It's always a unique and wonderful experience to sit down with another family for dinner. It's one of the times where you have to step outside yourself and adjust to someone else's traditions and customs -- and it's always so surprising to see how different they can be! I think that's why I love these portraits so much, and I see how I fit in. My boyfriend and I pull up the previous day's Daily Show at my desk when we eat and laugh and watch and pause and talk and we share a lot of joy. And it is wonderful to see my experiences reflected to some extent in these portraits. No one looks miserable in these photos! Or obese! I don't see how this is comparable to the stereotype of Americans on the sofa eating TV dinners on their TV trays and passively watching shows and not associating with one another like zombies.

Also as a student on a tight budget, this post disappointed me. Overall, I think it comes down to a lack of context and a lack of content. Instead of defending himself in the comments, I'd love to read a post by Mike explaining how he made his college years work, design wise, and what he did to achieve great style on a budget. I've been refinishing my hand-me-downs and trash picks to an overall great success. I'd love to exchange tips and tricks with other students with limited resources. I just wish there could be more of that whenever AT discusses "student style" instead of "look at the pretty pictures."

i second the baking soda suggestion. i use it all the time on the stove top and it works wonders. you just have to work it into a paste and let it sit for a few minutes, then go at it with a scouring pad and it'll be clean in no time! cheap, easy and healthy.
