On How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love My Second Wedding

Rachel, I loved this! Love, relationships, and marriage aren't "one-size-fits-all" enterprises. Good on you for following your own path. As I get older I find the feeling of making "selfish" decisions has become addictive, because it's empowering. When all others raise their eyebrows at me, that's when I know I've done something worth doing. (Also: BUFFY!!!!)

On The Best (and Worst and Last) Time I Went To a Sorority Party

Holy shit I needed this today! Funniest thing I've read in awhile. I maybe related a little too much.

On False Dichotomy vs Who Cares

Giiiiiiirl. THANK YOU. As an older person pursuing their BA in Creative Writing in NYC and constantly fretting over what my future holds - why does it have to be one or the other? Why must we categorize and rank and pick over everything until it means nothing anymore? The worst part about this stuff is that it's insidious. It gets in my head and makes me doubt my choices and chances. But leave it to Jia's "built-in, shock-proof bullshit detector" to set me straight. (Sorry that was Hemingway - ewwww.)

@Mandolin Right? I thought it was the same piece at first. Kind of odd...

On Ask a Glutton: I Need to Trick Everyone Into Thinking I'm an Adult This Thanksgiving

We're going out to a restaurant for Thanksgiving this year, but I'm sort of sad not to be making my favorite cranberry sauce recipe. It's from an ancient issue of Sunset Magazine, and has Earl Grey tea in it! Maybe I'll make it next weekend... it's so, so good.

On "The truth is, the ten or twenty minutes I was somebody’s mother were black magic": Ariel Levy's "Thanksgiving in Mongolia"

@TheBelleWitch Juniper! I read that entire series at work one day and was just weeping at my desk. It is masterfully written.

@supernintendochalmers I wish there was more info on where to catch the show, too. I really want to see it, but internet searches are coming up short. Emma! Jia! Help!
