Native Rhode Islander, into reading (pretty much everything but mystery novels for some reason), video games, knitting, cooking. My Real Simple subscription is the most organized thing about me- Ask a Clean Person and A Femme's Guide to Home Improvement ASTOUND ME. Getting a bra fitting was one of the most amazing recent experiences of my life. No lie!

Breaking news: Straight, white, Christian male authority figure fails to comprehend why something could be offensive because he personally isn't offended. Story at 11.
On a distantly-related note: there is a cat at the shelter at which I volunteer named Feral Flynn. He is a disheveled, grumpy old man-cat, so...not much like his namesake.

On the flip side, as an early person who sometimes has crazy things happen, like we all do, the feeling of being late is like hot pokers and boiling oil and roiling shame.
My resolution is to stop reading Internet comments, except on The Hairpin.
@Nancy Sin I don't think it smells bad, but I wore it in college, and now it is permanently etched into my brain in association with that time period, so I can't really wear it now.
