On An Ode to the Diva Cup

@VDRE I was a huge Diva Cup fan before I got my IUD. And I spoke to my GYN and she told me I would be a-ok to use it post-insertion, just take some precautions about suction, etc. I was all ready to have the two of them be friends, but I never got my period again. Apparently, this happens frequently with the Mirena (if you happen to be looking into that over Paraguard). So, it's possible the whole question might be moot? Just something to consider.

On "Do You Know Who You Look Like?"

@hexamaam Whenever anyone has ever told me I looked like someone, it was Ally Sheedy. Brat pack friends?

On Gosh I Hope She's Okay

Important fact learned from the slideshow--there are wine-focused high schools in France! Probably not as exciting in reality, but it kinda makes me wish I could get a do-over and grow up in Chateauneuf-de-Pape...hmmm...

On Friday Bargain Bin: The Leftovers

I got a couple of those totes when they went on sale. I thought it would be a cute/eco-friendly way to wrap holiday gifts.

Now I will proceed to hem and haw over those rain booties....why do they have to be so darn cute?

On Christmas Music From Sufjan Stevens, Tracey Thorn

I like Sufjan's new Xmas album, but I prefer the older compilation since I'm more an Old Sufjan person (is that a thing?). "Did I make you cry..." and "Sister Winter" are two of my favorite Xmas songs, period.

HOWEVER, I went to see him on Friday in Philly and I was so disappointed. It was like the band hadn't practiced at all. It was so bad that there were apologies made and I felt bad for Sufjan (who has such a beautiful voice!) because he seemed disappointed. It was as though the whole kitschy holiday tour thing had seemed like a good idea in his head but wasn't working out in execution. The night was elevated by the group of people standing next to me who all dressed up as Christmas Unicorns and the sing-along that occurred during the encore of "...for the widows of Ypsilanti."

Ok, that was a lot babbling, but I was so excited about this show that I went by myself and then it just turned out to be...so underwhelming.

On Interview With a Virgin: Will

@Ophelia Oh god, I did that too! Because...you know...there's nothing like the wit of a 16-year-old. Yep, definitely needs to be recorded for Posterity.

On Interview With a Virgin: Will

@redheaded&crazie I had very similar experience. And I want to say that I'm totally removed from it now, but sometimes I still can get back into that headspace of feeling unlovable and wanting to crawl back into some place where I am safe and without vulnerabilities. Relationships were so much easier when they consisted mostly of witty AIM conversations...

On Interview With a Virgin: Will

@melis Me too! Many times. My best friend and I have come up with some random scenarios in which we will get married there, possibly beside the California Condors.

On Friday Open Thread < ):^/

@olivebee I was that girl, too! Except for amidst the sniffle and such, I couldn't help thinking...WILL ARNETT, YOU BASTARD!

Obviously, I have the feelings.
