Welcome once again to the Frisky Power Rankings, where I rank women’s flat track roller derby according to my whims/in-depth knowledge. Oh, wait, no games have happened in forever, and I’m tired of making the same jokes. So, this month we are ranking….Girl Scout cookies. Because this is my website and I was a Girl […]

Per request, I’ve covered the cold truths about ice cream (hahahahaha) with these definitive ice cream power rankings. Eating ice cream every night for a couple of months has prepared me for just such an undertaking. I can, and will defend these positions if necessary.

You need: Whole wheat gnocchi. Trader Joes’ takes two minutes to cook. Chopped broccoli florets, bite-sized (Get it pre-chopped: I don’t judge. Or you’ll have time while the water boils.)

It seemed like a good idea to go for an outdoor skate at around noon without having eaten anything. Turns out, it wasn’t a good idea. But I survived. About four miles in to my nine-mile skate, I fell while attempting to stop. Even better, I was trying to stop for a family who was taking […]

I’m off! My sweetie has two weeks off with no work obligations, so I’m taking about a week off too, just to hang out in Portland and do all the fun stuff you don’t get to do when you’re in an office all day.  The plan: roller derby weekend, eating, drinking, and floating, then another […]
