SLEEP CYCLE, SLEEP CYCLE, SLEEP CYCLE. oh my god everyone needs to get sleep cycle it is a) the only app i've ever paid for a.2) it's only 99 cents and b) it has changed my life. I've seriously turned into a sleep cycle evangelist. I once met someone who thought I worked for the company because I rave about it. I can't remember what life was like before sleep cycle. Not only does it wake you up all relaxed-ly, IT GIVES YOU GRAPHS ABOUT YOUR SLEEP AND THEN YOU CAN COMPARE DIFFERENT NIGHTS AND IT'S SO COOL. Seriously I recommend it to everyone including all of the hairpin. Please, get sleep cycle.

By E on What Is Your Personal Garbage Music?

@Faintly Macabre That is a good friend. My boyfriend and I have a biannual conversation that goes something like, "I don't get how you can possibly enjoy this, its like the worst music. Worser than Justin Bieber, because at least Bieber knows he's in it to be a dirty whore, there's something pure about that I can respect. This woman thinks she's art when shes just the worst ever." and then he counters with, "I don't understand why you don't get the most deep soulful beautiful pure example of music and life, its like you are missing part of your soul, maybe you will never understand me." and then I say something along the lines of, "yes I do, you want to bone a ren-faire girl with a harp who has a pretend deep soul. Sorry I like beyonce more." And then he sighs at my hard heart and goes off singing his joanna songs quietly to himself, while weeping, and I stomp off and find a rare fern growing quietly in a grove to crush under my plastic flip flop.

Love this and want to try it. And totally identify with the sentiment that oh, I'd make tons of stuff from scratch if I had the space! Yes, if I had a huge yard and a big fancy kitchen, I'd be growing all my own food, cooking everything from scratch and canning like mad, instead of growing a couple of sad little plants and avoiding "cooking" except for making scrambled eggs, rice, and salad with precooked chicken or fish from the deli case. Yes, definitely...in my mind at least...

I love how she uses African American English influenced pronunciation in her Korean - crossing, for any linguistics nerds out there. There's some fascinating research on it lately. http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.0883-2919.2004.00367.x/abstract

@pennylaner It's Appa-LATCH-un, dammit!

(That's the only shred of regional dialect I really hold on to when I'm outside Tennessee, so it's important to me.)

Great green gobs of greasy, grimy, gopher guts
itty, birdy feet, mutilated monkey meat
-a bunch more gross stuff I can't remember, then ended with-
Eat it ~insert name of your target friend~ it's good for you!

I'm sure the second to last line ended with "poo" to rhyme with "you"

@mlle.gateau "First cheek to cheek, then jaw to jaw, we sipped that ciiiii-der through a straw." "Then all at once, that darn straw slipped, and we were siiiii-pping lip to lip!" "That's how I got, my mother in law, and forty-nine kids to call me 'Ma'" "The moral of the story is, do not sip ciiii-der through a straw" "Sip milk!"

@saritasara My boyfriend does this, and often he'll type a URL into the Google search box.

Using the search button instead of enter drives me crazy, too. The people who complain about how hard computers are to use seem to be the ones who refuse to do things the easy way.
