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

Wait can they answer a question that has been haunting me my whole life? WHY DID ALL THE GIRLS CHANGE THEIR LAST NAMES? Was it seriously protocol in the 70s to take your stepdad's last name, even if you were like, a teenager who had already been living with your previous name? Because that is fucked up.

@bluewindgirl Perhaps they'll fly to your nest to ask why you have those berries. Fool proof plan.

The part about treating acne really hit a nerve: I also did the whole two rounds of Accutane, so many topical treatments... What finally sort of turned things around for me is basically what you guys are saying: I realized that if I stopped trying to make my skin look better IMMEDIATELY RIGHT NOW I'LL DO ANYTHING, and started taking care of myself, it made a huge difference. Really practically, this meant that for years I just scrubbed the bejeezus out of my skin before realizing that I needed to, I don't know, not try to daily remove the top three layers of skin. But that's just my specific example; it was about trying to do what's actually healthy and not seeing my face as a battle to be won or lost.

I love how the best pictures they could come up with on the front was some Sara Lee-looking lemon meringue pie, her holding a red pepper in a way that no one has ever cut a red pepper before, and what looks like box pasta with steamed bag veggies dumped over it.

I do this! Endlessly. It doesn't matter how busy or preoccupied I am, I always seem to end up mentally enacting my false future narratives. Lately I have wondered if I will recognize any of them if they were to come true. Guess I am still in denial about them.

@Sa Ra@facebook I know you are spam but I will make an example out of you because YOU SOUND LIKE EVERYONE ELSE IN THE WORLD ("ROLLING STONES WERE THE GREATEST!" "DYLAN WAS THE GREATEST!"), BUT NO, YOU ARE WRONG

YES!!! Thank you for this. I have loved this song for almost 20 years now (since I found it on some mix tape my brother made), and I really think it might be the most irresistibly danceable, best pop song of my life. It was the one song I insisted be played at my wedding. Michael made some magic, didn't he?
