New Year's Eve Stir-fry
from Jamie’s Food Revolution Note before starting: Chop. Everything. You are working with a super hot pan, and you need to be able to just head, dump, and stir. :) Also, have an extra bowl on hand and a slotted spoon/pasta server for the removal of the meat halfway through. Yes, I’m boring—I’m spending New Year’s Eve at home, but that’s OK! I like my own...

Reverb10 Day 31: Core Story
Author: Molly O’Neill Harper Collins Children’s @molly_oneill Prompt: Core story. What central story is at the core of you, and how do you share it with the world? (Bonus: Consider your reflections from this month. Look through them to discover a thread you may not have noticed until today.) My life has definitely had a theme, if you want to put it that way (imagine Miss Shields...

Author: Kathryn Fitzmaurice The Year the Swallows Came Early @KFitzmaurice Prompt: Defining moment. Describe a defining moment or series of events that has affected your life this year.

Reverb10 Day 26: Soul food
Author: Elise Marie Collins An A-Z Guide to Healing Foods: A Shopper’s Reference @mysticflavor Prompt: Soul food. What did you eat this year that you will never forget? What went into your mouth & touched your soul? This year, I got to revisit my last meal—as in, the meal I would eat if it was the last meal I was going to get on Earth. Sadly for me, I have to go 12 hours to get...
The Doctor vs. the Computer - NYTimes.com →
Almost every doctor I see has now switched (or is switching) to computer charting. And while it is great for some things—like having all my providers at Children’s able to access my med list immediately, and make changes, immediately—it can also cause some issues, like the one mentioned above. I know this is the digital age, but there is something to be said for old-school...

This year the vacation was to the Outer Banks (Duck, NC) again, but this time with my mom, dad, and sister—and it was great. We had a fantastic house, and the swimming, food, and weather was...

Author: Leoni Allan 2011 Creating Your Goddess Year @GoddessLeoni Prompt: Healing. What healed you this year? Was it sudden, or a drip-by-drip evolution? How would you like to be healed in 2011? Realizing that complete trust in God is the only way to go is what really healed me this year. Not that I really needed healing in a traditional sense. I’ve always sort of known this idea, but...

Author: Kaileen Elise kaileenelise.com @kaileenelise Prompt: Try. What do you want to try next year? Is there something you wanted to try in 2010? What happened when you did / didn’t go for it? I think next year I want to finish at least one more story, no matter how long it is! I also want to audition for more productions, of varying types, and maybe even take some acting classes to ...

Popcorn: Black Swan
If a movie is really good, I usually need time to recover from it, or digest it. Such was the case with Black Swan. The last time I left a theater feeling like this, I’d just seen The Hours. If you’ve been following me, I’ve been really intrigued/excited about this movie for awhile. I love ballet, and the premise—how far one will go to create great art—intrigued...

Culture Cat: BalletMet's The Nutcracker
As a rule, I don’t see The Nutcracker every year, since I am usually very busy in the Christmas season, but with the lure of new scenery and costumes for Act I, plus live music from the Columbus Symphony Orchestra in the pit, how could I say no? This very-well attended performance was almost flawless, and the revamped Act I was particularly enjoyable. Jimmy Orrante did a fine job as Herr...
It's Jane's birthday!!
And in her honor, here are some ideas: Read: Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park (or my thesis on said novel!), Emma, Persuasion, Northanger Abbey or the unfinished novels and juvenalia.
