On What I've Learned From Three Years Without Shampoo

@Carrie Shuck I do a vinegar rinse about twice a week (which is how I often I wash my hair, with shampoo) and it's lightened my dark brown hair to a reddish-brown that's fine, but it's really basically the sun-in affect for sure.

On Realistic ModCloth Descriptions

@pollypeachum I just laughed out loud at my desk, genuine, full-bellied, LOL style.

On The Pickup Artists of PUAHate

@mollpants Pretty much anyone who refers to themselves as "incel" = terrifying, horrifying views of women.

On Saying No to Juice

@mynamebackwards We (secretly) call choices made under the influence of a fast "juicisions." I hate juicisions.

On Friday Open Thread

@Aspiriationally Natalie There's a ladies'-only spa in my neighborhood that charges $20 for 3 hours of sitting in the sauana/hot tub, and they have a quiet room with little napping nooks and bookshelves of feminist literature where you can stay all day post-heating, if you want, and this is the only way I'm going to get through the goddamn winter. Well, that & visiting the various conservatories around town. Find some place hot and sit there, and find some place green and sit there too, basically, if you can. Maybe it will work?

@Better to Eat You With Hahaha ok, it's SO TRICKY. And we are still airing out the house after my last attempt. I'm about ready to give it all up, but my boyfriend was like, "Well, we've suffered so much with nothing to show for it - we can't give up now." Just so you know what you're getting into.

@Redheads have even more fun I feel like Shasta could give you a run for your money, meth-wise!

@Redheads have even more fun I actually grew up at the top of the Central Valley! So my town mostly swapped the self actualizing hippie speak for prosperity gospel stuff & the energy healings for the faith healings. I cannot say it is preferable! They are kind of the two sides of the same coin, though, aren't they? There are a lots of things I miss about California, though, like warmth & mountains and fresh accessible produce & hot springs.

It's interesting that you'd say that about OK, b/c I recently learned that my area had a bunch of people migrate there during the Depression - enough so that some d the dialect was preserved.

@supernintendochalmers Man, one must be unrelenting! If he's not an actual coworker (this is sounding like one of those shared workspaces?) then one has more leverage, despite the lack of an HR department. Think about dog training, and extinction behavior. It'll get worse before it gets better, probably, but never give in! Just like my border collie eventually learned, you can't get everything you want by jumping around and nipping at people's butts.
