I love the internet and I love simple ways of collecting my favorite things about the internet. In addition to assorted curiosities, I'll likely feature three chord songs for struggling guitarists, simple recipes for incompetent/aspiring cooks and reflections on whatever media I'm consuming at the moment.

andrewgibby:

I’m never gonna wait

that extra twenty minutes

to text you back,

and I’m never gonna play

hard to get

when I know your life

has been hard enough already.

When we all know everyone’s life

has been hard enough already

it’s hard to watch

the game we make of love,

like everyone’s playing checkers

with their scars,

saying checkmate

whenever they get out

without a broken heart.

Just to be clear

I don’t want to get out

without a broken heart.

I intend to leave this life

so shattered

there’s gonna have to be

a thousand separate heavens

for all of my flying parts.

Cappuccino Ice Pop

Directions

  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 1/2 cups plus 2 tbsp. brewed espresso, at room temperature
  • teaspoons dark unsweetened cocoa powder, plus more for dusting

Directions

  1. Combine the cream and 1/4 cup condensed milk. Divide the mixture among the molds. Freeze until almost solid, about 1 hour.
  2. Meanwhile, in a bowl, whisk together the espresso, 2 tsp. cocoa powder and the remaining 1/4 cup condensed milk; refrigerate until cold.
  3. Divide the mixture among the molds. Insert the ice-pop sticks, piercing the cream layer; freeze until solid, about 4 hours. Run warm water over the molds to remove the pops; dust the cream layer with more cocoa powder.

Most people don’t care about politics. They’re not running around with these preformed opinions in their head. They worry about what they’ll make for dinner and how to get their kids to bed. And that hasn’t changed. For us, that’s an alien world. We think about politics all the time. But we’re not normal. The 24-hour news cycle has not really affected the average American who isn’t into politics. And that’s really important to remember.
