I actually didn't like having Michelle Obama announce Best Picture? Like, I love her and everything, but I just don't think the White House should have anything to do with movies. It was weird and uncomfortable.
@iceberg I love on tumblr how the proper use of capslock when excited is to suddENLY TURN IT ON IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SENTENCE OH MY GOD

I feel bad for the letter writers who's questions were wasted on this particular Dude and Lady. Can they get a redo?
Congrats AHP!!! Also, thank you, Hairpin, for taking care of all my reading needs for the next year or so. I love it!!
@bnna Yessss I feel such a relief every Christmas season. Like, people who celebrate Christmas have to buy an insane amount of presents?? For like, everyone they know?? And also practically kill themselves decorating their house in the hopes of regaining the wonder they felt as a child? It sounds nice but also like a terrible amount of work. I'm perfectly happy getting like one gift and forgetting to light the candles after the first three nights. I'll take Purim instead, thanks.

Charlie has a beard and Marnie is wearing formal shorts. This season can only be better than the last.
My family always had margarine, especially for Shabbat dinners where we couldn't use butter on the challah. Not a consideration for desserts, though - who bakes desserts for every shabbas dinner?? Anyway, my mom says that if a recipe calls for butter, that means it needs butter. Margarine is not a baking substitute.
@muddgirl Really? She literally says, "I realize this is not how it works for everyone, but this is how it worked for me." I think that's enough of a disclaimer.
