On "Comfort IN, dump OUT."

@sophia_h My mum has just been diagnosed with cancer and is exhausted with telling people and the questions that ensue, when she barely knows herself. Currently me and my Dad monitor the phone for her, haha.

Glad to hear you are currently fine, I hope it stays that way :)

On Wikipedia Entries to Read in the Dark

I've read the Dyatlov pass story before, it makes NO SENSE.

On The Hairpin Halloween Advent Calendar: Halloween Confessions

Rebecca Jayne Stokes, I cried laughing at that story, thank you.

When I was 12 I got invited to a Halloween party, told it was fancy dress and it WASN'T. As my mum dropped me off I asked a girl why she wasn't in fancy dress, the response I got was "because there are going to be hot boys". I hid in the toilet with my best friend and the two most popular girls from school, who had come dressed as witches from The Craft, until the hostess escorted us out of the toilet and leant us some clothes.

On Christina Aguilera, "Your Body"

@KanadrAllegria@twitter Not adding anything to the discussion but I'd never seen that Kanye video, and I love the song... just looked the video up and really wish I hadn't. Grim.

On 20 Irrational But Nonetheless Persistent Beauty Fears I’ve Picked Up From My Time as a Female Human Being

I have always parted my hair sideways since a (possibly?) well meaning hairdresser told me a centre part made me look like I had a manly face. I was 18 and impressionable. I'm now 26 and stil hear her words whenever I get a haircut and the stylist asks me where my parting goes,

On Drake-Centric Fantasies While Dying on the Elliptical

Drake instantly became 5000 times more attractive to me when he punched Chris Brown.

On Why Do We Still Live Here, in This Repulsive Town?

I am so late to this but after my first break up it was about six months Before I could listen toIf Winter Ends by Bright Eyes without crying.

And I fell for the promise of a life with a purpose
But I know that that is impossible now
And so I drink to stay warm
And to kill selected memories
Because I just can’t think anymore about that or about her tonight
I give myself three days to feel better
Or I swear I'll drive right off a fucking cliff
Because if I can’t learn to make myself feel better
Then how can I expect anyone else to give a shit?

@DH@twitter Just thinking about "it's too late" has brought me up in goosebumps.

On Holiday Gift Guide for Me, 1997 (Age 10)

@redheadedandcrazy By the end of it all I had over 100. I used to get my mum to buy me "rare" ones for my birthday. It makes me wince when I think about how much I spent on them. I still remember my horror upon realising I'd removed the tag from Patty the Platypus.

On The Best Time I Ate So Many Cookies I Went to the Hospital

This is barely related but once on a date I ate so much I threw up.

I am enough of a liability without drugs.
