  1. I'm always several yards ahead of my hiking club and people often ask me what I'm listening to that spurs me to move so quickly. They're always pretty surprised when I tell them it's a This American Life podcast.
  2. I just started Roxane Gay's Hunger. I'm only about 40 pages in but so far it's not grabbing me as much as her previous books have.
  3. Gee, if Nat owned the chicken joint, I would think he'd call it Free Bird.
  4. I guess that was Samantha's job.
  5. Remember when Enid told Carrie that her pool of appropriate men had shrunk and asked Carrie why she was wading in that pool? I felt the same way about 5'3' Carrie dating 6'5" Aiden. Leave him to the tall women!
  6. Whereas I can't wait for the U.S. Open.
  7. Gee, that sounds kind of fun to me! BOO!
  8. I just finished Al Franken Giant of the Senate and really enjoyed it. It's a memoir so it starts back in his childhood but it wraps up post inaugural so it feels like the ink is barely dry on the page.
  9. This is a huuuuuge pet peeve of mine, especially when it's "Real Americans think..." as if anyone who disagrees isn't a real American.
  10. Aww, I came to this thread just to see if the new season was starting soon because I saw Tim mentioned in another thread and got to thinking how much I've missed him.
  11. @biakbiak, I printed that recipe for future reference. Got the drumsticks but not thighs and I've already done my weekly shop. Please let us know how it comes out. And whether frying the almonds is absolutely necessary. I usually opt to roast nuts. I picked up mostly veggies at the market this morning so I'm looking forward to bruschetta, black eyed pea salad and a green apple and gorganzola tart for weekend suppers.
  12. That's the beauty of having f*** you money: you don't have to lower yourself to make a living.
  13. Agree on My Motherboard, My Self and I Love a Charade and will add a vote for Hot Child in the City. Worst for me are the California episodes (both LA and SF) and The Post It Always Sticks Twice.
  14. I had forgotten about it but it shows that Alex seems to think his issues can be solved by violence and that's hardly an admirable trait.
  15. I just finished Saints for All Occasions and didn't care for its unrelenting seriousness. Having now read three of her novels, I can conclude that J. Courtney Sullivan, like Jodi Picoult, is one of those wildly popular authors that I just can't get into.
