@Super Nintendo Chalmers LAURA BOW!!! I remember sitting in my parents' basement, eating famous amos cookies and playing the shit out of "the dagger of amon ra."

On Which Name Is Weirder, Saxby Chambliss or Barkevious Mingo? The Answer May Tell You Whether or Not You're Racist

my mother in law INSISTS that (back when she did medical billing) she filed paperwork for a new baby named Female (feh-mah-lay). my claim that it's just a racist urban legend didn't go over well...

On "I don’t want her to wear her good nature like a gemstone, her body like an ornament"

I work in advertising (a field that is, in my experience, still extremely sexist). my creative partner is also a woman and as a female team, we get a LOT of shit. just the other day, we were taken aside for what could only be described as a "talking to" for not being nicer and more accommodating about a bullshit situation. I sincerely doubt that any man in my office has ever been told to be nicer and to smile more when being asked to do something that is totally out of the scope of his expertise, as we were. it's because we are girls and we are not supposed to be firm or to stand up for ourselves. we're supposed to smile and say "yes sir, may I have another." (obviously, I'm still really mad about this. yeesh)

On The Books of Our Childhood Summers

nothing evokes those gorgeous, gauzy Michigan summers-by-a-lake for me more than Bruce Coville's Nina Tanleven series. The Ghost Wore Gray and The Ghost in the Third Row were some of my favorite childhood books and traveled up north with me each summer until they absolutely fell apart.

On And I Will Call Her Candy Crush

I refer to this stupid game as my husband's mistress. I think he loves "Candy" more than me.

On What Is Your Personal Garbage Music?

@fondue with cheddar maybe your parents are nice people who don't have perv brains? people who don't see anything wrong with ""You know how much I love you Daddy/But if you don't mind I'm only gonna kiss you on the cheek this time." god, I need to stop. I'm grossing myself out.
