Re: Community

At first, I felt a little "I think we just crossed a line!"-ish. But on rewatching (yes, I have a habit of rewatching shows I really like), it looks a little like Abed chose to squeal and collapse. Like, he's upset that Annie is messing with his stuff and wants to teach her a lesson. And w...

Re: Slang.

I always get the deep fried dough sticks when at dim sum. They are awesome.

I don't really do too much deep frying at home, not having a deep fryer and also wanting to keep the home a place where mostly healthy food is eaten.

The more risottos I try the more I become convinced that it's gotta be either mushroom or butternut squash. Those two are perfect.
