On Writer's Block Soup

I just finished making this and am struggling not to burn my mouth on it! I used only 2 quarts of vegetable broth, but that's because I used about twice as much tomato sauce/juice from diced tomatoes/actual almost-burst cherry tomatoes instead. It is really immensely satisfying. Thanks again, Natalie!

On How to Mount a TV When You Have No Boyfriend, No Prospects, and Lack the Shamelessness Required to Ask for Help

1. I wish to live in a place where any purchases at Target, even biggish ones, cover "half a month's rent" because SF rent prices are making me cry and 2. I noticed lots of copy errors! 'Pin, do you need a copy editor? Because I can Be That Person.

On Mark Twain at 16: No Comment

He looks more mature than most of the twentysomething dudes I have dated, some of whom could not yet even grow real beards. What is this sorcery!

On Your Breakfast Has Been Lying to You

@cuminafterall I, too, attempt to structure my meal plan as hobbits do.

On Your Breakfast Has Been Lying to You

@moreadventurous My problem is, maybe since I am vegetarian, even if I eat a super proteiny breakfast--egg or tofu scramble with loads of veggies, say--without toast or something I just get hungry as fuck again in two hours. At least with toast the hunger gap takes around three/three and a half, which is more normal for me.

On Your Breakfast Has Been Lying to You

Whatever, I know that if I personally skip breakfast, I basically turn into a frothed-at-the-mouth, buggy-eyed, hollow-stomached wraith of terror, so I think Imma stick with it.

On Are You Part of the 16% of People Who Can't Look at This Without Screaming?

I have this SO STRONGLY I got freaked out even THINKING about what was under the jump (i clicked straight through the comments). It was such a relief to meet people who shared this, my mother and childhood friends did not understand at all. Lotusboob, as others have said, was probably where it all started, when I saw it way too young.
