On The Best Time I Attended Mass At The Vatican While Drunk

This reminds me very much of the time I went to see da Vinci's Last Supper monstrously hungover and nearly had to throw up while locked in there with my then-boyfriend, now-husband's entire family. Fortunately, like the author here, the airlock opened in time and the fresh air mostly solved the issue.

On Pregnancy, Week by Week

@harebell Woah, friend, I never said my experience was universal. I was just agreeing with several other posters in this thread, who also had similar experiences to mine. I wish the author of this article the best; even if I can't understand her choices or feelings at all I'm not suggesting they're any less valid than mine.

On Pregnancy, Week by Week

@KillaWafers Also pregnant, also not getting the feral feeling. Unless by "feral" she means "pukey."

On Why I Have To Be So "Rude"

@SarahDances Oh god, agreed. I commented on someone's post of it on facebook, "Where's the version where the woman has her own sexual agency instead of being passed from one man to another like chattel?"

On OK, Cupid?

Haters (as my mother would call them) be damned, I'm a believer in OKC. They kept showing and showing me this dude until I was like OK, OKCUPID, I'LL TALK TO HIM, GOD. Four and a half years later we're married, baby on the way. So.

On Food Diaries, Then and Now

You're singing my early-thirties tune here; it is comprised of stomach gurgles as well. If you didn't live in far-away Brooklyn I would suggest we get brunch (eggs optional).

On My Ideal Weddings, By Age

I could never picture my ideal wedding, so I got married at city hall in a fun 50's dress and it turns out that WAS my ideal wedding.

On '90s Screensavers to Soothe Our Monday Brains

@leylusha I literally came here to say this, nearly verbatim. Seriously, 3D pipes were my JAM in college (I am an Old). And 3D text had its moments, when you really wanted to be passive-aggressive towards your roommate, not that *I* ever did such a thing .
