Suburban Kamikaze
Suburbia, USA
Her address says suburbs, but her shoes scream "get me out of here...".
Interests: The Suburban Kamikaze has a lot of shoes. What of it? We shop at Target, plot world domination. We read a lot of books. We drink a lot of wine. We are not appreciated by our children. We reject suburban culture. We embody suburban culture. We laugh bitterly when we hear the words "suburban culture." Maybe you are one of us...

Let's not lose sight of the fact that by modern culinary standards, not counting the kind of people who make chicken pot pies from scratch, I really did make that chicken pot pie. I think that is the takeout takeaway here. SK

I plan to begin using it immediately. The word, not the little thing, which requires a little more, what is the word? Oh god, I am so tired. I am trying to remember when I washed my hair last. Do we have any olives? Oh yes, Effort. SK

It is a longstanding tradition here at Suburban Kamikaze to begin every Thursday with a confession. Ok, so that's not true. But now that we have, it could be a thing. And we are desperately in need of "a thing"... Continue reading

Yes, but you have better taste in sweaters. And you can't put a price on that, probably. SK

As the creator of a 500 black sweater wardrobe, I am not in a position to play fashion critic. But I can't help but feel that that any wine bottle that goes out wearing one of these "Autumn Wine Sweaters"... Continue reading

Thank goodness. November is looking good. I could probably finish 2 novels in November. Yes, I am liking my chances for November. Wait, did you mean this November? SK

There is nothing quite like a lime to put you in the right frame of mind for the coming of winter. A lime reminds you that no matter how cold and dreary it is wherever you are, in other parts... Continue reading

There must be a better system. Can someone put that on his or her list please? Delegate problem solving.✔ SK

Why must we be in charge of everything? And why, if we're in charge of everything, can't we make it so we're not? SK

Are they ever really all met? I feel like they just start all over again the next day. Not that they aren't adorable. SK

They say the first step is admitting you have a problem. But really, no shit. It must be nice to have the kind of problems that are so subtle that merely acknowledging them counts as actually taking a step. My... Continue reading

I come home from work to discover two hefty jack o' lanterns on the front steps. What's really spooky is that I can't find the splatter of seeds and pumpkin guts anywhere. Ordinarily, it requires very little investigation to reconstruct... Continue reading

A little lost in the books maybe, but still. For the next several weeks I will be working as an unpaid shill for the Hungarian Travel Bureau. SK

Greetings from Budapest! Or, as they say in Hungarian ... something very similar - at least in the Intercontinental Hotel, where they speak mostly English and where I have not had the opportunity to use my six-word Hungarian vocabulary as... Continue reading

It was an unexpected tribute, but what can I say? I have good taste in teen semi-formal wear. Possibly. Please do not hold those yearbook photos against me. It was the 80s. SK

I do remember Elizabitch: One part non-artisanal whisky from my dad's non-artisanal liquor cabinet, one part not-even-remotely-artisanal whisky sour mix from a pouch, shaken inside a lunchbox Thermos. No garnish that I recall. SK

The cinnamon whisky, I have to admit, is kind of nice. It's possible that one of our children - probably one of yours, MKS - may actually have some taste. On the other hand, nothing good can come of watermelon vodka. I am going to encourage them all to drink Cointreau next summer. SK

There is something about back to school that makes even the looming prospect of death by refrigeration seem a small price to pay for the end of summer. As much as we miss the small nation of teenagers who overran... Continue reading
