On A Story About Fancy Toast, Sort Of

I went to Trouble Coffee once with some friends - when I asked if they had any artificial sweetener, the barista gave me attitude about it. When I said I literally cannot have sugar, he suggested I put honey in my coffee. I went down the street to a 7/11, bought some splenda, and I've never been back.

On You Are Entitled to One Hour, Six Minutes, and 48 Seconds of Comfort

@Emby Lies and slander! I gave in to the linen pants trend a few summers back, and spent countless hours trying to get them back to their new and unwrinkled state. Linen - NOT EVEN ONCE.

On The Hoax Exposer

@Mira The funny thing is, I actually have some MCY yarn from before all that went down! Then there was the sock pattern lady who "died" but didn't - I want to say it was Momma Monkey? I knit one of her patterns before the fake death, now I call them my zombie socks.

On "Texts or calls often and promptly"

@fondue with cheddar It is definitely a thing! I sometimes feel bad that my boyfriend is SO EXCITED to see me, and I'm just not an excitable person, really.

On The Period Pie

@I AM DIAPHENA Yup. Good boyfriends may tease you about it, but will be over it quite quickly - I can almost guarantee they've done something more embarrassing in their lives.

On An Interview With Jessica Valenti

@MilesofMountains That wouldn't surprise me at all. A couple of the kids in my group were ADD, and this was back in the late 80's when, to the best of my knowledge, there wasn't much of a support structure in public schools to handle that. They did better under homeschool because their moms could design a program that actually worked for them - which, naturally, being the socialist liberal that I am, I'd love to see happen in regular schooling so mothers don't have to take on that burden. /end vaguely political rant

On An Interview With Jessica Valenti

@Ophelia Yeah, I think what helped for us is we had a hugenormous group of families that got together for activities multiple times a week - so by the time dating became an option, I was just as boy/girl crazy as any other confused bi teen.

On An Interview With Jessica Valenti

@harebell It's a little hard not to take umbrage at this, being a very well socially adjusted homeschooler (or, at least, I like to think so). We have a running joke in homeschool circles about people, who upon learning that we were homeschooled, immediately exclaim quite rudely "But how were you ever socialized?!" - our thought has always been "well, apparently better than you were." Not that we'd ever say that out loud of course. ;)
