On Before Too Long, Everyone You Know Will Be Named Emma

@TheclaAndTheSeals I'm a day too late on this but I want to be Swistle when I grow up. Love her naming advice.

@The Everpresent Wordsnatcher AHHH I just did an involuntary full body cringe at the thought of ripping duct tape off that particular body area. I think I need a less wimpy solution... Perhaps will try bandaids and if they don't work buy those scary stick on cutlet things? Thank you for the suggestions, dudes!

@supernintendochalmers I've never tried it (clearly this is going to be the very best kind of recommendation) but Natalie Dee of comics fame has a line called Super Black lacquers that are very very gorgeous.

Real talk, ladies: I have an event coming up for which I'm wearing a dress that does not permit the wearing of a bra. But I need some kind of nipple coverage. Any recommendations?

@queenofbithynia Logging in to applaud that footnote. Your nonexistent hypothetical children can eat my fridge chocolates anytime, ma'am.

@katiemcgillicuddy I am ridiculously excited for this!

Related: the time I once saw an amazing photo taken in my hometown on facebook, thought it was of the northern lights, flipped out, and called my friend to demand the story, only to be told that the cool waves of green in the picture were due to her broken camera.

@olivebee Have you been asking for, and getting, regular raises during the three years you've been working for this family? It may feel more worth it if you're making a bit more money, and bonus! you wouldn't have to do it as often. If that family balks you could try looking for new clients (Care.com has been good to me, but don't pay them anything--stick with the free profile) and setting your rate higher to start with. Hope this is helpful!
