I walked with the main character from Rachel Hartmann's _Tess of the Road_ and am glad to have done so, even if I was ambivalent or afraid of some of the stops. It was freeing to watch Tess free herself.

@shopbot @phildini We鈥檝e been working on Salt, Fat, Acid and Heat really liking it.

Kill the concept of "RT does not equal endorsement."

Don't share content if you don't endorse it.

Don't spread it. Let it die.

Do not give it a platform.

I'm working on The Great British Bakeoff, and so far I prefer the old hosts and editing decisions to the new ones, but either way it's very relaxing and makes me hungry
