On The Hairpin Rom Com Club: Notting Hill

I like this movie a lot but I have always had a problem with the "just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her," part. That line does nothing for me. Am I just super unromantic? However, I can't hear the word "indefinitely" without picturing Julia Roberts and her big ol' smile, so I DO have some kind of heart.

On Other People's Kids, Homes

@cosmia Totally. It's not about being a child hater. I am actively trying to conceive a child and I was still appalled recently when friends of my husband's let their kids run all over our house, repeatedly somersault over the back of our sofa and throw Goldfish everywhere.

On The "Prom-posal"

I was getting into my car after school one day and a guy from my homeroom who I had almost never had a conversation with suddenly materialized at the door and asked me. I already had a date. It was awkward and I felt soooo bad but also a little creeped out that he a) knew my car, b) sat around near my car waiting for me to show up.

On Be the Change, Jerks

This takes me back to my college years (2000-2004) when some friends were starting to get cell phones but I was a holdout because I didn't want to pay for one. I had a friend who was constantly late and she was always like, "Well if you had a cell phone I could tell you." And I was like... how about you just keep your word, jackass.

On How to Carry a Knockoff Designer Handbag

@waitwhat You know, I shouldn't have stated this so generically and I don't want to offend anyone. I was thinking very specifically of my old bus line and its riders, the vast majority of whom were clearly broke. I am including myself in this grouping. So all I meant was, for anyone riding my crappy bus line and carrying a huge Louis, that bag is suspect.

On How to Carry a Knockoff Designer Handbag

My favorite is when I see women with massive fake handbags on the city bus. Lady, if that were real you would not be here with us on the 18.

On "Ahhh..."

My favorite use of The Girl from Ipanema is in Finding Nemo, when there's a Muzak version playing in the dentist's waiting room. It is too perfect.

On Nothing Tastes as Good as Not Being Cut Open Feels

@queenieliz Well, the really stupid part was that mine has a safety holder; I think a lot of them do. I just wasn't using it. Because I'm dumb.

On Nothing Tastes as Good as Not Being Cut Open Feels

Last week I shaved off the tip of my ring finger while slicing an eggplant with a mandoline. It hurt sooo much. And I don't even like eggplant.
