It never would have occurred to me to want to ear an orange peel, but now I really really do.
Also I will take the Lalique brooch. And I wouldn't turn down the eagle bracelet. And I may need to bonsai brooch as well.
"It is how Voldemort would have texted." So very spot on.
Reading Between the Texts is hands down my favorite thing to ever exist on the Internet. Happy birthday, Katie Heaney, and thank you for your texting wisdom which is hilarious and on point as always!
@S. Elizabeth - Glad the comments got more critical. I was baffled by all the earlier 'I relate SO much.' Barely a bone in my body relates.
ALSO, if you're going to waste a lot of cash, don't waste it on tacky shit from Home Goods, Target, and Von Maur!!! FFS! I thought at first, based on the pictures accompanying the article, that she had a vintage furniture / mid-cent mod habit. THAT I could almost understand! LOL!

The country version is perfect. Absolutely perfect.

I am wordless, but I am so glad you posted something. As the stories of those who were killed come out, I am discovering connections to them through friends, and it feels like the one time social media is making us all more, not less human, in grief and disbelief.

Maybe I'm just getting too old to care, but I'm on the side of the fence that feels disheartened because all the news is about Miley's performance, and there's some real shit going on that we should actually care about. For example, there is a former teacher in Montana who got sentenced to 30 days in jail for raping a 14-year-old student, who killed herself after the rapes. His attorney argued jail time was unnecessary because he's been punished enough, because society started treating him badly after learning of his rapist ways. And the judge said the dead girl was partly responsible for the sex because she was "older than her chronological years."
This to me is more important than Miley Cyrus, but alas, here we are.
