On Remembering the Early Days of Jezebel with Anna Holmes

@Gobsmacked Yeah, delivering barf bags to fashion editors and calling it a comment on the fashion industry as 'vomit-inducing' isn't being very honest, I don't think. There's a really clear subtext there that was obviously intentional.

On Ridden By the Hag: My Sleep Paralysis Visitors

Ugh I get sleep paralysis all the time! When I was a kid I used to get it like three or four times a week. Now it's more like one night out of every month. If I have one episode in a night though I usually have three or four. And they're definitely triggered by extreme exhaustion or disruption in sleep patterns, for me.

I always keep my eyes squeezed shut but it feels like there's this evil, evil presence in the room. I always think someone is standing by my bed and I often feel the blankets being pulled off my body. UGH usually I can recognize what it is and I just try to relax and wait it out but it's easy to get caught up in the utter terror of not being able to move.

On Dear Office Hottie

But I love those over-priced orange notebooks.

On Grimes' Tour Rider: "If possible, one cute bulldog, french bulldog, pug or pomeranian to visit & hang out"

I feel like I've heard that artists often request at least one totally ridiculous thing because if whoever's putting the show on gets the 12-bowls-of-ONLY-red-smarties right then they probably got all the bigger, more important things right? Has anyone else heard this?

On What Is the Worst Possible Job for You?

@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) There was signal we were supposed to give if we were uncomfortable and we DID have a whole day of training on dealing with rejection! I still only made it through one day actually pushin' charity on people. (Even though it paid really well!)

On What Is the Worst Possible Job for You?

@stuffisthings same with doctors and so forth. If I mess up at work I give someone the wrong coffee; if they mess up they give someone the wrong organ. Things could get messy.

On What Is the Worst Possible Job for You?

@garli I have done way too much of this. The tip is working on your perfect customer service smile and thinking about all the snacks you're going to eat on your break. Or maybe before your break.

On What Is the Worst Possible Job for You?

I worked as one of those horrible charity people who stand in the street with their clipboards outside your favourite coffee shop and are like "do you have a minute for children's rights?"

One day and one day only.

As a fellow whiskey-lover, I adore this article.

On The Middle Part Is Having Its Moment, Again, Somehow

Middle parts are excellent when my hair is perfectly straight and horrific when my hair is curly. Long straight hair parted in the middle is very seventies in a way that I like.
