The Vine: January 1, 2013
Happy New Year! And welcome to your resolutions open thread: share/gut-check your resolutions; get/give support for everything from new workouts to budgeting to cookie recipes; second-guess your break-ups with Diet Coke and post-10-PM chocolate.
I'll go first:
1. Order in less, cook more. Impatient + lazy = 80% of my Amex bill last month was Seamless. No good.
2. Read 50 pages every day.
3. Make my new true-crime blog, The Blotter, awesome. (We're working on the tags thing.)
After 13-odd hours, I'm feeling pretty good about things, having 1) lunched on a tortellini casserole I made myself while 2) and 3) reading a book about the trial and execution of Lincoln's assassins. But everyone's a Viking before we all have to go back to work…and I'm going to need some help sticking to 1), because history tells us that the very first time the cupboard gets down to farfalle and that goddamn can of peaches that has now lived in four different apartments, I'm going to flee to the greasy bosom of takeout lo mein.
Also: anyone got a maple cookie recipe? (Don't make me sift; thanks.)
How you doin'?
