My new blog name

When I initially named my blog I had trouble coming up with a phrase that characterized me and my thoughts-- hence, the unfamiliar, confusing, and temporary title of "enigmatic variant." I wasn't satisfied, and was slightly perturbed at the homonymity between "variant" and "deviant." Yikes!

This morning, while packing my lunch, I realized that one of the fundamental elements of my existence was staring up at me from the cutting board. Broccoli. It's true. I am something of a broccoli addict. No meal seems complete without the nutrient-packed, true green goodness of a broccoli spear. Which is not to say that I am a nutrition freak, though I do find the subjects of food, diet and health fascinating. I just feel that each time I eat a sprig of broccoli, I may become a slightly better person. Or at least, my colon thinks so.

Therefore, welcome to my improved blog entitled "it's better with broccoli." Because it really is.


  1. I like the new name. Weird and catchy.

  2. I like the new title... and I like broccoli... and I like that you like broccoli... and I like that you like me... and I hope that you'll never have to choose between me and broccoli.

  3. I love the new blog name, it makes me want a more interesting name for my blog.

  4. I can attest to the fact that this girl would drive to the store in the middle of the night if she thought that she were out of broccoli. If ever there were a signature food for Kate, it would be broccoli! We like it around here as well - particularly with cheese on it!
