Chefgirl Right now I'm very surprised to have a file on my YouTube channel going viral due to its inclusion of Christine O'Donnell some twelve years ago.
Dec 9, 2016 Chefgirl commented on Dr. Marion Nestle, Food Policy Wonk Extraordinaire, on Soda Taxes, Eating Local, and Eating What You Like.
Always grateful that my folks treated soda pop as a rare, special, instead-of-dessert treat growing up (and we were not a family that ate dessert every day). It meant I never looked at is as an option to quench my thirst. Today I probably drink one, 12-oz soda every two or three months and I choose the good stuff, Mexican Coke, artisan fruit sodas. And they are all still treats but I don't feel a bit deprived drinking my cups and cups of water every day.
Dec 9, 2016 Chefgirl commented on Police Reports Illustrated: Cool Kicks Lead To Cheap Punch.
Once made plans to meet a guy at a Starbucks to buy a printer. He gave me a very detailed description of himself, age, height, hair color, the clothing he'd be wearing and suggested I write it down; didn't bother.

I just looked for the only guy in the store carrying a printer. Easy-peasy.
Dec 8, 2016 Chefgirl commented on Portland to Tax CEOs Who Earn Way More Money Than Their Rank-And-File Employees.
CEO in my company earns (salary only; this does *not* take stock options or his eventual golden handshake into account) more in one business day than I make in six years. 1650/x what I make.
Oct 19, 2016 Chefgirl commented on What If Donald Trump Were Gay?.
Love Peter Serafinowicz has rightly gotten lots of attention for Sassy Trump but to see Peter himself, portraying Trump about a decade ago, have a gander at this clip from his BBC Sketch show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YUeeIPxO…

Toxic Masculinity doesn't need a gun. This was sadly brought home to me in late June when a friend of mine lost her 21 year old son to that situation. He was snoozing after a bonfire/house party next to his brand new (two weeks) girlfriend at her place (they lived in the same apartment complex; one full of other college students); her ex showed up and someone let them in (there were several people there conked out on the furniture/floor), saw them, attacked my friend's son with a knife as he slept and killed him.
Jun 3, 2016 Chefgirl commented on High-Speed Police Chase on Aurora Predictably Ends With Crash.
Seems a pretty easy answer; if the occupants of the speeding car are suspected of a serious crime, a high speed police chase is warranted; if it's just someone speeding, the police call ahead to their comrades but do not endanger the public by giving chases.

Otherwise we have this: http://community.seattletimes.nwsource.c…

The young man killed in the story had just spent a day hiking with his fiancee, his brother, a few other friends and my sister. They had driven two cars there and back; my sister was in the second car, which came across the wreck of the first on the way home.

Here's Donald Trump giving a guided tour of his mansion back in 2007!

OK, it's Peter Serafinowicz, a British comedian who is quite-rightly getting attention these days for overdubbing Trump's speeches. But he was already mocking Trump nearly a decade ago.

Not even a word that this brings Seattle's Adrian Latourelle back to town as this show's Reverend Jay? Have a look at The Stranger archives of shows at Annex Theatre in the very early 90s; Adrian starred in more than half of them before following his buddy Paul Giamatti back east to grad school at Yale. I did a few plays with Adrian back in high school and we all knew we were seeing the salad days of a young man who could swing it as a professional. Will look forward to seeing this show.

The free (tips accepted) cookbook Good and Cheap is a great one for Young and Poor students too http://www.leannebrown.com/
