Steel Water Bottles

Because, of course, it's important to stay hydrated while writing!



As our home detox continues, we are scrapping our plastic water bottles in favor of Nathan stainless steel. Mr. G bought this bottle in four colors so we can sip in style! And our water is not plastic-flavored. Unlike reusable or disposable plastic bottles, steel containers don't leach chemicals into the water. (If you can taste plastic, you're drinking potentially harmful chemicals.) Even better, these Nathan bottles fit in the car cup holder and in a bicycle bottle cage.

  1. Great tip! We use reusuable plastic, but you're right - they do make the water taste funny. I'll be on the lookout for these.

  2. The Obama administration just released a report saying that even tiny amounts of BPA cause cancer, diabetes, and endocrine disruption. And BPA is in SO MANY products in the U.S., inlcuding almost all canned food and cash register receipts. Some other nations, such as Japan, and some American states have banned it, but not all. The FDA refuses to declare BPA unsafe because of corporate lobbying.

    So my little family is just doing what we can, one step at a time. Many plastic bottles now come BPA free, but there are still other chemicals that leach out of the plastic. There are many different brands that sell stainless steel water bottles. We picked the sporty ones because Mr. G works at a bike shop and gets a discount. But they're available all over now. I've noticed pretty ones in bookshops and cafes.

Ich Liebe Rammstein: Till

UPDATE: After purging his sillies on the side project LINDEMANN and participating in another Rammstein documentary video, Till has begun work on a seventh Rammstein album, estimated to be released in 2017. 

October 2017 is the release date of a NatGeo photo book of Till's travels in the Yukon with Joey Kelly: Mein Gehasster Freund Yukon

Yukon Ho!

For fresh squeezed gossip juice, here's a bad (as in so good) romance. Till Lindemann
Till Lindemann is the only living human who could kick Chuck Norris's ass, but he doesn't, because they go on emo hunting trips together. The source of this fact, Urban Dictionary, also provides the following essential details: "Till Lindemann is the anthropomorphic personification of pure masculinity who invented the often-lethal dance move: The Till Hammer..." "He challenges the definition of masculine..." "Every German fertility clinic features a cardboard cutout of Till Lindemann choking a shark with one hand, whils…

Ich Liebe Rammstein: Richard

Richard Z. Kruspe
Richard Zven Kruspe is Rammstein's founding father, lead guitarist, and natural frontman. He's gregarious, well-spoken in both German and English, a professional showman, and an enthusiastic promoter for the band. In German, his name is pronounced "REE-kard," and in Germanglish, "Reeshard," or "Reesh" for short. Richard is sexy, and he knows it. To many Rammstein fans, he is the cuuuuuuute one. His Facebook page would have you believe it.

Legend has it that Richard has a lovechild with lead singer Till Lindeman. The myth is based in complicated facts and figures, including one unconventional love triangle. Circa 1990, Richard and Till were in a band together (along with future Rammstein rhythm guitarist Paul Landers) with the cheeky name First Arsch. Till, the drummer, was a single father of a little girl at the time, the issue of a short-lived, youthful shotgun wedding--to Richard's current girlfriend. When "Mrs. Lindem…

Safe Products for the Uncrunchy Mama

When I got pregnant, I became ultra-paranoid about toxins. (Haven't you heard? Pregnancy is the best time ever to become a paranoid schizophrenic!) At first I was drawn to everything "crunchy," from home organic gardening to no-poo hair care. I actually loved gardening and no-'poo, but they are not as simple or easy as you might be led to believe. Then I realized that all that crunches is not wholesome (there is just as much consumer-swindling, hazardous and unscientific BS in the "crunchy" sphere as in mainstream marketing toward women) and besides, I was too tired to make all my own soaps and cosmetics. And I didn't want to smell like patchouli and vinegar every day, much as I do love those two things. And I like my hair and skin and nails smooth, totally unlike my nut butter.

Fortunately, I found three great brands that offered everything I wanted: convenience, quality, reasonable price, and safety for me and my unborn child. Their products are luxu…
