On The Best Time I Took a Rescue Cat to a Pet Psychic

@Mariajoseh Oh my goodness, I am SO LATE to this party but I have to say this: I called a pet psychic after my beloved cat passed a way a few years ago. And the things she told me--about my other cat that I didn't call about, about my family, about my late cat's favorite things…so, I am a believer, at least in the lady I talked to. She was lovely and she made me feel much, much better.

On Spring Fashion Hurdle: The Korean Cockatoo T-Shirt Dress

Maybe just basic skinny jeans and flats? With dangly earrings or lots of bangles or something shiny? Or faux leather leggings!

On Mad Men: “I Know How I Want You to See Me”

@1928786311@twitter I don't think it merely "turned out to be Roger"; I don't believe Don went to that chick's room at all and it was just the way the scene was shot. The whole episode was done in that way.

On Mad Men: “I Know How I Want You to See Me”

@Jeanne-Anne Tye@facebook I'm wondering if maybe Betty's projecting residual Don-related anger at Bobby because Bobby, at Betty's expense (however trivial), went out of his way to make another "woman" comfortable by keeping something from Betty.

On Mad Men: “I Know How I Want You to See Me”

@roseandthen I thought of that when Betty sampled the milk--it was as if she wanted to be noticed as the openminded one in the group.

On Craigslist Behavior

@Hellcat Or more recently, "How to Wear Leather Every Day"--do you know that you can wear a casual leather jacket while doing errands?

On Craigslist Behavior

@commanderbanana Late to this party, but I just felt the urge to add that their fashion articles are lame too! For example, why does anyone at this point need to write a "Spring Must-Haves List" that includes the oh-so-revolutionary items of a casual dress, a T-shirt or two, and ballet flats? Are these not things that most people have by default? Or "How to Wear Over-the-Knee Tights Many Ways" (or something like that): with a short skirt; with a long skirt that has a slit; on top of patterned tights; on top of solid-color tights… sorry, but to me that's really just ONE WAY of wearing over-the-knee tights.

On The 10 Worst Nail Polish Names from Pure Ice

Because of 7 & 9, I now have a Flo Rida song stuck in my head.

On Are You Normcore?

@stonefruit I am with you on the DMs, Mary Janes and otherwise!

I just don't get it. Is this a capital-T Thing or just sort of the "other" (or "all of the above") check-box on the "What's Your Style?" quiz? Is it deliberately wearing all your stuff at once, or just grabbing what you can so that you're decently covered? And if it's specifically '90s stuff, then why is it not just labeled "retro"?

Who decides that someone is wearing Normcore--observers or the wearer? If it's the wearer, then it's kind of the opposite of a conscious decision to not care. I think…? So many questions.

On Friday Open Thread

@meowmischen Talk on the phone while twirling the cord (haha--phone cord!) around your finger with a towel on your head and a facial masque on your skin? Cry at a Lifetime movie while painting your toes?

I should have gotten some donuts.
