Yes! I don't call it a microwave, I call it a coffee reheater. I've lived very successfully without one for 8 years, and I've been trying to convince my husband that we don't need one when we move in together next month. His major complaint is about reheating coffee. Thank you for this tip; victory will soon be mine! Mwahahaha!

Just went back and read that entertaining comments section. It's really sad that the comments devolved into name calling, when the original poster was just trying to make people aware of the POTENTIAL legal issue and not actually accusing the women of any crime. Even though the comments section is generally a place to share design ideas, I do appreciate when there's a substantive discussion about a related issue. I just wish it didn't have to be so mean!

Whoa. Crazy, but in a good way. Looks like Strong Bad.

I second Angela!'s recipe. I make what is essentially some sort of chopped salad. Chop up a bunch of kale/arugula/spinach, add some rice/quinoa/bulgur, black beans, and then any combo of chopped veggies and meat, if you feel like it. I always like it better with some cheddar and avocado. I finish it off with some spices and a sweet/spicy vinaigrette. In my opinion, the chopped greens seem to mix better and make it less of a traditional salad. If the grains are cooked ahead of time, this takes all of 15 minutes to make. Lazy+healthy FTW!

TAKE MAPLE SYRUP TO THE DINING HALL. It cures hangovers faster, and will probably help you make some friends. I don't even need to mention that it makes dining hall breakfast a million times tastier.

We're planning our honeymoon in Morocco for next spring, and I'm trying to find information about how to safely (and affordably, if possible) ship purchases back to the US. I've been drooling over Moroccan textiles for several years now, and I really don't think we'll be able to haul very much around with us in our suitcases! Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Oh Jesus Tapdancing Christ. The attacks never seem to end on AT. First of all, one could write a book or a blog about all the details of living in Boston. Of course Tara couldn't include every single neighborhood, square, commute time, and price range. And if she did, people would be critiquing her judgements of number of gunshots/night or commute length from exact point A to exact point B. Why can't we just add constructive comments to continue the discussion of rentals in the Boston area? Also, 'Cantabrigian' is most certainly a term. I lived in the Boston area for only two years and I heard it more than once. Calm down, people, and help improve the conversation!
