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.

35 Great Things About Turning 35

The prime of life starts at 35! It's the best-kept secret from younger people, but your 35th birthday is a major cause for celebration. For mine, I have made my own listicle of 35 reasons why experts agree that 35 is the best age to be:
You get to say, "I'm 35." The number 35 carries so much more gravitas than 30, but you're only a few years older. At 34, I've started fudging my age--by adding a year. People automatically take me seriously, and if they don't, at least they tell me I look young for my age. (Eye roll, hair toss, "whatever.")  35-year-olds DGAF. Inner chill reaches new heights at 35. Despite its #2 status on this list, it's the #1 response I hear about what's best about hitting 35. My gorgeous friend Nerlie was beautiful and resilient and wise beyond her years in high school, but now, at age 35, she gets to fully enjoy being herself on her own terms. She writes,  "I've survived so much that I don't waste time o…

A Bad Romance Starring Till Lindemann, Sophia Thomalla, Gavin Rossdale, Simone Thomalla, Sven Martinek, Andy LaPlegua, and Leila Lowfire

November 2018 Update: Sophia is settled in with Gavin a young soccer player (like mother like daughter) now, I guess, and Till is spending time with 36-year-old (hell yeah, thank you, sir) Ukrainian singer Svetlana Loboda. He is either her latest babydaddy or doing her the favor of bearding as such (not that he's great with beards, but we don't mind--we know how much he loves pregnant and lactating ladies) to help her keep some distance from her crazy ex who cuts his wrists over her. The juice continues...


To misquote Gaga, "I don't speak German, but I can look at foreign tabloids and guess what's going on if you like."


I guess it would be more professional and ladylike for me to be above this sordid celebrity gossip, but I'm not. I'm so not.


So let's see if I've got this straight. From what I gather...


Metalgod Till Lindemann, 54, and model Sophia Thomalla, 27 (upper left) recently exited a five-year, on-off, opennish relationship, which bega…

DEUTSCHLAND Video

I've only been waiting 10 years for this. NO BIG DEAL.

As someone who loves history, science, anthropology, art, and Rammstein...

As a descendant of German-Americans who served in both world wars...

As the wife of a Holocaust survivor's son...

This is epically satisfying.

Using an unfortunately hilarious turn of phrase amounting to a gallows pun, German authorities have "condemned" the video before its release (ironically and hypocritically doing all the work of promoting the video and single in the German mass media) because of a teaser depicting executions in a Nazi concentration camp. I find this unsurprising--the German government often censors and speaks out against Rammstein's work (thus increasing their concert ticket and music sales). But all to the good. It is an unfortunate reality that a full third of Americans today are misinformed or in denial about the Holocaust and that anti-Semitism and right-wing hate groups are on the rise in Germany and elsewhe…
