For anyone who doesn't have time to watch the whole thing right now, the quoted part starts about 18 minutes in. Bookmarking to watch the rest later!

On Picture Books for Grownups: A Conversation With the Author of Are You My Boyfriend?

@sophia_236 If it was that easy to find, the publisher should have caught it too. A children's book this popular is bound to be parodied more than once. I think there is room for both books in the universe.

@Dirty Hands I was going to say pretty much the same thing. So good.

On Everybody Is Drunk In Love

This sax cover is fantastic. I want it to be playing in every elevator and grocery store for the rest of my life.

@Miss Maszkerádi This is how I feel about most of your situation: "Before you diagnose yourself with depression or low self esteem, first make sure you are not, in fact, just surrounded by assholes."
It doesn't matter anymore how helpful your therapist was at the beginning - he's obviously not helping you anymore. I suggest telling this story to prospective therapists and judging them based on their reaction, to start.
Can I ask why you don't want to find The One For Forever yet?

@Hellcat Ooh good suggestions. You can make donuts! Chips optional. http://www.howsweeteats.com/2014/02/chocolate-frosted-raised-donuts-with-um-crunchy-kettle-potato-chips/

@Hellcat The login problems certainly aren't helping. I'm still here, sort of. Drinkin' wine and eating donuts while browsing OKCupid. Also the cat is here. What else can I do to complete the single woman stereotype?

@jazzloon I miss it too! And I'm not on Twitter. Sometimes I get my fix by reading open threads on Monday (when I have less work) but it's just not the same. Also, last time I had my period I ate nothing but nachos for the entire weekend and justified it as healthy by adding a whole bell pepper to each batch. Try it!

@jazzloon I think they went to The Toast. I dropped out entirely because it got too spammy here plus I actually have enough work to do on Friday afternoons now.

On Which Spice Girl Were You in Fifth Grade?

I think we were still pretending to be Power Rangers in fifth grade. I was Alpha 5 (the robot). Guess that makes me the manager in Spice Girls universe?
