That monkey chandelier is HORRIBLE. I'll never be happy until I have it. And "kitsch" isn't even my aesthetic!
@beetnemesis "That said, I totally looked at them anyway, because... Internet." Wow, I think you may have just out-douched all the apologists you condemned a sentence ago.
As for me, these days, I read only Bustle.
NOBODY HAD BETTER EVER SAY ANYTHING BAD ABOUT BREAKFAST.

I love this. Fuck that guy.
So, Hairpin. About 100 days ago, I donated some stem cells to my dad to combat his stage-4 lymphoma. Since then, we've just been waiting to see how things would go. Well, the 100 Day Later scans show no evidence of cancer in his marrow, nor in the rest of his body.
My dad is coming home cancer free.
@Scandyhoovian WHY DID I READ THAT WHYYYY now I need to go read something that will quell this anger.
@fondue with cheddar Can we do Real Life Etiquette? Is Etiquette a word we even NEED anymore? I don't know! I volunteer to write it- I am pretty good at it, I once talked my mom down from a tantrum that a friend's mom (MOM!!!) was hosting her babyshower! Instead of a close family friend! THE SHOCK!
Bring back Friday Bargain Bin. :-D
I hate young children and all but I really feel that if you must have child houseguests as an unchilded person, these are the kind you want to have. They leave and you get to turn to your husband and say, thank god we don't have any of these little bastards, right? and then you feel really good about looking at your life and looking at your choices.
I'll talk to anybody regardless of age, I do not discriminate, but you know that particular quality of silence you get when you ask someone what good books they've been reading, and they're all like, "none as yet, I am a toddler"? Awkward and, I think, frankly rude. there is a time and place for polite social lies. please, people, teach your infant to scan the NYTRB or something so that they can at least recycle other people's literary opinions at cocktail parties, because I cannot carry this whole conversation all by myself, ok? ok???
