Food Trappin – Roast Chicken

Cleaning out my camera and came across some succulent chicken photos so I had to post them. Let me answer all the questions I know you’re going to ask: I seared the chicken first and finished it in the oven. It’s a cast iron skillet which is the only thing I roast chicken in. Ain’t…

#AnimeMonday – 6/26

It was hard to come to the end of Attack on Titan S2 last week, but it was definitely quite a ride. We’re coming on to the end of our spring anime picks so, new titles will be put into rotation across the board – as we also finished our last series; Death Parade. This…

Twitter Boundaries: 101

Twitter Boundaries 101 We are far past the lie of “it’s just Twitter” but you can keep believing that and you might get your ass handed to you 140 characters at a time. Social Media has been the start and end of lots of folks we know, and those who are only survived by a story…

No Reason to Reject the Ordinary

As an writer I’ve always hoped for a grander life, so that after I’d passed my prime or relevance, I could write a shocking, interesting memoir and be that cool old lady who had seen the world.

Hashtag Revolution

I went to work when I was happy, sad, sick, well, depressed, anxious, terrified and everything in between. Now, I don’t have that…

I, Robot

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/you-robot/ I’ve already discussed in a previous post my dislike to for washing dishes so I think I’ll flip this challenge a bit. If I were a robot, I would either be relegated to cooking or to caring for either older people or animals. Cooking I enjoy but not as much as I adore watching…

August Blues with a bit of News

August is a tough month for me, current events aside; the 3rd is my late Grandmother’s Birthday and the 19th marked one year since the passing of my Mother In Law.  I can’t believe it’s been a year already.  Beyond the forced acknowledgement of my family’s losses over the past two years, I’ve been making…

Strand Book Store – They get me

Picked up these two magnets today on my lunch break run along with The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides They have t-shirts as well. Clearly they give no damns about my budget.
