On Happy Birthday to the Moonwalk

Oh, to be a little kid when Michael Jackson was at his (commercial) peak in the 80's... slide-walking backwards on the carpet in the family room in sock feet (and then the bonus of static shocks!), me and my brother having divided a pair of my mom's gloves. I try to act cool, but it's impossible to watch this video without my heart racing a bit.

On Let's Talk About Birth Control

I don't take the placebo pills. I like the little calendar format of the pill pack, but I'm at a stage in my life where the placebos seem condescending, like I might literally forget I'm on the pill if I don't have to swallow one every single day. Not likely.

@writergal85 Same. I have various symptoms if I don't take the pill, including no period and hair where women are not supposed to have hair. (I take aldactone, too, for the hair.)

So glad the hairpin is here to point out the most horrifying things on the internet.

On Weekend Roundup / Open Thread

I once made a really "authentic" chili that was just chillies and chunks of meat. It was like, all meat. It was okay but not a complete meal like chili with beans and some veggies.

Also good in chili: a scoop of cornmeal. Makes things a little thick and pleasantly corny.

I couldn't help but read the final level in Stefon voice...

On Keeping Up Appearances

The photos on this are awesome. I have no love for Aber-postale-isster after hours spent with disappointed pre-teen girls searching desperately to find ANYTHING in XL. And then watching them drop $30 on an almost see-through t-shirt if they did find something. And then laundering the damn things like they were cashmere lest they shrink even a millimeter.

Ugh, I'm such a mom...

On Weekend Roundup / Open Thread

What about when your employer recognizes the work day in terms of locking the doors to the building but not in terms of reducing your workload by one day's worth? When my boss tells me I have the day off I laugh bitterly. Gee thanks...one less day to do my work, sounds super fun.

To be fair, I'm a grad student and don't have a single thing to complain about. But the "day off" thing is really irritating me this year.
