On Calculating the Costs: Spaghetti With Olives and Anchovies

ooh, and, if you liked your first foray into pasta-with-anchovies, try puttanesca: grape tomatoes, parsley, garlic, capers, kalamata olives, and anchovies.

On Calculating the Costs: Spaghetti With Olives and Anchovies

haHA!: "I usually will substitute almonds for pine nuts in these kinds of pesto dishes because do you know how much pine nuts cost?"

On Some Costs Associated With a Relationship

Agh, as someone who recently poured a lot of time/energy/funds (gas, tolls, personal grooming) into a short-lived and ultimately ill-fated short-but-significant-distance relationship...yes. Just: yes. Thanks, Bob.

@coupdefoudre I think it's just a hide-a-key scenario.

On The Best Time I Sold My TV

@jquick Valid question! I didn't spend all $300 on it, and I am a pretty big fan; aside from that, it was an amazing night with my best friend--that alone made it worth it. And I'd rather accumulate experiences over things any day.

On The Best Time I Sold My TV

@gl "The actual objects I mean, not necessarily the shows that reside therein." Totally agree. I love love love television SHOWS, but don't really care about the medium. When I was sick with a stomach bug last winter I watched the entirety of Girls on my iPod.

On The Best Time I Sold My TV

Addendum: the day after I submitted this to the Billfold, my roommate, who's traveling for the holidays, texted me and said "A friend of mine is offering me a flat-screen TV for free. Would it be ok to put it in the living room? Feel free to say no if you'd prefer a living room that's less Tv-centric." So I will not even be flat-screen-TV-less for long, it seems.
