On The Essential Life Lessons of the Dairy Queen Sisterhood

I too was a DQ gal! We only served ice cream, plus, mysteriously, chili dogs. (Whenever someone ordered one of those, I lied and said we were out. Seriously people, Chipotle is next door, go there.) You described the absolute filthiness of your post-shift red polo soooo well (and the adolescent compulsion to eat as much "ice cream" as humanly possible). $5.15 an hour never looked so good.

On Scandal and Grey's Anatomy: Shonda Rhimes' Twisted Sisters

Yes yes YES! I have been a (mildly obsessive) Grey's fan since its very first season. Netflix streaming changed my life; I have seen every season at least twice.

I love the Meredith-and-Derek-balance-parenting-and-high-powered-careers storyline. Grey's has grown up so much in a way that Scandal doesn't seem like it possibly could.

On Wendy Davis's Texas

Loved this! Go Wendy!

Also, small quibble, George H.W. Bush was elected in 1994, not W.

On A Thing You Should Probably Read If You Use the NuvaRing

@harebell Wow, I can't believe your doc was like "it'll be fine!" I have a close friend with Factor V Leiden (homozygous, maybe you have hetero) and when her doc found out she was like STOP THE PILLS THIS VERY INSTANT! But she was diagnosed due to an enormous blood clot, so. Glad you're okay and I'm sorry about your parent!

On DJ Earworm's "United States of Pop" Mix Is Here

I am partial to the 2007 one, perhaps because I graduated high school and started college that year. Nostalgia!
