10 Apr Your Weekly Internet Spoils: Tax Edition

Here in the often great, often exasperating United States of America we are closing in quickly on Tax Day. Whether you hire someone else to do your taxes for you, attempt them yourself with some “friendly” software, or hide from the government by pretending to be dead, the stress of this season is a bit catching.   I’ve got some remedies for that, my darlings.   Shall we?   To consume and imbibe   For consuming…

03 Apr Your Weekly Internet Spoils: RoboCop Edition

If you are confused as to what an 80s robot policeman has to do with anything, fear not; it’s just that it’s Easter this weekend and I feel that the story of RoboCop really captures the theme of resurrection well. (I never did see the reboot. Was it any good? Let me know in the comments! Alternatively you can yell at me about my sacrilege, as is your right.)   In the meantime, I will…

27 Mar Your Weekly Internet Spoils: Relapse Edition

My darlings we have somehow found ourselves already one quarter of the way through the year, perhaps in triumph or perhaps in drunken tatters, sobbing over a finance report/our taxes. Inevitably many of us have tapered off in our commitment to those resolutions we so boldly made three months ago, while others maybe just completely forgot about them.   Not to worry though, my dears, because all that’s left is this: We ask ourselves if those pesky resolutions…

20 Mar Your Weekly Internet Spoils: Spring Edition

My calendar has quite helpfully informed me that it is The First Day of Spring here in the Northern Hemisphere and in the classic tyranny of calendars this makes it so throughout the lands, whether you have a foot of snow on your still-dormant yard, or are already sweating through temperatures that some people would consider summer.   At any rate we can celebrate with spring-themed food and beverage, and leave the Southern Hemisphere feeling awkwardly…

13 Mar Your Weekly Internet Spoils: St. Paddy’s Edition

St. Patrick’s Day is a very strange phenomenon, my darlings. (And I’ll get the pedantic lesson out of the way quickly: It’s abbreviated correctly as Paddy’s, not Patty’s, because it is not St. Patricia’s Day, which is in August. Though in the name of equality let’s start a day of reckless drinking in her honor. I am game.)   I am not entirely sure how a feast day for a saint has become a time to…

06 Mar Your Weekly Internet Spoils: Madness Edition

My darlings I don’t know if you know this about me, but I live in the great and terrible city of Austin; great because of the wide and amazing array of tacos available at nearly all times and terrible because next week hoards of strangers descend on the city for SXSW and some of them decide to stay forever and drive up our rent prices further.   After living here for over a decade, I…

27 Feb Your Weekly Internet Spoils: Margarita Edition

My darlings it has come to my attention that in having A Week last week I missed something very important and vital to us all: National Margarita Day. Now I must endeavor to make it up to us.   To consume and imbibe   Obviously we need choices because while your classic margarita is undoubtedly delicious and classic for a reason, it is healthy also to journey into the terrifying unknown and try new things….

20 Feb Your Weekly Internet Spoils: A Week’s Edition

I don’t know about you, my darlings, but I have had A Week. I hardly even noticed Fat Tuesday because of it, but ate two cupcakes for breakfast that day anyway as a happy coincidence. In the spirit of having A Week I present to you some quick-and-easy recipes in the hope that next week can be much less of A Week with just a little planning (ha ha) and one delightful labor-of-love recipe, because sometimes…
