On Famous People It Took Me Way Too Long To Realize Are Not the Same Person

Ralph Fiennes and Liam Neeson. (At least until I saw "Taken" and became obsessed with hating Liam Neeson for putting me through that piece of garbage.)

On I Love His Work

This is amazing.

The first time I saw that scene where Frank is birthed from the couch on It's Always Sunny I think I literally laughed harder than I ever did in my entire life. I couldn't stop re-watching it. What a gift to the world that man is.

Unrelated: I also hate Halloween and hate myself for it. It's reassuring to know i'm not alone.

On This Is Not A Mitford Eulogy

I'd like to belatedly thank the Hairpin/Nicole for introducing me to the Mitfords 3 years ago, and for your continued attention to this important subject.

On My Best Friend's Cancer

This is beautiful, thank you. I'm so sorry for your loss but glad for you that you got to have a friend like this. Not everyone does.

A few years ago my cousin and my best friend were both diagnosed with cancer at around the same time. My best friend lived and my cousin died, so I too know what it's like to be unexpectedly shaken out of your youthful exuberance. I don't often say it to her but I'm thankful everyday that my friend is still here.

On Internet Work and Invisible Labor: Suri's Burn Book and the Celebrity Offspring Economy

Funny, just two seconds before I ran across this article, the television told me that Kevin Jonas' baby's birth was sponsored by Dreft laundry detergent.

On Sestina About Hangovers For a 25-Year-Old From a Person Over 40

My hangovers were SO MUCH WORSE when I was in my teens/20s (as opposed to now, my 30s) because I would drink five times as much, and would drink awful awful things like Zima and Bacardi 151. I don't know anyone my age (who isn't an alcoholic) who should ever be as hungover as a really young person who's an enthusiastic partier/binge drinker.

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

I read about this blot clot issue about a year and a half ago, and freaked out. I literally got up from my desk at work and pulled the thing out. Annnnd... Now I have a five month old baby. True story.
