On What If Gwyneth Paltrow Is Merely a Mirror of Our Own Obnoxiousness?

@Alli525 For me it's the queso in a jar.

I will eat an entire jar of queso in a jar.

On What If Gwyneth Paltrow Is Merely a Mirror of Our Own Obnoxiousness?

"The maple syrup adds another layer of autumnal yum" is 100% something my wonderful, frequently-out-of-touch-with-reality college roommate would write on her food blog and we would make fun of her for and she'd roll her eyes and go "Ugh, I know, I'm so embarrassing."

@titsgrande That's crazy that you know her! And Dr. Oz capitalized on the accident like the total douche he is!

On What If Gwyneth Paltrow Is Merely a Mirror of Our Own Obnoxiousness?

@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) Yeah. I actually drank a ton of Coke as a kid because my mom used Diet Coke as a substitute when she quit smoking, and I was the weird kid who'd go to dinner at other people's houses and ask for a soda and be totally confused when the mom would be pissed at me and answer "We only have water and milk with our dinner." That said, I wasn't allowed to have things like sugary breakfast cereal, Skippy peanut butter, marshmallow fluff, Chewy granola bars ('they're not granola! they're full of crap!") and I was often force-fed salmon and tofu stir fry. Looking back, even though my mom's opinions were ill-informed and skewed, I would totally enforce some restraint and attempt to shove healthy shit down my kids' throats too.

On Remembering Lilith: Fiona Apple

I was too young in the 90's (born in 89) to love Fiona. Which is weird, because I had an Alanis obsession. It was really more that my dad never bought Fiona Apple CD's, so I didn't listen to and memorize them in the car, or carry it into my teen years on my own.

That said, I'm only starting to go back and love her now, and it's an interesting backwards journey, that makes me wish I had done it earlier, but also is fully aware that I wouldn't have been able to handle her, so really it just makes me wish I was older when the 90's were around, cause although it was an amazing time to have a childhood, it would have been sweet for the next decade as well.

On Let's Revisit All of Now That's What I Call Music! Vol. 1

@Madeline Shoes Distinct memories of playing it on repeat in my boom box, in my parents' basement, where my friend and I painted designs on $2 magnetic locker mirrors to sell to people for $4.

On Deadly Combinations of Male Fashion and Behavior

My boyfriend has the bun and the flat brims and says "It's all good" to strangers that he interacts with when he doesn't know them very well.

I take great joy in pointing out how bad he looks. I like that it doesn't change the ugly.
