Rand’s birthday was the Sunday before last, and it passed in our home with nary a cupcake to celebrate. It came, it went, and there was not a crumb of cake, not a spoonful of frosting, no cluster of friends crooning “Happy Birthday” off-key. I consider this an unforgivable oversight on my part. We tried…

It’s Friday, and the sun is finally, mercifully, smiling on my rainy little burg. So forgive me if this week’s round-up lacks a proper intro. I’m distracted by all the sunshine and Vitamin-D-processing that’s going on around me. On to the week that was! ————— Is it okay to start with a little bragging and shameless…

On Instagram @theeverywhereist

  • Couldn't see what the barber was doing, but when he said "You want a design?" I replied, "HELL YES" and this happened. I'm delighted with the results.
  • Happy Halloween from the Joker and Harley Quinn, and to hell with the misogynistic manbabies out there.
  • First photo ever tagged of us on Facebook. Circa 12 years ago. Can we talk about how I've aged like an overripe piece of fruit left in the sun, but @randderuiter has only gotten hotter?
  • I call this look "I just ate a whole bunch of Violet Crumble and now I'm about to fall asleep from the sugar crash."
  • New personal slogan.
  • Do we want to leave Italy? No. Did we eat enough pasta to sustain us until next time? Also no.
  • The sky really is that blue. And the towers really are that slanted. #Bologna
  • Fried anchovies: accomplished.
  • We made this.
  • Everything I am, I owe to pasta. #cibocookingschool #bolognafood #pasta

Buy my book and I promise I'll never ask you for anything again.
