How to cook: use one hand to call for takeout, the other to scratch your butt.

To the rescue again

My family saves me again. They give Mormons a pretty damn good name.

Preparation (H)eather

I am the parental equivalent of the black jelly bean.

This. This is why I live here.

The Apricot Apocalypse
