Lili has been writing a close-up of "Stuff in Art" series since before The Toast launched, so plagiarism accusations really don't hold here! See her first post from Aug 2011: http://thehairpin.com/2011/08/painful-groins-in-art/
JUST TO BE CLEAR
@AmandaElsewhere Hi! Lili here! This has been a series at The Hairpin since 2011. :)
"We’re just all individual people doing what we want, or at least that’s how it should be. " - THIS. It's really refreshing to hear someone say that. I saw in an interview recently (maybe linked to on THP?) that Mindy Kaling said she was so successful in part because she never had any boyfriends or went to any parties while growing up. Movies/TV NEVER mention that there are people, especially women, who are entirely 'normal' who just didn't happen to date all that much or at all, unless they labeled those women as some kind of outcast or nerd. Can't we just do or not do whatever our life happens to unfold to on whatever timeline it happens and not judge ourselves for it? Whether it's about dating or losing our virginity or getting high for the first time? I mean damn. Anyway, congrats Katie and I will definitely buy your book!
HAIRPIN SUCCESS STORY! like probably else, I discovered Katie on here, and I freaking love everything she writes and cannot wait to buy this. So great to see everything going wonderfully for her.
Also tbh, re: the cover, I was hoping she'd address if her dress and the wallpaper match in real life, and where one can buy both.
B is absolutely correct about dick pics coming from dudes that end everything with haha or lol. Dead. On.
Reading Between the Texts is hands down my favorite thing to ever exist on the Internet. Happy birthday, Katie Heaney, and thank you for your texting wisdom which is hilarious and on point as always!
@Miss Maszkerádi Generally, I agree with you. But there's just something about fruitlessly shaking one's fists at the stars when you've had a bad day - "Damn you, stars! Fucking Mercury."
@KJZ It is entirely possible that your child will be a griffin, if I understand astrology.

“I was never going to be a ‘chick’ you know, doing ‘chick stories.’
This sounds like a quote from those girls that have no female friends because 'girls are too catty.'
