On The Books of Our Childhood Summers

The Jellyfish Season! I was just thinking about the first time I read it sitting next to a lake on vacation the summer I was 10. Fay's life seemed ridiculously glamorous!

On "Motherland," William Nicholson

@AmeliaBadelia SO WEIRD that he's morally opposed to taking money from Lavinia's dead father to save his family from financial ruin but totally cool winking at his father in law about boning Mary.

On "Motherland," William Nicholson

Anyone else squawk loudly when chinless Matthew basically nudge-nudged his new wife's father about having sex for the first time?

OMG, "Big Night" is one of the best movies ever and I'd totally forgotten about it until now. Tucci love.

On Friday Open Thread

@dabbyfanny I just had the four-year anniversary of a similar breakup and "broke my own heart" takes me right back to how I felt in 2008. I am wishing you lots of hugs and bottles of wine.

On Ask an Indelicate Question: How Do You Go, Girl?

@vanillawaif I sometimes go in and turn on the tub to "shave my legs" because I am just that shy about it (also, still have to sit down to do that, cannot do it in the shower--is that normal?). Just in case you want something to throw in between face washings.

On Ask an Indelicate Question: How Do You Go, Girl?

@HeyMatilda Thank you for the pep talk! I think this might be "real adulthood" finally catching up with me.

On Ask an Indelicate Question: How Do You Go, Girl?

I am moving in with my boyfriend this weekend and this exact issue is keeping me up at night. He doesn't care, BUT I DO! I can't make myself not care.
