On Teeth Dreams

I'm pretty sure I've had each one of these dreams multiple times at some point.

Last year, I had a molar completely split down the middle and be loose in my mouth. The dentist then removed half the tooth while I was fully conscious. I was literally living in a nightmare.

On Pass the Cranberry Chodes: Christmas, According to a December 1951 Copy of Woman's Day

This is perfect, including the alt-text. Well done!

Related - until recently I thought a chode (which I spelled CHOAD, in my head, I guess) was the same thing as the taint.

On A 41-Step Guide to Giving Yourself a Heart Attack

39. Wonder how anyone lives in the country without going insane.

Yes! Rural life is terrifying. There is no one around and YOU CAN SEE FOREVER.

On Scandal vs. Homeland: The Weekly Showdown

@khaleesi Agreed! I think the problem is he spends half the time being sad sack mopey and pathetic and the other half of the time smoldering and sexually agressive. (and, really, almost no time being good at being president)

I am also not proud of falling for it.

@Quinn A@twitter Amen to the constant focus! I thought I was alone in this - I need to be busy or nothing gets done.

On Interview with a Person Whose Mom Came Out of the Closet

@megadith Same! The week after my dad came out to me when I was in middle school, a guy two lockers down from mine wore a "Adam & Eve not Adam & Steve". I was crying about it all morning until a teacher who's classroom was nearby made him turn it inside out or get detention. It was still new to me, and I'm sure if it had been a year later I would have torn him a new one. And now I'm just more likely to ignore it.

I just finished Where'd You Go, Bernadette? It's sweet and funny and about travel.

On Baby Swaddling for Evil and Profit

@area@twitter YES. At a baby shower I recently attended I was the guinea pig for the mom- and dad-to-be to practice their swaddling techniques. It was awesome.

I also love to sleep in the fetal position with my hands and wrists crossed and tucked firmly under my chin, preferably while gripping the blanket. Like a baby vampire.

Now I want a nap.

On Yo, Is This Racist?

@noodge I use "janky" or "jankity" to mean sloppy or crooked, not the same as others here, I see. Interesting.
