I'm an actor and I like Nutella and I have a cat. Also, I bake when I'm stressed.
@SmartCookie Can someone teach me to braid?
@dracula's ghost Frankly, at first I thought she was asking what my excuse is for not giving birth to three kids, and I was like, "I went to the grocery store and saw a kid screaming for and about candy, so."
50% singing Wrecking Ball at the top of my lungs bc BF is out of town and I have the house to myself
25% cat snuggles
25% stuffed crust frozen pizza for dinner bc BF is out of town and also YOLO
@Nutellaface According to the episode of Celebrity Wife Swap I watched, Mark McGrath is a helicopter dad.
(I would totally stalk the Gin Blossoms, though.)

Hi all! I've been MIA lately, because...I had a baby! She is clearly Type A, and arrived a month early. We're going to have to work on training her to be fashionably late. She is, of course, perfect :)
whoa, has Manhattan always been shaped like a whale?
When I was a kid someone told me Manhattan was an island and I was so mad that somebody was trying this on me. it was barely above "hey did you know the word 'gullible' isn't in the dictionary" as a prank. I have BEEN to New York before, I explained to them. I went there on the train. We did not stop and get into a boat. can train wheels roll on water? Is the train filled with helium? is it made of magic? How stupid do I look exactly?
anyway when I say I was a kid I mean I was 23 or something, and I still do not believe a city can be an island. what, is it also filled with elves?
@thelibrarianne Hi. Only one of the Hairpin's editors lives in New York (guilty!), and we thought this was a very cool project, no matter where you live.

I spilled a full glass of red wine on my baby's head last night. He's a little purple today. At least I don't have to worry about getting him baptized now (that's how that works, right?)
HOPE YOU HAD A GOOD FIRST WEEK, JIA. Let's Pinup, Michigan!
ETA: I did the opposite of what that article suggested, & started playing Candy Crush today. WHY GOD WHYYYYY.
I really wish I hadn't read this as someone with a similar experience but whose dad was the guy across the hall who didn't make it.
The last sentence of this essay makes me a bitter and angry and ugly person.
