You know who annoys me more than newly converted Jesus freaks? Newly converted dieters. Today I was just trying to go to CVS to get some Tylenol when I was pounced on by “nutritional consultants” handing out samples of some new pom-soy-who knows what “nutrition” bar.

For Christmas – Hanukkah – Festivus – his Birthday I just got him a copy of Madhur Jaffrey’s (out of print) Curries to Kebab: […]

Greetings, St. Louis
