On "Cheap Sunglasses, Expensive Lingerie"

Ooo, I love this debate, and I LOVE that you treated yo'self to some insanely expensive bras. I normally fall on the side of expensive EVERYTHING, but in practice I suppose I do cut corners:
Cheap jewelry (UNLESS IT'S A GIFT)/expensive sunglasses (you can pry my Tom Fords out of my cold, dead hands)
Cheap soap (you're washing it down the drain)/expensive facials
Cheap panties (they're going to get bloody eventually)/expensive bras (La Perla on sale!)
Cheap tops/expensive jeans
Cheap shampoo & condition/expensive colorist
Cheap blowout/expensive stylist
Cheap tights/expensive shoes

On Face Masks with Absolutely No Placenta Listed in the Ingredients

@thelifestylecreep It is definitely the most racist of skin masks. I just used this for the first time last night and terrified my boyfriend, his roommate, his dog, and also myself when I caught a side-glace of me in the mirror and thought about how quickly I would be demolished if I forgot to peel it off and walked out the house with it on.

Also, I couldn't peel it off! Did I not put on a thick enough layer??

On The Three Best Villains from R.L. Stine's Fear Street

@ilovemycereal I spent a ski weekend in a giant house with one other person earlier this year and being in that house was fucking terrifying thanks to my flashbacks to that book. Is that the one where the killer set up a wire so that someone skiing down got his head cut off? Jesus, how did my parents let me read that!?

On The Three Best Villains from R.L. Stine's Fear Street

@Dove Yesssss I remember that one! I think it was that same book where a cheerleader is possessed and can't stop doing toe touches.

On Reasons Why Everyone is Engaged But Me: A Sampling

"I never understood how people always remembered the date of Cinco de Mayo. Such an obscure holiday, I thought. This went on until two years ago."

It is that sort of charm that would make me want to propose.

Can we have a 'pin open thread about all the ditzy things our brains have conceived?

On Couples Therapy

"I'll thank you not to stare." So great.

Does couples therapy ever not lead to a break-up?

When my ex and I screened a couples therapist, I asked if she ever advised couples to break up. I was just curious, though the ex took offense to the question. The therapist said no, but that she might ask couples to list what they need from a relationship and then ponder if they are getting that from the other person. (I figured that would be the clue that she thought it wouldn't work, though of course, going to a couples therapist in the first place was the first clue.)

Seriously, though, has a couples therapist ever saved your relationship?

Though I often will tuck my tote bag under a corner of my towel and just keep an eye on things whilst cavorting with the dolphins.

On "Manhattan," Cat Power

Oh, Mindy. I bingewatch about once a month, half hatewatching, half hoping the show will get itself together. The opening credits make me regret that decision every episode. The Morgan character (my name!) makes me so uncomfortable and unhappy that I want to stop watching television all together - what, is he supposed to be, like, the kooky Kenneth/Dwight character? IT'S NOT WORKING. But that one genuine laugh makes all the cringes worth it (all the shit Mindy has in her bed - ME TOO, MINDY!!)

@splendorofmorgan ALSO: "Your home or a property matter is likely to go in a direction you don't expect on March 22." Two days later, I was robbed.
