On Out With the October, In With the New Susan Miller Forecast

@large__marge I do that every month, and I got it from the Baby-Sitters Club too! I thought it was the regular series, because I only read one or two of the Karen books, but who knows.

I literally have never heard of it outside of the BSC series. So weird that my brain has decided that tiny detail was worth holding onto for 15+ years.

That was an absolutely fantastic read. Thanks.

On Friday Open Thread

@knockout I've had really great luck with thelittlebracompany.com. They only go up to C cups, so all their stuff is suited for smaller-busted ladies in particular. I've only bought push-ups from them, but they rate each according to how much extra oomph they give.

On Friday Open Thread

I'm seeing Fiona Apple tonight!!!! It's a seated show and I'm going alone, which I wouldn't care about except that I'm a little scared I'll end up sobbing on the shoulders of the poor souls seated on either side of me.

On "The sexual narratives we absorb in youth are formidable, formative": What's Your All-Time Most Erotic Book?

@Mrs. Grundy I loved Mists of Avalon but all I really remember is being creeped out by the incest ... I vaguely recall that sex happened in the books, but I have no recollection of finding them interesting or titillating in the slightest.

I guess I was really repressed at 15??

On "The sexual narratives we absorb in youth are formidable, formative": What's Your All-Time Most Erotic Book?

@calamity Also, I read Summer Sisters but have no memory of that pot-smoking scene whatsoever?? Didn't the girls hook up (in whatever sense) with each other when they were like 12 or something, or am I imagining that?

(Now that I think about it more, I may be confusing it with the scene in [OF ALL THINGS] Middlesex, where Callie and her friend pretended to be "mermaids" together when they were kids ...)

On "The sexual narratives we absorb in youth are formidable, formative": What's Your All-Time Most Erotic Book?

Hahaha oh god, my formative years were spent reading Harry Potter fanfiction. Pretty tame stuff (relatively speaking - I was a late bloomer ...), but still. Can I blame all my romantic failings on that now??

I also read the Last Vampire series by Christopher Pike in middle school, but I had to do a lot of googling to remember what they were called, so they obviously didn't have as much of an impact on me ...

On Lesbian Vocabulary, U-Hauls, and the Family That Comes Out Together

Please more Ask A Whoever columns, Hairpin Powers That Be, please!! They're what got me into this site in the first place but they've been SO sparse lately and it really makes me sad. :(

Going to go actually read this now but had to get that out there first.
