Green Onion Does Fashion

Nordstrom, the clothing store that I am afraid will take all my money if I walk past it.  The store I cant even enter because my tax bracket is too low.  Nordstrom, #3 on Trump’s terrorist hit list behind Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Canadian dairy farmers, has released their new line of expensive dirty clothing.  For…

Sunday Mise en Place (Apr. 17 to 23, ‘017)

Firefight by Brandon Sanderson

I recently consumed and reviewed book one of the Reckoners Series, Steelheart.  Usually I try to mix things up and will not read the same author back to back.  When it comes to a Sanderson series though, there is a sense that no matter what other book I pick up all I will be able to…

Easter Mise en Place (Apr. 10 to 16, ‘017)

San Diego Comic Con- 1 Pass free to the right person

​I don’t know if you have seen this Craigslist ad from ‘Gordie’ yet.  It is pretty funny, creepy, beyond disturbing, but funny.  Essentially, ‘Gordie’ is a 56-year-old male who has left his wife and his amazing job as Supervising Manager at Soup Plantation.  Who would give up a sweet gig at Soup Plantation you ask?…
