Seriously, Amazon? Subscribe and Save stories…

H and I decided to get Amazon’s Subscribe and Save service for groceries we use often, stuff that’s bulky to carry, and stuff that’s cheaper or offers more variety than we get at our regular grocery store. Our first box arrived with a 12-pack of canned ravioli on top of a smashed 30 ct box of 1oz bags of chips. Here’s video evidence: Contacted Amazon and they refunded the whole thing. No need to ship it back, they said. So…

Delivery Food for Healthy People

I’ve mentioned that we get Door to Door Organics delivered every other week. This means we have fresh produce for the week when we don’t go to the grocery store. It’s pretty awesome. Right now we have peaches and nectarines. Plus we got garlic, a lemon, green beans, capsecums, and beets for roasting, plus some bananas. It’s $23 for Door to Door Organics to deliver it to my door. When they show up, they actually knock instead of just leaving…

Penny Dreadful Tarot…and it’s a show too.

Breakfast Bar Woes

H’s sister, Girl-H introduced me to Lara Bars a few years ago. Damn, they are tasty. They’re made entirely out of dried fruit, tree nuts, and seeds.

Sometimes I have a Fage yogurt, but if left to my own devices, I tend to eat the…

Best Dishes

Before I begin with today’s post, I just have to say:How in the name of complete and utter fuck is it September already? Moving on…When I was on college, I once whipped up some green bean casserole after a night of drinking and et cetera. A couple of my friends were amazed by it. “Green beans and mushrooms and some kind of creamy sauce?” Outrageous! I didn’t know how anyone could get through life without encountering green bean casserole. This…

knock on the wall…

Checked out The Orphanage today after buying it a long while ago. Damn, it was amazing. Beautifully shot, great cast, and plenty of surprises. It was creepy throughout, damn scary in parts, and had a motherfucking gut punch I in no way saw coming.So yeah, bravo once again, Guillermo Del Toro. Speaking of movies, the remake of Maniac was fucking incredible. Exactly what it needed to be, plus Elijah Wood. Very strong camera work, excellent stylized kill scenes, and just…
