I’m disgusted yet intrigued. Here I am, on page 189 of Bossypants, when I stumble across a used Breathe Right nasal strip shoved in between pages.

I’m immediately curious about the previous reader of this library book, and why he or she chose this page as a receptacle for nasal waste.

Was it intentionally used as a bookmark? Or shoved here discreetly in a moment of shame?

Libraries really do bring the community together. I’m going to add to the fun and stick a bobby pin in at page 223. It’s a scrapbook and time
capsule all in one!

(no) soup for you


Think crockpots are just for old grandmas who reek of Chanel No. 5? Wrong. They’re the best thing ever.

Besides ice cream and puppies.

If you want to eat what’s in this photo, throw in chopped sweet potatoes, regular potatoes, carrots, celery, onion, mushrooms, cabbage, zucchini and yellow squash and add a chicken breast and a cup of water. Sprinkle with cayenne pepper, curry, sage, salt and oregano, and cook on low for 3.5 hours. Add a can of diced tomatoes toward the end if you’re feeling crazy.

Serve with grated Parmesan – serves 5-6.

*Don’t hide this recipe in an armoire.
