This Just In: Burger King Promos Signal End of Civilization As We Know It

Two recent Burger King promotions are clear portents of dire events ahead, maybe even the end of Western Civilization.

Friday Follies: Mona Lisa Smile, Interrupted by Ronald McDonald

I don’t know if this is evidence of the advanced state of the French culture, or (more likely) proof that Europe is sliding into complete rot and decadence. It IS verification that fast food is more acceptable and accesible than ever before…

Friday Follies: Avoiding the Leftover Hotdog Blues

The Perfect Bachelor’s Hot Meal in Seven Minutes or Less

Summer Research kicks off today at Texas Lutheran University, and I’m invited (again) to join the astonishingly fabulous faculty in Chemistry. It’s hard work and harder thinking, but very satisfying! (Good thing too, given the pay rate.) The only small quibble for me, I have the exact same students I had last summer.

Confessions of a Kitchenazi

Okay, so I started my New Year’s Resolutions a bit early; why wait? Besides, it was only a test run, to see if I liked it.

And I did.

I started keeping the kitchen scrupulously clean. That turned out to be a bigger challenge than I thought when I started. Years of bad habits are hard to […]
