Grab Bag: Avocados, Flawless Plans

What could possibly go wrong? This week the vintage romance comic secret boudoir Sequential Crush airs out the 1966 gem “How Long Can I Go on Loving the Man I Hate?” which, in the words of Sequential Crush proprietress Jacque Nodell, is “almost grotesquely rendered” yet “strangely attract[ive].” Spooky!

Elsewhere, the Times has a roundup of tasty-looking vegan recipes, if you’re being vegan-er or vegan-ier-ish this year so far. (And Food52 lists their seven Favorite Avocado Recipes, including something called bangkokamole, which would appear in front of everyone right now if there were such thing as the power to conjure avocado-based dishes at whim; maybe there is a diadem for that.) Also, Food Republic has a nice if sort of accidentally sad gathering of people describing the meals they’d travel for (myself included), and here’s an appealing list of good food in Seattle, if that’s where you live or would want to visit.
