is essentially a once-in-a-lifetime experience and will be one of the coolest things I’ll ever witness. I am all in. WeContinue reading “Path of Partiality”

You Can Ring My Bell

We had the longest, most hilarious debate at work on Friday. It all started when I walked with Sarah to the post office.

Then again, it wasn’tContinue reading “You Had Me at Bacon”

(Don’t Fear) The Pepper…or Salt

I hate when you order something that looks delicious, only to take a bite and find that the chef under seasoned it. Case in point: I went to the farmer’s market earlier today. Part of the fun is in stocking up on fresh produce, and I definitely came away with my share. Apples, cherry tomatoes,Continue reading “(Don’t Fear) The Pepper…or Salt”
