@The Lady of Shalott This is really how people should pitch bridesmaids' dresses. Not, "Oh, you'll TOTALLY be able to wear this again," which is, always and forever, a bald-faced lie. But instead, "Think how hilarious your child/niece/nephew/next-generation-person-of-choice will look wearing this!" We dressed up in my mom's old bridesmaid dresses ALL THE TIME, and it was awesomely ridiculous.
@missupright OMG PLEASE TALK TO ME ABOUT INFINITE JEST. Tell me your feeeeelings. I reread it every year and always find something new and awesome. I have a color-coded Post-It flag system. I am a geek for that book.
@leon.saintjean I'm pretty sure that's another one of mom's little fibs, like, "I'll sacrifice anything for my children."
However, we all know that wine only turns into alcohol if you let it sit.
@Anji Aw, grandparents! My grandpa calls my grandma Effie, which bears no resemblance whatsoever to her given name. When we ask him why, he alway says, "Effie is the girl I should have married." They've been married for over 60 years; I think he has come to terms. :)
@Katie Scarlett HE WAS LITERALLY THE WORST.
@mabellegueule I have a rebuttal! I used to know a guy who would respond to every use of "literally" with a horrible smug smirk and, "Oh really? You're LITERALLY going to [blah blah]? LITERALLY?" I don't even misuse "literally," so it was always directed at other people, but he was just such an asshole about it that I literally wanted to stab him in the balls every time.
@Alli525 I feel your pain. I had to draw up a spreadsheet (A SPREADSHEET) when I told my parents I wanted to move off campus after my freshman year, even though I WAS PAYING FOR IT. In the meantime, my little brother was knocking up his girlfriend. (Who is now my lovey sister-in-law, and my nephew is amazing, but still...SPREADSHEET.)
@sox The problem is that those women are already victims of nanotechnology. It was probably in the drinking water. Alanis is having a fake-ironic field day.
Ten thousand spoons!
@noReally WAIT WAIT. People DON'T have a ceremonial pyre in the backyard after their breakups? Who are these people, and what do they do when they are drinking away their sadness? Alcohol is an accelerant, it works out perfectly! EVERYTHING IN BALANCE.
