I work in admin. It is extremely glamorous. Sometimes the glamour becomes too much for me, and I have to forcibly drive away from work and visit with the 'little people' in order to re-acclimate myself to the social realities I am surrounded by, yet hid from thanks to the endless glamour I am cloaked in, day and night. I make coffee and do payroll.

On Why Aren't We on OKCupid?

@WaityKatie I think it really depends on who's online, all it takes is one person to get you who you like. I said I didn't want kids (I've since changed my mind, but of my own accord). The kids thing was never an impediment, and probably would have only upset his mother (not my problem).

On Why Aren't We on OKCupid?

I know I have mentioned this before, but I had a lot of luck with OKCupid. I joined on a Monday, and had a date with my now boyfriend of 4 years that Saturday. As others have mentioned, the key is to be honest on your profile. I am a fairly sarcastic person, and balk at profiles asking stupid questions, and have very little pride in my job (soon to be ex-job, thank god!). When I was filling out my profile way back when, I finally stopped pretending to be perky and just made jokes, and if they asked me something I didn't want to answer ("tell us something about you nobody knows" etc.) I just made a bunch of obvious nonsense up. I was frankly amazed that a large percentage of the men that responded had actually freaking read my profile. I hear horror stories about OKCupid, but believe me, it can work, and it brought such a wonderful person into my life...

On Are You Allowed to Smile?

@Heat Signature that is exactly what I love about them. And why I chose my avatar mug shot. The existential fuck you we must occasionally sport to face adult life is strong in these ladies ;).

On The Gift That Keeps on Giving

Mary Wesley is amazing. I am so sad she is not still around writing sexy, remote, vaugely classy british novels (with often terrible titles--'An Imaginative Experience' anyone?) about family issues and romance. 'Part of the Furniture' is the best book ever, and has a wonderful end line ;).

On Are You Allowed to Smile?

@atipofthehat I honestly wish I were her. It is the best crime ever, the best mugshot, and her hair is fabulous.;) Also, it goes without saying that you're awesome, and I'm surprised anyone remembers me, as I comment like once every two weeks.....

This always makes me think of Veronica Mars....

On Really Good Books About the Sea Being Terrible

@lil_bobbytables I logged in just to like your comment. And no, I don't, but my boyfriend and I have a plan for an entire nautical room/bar. We already have a model ship and a big gold plate with a ship on it--sort of like this: http://www.etsy.com/listing/93366112/vintage-embossed-ship-hanging-tin-plate
