On Smells Like Teen Spirit

Oh my gosh, I remember shopping at the Westwood location when I was a UCLA student. I didn't realize that it was their first US location!

On Two Victors

Molly, this is beautifully written. I'm so sorry for your loss!

On How to Have a Miscarriage

Oh my god. Thank you for sharing this experience. I have not yet had (or tried to have) any children but I saw my mother go through several miscarriages (one of which I was too young to understand)and this made me weep for both her and you.

On Status Update, I'm Sober: Talking to Belle, Recovering Heroin Addict and "Junkie of Instagram"

Also, thank you to Belle for being so open about her struggles as she fights addiction. You're a brave girl and I think talking openly about these issues can really help others as well.

On Status Update, I'm Sober: Talking to Belle, Recovering Heroin Addict and "Junkie of Instagram"

Oxy abuse is a serious issue in this country which is also leading to higher rates of heroin abuse. I have a close family member who died from overdose in 2009 through use of prescription opiates. The site OxyWatchdog is a great resource for those interested in helping change US policy and/or helping their family members who are struggling with opiate addiction.http://oxywatchdog.com/

On Costumes

I love this! You rock that spandex, girl.
I was always freakishly skinny as a kid, no matter how much I ate. So much so that other kids called me (disgustingly) Somalian girl and my own aunt said I looked like an alien. (yes, really) It took me a long time to get over feeling awkward in my skin and to realize that others' opinions about my body have no real bearing on my value as a human.

On Late Show With Not A Man

I vote for Tiny Fey! Or Amy Poehler! Maybe Both of them together?

On The Best (and Worst and Last) Time I Went To a Sorority Party

"A little trumpet de la rumpet" is my new favorite phrase.

I didn't drink until junior year of high school and yet my first drunk experience was strikingly similar (except the apartment was a friend's parents house..they were not thrilled when they came home)

On The Real Fantasy of Downton Abbey

I usually 100% agree with AHP but I think a crucial component here is the fact that, although this show is written in the present, it deals with the issues (and ways of life) in the past. I also don't get the sense from the way the servant characters (and even some of the lady characters) are written that they're all 100% fulfilled - they certainly sometimes long for a life outside the constrictions of society. I guess we'll see what happens in the second half of the season as well... On a lighter note, I 100% agree with @LooseBaggyMonster. Pictures of those two, especially out of costume and character, make me totally SWOON.

On Sweet Dee

My best friend battled (and beat) stage 4 cancer (a really rare form in her limbs) nearly 10 years ago, so DAMN do I know how you feel. Congrats, Dee! I hope you both have a lovely 2014. There's nothing like having that best friend, a true fighter, by your side.
