On An Important Update on Frosty, the Tiny Baby Goat with the Tiny Baby Goat Wheelchair

Oh Frostie!!!! He won my heart with the first video. I'm so happy for him that he's doing well. The part about "adventure and fun with his friends" kind of broke my heart in a happy way.

Can I go live on that farm please?

On The Curious Case of Jennifer Weiner

Hmmm. Yeah, I've often bitterly commented on the fact that Nicholas Sparks gets to be shelved in Fiction while every other romance is in ROMANCE. Many of which are far more film-worthy than his sappy tragedies.

On Writing, Depression and Learning How to Handle Attention: A Conversation with Allie Brosh

Thank you so much for this interview. I worried for Allie during the long silence, and now to see her doing well enough to publish and enjoy the success of her book, and to be generally feeling okay, makes me happy. It also gives me hope that I'll be feeling better too.

On Sweet Dee

@Danzig! I also lost my Dee (not so much a drifting apart as a friend breakup) and it's the absolute worst. This story was really sweet. I was also relieved it wasn't a tragic ending.

I am sitting here in my work cubicle trying to suppress my laughter at that last line.

On Friday Open Thread

@nevergiveaninch I am so sorry. I'm still dealing with breaking up with my boyfriend and it hurt like a BITCH when I saw he was back on okcupid. It hurt even worse when he actually started dating people. But I think for only being a few weeks out, you're doing really well. It has been months for me and I'm still not over it. Hang in there... maybe try to start talking to other guys yourself, if you can handle it. Good luck.

@chevyvan I'm sorry you're going through a rough time too. :( Being mad can sometimes be even worse than being sad. Fighting is so emotionally exhausting. I hope you find a way to work things through whether it means you're together or apart. Thanks for the sympathy!

@Maladydee Thank you so much; I really appreciate the advice and sympathy. I did feel better once I started getting out and keeping distracted, though I didn't quite manage to get more social than going to the restaurant across the street with my roommate. Still... it's something. Thanks!
