By Emily May@facebook on Going Blonde

This may sound totally bizarre, but my name is also Emily May, and I'm ALSO a bottle blonde! I started a nonprofit and my hair went grey and I rebelled. It wouldn't have lasted so long except there's no dark hair to return to. Anyway, we should be friends, Emily May! (I also run ihollaback.org, if you ever want to make a street harassment comic). My twitter is @emilymaynot.

@missannethrope Our nanny's son is in high school. She works limited hours during the week, is done in the afternoon, and takes her son to school and picks him up every day and is home with him at night and on weekends. As much as I love her, I would LOVE to have spent the last four years with rambunctious twins doing nothing but parenting them while also magically making enough money to contribute to our family's financial needs, but it didn't work out that way, unfortunately, and I'm glad we were able to work out an alternative."

@mynamebackwards We (secretly) call choices made under the influence of a fast "juicisions." I hate juicisions.

And here is the problem in the simplest terms: "I went ahead and had my son. Those people weren’t there after I lost my job and couldn’t afford my COBRA, utilities, rent, food."

One time, I was having some "alone time" with the radio on in the background, and Bette Midler's "From A Distance" came on.

I can't finish with her shouting "GOD IS WATCHING US!" at me.

@laurel Why did Peggy Guggenheim pick up the phone? Because Alexander Calder!

@allofthecrafts Ummmm I bought a 25 lb bag recently, and then photographed it wearing a hat as "my new boyfriend." Because that's how much I love them.

@mynamebackwards That is ten kinds of bullshit, yo. I'm sorry that happened; it makes me want to kick-punch the guy who did that.

Nachthexen would be a damn good name for a post punk feminist hardcore screamo band.

@SmartCookie John Mayer can't wait to get down on his knees and start pleasing Jesus, wants to feel his hot love all over his face?
