@Lili B. Honestly, I find the concept of royalty so fucking repellent in the year 2013 I can't go anywhere near any of it.

Shocked and amused that article that would start the whole Generation Kill book/miniseries ball (a shining sphere of pure gold, btw) in motion had Clay Aiken on it. Rolling Stone, what is your deal?

I can't believe we're still talking about "hook-up culture." The New York Times looks at young people from such a distance, you feel like everyone there was born middle-aged.

@RNL Yeah I mean my parents were pretty staid, and they remain mystified by the idea of serial monogamy, according to them everyone dated (and slept) around with multiple people at college in the 70s.

@iceberg yeah, but isn't it weird that she stands on her tippy-toes? and that her neck is all weird like that? and that her limbs don't bend?

i grew up in a land where there were no barbies until i was about 10, and i gotta say, i feel all "we played with wooden dolls, and it was better" about it. it isn't EXACTLY that i think barbie instills bad body image to girls, but she's just so... plastic. i picture barbies growing up to be republican senators, and it creeps me out.

Um...i guess you guys all give waaaaay more of a shit about what your beloveds think about the way you live than i do because frankly, if i want to ignore the alarm i do and he can take his tut-tuting to the kitchen where he can eat as much gross cereal as he likes and whine miserably to himself about my crunchy peanut butter. maybe that is just the ambivalence born of a long and vaguely tiresome relationship: we can both still dish the shit but neither of us bother to cop it, which sounds kind of sad but also kind of how it ought to be. his shit is his shit and my shit is my shit and we can choose to enjoy the bits we agree on and ignore the rest.that is all.

On an opposing note to crackers:

25% Crunchy peanut butter. Fuck you I'm the only one in this house that eats peanut butter, when ever I buy creamy to avoid a debate it just fucking sits in the pantry for 6 months untouched mocking me.
