On Family-Style Restaurants That Appear Only in Dreams

An almond almost came out of my nose, that is how hard I am laughing. Amazing.

On Tagalongs vs. Peanut Butter Patties: The Great Girl Scout Cookie Regional Naming Rift

@Blushingflwr I bought a couple boxes outside BART in the East Bay last week and they were $5, too - but so worth it. Would I pay $6/box? Maaayyyybe. When I buy them through my mom's friends' kids in St. Louis, they are only $3/box!

On My Grandmother's First Shirley Temple Movie

My grandma is also a reddish, curly-haired Shirley! You don't meet many young Shirleys these days.

On Writing, Depression and Learning How to Handle Attention: A Conversation with Allie Brosh

YES! I love Allie and Hyperbole and a Half! I cannot wait to get her book, and would have loved to meet her; she seems great. I missed her on both coasts because I had the misfortune of traveling in the opposite direction of her signings. Booooo. Moar Allie!

On A Wristwatch That Alleviates the Struggle (of Long-Distance Love)

There is a necklace on Modcloth right now that does this for like $25.

I'm EWR, he's SFO, and it's not ideal, but has been working out okay for four months. He's got a flexible work schedule, we facebook message all day/facetime at night, and both have money to spend on plane tickets. There's definitely talk of my finding a job on the left coast, though. It's not fun to spend 90% of the time missing the other person.

On The "Box Girls" at the Standard Hotel

When I first heard about the Standard and these kinds of jobs, I was in college in the midwest and thought, "Holy shit, this would be an amazing way to make money." I was/am not their target applicant, either, but I would absolutely rather have done that and gotten so much reading/homework done, instead of working in the food service industry.

On When Mimi Got Old

This is a great read, and makes me want to call my grandma(s). As an aside: the first line of your bio is also mine, and as a native St. Louisan, I'm proud to have voted for your mom every time I saw her name on a ballot.

On The Sexual History of Jared Sabbagh, Part 1

Wow. It is so fascinating to read about other peoples' introduction to sex and sexuality - this is very different from mine. Can't wait for part 2!
