People sometimes look at me funny when they find out about my love of coffee. But aren’t you some kind of health nut? (Hippie-dippie, tree-hugging freak, that’s me!) And coffee’s not exactly a “health food,” is it? (I would argue that’s debatable. Check here, here and here.) No cheese but coffee, yes? (No baby nourishment by-product […]

Last night, my friend generously hooked me up with a free ticket to see Cansei de Ser Sexy courtesy of one of her roommates. (Thanks Danielle!)

I’ve become a master at using the squatty potty. No more awkwardly trying to hide a pee-soaked boot. (I have no shame. I’ll admit that happened.) No more holding it praying I make it until I get to one of the buildings with a “modern WC.” That might be more than you cared to know. […]
