In Which Jenn Makes the Cheater’s Grilled Cheese

I do not pretend this is a great idea. I do pretend that it’s a fast and flexible idea. I give you: The Cheater’s Grilled Cheese. You cheat because you don’t use a pan or grill or anything like that. Yes, you lose out on the buttery goodness of the standard recipe, but you gain the following things: No butter or oil – fewer calories! No cleanup to speak of afterward Fewer supplies needed Super speedy – great for when sick or, shall we say, inebriated Safe – no hot pans or stovetops and no flipping No stovetop? No...

The Fairest Week In Review: 2/25

JENN: Last week we speculated that not running this week might be a thing. Did you? MOON: I did run, but very little. JENN: I did intervals. Slow, terrible intervals. MOON: I am actually in a music slump. JENN: Oh, that invariably sucks. MOON: If I’m not excited about my music then running more than 3 miles becomes dumb. JENN: Agreed! MOON: I had a nice run outside today! The weather was beautiful. When I went it was barely 50 degrees, but I decided to enjoy it as much as I could. JENN: Awesome! MOON: My lungs were ice,...

In Which Moon Has A Brilliant Idea

JENN: Well, this was your brainchild. Would you like to explain our new project? MOON: Okay. We were in a Disney park (Disneyland) for the billionth time and I realized that most of my photos of Jenn are her… in front of Disney property. JENN: Where I belong. MOON: And EVERYONE blogs these days… Soooooo, a Tumblr! jenninfrontofdisneythings.tumblr.com. JENN: Entitled “Jenn In Front of Disney Things.” Featuring Jenn in front of Disney things. As the artist behind this innovative new media installation, what do you hope your work will say to the masses? MOON: Jenn effing loves Walt Disney World? Jenn: A Study Of Identity and...

In Which Jenn Convinces the Business World of Her Disney Cred

Fact: I have been known to bring up Disney park customer service practices and enhancement programs in brainstorming sessions at work. They tend to go over like GANGBUSTERS. Seriously. You should try it. Before Moon and I left for Disneyland, the CEO of the organization where I work jokingly told me that he’d pay for my food expenses if I brought back 25 business ideas from Disneyland. I knew he didn’t mean it, but just the same: CHALLENGE ACCEPTED. Which is how I came to send the CEO an email last week, encompassing everything from name tag formatting to...

The Fairest Week In Review: 2/18

JENN: Ready to do some blogging? MOON: Yep! JENN: So how was your week? MOON: I didn’t quite make it to any new running horizons, but I did run most days!I don’t know about you, but for me winter is rouuuuugh. All I want to do is eat pretzels and hide under blankets. JENN: Agreed.My runs the last week have been pretty terrible. I’m almost considering taking a week off from running. MOON: HMMM! Maybe we should/We can ironically blog about NOT running next week. JENN: I’ve been sluggish and incompetent and I wonder if I need legitimate recharging.But then I worry that I’m just...

The Fairest Trip Report of All: Food Reviews

Hi guys! Tragically, here is the final regular installment of our trip report, highlighting our time in the Disneyland Resort. Hope you enjoy! To read all the posts in this report, click here.  JENN: And now we come to our final moment of nostalgia: food review from our Disneyland trip. Let’s start in Downtown Disney with La Brea Bakery, where we got grilled vegetable sandwiches. As a vegetable expert, what were your thoughts? I know you felt there wasn’t enough ketchup. MOON: Hmm. Vegetable sandwiches are always so uniform. I feel the approach to a vegetarian sandwich is “just take...

An Open Letter to Pace Charming

Dear Pace Charming, I alluded to this in our Tinker Bell Half Marathon recap, but I wanted to tell you formally: you saved me. When I first saw you in corral B, I knew vaguely that you were important, in the universal sense. I knew that I could tell how well I was doing, based on whether you were ahead of me or behind me. I thought your sign was funny, so I took a picture. But I had no idea how vital you would be for my time. I pulled ahead of you at the start of the...

The Fairest Week In Review: 2/11

Hokay. So. Here’s the earth. No, wait. That’s not right. Let me start again. Hokay. So. Just Jenn here today again. Moon and I spent the past weekend at a bachelorette party and, while I can very much assure you it was not as raucous as you might be imagining in your head, Moon is still catching up on her sleep. We went go-karting and ice skating and barhopping and that kinda thing takes a lot out of a girl, y’know? But first: bank robbing. (Just kidding; they made us wear those under our helmets at the go-kart place.)...
