Me wearing a color, with writers Tatjana Soli and Jane Smiley
Kudos and adulations to Gray, Kira, and Mir who bravely soldier on with the plating while a certain Elephant Plate and an uncertain blue-pottery-or-possibly-the-paper Plate are SUCKING WIND like demented Hoovers.
We ARE currently crafting a FASHION and MAKEOVER challenge that will [...]
I have made a grave error. Very grave! I have named my BODY FAT after my old fat bitchy cat, Schubert. I am trying to lose one Schubert (about 17 and a half pounds) because that’s what I gained as I lay in the bed, post surgery, eating post surgical mac-n-chee with pounds of post [...]
Hello! We here at Five Full Plates are not dead, we are just terribly busy. Doing… things. And also stuff. You know how it is.

And what a week for an update! Am I the only one hearing the Rocky theme song around [...]

What does it mean to spring clean? SO far, we mostly seem to think it means we have to get shovels and attack our crap-closets. This next week, please choose something horrible in your house and join us [...]
