I’ve found that falling asleep at 9 p.m. in front of Law & Order reruns can leave you feeling refreshed the next day.

Have you tried shaved parmesan instead of shredded? It’s easier to pick up with your fingers and eat straight from the container.

When my friends and I get together at restaurants we like to order a bunch of different appetizers and share them.

Pooping can be so great. You can usually achieve this by exercising and eating a lot of vegetables, but when in doubt, try a cigarette, a cup of coffee and thinking about something that makes you anxious.

Dumping out your purse and throwing away the used kleenexes and crumpled up receipts is a great way to “spring clean.”

Putting nuts on salads is a nice way of making them a little more fancy.

When you go on vacation, sometimes the hotel will give you a little tube of toothpaste if you forgot to pack one. If not, maybe there is a CVS nearby.

Dark chocolate is good but milk chocolate is also good.

If you can’t afford to spend the night at an upscale hotel, have a drink there. They usually have free nuts at those bars, so make sure you try to eat enough to compensate for the expensive drink you just ordered.

Sliced cucumbers in ice water! Why don’t I remember to do this more?
