On Interview With an International Adoptee

@yrouttasight you have to tell me the secret of how people born in September 1985 manage to be 26 years old in 2013!

On Minor Tragedies on the Internet: A Yearly Diary

I saw the Bad Boy from 2Gether on my sister's 21st birthday in 2005. We played patty cake and it was the highlight of my year.

On Remembering Lilith: Jewel

@FlufferNutter So glad this is a brain burner for someone else. In fact, the clip inspired me to fill out (and MAIL!) Seventeen's reader's choice survey and write in "Kurt Loder" for every single category. Also, it's fitting that Kurt Loder informed me of Kurt Cobain's death. Circle of Kurts.

On Paying Your Share and When You Can't

Yes, your roommate doesn't "get" that this is what adults do (treat for small purchases). I would just stop treating him to anything, ever. I feel like that's the only way to not feel total resentment (I have a friend like this, too). I really don't understand extremely cheap people, but they exist, and sometimes are worth being friends with despite all that.

On Paying Your Share and When You Can't

Ugh, why is this woman so terrified of her friends? Whenever one of my friends is like "oh, can't do dinner, I'm kind of hard up", I either 1) offer to pay or 2) suggest something less expensive.

Grow a spine, lady!

On Leaving Westboro Baptist: An Interview

Yeah, I'm not huge on forgiveness, either (also not even remotely Christian/religious which may have to do with why that is). I believe that the author is sorry, but that doesn't make her past excusable to me.

On Ten Days Alone In: Shanghai

@FlufferNutter Yes on the chimichanga OR just a bean and cheese burrito from a 24-hour drive-thru. The cheese is nuclear orange, the tortilla and beans are full of lard, and it's the most delicious thing in the world.

On A Conversation About Books and Money

@sheistolerable I don't think her point is that websites should not be profitable. Her point is that she wants to live in a world with brick and mortar bookstores.
