I wrote a list and scheduled it to post hours later and it disappeared. {{deep sigh}} I needed a few laughs this week and you probably need them too.

What Happened When I Lived According to the Pinterest Popular Page will make you laugh …

…so will People In London Tried To Label The 50 US States On A Map

…so will The 2014 Hater’s Guide to the Williams-Sonoma Catalog

I’m going to be baking and sampling a lot of cookies this week and next. This Winter Citrus Booster with Ginger and Sweet Potato should negate the cookies, right?

And PUBLISH.

Thanks for reading.

It’s been a long week. An emotional week. I’ve been equally engrossed and disengaged from social media all week. I’ve tried to be conscious of what I am consuming.

Chris Rock has pretty much burned it all down this week. This Vulture interview is great and so is this interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “To say that black people have made progress would be to say they deserve what happened to them before.”

What the Eric Garner Grand Jury Didn’t See. “This is an American problem,”

W. Kamau Bell wrote a great piece On Being a Black Male, Six Feet Four Inches Tall, in America. “It’s not that I think that I will be killed by a police officer. It’s just that if I am, it won’t be a surprise.”

Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Tamir Rice: It is up to us to stop the insanity. “I understand there are good cops out there, just as I understand not every black man stopped by an officer is an angel. But you shouldn’t have to be an angel to stay alive.”

I see all these great posts during the week and I think I’ll remember where I saw them and then, of course, I forget where I saw them. Welcome to my brain.

Friday Night Meatballs: How to Change Your Life with Pasta was a good read. I love the idea of creating a community through food. Duh, right? I periodically think about doing something similar to this, like a Sunday brunch once a month, but then I get caught up in the details and get overwhelmed and my idea goes nowhere.

Women Rejecting Marriage Proposals in Western Art History made me chuckle. “is this man seriously wearing red tights while he proposes at me

At hotels, I always take the shower gels, lotion and shower cap. And the pens (Why do I take the pens? How many pens does a person need?). And sometimes the tea bags. It has never crossed my mind to take towels or comforters. Ew. WHO TAKES COMFORTERS? Those things gross me out. A Hotel Employee Answers: What You Are And Aren’t Supposed To Take From Your Hotel Room.

On Kindness: My Mother is Sick is a beautiful read.

Thanks for reading.

Looking in peoples’ fridges is something I, without a doubt, love to do. It’s fascinating!

I need to motivate myself to cook this week. I’ll use my Soup and Stews board on Pinterest for inspiration.

I’ve become slightly obsessed with the idea of Peshtemals. I haven’t bought any yet … but I’m close.

The brains of kidney donors seem built for generosity. This is fascinating and surprising, but not at all surprising.

The fact that Slow Reading is actually a term is disturbing. But I get it: the Internet has zapped my attention span, too.

Thanks for reading.

Damien Rice has a new CD scheduled for release next month. I’ve watched this YouTube performance of The Greatest Bastard … too many times.

These 16 Things to Know Before You Date an Introvert are so spot on.

Not that Kind of Girl and Yes, Please are on my to-read lists. I’m starting NtKoG tomorrow!

Spatchcock Chicken is definitely on my to-cook list. Maybe I’ll make an attempt this weekend.

Just scrolling through 45 Photos That Will Annoy You More Than They Should makes my skin crawl. No. 9 and No. 32 made me laugh out loud.

Thanks for reading.

Now that I’m spending more time with a little one around, who is always saying “Let me see” and “Let me help” in the kitchen, I want to make things she can help with. I think she’s going to love this Caramel Apple Bar. I think we’re going to love them, too, honestly.

I find it fascinating to see What Kids Around the World Eat for Breakfast. Now, I want to eat what the kids in Istanbul are eating, but I’m sure as a kid, I would have loved breakfast in Amsterdam.

You know how we talked about tonics and healthy things to drink last week? Well this Ginger & Turmeric Honey Bomb Is definitely in the rotation. I love this stuff!

The last thing I do at night and the first thing I do in the morning is look at my phone. I know – terrible. I’m really trying to quit. These 10 Things to Do the First 10 Minutes of Your Day are a good start.

I need to make this Apple Peel Bourbon pronto and then start making Indian Summers with it.

Thanks for reading.

I don’t hate to cook. I still found An Argument for Never Cooking Again to be a really good read.

I’m getting into health tonics. This time of year, my allergies are the worst. I’m pretty much medicated 24 hours a day. Elderberry syrup has nothing to do with allergies, but it may help us fight the upcoming cold and flu season. I recently bought a bottle, but the next step is to make it.

Speaking of confronting cold and flu season head on, and health tonics, I made fire cider about 6 weeks ago (it has to steep for 4 weeks) and we’re pretty addicted to it. If addicted is the right word. This stuff is pungent, but it will grow on you. That’s a shining endorsement.

All the comments on every recipe blog made me laugh and roll my eyes. They’re all so true. What is wrong with people?

I want to test if The One Lipstick That Looks Good On Everyone actually looks good one me.
