I love writing but I'm bad at writing about me.

On Bloodfeast: Scary White People Tacos

Not gonna lie, I have had blood cravings for white people tacos at least once in my life.

ETA: Okay, I probably also crave them every day.

On Ask a (Terrifyingly) Clean Person: Oozing Gourds, Glue Mishaps and Food Coloring Woes

Jolieeeeee, if you're still around these parts, I have a two-fold question:
1- What is the best way to clean a leather purse? No major stains, just a summer (or two) worth of exposure to the elements. I tried to clean it with a slightly damp microfiber cloth and nothing really happened. I did almost remove a bit of colour, which would be bad. It also looks like the colour is visibly faded, but I'm guessing there's nothing to be done about that.
2- Is there any way to prevent these stains? Can I spray a new leather purse with the same kind of stuff you'd use to protect shoes or boots? It's really pretty and I want it to stay pretty.

On Weekend Roundup / Open Thread

This was such a good week at the Hairpin, and such a bad week everywhere else. I'm just going to get a blanket and a pillow and squat here until real life catches up.

On Weekend Roundup / Open Thread

Jazmine, you KNOW you want to come back to Canada. We have Coffee Crisps. And Timbits. I can keep naming snacks, probably.

On 13 SpoOOoky Witchcraft And Magic Museums To Visit


I want to go to all of these, despite my tendency to get scared very easily (oh God, why so many creepy dolls in one room? I'll have nightmares. Heck, I got scared at a Daily Show segment about exorcists that probably wasn't even supposed to be scary but I changed the channel just to be sure.)
Still, tons of great reasons to visit my family in Jersey now! I mean, I want to visit them because I haven't seen them in a while, not because I just really like Thanksgiving and want to go to witchy museums and bookstores.

On "I Want You Back" Is Back

Not commenting because I've had this song on repeat all day, not at all, zero thanks to Jazmine

On "I Want You Back" Is Back

I once saw a man (probably a businessman or lawyer, judging by how he was dressed) in his car, stopped at a red light, just BLASTING "I Want You Back" with all the windows rolled down, and singing along and dancing like nobody's watching.

It was awesome.

On What My Mom Wants Me to Write About

Michelle, I can't believe your mom didn't want to talk to you about the other most important new show of the season: Forever. My mom has decided that she likes Ioan Gruffudd* almost as much as she likes Castle.

*she does not actually know his name, on the show or in real life. She knows Nathan Fillion as Castle, because that is also the name of the show.
