On Now That I'm Married, I Only Use Crystal

I was embarrassed and appalled at the whole idea of registering, but my mother-in-law pointed out that she would be inviting all her old fogey friends to the wedding (we got married in her home town) and they would just buy us ugly shit we didn't want unless we told them otherwise. So now I am the proud owner of a perfectly nice dinner service that (15 years later) still has the labels on it.

On I Just Wanted to Fly Solo: A Night at the Sugar Ray Festival

@justjoined) It strikes me -- and this is just my opinion here -- that telling someone to "tone down" any aspect of their writing style, to better suit your specific reading style, makes you sound like a bit of a knob. I'm not sure if that's what you were going for, but hey.

On Taylor Swift and The Rolling Stones, "As Tears Go By"

Watching this video, I have discovered I can actually quite enjoy Mick Jagger if I imagine him as a claymation figurine.

On My Brother, My Mother, and a Call Girl

Ah, I have a boy who needs help now, and may need different help in the future (he's young yet), and if I have my shit together even a fraction of this amount I will be so damn happy.

On The Hummuses of Brooklyn

@NotFace Never mind -- I'm going to go peel some chickpeas and do it. Somehow the added frisson of OCD activity makes it seem more fun.

On The Hummuses of Brooklyn

Wait, I need more information re: Sonny & Joe's. Otherwise I might have to open that tin of tahini that's been sat in my pantry for two years at least and make my own damn hummus and I really don't want to do that.
