On Face Masks with Absolutely No Placenta Listed in the Ingredients

I have sensitive skin but might try the Bosica one anyway. I tend to treat my skin like a mean dad who thinks tough love will fix oversensitivity. And I kinda like how it feels to lose a layer of skin? I know that's horrifying, but it's so smooth!

On What's the Best Time Your Family Has Ever Trolled You?

My brother's the baby of our extended family. We forget to tell him things a lot. He swears he didn't know our aunt was a twin until well into elementary school. He thought he had one very attentive aunt who changed clothes a lot. He found out when he saw them together.

On Signs I Want You To Leave My House After I've Hosted You for Dinner

Passing out drunk on the pile of everyone's coats on your bed works too. Then you're still a good hostess who said goodbye to everyone... because they have to wake you up to get their coat.

On Internet Work and Invisible Labor: An Interview With a Virtual Assistant & Publisher

I remember reading Jennifer Dziura's article about how her assistant was hired because she wrote an awesome email pitching her services and thinking what a badass that woman was. Glad to see her here!

@karenb Ha, same here. The night before my partner and I moved in together I sobbed to my dog that we would always have each other, little buddy. (I'm not great with change.) The first week was terrible, the first month was a little rough, but-- at the risk of sounding completely obnoxious-- it's been 98% bliss ever since.

@Faintly Macabre Three cover letters a day means that he wasn't focusing his efforts enough and was taking a scattershot approach to applications. There's no way in hell there were hundreds of jobs he was qualified for. That's a massive waste of everybody's time, especially his. Fuck that guy.

My way less effort version of this is to use the Sherwin Williams ColorSnap app to take a photo of myself, pick a spot, and find out what paint color I am. Just above my eyebrows is Artistic Taupe, but my rosacea-covered cheeks are Radiant Lilac. :(

@Statham @Cawendaw @paper bag princess

You are all beautiful geniuses. I got the job you helped me write an interview thank you note for last FOT. (That sentence was awkward, but anyway: Job! It's mine! Thanks for your help!)
