Been reading for quite a while, and finally decided on a name. Little bit geek, part artist, might sing sometimes, love the maths.

On How To Write An Email

@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that)
I find myself not using the comma because I don't want to confuse the people I write to that do not use the comma. Also, I think that in a salutation such as Dear Mary, people don't understand it's letter form for Hi, dear Mary, and not Hi, Mary. Then they carry it into regular writing.

On Some Things I Cannot Unhear

This part stopped me in my tracks as I was reading. "Warped worried brows and young eyes suddenly wiser because holding back tears will age you."
I also wanted to say that with your descriptions I can hear these things playing in my head as I read. Really wonderful writing.

On Women Real Tired of Your Shit in Art

@moe-zee
I for one am really enjoying the new/old direction things have taken. I think that getting the spam-bots a little more under control has helped a little.

On Bloodfeast: Scary White People Tacos

@Anne, @inthepost My step-dad's only contribution to cooking dinner was "Taco Salad" - ground beef browned with onions (and maybe packaged taco seasoning - idk), tossed with chopped iceberg, Doritos, shredded cheddar, and Catalina dressing - it was surprisingly edible. #whitepeopletacoinnovation

On Not That Kind of Death: An Interview With Caitlin Doughty

This is such an important topic.
I would like to be cremated, after a science-y type donation. A viewed cremation sounds like it might be good closure. Maybe inside of a handmaid container of some kind. But first I would like my loved ones to take a piece of hair or blood (or ash) to make some kind of mourning jewelry. Something they would personally like and not feel burdened by. Then they wouldn't feel like they needed to visit anywhere specific.
I also would like some kind of memory celebration afterwards. I want them to have many people's good memories to take with them.

On The Hairpin Halloween Advent Calendar: Halloween Rituals

We have a friend who has a birthday at the end of October and throws a huge Halloween party every year. 'Costumes required' is the best stipulation for a party, and his is no exception.
Then on actual Halloween, we usually take the kid Trick-or-Treating. She is a little old this year though, so she'll probably cave halfway through.

On Quentin Tarantino Explains Things To Me
