On "Cheap Sunglasses, Expensive Lingerie"

@bitzyboozer I have been biased against expensive lipstick ever since I got a free sample of some higher-end stuff at Sephora and it was the exact color of my actual lips. Like it could have been invisible. The no-makup makeup look? I was sort of flattered my actual lip color is apparently nice enough to make into a lipstick but also felt weirdly ripped off by a free sample. I got all excited for nice lipstick that you can't even tell I'm wearing!

On "Cheap Sunglasses, Expensive Lingerie"

@Katie M. Cheap sunglasses are truly one of the only reasons I've considered contacts.

@moldy goldie But dogs are colorblind! They can't match colors either!

(the only opinion my dog has on his collar is "you're putting my collar on! I AM GOING OUTSIDE YAY!!")

On What Should I Name My Plant?

Oh man, I like plants in theory but I am terrible with them. I may have a brown thumb. The best I can do is water other people's plants when they go out of town, and even then I need specific instructions. (But I am really good with cats and dogs? But they tell when they need stuff! Like, I feed my cat breakfast and dinner right on schedule and there are many times in-between where he makes sure I know his fat ass is TOTALLY STARVING.)

In college (when I could not have any pets in the dorm) I had a venus flytrap who lived for about two years. His (her? Idk with plants) name was Audrey. My roommate and I sang "Feed Me Seymour" to Audrey when we got bored, because we were cool like that.

On Hysteria and Teenage Girls

@AllisonWonderland At least when the Stones first started, they also had the androgyny thing going (with hair even longer than the Beatles').

On How We Eat

@Onymous Yeah, exactly. Eggs benedict seems plenty creative to me. I think the only non-creativity in American breakfasts stems from how many of us skip it.

On Annotated Rainbow Brite Fan Fiction

Hey, I also dictated Rainbow Brite fan fiction to my babysitter! I couldn't remember Murky and Lurky's names, so I just called them "the bad guy" and "the other one."

My babysitter was a great editor. She pointed out when I had called both bad guys "the other one." She also didn't say anything like "My Little Ponies are a totally different show!" when I decided they needed to show up. (To younger me, the only thing keeping Starlite from being a pony was that he was too tall and the star was on his forehead, not his butt.)

On Ask Baba Yaga: How Do I Commit to the Life I Have Instead of the Life I Could Have?

It is the same life.
Exactly! You're still you, your past is still there, you're just in a different place (and cut off from the social circle you did have*). It's hard to get better just by running away from your problems.

*I am sure among everyone you've ever known are people who do care about you and like you even with your current problems (they have problems too!). They'd miss you.
