On What's the Best Time Your Family Has Ever Trolled You?

My sister spent a sizable chunk of her childhood convinced that the stripes on the rug between our beds turned into snakes as soon as she fell asleep.

Confession: I was the troll in this scenario.

On Angela's Ashes

Thanks for this, Sarah. At least we'll always have Jordan taking Angela's hand in the hallway by the lockers, in front of everyone, while Buffalo Tom plays "Late at Night."

Gets me every time.

On Women Real Tired of Your Shit in Art

Lili's been doing " ... in Art" posts since at least 2011 (as clicking on her byline reveals). How is that plagiarism?

On Bill Cosby's Pound Cake

That profile was so weird; in the third-to-last paragraph the author finally gets around to mentioning that oh, by the way, "[a]t least four women" have accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault. WHAAAAT?

@chrysopoeia Bonnie Hunt in "Return to Me," so great.

On Ask a Fancy Person: Occasionless Gifts, Chemo Baldness at the Office, The "Thanks For the Birthday Wishes" Anomie

To weed out people who are reflexively issuing a generic post when they get a reminder, take your birthday off your Facebook profile. Presto! Messages, emails, etc. almost exclusively from people who like you enough to keep track on their own.

On The Hairpin Rom Com Club: Notting Hill

That photo captures the exact scene that ruined the movie for me. He's wrapped up in his book, and she's staring off into space. You are married to a bookstore owner, shallow American actress, but just lie there gestating rather than doing anything that even remotely suggests that you have an interior life, like READING.

I also hate Love Actually with the white-hot fury of a thousand suns, so.
