On Fancy Lady Phrases I Want To Be Able To Seriously Say Before I Die

As the lowest person on the totem pole at a both a nonprofit that awards grants and a college that goes through admissions every year, I have said both "Sorry, I was in a committee meeting..." and "This was one of the toughest decisions we had to make in this competition..." with complete sincerity many times, and I am not, nor do I feel, fancy in any way. I'm eating cheese and crackers for lunch, for crying out loud.

On Lagusta Yearwood, The Punk Chocolatier

Wow, this was a great piece. I got totally sucked into her world for a bit and basically, if she doesn't sell the Rock Scramble in the city somewhere, she should, because I would eat that in one second. Namely, this second right now.

On Estate Jewelry: Dead Cromwell Edition

That last necklace! Even though I have nowhere to wear it, I would put it on and parade around my apartment. Same with the sapphire bib necklace. Soooo much pretty. I love this feature!

On Ghosts Of My Youth

This is awesome. I don't have any good ghost stories, which pains me, because I love reading other people's. I grew up kind of a scaredy-cat, but my favorite adult when I was younger was our Catholic-school nun choir director who told us amaaaazingly spooky stories of spirits and the unexplained. My friends loved it - they were very much into witchy and occult things - but I spent half the time intrigued by these things that frightened me, and the other half just plain frightened.

On Smells Like Teen Spirit

I'm not sure if it's good or bad that I had never heard of this company until right this minute.

On Annotated Rainbow Brite Fan Fiction

This is amazing. Whose idea was it to make a book? How do you still have this? So many questions, so much appreciation.

On Dumb

Ooh, this is interesting. Can't wait for future installments. I can't imagine what it would be like to have this kind of condition permanently - I had my tonsils out a couple years ago and just that temporary amount of time being unable to sing, speak, or swallow without off-the-charts pain was more than I could handle. This is such a beautiful method to conveying your experience.
