On Ask a Fancy Person: First Parties, Working for Free, and What to Do When Your Gym Is Crawling with Children

as a cheese seller myself, the "bits" bin is also sometimes where old cheeses go to die. give that shit a good look-over and a strong sniff before purchasing.

On "You can't just give yourself a new face"

like many things, this reminds me of the passage in infinite jest where people start using masks to (essentially) facetime, and then become progressively more terrified of anyone seeing their actual uglier face, and then have to go around wearing those weird masks all the time, and that's sort of the end of facetime.

On The Oprah Cleanse

thank you for your sacrifice, molly. your article is hilarious.

"This feels like something Oprah would actually eat: equal parts abstemiousness (spinach) and luxury (truffle butter). I am googly-eyed with lust.

After the spinach I eat some truffle butter straight from the carton, using a baby spoon, like a monster. I limit myself to 1/6th of the container and am pleased with my sensible portioning (it's a tiny container). Offer some to the cat, but she declines."

On The Best Time I Lubricated My Chicken's Vagina-Butt

oh my god, this has been my life for the past three months as i've been raising baby chicks. i've absolutely looked at that chicken poop website, more than once. except my experience has made me an even more irritatingly vigilant vegetarian, as all my stupid chickens, while stupid, have their own personal interests and personalities, which makes me goddamn furious that anyone could bear to torture them in the myriad ways concocted by factory farms. ANYWAY, this was hilarious!
