On Boyfriends' Mothers, "Compassion," and Les Misérables

@letterwriterfour Dude. If you don't want to be friends with the mom, you shouldn't be friends with the mom, and you shouldn't have to be friends with the mom. Try to delicately introduce that idea to your man, and if he can't hear it, then try it without so much delicacy. Basically I'm just saying "you do you, girl." What she's expecting of you is weird. Accepting one out of three invitations seems generous. Boundaries! What if you break up? Why should you have to invest all this time building a relationship with his mom? Please. If you were married it might be different, but you're figuring out how you relate to her son and how your lives mesh together now, and how they might mesh together in the future, possibly, maybe, someday. Get lost, wanna-be-mom-in-law! Ain't nobody got time for that.

@ayo nicole Oh my god I just emailed the Badasses too. Yes yes yes. My mom is a foster doggie mom in NJ and we have a couple amazing rescue dogs, but I'm not ready for my own yet, and this would be amazing. Thank you!

@hellomynameis Get lots of samples! The little piece of paper w/ the color on it is NOT the same as paint on your walls. Get tons and tons of little paint samples, put them on the walls, and see how they look - at different times of day. And if you pick a color and you don't like it, you can always change it. Painting is great. But def do some research. Apartment Therapy has a lot of great posts that will help, and they'll have great recommendations about shades of grey and stuff. Grey is so great for a nursery, it will be wonderful!

Just coming here to say that I'm still in the office (In NYC) and I have so much more to do, I don't think I will ever leave. I may just live here, and only eat delivery from Seamless, and order toiletries from drugstore.com, and never ever leave. At least there is a bottle of wine here, that I am drinking, alone. Sad desk wine.

On "Miss Subways"

@Lu2 Totally. Vera Ellen's performances is so charmingly strange in that movie. Her way of playing lying is to slowly turn her head away from Gene Kelly, even as she slowly, slowly talks to him. "I do have many... social.. engagements..." On The Town, you so crazy.

On "Don't Wanna Know," Cheyenne Jackson

Why hello, Matt Cavenaugh, nice to see you and niiiiice teeth. Hey there, "hottest man on broadway" Nick Adams, we salute you and your large lips. Also the dancer with the long dark curly hair was in In The Heights. I think she goes by "that fierce chick".
