September 19, 2008

I’ve mentioned it before, but when I go home to Maine there are two things I have to eat while I’m there and they have absolutely nothing to do with lobster or blueberries. I always make a point to have an Italian Sandwich from Sam’s Italian Sandwich Shop, and I also have to have a […]

The Bodega Party in a Box

August 14, 2008

The brilliant Bodega Party in a Box kit arrived today. The Neighbors Project seriously out did themselves in the categories of overall functionality and cuteness.

The Latte Fairy

November 7, 2007

Once upon a time I received a Starbucks gift card and I used it diligently to purchase Grande White Chocolate Mochas and Venti Cinnamon Dolce lattes until the balance reached zero and I tossed it out. Unfortunately a few weeks later I received a note from Starbucks stating that they had added $5 to my […]

Halloween Cap’n Crunch (officially known as Cap’n Crunch’s Halloween Crunch) is now available in grocery stores, if you’re lucky enough to find it on a shelf. I feel that it’s my obligation to point out that not only does it turn your milk green, it will also turn your hands green if you decide to […]
