On Nuts, Olive Oil, Heart Disease

I pretty much adhere to this, with more nuts in the mix ... But 1 liter of olive oil per week extra? That seems like a lot to me!

On Obsessed, Nervous, or Just Hungry?

I've always bitten my fingernails, when I read - when I'm away on vacation and not reading regularly, they grow out; I've never worried about it or tried to hide it, and no one has ever mentioned my nails to me; I'm not OCD. I heard the interview this morning and can't figure out what the big deal is or why this would ever rise to the level of "pathological" or the DSM. Oh, and the one time I intentionally grew them out, before my sister's wedding so I could get a manicure, I got a fungus from the manicurist that lasted for almost a year. That'll teach me.

On Friday Bargain Bin: What to Do With Your Allowance This Week

Does anyone else just get a blank black page at whitehouseblackmarket? I liked the pants but ain't nothing at the link. I even tried their main page and got the same thing ... utter darkness.

On Beauty Q&A: The Most Beautiful Bright Lipstick in the Land

Lady #2 is not lying. I am a 36B (WITHOUT broad shoulders) and I run into the too-small-in-the-bust problem all the time. I use a teeny tiny safety pin to close the shirt gap.

On Ask a Clean Person: Laundry School Is In Session!

@nyikin I've never sorted clothes. Just throw some vinegar in, set the washer for cold, and let 'er rip. (I do wash towels and sheets separately from clothing, on warm or hot. Towels lint everything.)

On Transitions, Femme Baldness, and "INEXTINGUISHABLE PASSION"

Black and brown are fine together, but even thinking about choosing a mean mom over a loving, supportive girlfriend is not.

On Scandals of Classic Hollywood: Katharine Hepburn's Trousers

"Holiday" is one of the my favourite movies ever. "Bringing Up Baby," on the other hand, is no nowhere on the list.

On Ask a Married Dude: Bob and Eli

@Bittersweet Well, that's what LW said she thought too, except for the "working on" part... But she knew then that she didn't really love Eli (says later, after having baby and running into married-Bob with pregnant wife in grocery store, that she tries " to accept that the guy I've been in love with for four years is married and gone"), and that she was caught in the Bob undertow, so I'm at a loss to understand her decision after the miscarriage. Although she DOES, now that you mention it, seem to specialise in wishful thinking ...
