Regarding a conversation I got into with my department secretary about fried chicken the other day… If we are what we eat, and chickens eat grains and the like, does that mean it is vegan or vegetarian to eat chicken? (Go go transitive property!) Serious philosophy question is serious.

Then pay yo-self some attention. This is Ben. Regardless of what Ben says, the man is a master of culinary kung-fu, and if you don’t particularly care about your caloric intake, this man will lead you to the deepest levels of the tasty tasty rabbit hole. Ben has a new cooking blog up, and I implore you to take a look. Allow me to share with you a story of food, brought to you by Ben. ...
Of all the books I have sitting around my room waiting to be read, a Sanderson, two Gaiman, a Card, and a host of others, which am I most excited about? The two cookbooks I just bought. So, who wants to come by so I can cook for them?

That is the sound of not running. It has been the choice for a very long time A safe choice But nothing ventured is nothing gained Speed matters little when the footing is precarious Answers are seldom simple Words have a way of cutting twice Hurting at those we aim at And hurting us as we say them Honesty is a painful virtue Everyone desires it But when they receive it They spit in its face ...
Haiku for you.
She moves like the wind Spring in all its gloried youth Candied lips caress ~ Fae at the edges Rain collected on the leaf Gone before the light ~ Weep, but love yet lives Summer’s heat kindles passion Setting with the sun

Let us look at an example: “Kickin’ in the front seat, sittin’ in the back seat/Gotta make my mind up, which seat can I take?” In this line, she is obviously hinting at things larger than a simply joy ride with some friends;…

Voice in Writing
As a writer, and as someone who tutored writing for a few years, I have had the opportunity to develop several voices in my own writing, and see the same thing with other writers. I’m not sure if I would call this code switching in writing, or simply a development of writers over time. In my own person writing, I have observed three, maybe four distinct voices in my writing. Simply,...

I go away for the weekend, and I lose followers! Sad day! I guess some people just didn’t like my Philosophy Major Ferret posts, boo hiss. I had some time to do some thinking over the weekend, and I should have a couple posts of the philosophical arm chair nature this week!
