On When I Die, Bury Me With Several Carefully Embalmed Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

just fill my coffin with my nonna's gnocchi, toss me in there, and I'll be set for eternity.

On Happy All Saints Day, The Day We Listen to "Never Ever" By All Saints on Repeat

I may have screamed a little at my desk at this. (also, it turns out that I still know every single word of this song)

On Every Kind of Purse

@Urwelt my dad has solved this problem by wearing a fishing vest at all times with many millions of pockets that he fills with his business-y things plus gum, pens, etc. it's embarrassing and adorable at the same time. DADS.

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)
