Before I got around to finishing season two of the notorious HBO dramedy Girls, I had already read detailed analyses of the “rape scene” on all the major blogs.

Snacks should be incorporated into busy schedules


One of the worst things about being gluten-free? It’s hard to snack. I’m not talking about those celebrities who say that their favorite snack is “celery.” Fact: Celery is not a snack — it’s just God’s way of saying, “Hungry?
