On Frequently Asked Questions About Tights

@Megano! I know. White tights have been relegated to the realm of little girl fashion. *sigh* I'll just have to dress up as a fairy tale character every few years as an excuse to show of my legs.

On Frequently Asked Questions About Tights

@Megano! I am legitimately saddened by the "no white tights" decree. My scrawny little chicken legs look SO PATHETIC in dark tights. One year as I dressed up as Alice in Wonderland for Halloween and was pretty stoked that I was "allowed" to wear white tights. My calves looked fantastic (for once).

On RIP, Tony Nicklinson

What an incredibly sad story. (Somehow I'm just now hearing about it.) I'm glad that he is at peace now.

On Not a Fever Dream

@KatieBarTheDoor I had forgotten all about this show, but I remembered the theme song (and everything else about it) as soon as I watched the clip above. I also remember the theme song to "Dumbo's Circus". Man, I loved 80s/90s Disney Channel.

On The Newsroom in Verse

God, this show is terrible. Last night's episode featured more word-for-word self-plagiarism. (First heard in Sports Night, "doing a big thing badly".) I even hated Paul Schneider (whom I usually adore).

On The Newsroom: Live

@applestoapples "Is this how Sorkin writes young twenty-ish women?" Yes. Basically, yes. Sometimes even older women.

On The Newsroom: Live

@orangeyouglad At this point I am ONLY watching "True Blood" for Vampire Eric (and occasional bits of brilliance from Lala). Everything else is beyond batshit crazy.

On Ask a Clean Person: 'Pits, Revisited

@Hellcat You're welcome! I usually have a harder time finding Almay, and I think they only make a very few varieties: a few scents of gel-based stick and one roll-on. I've been using Lady Mitchum stuff for awhile now though, and I've had good luck with it.

On Ask a Clean Person: 'Pits, Revisited

@olivebee Have you tried Almay and/or Mitchum antiperspirants? Both cruelty-free (last time I checked). Mitchum even has a crazy strong version that is supposed to last for 36 hours or some nonsense.

On How to Talk to Your Average Four-Year-Old

When I was a teenager, I babysat for a 5-y.o. girl who went through a naked phase. She wanted to be naked all the time. I managed to keep her inside the house, but I could not convince her to keep her clothes on indoors. After awhile I just went with it. But I did make sure to close ALL the blinds, curtains, etc. Did not want neighbors to see me sitting there on the couch while a naked kid cartwheeled through the living room.
