On Being "The Straight One," The Basics Of Butt Stuff, And Talking To Your Kids

Agreed. I think this is actually my favorite AAQC column yet--but she knocks it out of the park every time.

On On Writing In Books

I am a B. My books are not pristine (I love to eat while I read) but the thought of writing in a book pains me for some reason. I don't mind--sometimes even appreciate!--insightful or clearly thoughtful annotations, but 99 percent of the ones I find in my used books are along the lines of "homosexual innuendo?" and "What about Jesus?!?!"

I have a lovely older hardbound edition of Moby Dick that I just had to stop reading because of all the hamfisted commentary in the margins.

I also really hate it when people highlight/underline entire paragraphs, thus completely missing the point of highlighting/underlining.

Jaya I detest jumpsuits but I will wear one if you promise not to leave us please don't leave us! Unless it's to go write a book or something.

On "Boy, Are You.."

I have a Hotmail account that I use whenever dumb websites demand an email address. I haven't actually looked at it in, like, years.

Most of these ring far too true for my comfort, too. FML.

On A Satisfying End-of-Relationship Goods Exchange In Three Acts

This made me laugh really hard. It might have been tinged with the bitterness of recognition, but it was a good laugh nonetheless.

Good night, Blob!

On When You Put A Stripper Pole In Your House

Once I accidentally caught him watching me with a mixture of pride, adoration and pure lust, and then I attempted to handstand-cartwheel out of an inversion and smashed into a bookcase.

I think if I tried pole dancing there would be a lot of smashing into bookcases. But it still sounds fun! I don't think you have to be good at it; just be you at it, and it will be the greatest.

On Your Liquid Liner Is Crooked, Let Me Fix It For You

@Haley Mlotek Wow, I thought it was like a rule or something that you had to do both! Hmm will try your way.

Smoky eye is some next-level shit though. I don't think I'm ready for that.

On Your Liquid Liner Is Crooked, Let Me Fix It For You

This is great, hooray! But what about the bottom of your eye? You don't put liner or mascara there? Why not?
