15 reasons why you should go by bicycle. I’m inspired, and am determined to get over my dread of riding up the hills to and from school (and must, additionally, get over the anger I feel when drivers beep at me because I dare to inconvenience them by legitimately riding my bike on the road. I will simply wave my tiny fist at them, and get move on).
The banana bunker: to keep you banana from getting smooshed and bruised during travel. Ahem…um.…*blush*
Marshmallow fluff. I’m enamoured by its strange dichotomy: white childish innocence and naughty smooshy gooeyness (I want to sink my fingers in it, or better yet, dive into a pool of it…reminiscent of playing in the mud as a child). It also possesses an intense sythetic sweetness, wickedly indulgent not because it is especially good, but because it is absolutely devoid of any nutritional value (I feel like I’m gorging myself on Twinkie guts).
As of yet untapped but (I’m thinking) marketable idea: marshmallow fluff wrestling.
Kickass sloppy joe recipe from my friend, Jason:

Happy post-Valentine’s Day! I hope your day was less lonely than mine. As if Valentine’s day wasn’t depressing enough, I recently came two stories (one in Vegetarian Times, one on NPR) about the child labor and child slavery involved in chocolate making. Occurring in the Ivory Coast of West Africa, cocoa harvested under heartbreaking conditions is used in chocolate manufactured by Hershey’s and M&M/Mars. So, next year when you by chocolate for your sweet, you may want to consider buying fair trade chocolate, ensuring that your delectable treat was made under just conditions. You can read (and hear) more about the issue here:
