On Your 2012 Baby Name Guide: U.S. Senators Edition

@omgAileen Philander struck me as a pretty straight-laced dude, so hopefully he wasn't also philandering. He put Kenyon on a hill in the middle of nowhere so it would be far away from the city temptations in Worthington (of course, the renowned sinful Ohio city).

On Five Scarring Horror Movies I Watched at Slumber Parties

"my medalllllll" -in creepy child voice. To this day, my mom can force me to leave the room by doing an eerily good imitation.

I definitely picked this movie to show my high school Film Club!

I also was somehow allowed to show Ghost Story for fourth grade sleep over. I only recently realized there is serious nudity in that movie, and the whole plot stems from an awkward ED comment! Way over my 10 year old head!

@gobblegirl @Ophelia

@Roxanne Rholes love it! I don't even have a car, so as a pedestrian I think my body is actually the appropriate place to put it, haha!

@Ophelia if only DC had a stefon to tell me all the parent approved hot spots!!! Probably will just end up at Club Fur without guidance

My parents are visiting my city for the first time since i moved 3 years ago. Trying to decide what to do with them. Thinking of suggesting we all (includes little sister) get matching tattoos. You know those stick figure family configurations that people put on the back windshield of their car? Yea, we'll get those, only on our backs. Family bonding at its best. Orrrrrr, we'll go to the museums I only ever see when tourists are in town, one or the other!

On Ask a Clean Person: Tackling a Major Clean-up, Part One

Oh heyyyy room clone! My sister-roommate is always complaining that she can't borrow my clothes bc while I can find everything in my strategically placed floor piles, she obviously can't. Now I have no excuse but to shape up, thanks Jolie!!! Also suspect sister somehow secretly submitted this on my behalf....she's sneaky like that.

On Scandals of Classic Hollywood: Paul Newman, Decency Manifest

@omgAileen I feel like every day is Newman Day considering how much Newmans Own Salsa I partake in! Also, remember when new Toledo Lounge waiter told me they got rid of the Paul cut out? 1) I demanded to know where it went and 2) it turned out to be a lie and they actually cut him in half to fit above the bar!

On Scandals of Classic Hollywood: Paul Newman, Decency Manifest

Be still, my heart. Those baby blues get me every time. I am one of those Kenyon alums that relish a connection to the man. When I was there, I had a Paul Newman "Read" poster on my wall. He was lounging and reading on a billiards table (dreamy!). My ultimate dream was that he would knock on my door and say that the room had been his when he was there. We would obviously then get married...talk about a meet-cute!

On Acne Makes Us Do Crazy Things

True story: some doctor used x-rays to treat my dad's acne back in the day. Being the kid in the family who really got his skin, I'm at least glad that x-rays are no longer the prescribed acne treatment.
