25 Things, Or Why I Rarely Do These Lists

1. From 4th to 8th grade, I immersed myself in books on religion, philosophy, science, psychology, art history, history, sociology, spirituality, mythology, the paranormal, magic, world superstitions, and urban legends along with whatever "age appropriate" fiction I could grab from the Phoenix public libraries, all in a search for answers about the world, myself, and people. In contrast to most of my friends at that time, these books were my "church" since my family is areligious. My grand conclusion, which I rediscovered junior year of high school, is that the world is a strange, sometimes beautiful place.

I Am the News

I "Conquer the Kitchen" with Kim Kotel's Cheesy Chicken.

In the latest installment, "The Thrifty Foodie" reviews Guilin Chinese Restaurant and its vegan and vegetarian-friendly menus. (Mike Christy has a snazzy photo for it!)

I write about philosopher Daniel Dennett's talk about Darwin's "strange inversion of reasoning" and its connection to philosopher Alan Turing's conception of machines.
