On An Introductory Journey Through Blake Lively's Lifestyle Website

As Gwyneth once said: What's going on here? I love you. Get it together.

(I do not condone her fat shaming Ross Mathews, but it seems applicable here.)

On In Support of Debra Harrell, Jailed for Letting Her 9-Year-Old Play Unsupervised in the Park

@needsmoresalt Go check out the Free Range Kids website if you want proof that it's not just POC that are having this issue. Our culture surrounding children is changing and it's not necessarily for the better.

On In Support of Debra Harrell, Jailed for Letting Her 9-Year-Old Play Unsupervised in the Park

@largemarge Normally I'd agree with this, but this is happening all too often to a lot of parents of various races. One look at the Free Range Kids website will show you there's a huge culture of fear and helicoptering that we did not have at one time.

On In Support of Debra Harrell, Jailed for Letting Her 9-Year-Old Play Unsupervised in the Park

The park was not that far from the McDs. There is a path leading from the park to the McDonalds and it's only 3/10 of a mile. That is not that far. The long way is by the main roads and the news did not mention this. You can see this if you look at google maps.

On The Best Time I Learned My Last Name Means Blow Job

My grandparents had a (long dead now) next door neighbor named Richard Everhard. And yes, he did go by Dick. He was also a high school teacher. I wish it was a joke. It was not.

On Erica Gets An IV

I have veins that hide and move around. They couldn't give me back my blood after extracting my platelets and I left with bruises and holes in my wrists and my arms. I never sold my blood again.

On Ridden By the Hag: My Sleep Paralysis Visitors

Thank you for this. I have serious issues with sleep paralysis and was diagnosed with apnea. The apnea machine worked for awhile to stop it, but then it came back. I still have it from time to time, but not so much since I started asking the Nightmare People to not come and visit. Also I put an ionizer in my room and I think it's been helping. I had one the other night and I noticed that my ionizer was not on. I've tried so many things and do so many things now, it's a ritual.
What do I see? I see dark things/creatures crouching at the end and sides of my bed. Sometimes they are on top of my computer tower or my bookcase. Sometimes I don't go into paralysis and end up sleepwalking and moving things around trying to get whatever it is that is stalking me.

On Scandals of Classic Hollywood: The Ecstasy of Hedy Lamarr

So, I was watching an old Bogart film and I was taken with the amazing set (the apartment where Bogart's character lives) and the female lead, Gloria Graham. After a little bit of googling I was taken aback by the scandal surrounding this woman. I also hadn't recognized her from Oklahoma! and I've seen that movie at least a dozen times since I was a wee lass. I'd love to see you write about her. She certainly led an interesting life.
