I just realized that cast iron is the raw denim of the cookware world.

If you want to gain or lose weight in significant amounts, do yourself a favor and consult a registered dietician. Numerous clinical studies have shown that 3500 calories consumed in excess of calories burned will make you gain a pound. 3500 calories under what's burned will lose a pound. This means that you can calculate your basal metabolism rate (google it) and know roughly how many more calories you need to consume to put on weight. For example, if you do nothing...
There are a lot of recipes where vermouth works, and many more where it does not. Tomato sauces, for example, need a rich red. I like making my pot roasts with red as well. You won't do any harm having a box of wine in the fridge for cooking, as long as you can use the thing up in six weeks.

I'm not gonna fault the guy for being in a relationship and not knowing why it wasn't working, if it wasn't working, if he should end it...
butter butter butter butter butter, it's an egg's best friend. Put in about a half tablespoon of butter in the pan for an omelet, swish around to coat and then make your concoction in there. Use low heat so you don't scorch the eggs. Alton Brown, from Good Eats on Food Network, did an episode on omelets. Google the recipe and technique (good eats fan page has a good writeup of it) or download a Torrent of the show and check it out.
Doing that list is a great way to have your relatives posting your old clothes in the marketplace forum after you die from alcohol poisoning.
Those things are badass. I'm wondering whether to say "ride the snake" or "don't tread on me" but both are just too good to pass up. Is your reluctance borne from the price, the fact that they are slippers or that they have venomous, presumably angry cobras on them? Those slippers are Serious Business. Besides, if they're cool and you like them, wear them. Fashion failures come from trying to please or impress others.

I was about to say "don't watch so much TV" but then my line above would look ridiculous, and I don't feel like deleting it. There are two kinds of list-writing: those motivated by a desire to make lists of every little thing, and those who know that without structuring events, they'd never get done. I'm sure there...
I have little acronyms I have to tell myself sometimes, like GSD (get shit done) to get me through. Carl Jung once said something to the tune that the void is fearful because we know so little about it. Things that bother or trouble us do so because we have not defined them. When we talk about them or confront them, we give architecture to the abyss and greatly reduce the fear of it. To this end, when you make a to-do list, write out everything you think you'll need to...
