On Ask an Archivist

@theharpoon This is basically just reaffirming my dislike of Jenkinson! Don't be so narrow-minded, dude, in your choices of frozen dairy treats OR what is and isn't archival.

On Really Good Books About Fake Murder

@yeah-elle: Yesss to "The Westing Game"! (AND to a crush on Theo and a desire to be Turtle!) I read "The Tattooed Potato and Other Clues" by Raskin first, which is less incredible, but still pretty good. Or it was when I was 9. I remember a lot of art history jokes that I did not understand, but I liked it nonetheless.

On Really Good Books About Fake Murder

I saw Louise Penny do a reading last spring and spent the summer devouring her books! They're more along the Agatha Christie line, as they're nearly all set within a small community with a usual set of characters and are definitely low on gore, but they're fantastic. Her books take place in a village in the Eastern Townships in Quebec, and they really are just delightful. I recommend starting with Still Life, the first in the series.

@Jolie Kerr--I made crack brownies for a party on the weekend and LET ME TELL YOU your prediction of my friends' responses was right on the money. Horrifying and yet a little gratifying?

On How Do You Know When It's Time to Move?

So what this is saying is that if I move to Madison, I will, as fresh meat (or some less appalling term), immediately get laid constantly?

This is not making my struggle to not move to Madison any easier.
