On Read These and Suicide's Note: An Annual

@alliepants Yeah, once I saw the author's name I knew they were about DFW. I was just surprised that I got it before I knew who'd written the poems.

On Friday Bargain Bin: Not a DNC Edition, But...

@frigwiggin George and I are just friends Elaine, like I've told you a million times! Maybe we would talk more if you paid as much attention to me as you do to the menagerie on that scarf!

On Friday Bargain Bin: Not a DNC Edition, But...

@KatnotCat The links to pictures of the weddings that used the cake toppers confirmed that I am not their target consumer.

On Charming Faces of Meth

@Blushingflwr Ugh, this is the reason I hate watching shows or movies that are set in places familiar to me. It's like the writers just pull out a guidebook, select the recognizable names, and use them at random to "add authenticity".

On Charming Faces of Meth

Distance running. Or women's health. Or books. Books in general. Baking.

A crime drama involving a women's health clinic with a protagonist who has crime-related epiphanies while running? Lots of conflict with the police, who are always upset that our plucky heroine is always meddling? She'd half-quote random books to make her points. If she baked for someone, you'd know that character was a suspect.

On Read These and Suicide's Note: An Annual

@Drink All the Coffee Those things all make sense. I think I probably saw "pale" and "king", got the idea of DFW in my head, and then kept thinking of him for the other poems. Plus I've been reading several articles about him lately, what with the bio and the anniversary of his death.

On Love Letters Sent and Responses Received, Without Commentary

@Awesomely Nonfunctional Satan's Gay Army is a multifaceted organization with many branches. The SGA has a place for all types of minions. Like to sprinkle glitter? Lift weights? Embroider throw pillows? Read books? Bake? SGA has a place for you!

On Love Letters Sent and Responses Received, Without Commentary

@Hello Kidney Well, Jesus, obviously. Also, probably J____, who was raised to be a good Christian but is being drawn away from Christ by Satan's gay army.

On Lift Heavy, Eat All the Things

I really love to lift. But I like ultrarunning more. Every time I try to lift heavy, my running winds up suffering. So I lift to run, but I'm always conscious of how my lifting could be different. Sigh, dilemma.
