Perfection vs. Sanity

WYV4Qh

The majority of the content we put out into the world is joyful, silly, and literally coated with sugar. However, I’m in charge of operations here at Liddabit, which is the unsexy business of logistics and making sure ish gets done.

Autumnal Horrorshow: the triumphant (?) return of Tasting One for the Team

SECRET

Ah, autumn. Time of crisp, gorgeous weather; juicy, flavorful apples at the greenmarket; greatly increased frequency of Mr. Autumn Man sightings; and, of course, a grotesque cavalcade of “seasonally”-flavored treats available at a drugstore/coffee shop/bodega near you.

RootBeerCookiepkg

One thing you should know about me is that I have a soft spot in my heart for terrible junk food. I don’t buy that much junk food as a rule (that ish is expensive!), but I always take note when I see or hear about new, weird flavors of candy or chips.
