By ScienceGeek on Writing, Depression and Learning How to Handle Attention: A Conversation with Allie Brosh
I used Allie's pain chart during childbirth. It worked really well, especially when I made the joyful discovery that I'm really susceptible to the Happy Gas. I'm lying in the bath, sucking down the gas whenever a contraction hits, and when my husband asks what my pain is like, I say (giggling) 'I see Jesus coming for me, but it's okay. Want some of my gas, JC?'. The midwive is very confused, so my husband is all, 'Uh, there's this website called hyperbole and a half, and there's a pain chart on it and..'
'Oh, I remember that one,' says the midwife. 'OK hun, let me know when the bear's mauling you.'
It was a Bonding Moment.

@Better to Eat You With Jesus Christ. Yes, it's crafted. The point of that phrase is to illustrate her state of mind. She's presenting herself as unsanitized and flawed. Ariel Levy knows 'Mongolian AIDS" is a bad thing to think. She knows you know it's a bad thing to think. She does not need to hold your hand and walk you through it.
What packs a bigger punch - "I was worried about getting sick" or "I was so freaked out I let my worst self shine through"? She's being honest.
Bobby Finger, I am eagerly anticipating this for While You Were Sleeping.
These destroyed me. I'm done.
Bless you, Bobby Finger. If you had asked me, I would have said that I wanted Sarah to end up with impossibly beautiful Karl. I always want to end up with impossibly beautiful men, too. But having her do her life the way she wants it, with absolutely no one (brother or lover) to interrupt until she was good and ready. . . so much better.
Besides, what kind of man holds on to the certain knowledge that a woman is crazy about him, and does absolutely nothing--no hangouts, no makeouts, no encouragement--for two years, seven months, three days and, I suppose, an hour and thirty minutes. . . and then springs it all on her in the emotional turmoil of the winter holidays?
Not someone who loves her back, that's for certain.
UGH. So perfect, both of these.
The biggest twist for me is that Rufus is straight! I hope he and Ellen are plushies or something, at least.
To me you are perfect
