Random Single Gal Recipe: The Grilled Turnip Sandwich Of Dreamz

Random Single Gal Recipe: Grilled Turnip Sandwich

Have you ever made a sandwich and thought, “Everything I’ve ever done in my life pales in comparison to the amazing achievement that is this sandwich”? That’s what happened to me yesterday after I made this sandwich. It’s vegetarian but packed full of flavor thanks to fresh mozzarella, crispy turnips (which are in season a lot of places right now and surprisingly versatile to cook with), and a spicy aioli. Damnit I’m making myself hungry just thinking about it. Gotta go make another one now. Read on for the super easy recipe! Keep reading »

I am one of those people who doesn’t mind messiness as long as I don’t see it. This is why many of my drawers are stuffed with receipts and knick knacks, my bathroom cabinets are horrifically disorganized, and the top of my TV has never known the sweet touch of a dust rag. This is also why I love carpet — dirt, hair, dust, and a multitude of other slovenly sins can just be crammed down into it until you get around to vacuum. Out of sight, out of mind. Gross? Maybe, but it’s the truth. Keep reading »

So Much For Vanity Sizing: In Japan You Can Buy Clothes In Size “Fat”

This is a clothing label produced by a Japanese brand called, fittingly, Fatyo, which has opted to forgo the traditional sizing model of small, medium, large, and extra-large, and instead label clothing with “twitch,” “skinny,” “fat,” and “jumbo.” Well, these terms are definitely … descriptive, if not particularly flattering. Would you ever buy a piece of clothing that had the word “fat” on the label? What about “twitch”? Maybe we should just stick to numbers? Those work pretty well. [UPI]

“People always try to pop off or call her bluff at bars. One of them, I don’t want to say the guy’s name, but he’s the lead singer of a very popular rock band. His initials are C.K.”

–Blake Shelton revealed in this week’s issue of Rolling Stone that his wife (and the mag’s cover girl!) Miranda Lambert once got in a bar fight with a certain rock star. Upon reading this and seeing the “C.K.” initials, my mind immediately went to Nickelback singer/Avril Lavigne soulmate Chad Kroeger, but I assumed that was just because I’m always thinking about Chad Kroeger. Plus, the thought of Miranda throwing down with Chad Kroeger at a bar seemed to good to be true. Right? Right? Turns out it’s totally true. Apparently the brawl went down at Miranda’s 27th birthday party, when drunk Chad was trying really hard to get the birthday girl to do a shot with him. When Miranda said no, Chad went into full-on douche mode and told her she didn’t need to be “a bitch” about it. Miranda, being Miranda, threw her drink in his face. New favorite celebrity anecdote? Check. One more reason to love Miranda? Double check. [EOnline]

Storm Sexism: People Take Male-Named Hurricanes More Seriously Than Female Ones, And The Death Toll Rises Because Of It

There are a lot of places women don’t get taken seriously as seriously as men — workplaces, sci-fi conventions, the military, politics — but a new study just proved that our culture’s tendency to think of women as weak and inconsequential actually has a measurable death toll, in a surprising form: hurricanes. Weather researchers noticed that hurricanes with female names usually result in more deaths. When they charted the numbers, they saw how dramatic the difference really is: in the past 50 years, the most damaging female-named hurricanes averaged 45 deaths each, while the most damaging male-named hurricanes averaged 23. That’s nearly double the loss of life. And the results were even more jarring when they compared storms with strong masculine names to storms with strong feminine names. According to the study, “The model suggests that changing a severe hurricane’s name from Charley … to Eloise … could nearly triple its death toll.” Keep reading »
