On Go Read Alice: The History of the Diary Novel

Thank you for this. I don't have any well-thought out response, but my heart always leaps whenever anyone wants to talk about Pamela or diary/epistolary novels (which is never in consulting).

On Beauty Q&A: Cheap Creams, Jeans, and Long Hair Dreams

@ElOllie I can't say for sure because I've not worn them recently, but I think there are sometimes slightly larger Lucky jeans in Macy's than might be on the shelf in your local Lucky shop.

On What Not to Wear to Madame Tussauds

Wow! This is exactly how I remember feeling during my trip to the Madame Tussaud's in London. Weirdly nauseated and thrown off by the whole experience, but not able to sit down with my head between my legs. I do have some excellent photos of me and Richard Nixon, though, so that's nice.

On Unsolicited Endorsement: Doodle Dot Com

Less pretty, but when2meet.com is also super helpful and has fewer steps involved. Used it all the time in college.

On Beyoncé Songs Re-Imagined as Undergraduate Theses in Women’s and Gender Studies

These are fantastic. I'm trying to come up with a good one for my favorite piece of Destiny's Child ridiculousness, "Nasty Girl."

On My Case With Accutane

@undercoverhippie I'm a little late to this party, but I started cracking up when I read this comment because my friends and I did the exact same thing! Little "no pregnancy" cardboard ovals for everyone! I'm also a 2-timer (at 12- and 15-years old, way before I was sexually active) and those things were so school girl hilarious.

I'll say that at 26, my skin is basically still entirely clear 11 years after my last round of Accutane. For the breakouts that I do have, I swear by a Clarisonic brush. That thing is amazing. Get thee to a Sephora!
