On Mad Men, Season 7 Premiere: Is This Where the Fire Starts?

@sophi Is it the Jeff Guinn biography of him? I read that a few months ago! It's SO GOOD!

I think if it happened, it wouldn't be the Manson family, but a similar group.

On Mad Men, Season 7 Premiere: Is This Where the Fire Starts?

I really loved this episode. Am I the only one who was getting super cult-y vibes from Margaret? Maybe Scientology? Her "not in any way that you'd understand" line when Roger asked if she'd been going to church made my cult-antenna start spinning around.

ALSO how do we feel about the "Megan being murdered by the Manson family" theory? Her house overlooking the canyon seems like the perfect spot for it.

God I love this show.

On Why I'll Miss Bunheads: Because I'm a Mess, Too

This really resonated with me. I liked Bunheads a lot, but I stopped watching partway through the first season, I think because I went on vacation or something, I don't really remember. I identified pretty strongly with Michelle, as I am also an enormous wreck.

On A Brief History of Polka Dots

I am almost always wearing at LEAST one item of clothing with polka dots on it... mostly because my favorite work pants have them and the purse I use most often has them also. To quote Jess from New Girl (aka my fashion icon), I rock a lot of polka dots. What can I say?

On The 1961 Birth of Negging, as Seen in "Go, Dog. Go!"

@SarahP I am so glad there are other people who's families do this. Every so often when I am at work I will put something on my head and ask people if they like my party hat, and no one ever gets it.

On Win a Jim Behrle Valentine

I sent my friend a picture of my boobs to cheer him up because we were both being sad and mopey about our respective exes all yesterday evening.

On Friday Bargain Bin Presents: Presents

@Hellcat I have a pinterest board just of jewelry for the express purpose of passing along to my hypothetical boyfriend some day. I'm just really picky about it!

On Your Next Billion Dollars

Someone told me once that you could take really cheap vodka, run it through a Brita filter, and it would filter it the same way it does water and make it taste better, but I don't really care enough about vodka to go through that effort.

On 1. They Hit a Bump

@Hammitt This seems like a thing you might know - over the summer, my friend's fiance recommended a non-fiction book to me about gay lumberjacks in Washington, but I can't remember the title, and it seems like googling that would just turn up a bunch of romance novels... which actually doesn't sound like a bad idea, but I still would like to read the serious one! Any thoughts?
