Real talk: Ingredients on the side are not the same as ingredients on the food item. There's a psychological difference that impacts the taste. Picky appetizer people ruin meals (and lives).

Like everyone, appearing smart during meetings is my top priority. Sometimes this can be difficult if you start daydreaming about your next vacation, your next nap, or bacon. When this happens, it's good to have some fallback tricks to fall back on.

"Steve Martin live" are three words you stopped seeing together in 1981. A reigning king of comedy for almost four decades, his imprint on the art form has few equals. Regardless of who was on top there was always Steve Martin.

Courtney Garcia

I decided you grow up a little bit each time you learn what it means to lose something you can't get back. Time, of course, is the most significant loss to digest, but it's hard to understand the value of a minute. I only totally get it when I'm on my way to work in the morning.

People have blamed Florida on migration patterns, old people, politics, weather, economics and whatnot. Maybe all of those things have something to do with it, but maybe they don't.

In an effort to better understand the reality of how distant Barbie is from the average woman, I created a parody featuring what her breasts might look like at her current age of 55-years-old. It's a sad, sad truth but as women age, their breasts go south.
