On Realistic ModCloth Descriptions

Haha my friend actually works for Modcloth and writes these descriptions! She usually tries to sneak in references to her favorite movies and TV shows.

On Friday Open Thread

@celeec4@twitter I literally just got Lasik last week! It was kind of uncomfortable during the actual procedure (make sure you get a script for valium and also don't be afraid to ask for more numbing drops during the procedure) but I was totally fine after a nap. Also, now I have 20/15 vision and the detail is ASTOUNDING.

On Vampire Weekend, 'Modern Vampires of the City'

@Lisa Frank I was particularly inspired by this tweet from last August: "back 2 school advice: DUNK DURING UR FIRST GYM CLASS. IT WILL BE HARD & U MAY HAVE 2 JUMP HIGHER THAN EVER B4 BUT THE RESPECT WILL BE HUGE"

Also: "i once untangled the necklaces (mostly chanel) of a very powerful women...it was a very...powerful experience"

He's better than Kanye.

Doesn't she kind of look like Jenna Maroney from the profile shot? What a voice, though!

On Baby Steps (and Shots)

@TheLetterL Well, yeah, looking critically at scientific studies is kind of her point, especially with regards to Andrew Wakefield's fraudulent study.

On The 23 Fold Path to Successfully Watching Kevin Ware Break His Leg

@allofthewine I know, I'm just saying that in terms of recovery, a broken bone is a lot better than a torn ligament. It'll take a few months, but it was a clean break, and there's no indication that he won't ever be able to walk again, or anything like that. And if Michael Bush was able to play, why not Kevin Ware? He's only a sophomore, so he has plenty of recovery time and can still be eligible. But of course we have no way of knowing if he'll even want to keep playing, or how he'll feel mentally. I just don't think it's a lost cause.

On The 23 Fold Path to Successfully Watching Kevin Ware Break His Leg

@allofthewine Not necessarily. Michael Bush, a running back at Louisville, had the same kind of injury and he's had a successful career with the Bears.

@hReginal T. Squirge I spent way too long trying to figure this out. "Nicole-y? Is that a name?"
