On A Revenge Scenario For Student Loan Borrowers

"Hey new grads, let's get together and not pay our loans back until we get 0.75% interest."
"Whoo hoo!!! No loan payment this month!!!"
"Well, you have to put the money in an escrow account. That way you look responsible and you have it to pay back later."
"No, you said I didn't have to pay it back. I don't wanna."
"It's collective bargaining. It will work."
"Whatever. I'm getting cheese fries."

On Brain Trouble

@YoungCrone Oh yeah. My lupus is the same thing. I was so good at faking sick I ended up needing a kidney transplant. I think that is, like, ninja level fake-outs there.
People are douchebags sometimes.

On Boy-Crazy But Curious, Dating While Disabled, and Introducing Parents to Your "New Norm"

@thelovehater I don't have MS but I have lupus (SLE). I use a cane from time to time. I have gone out dancing (well, with people who were dancing) with my cane.
I've also done the online dating thing, the blind date thing, the random hook up thing.
What eventually worked for me was taking the time to get to know my partner really, really well. He knew about my disease up front, he wasn't about trying to baby me or fetishize it and he wasn't after me for my painkillers.

On What Kind of Restaurant Are You?

@Statham I like to think I'm a laid back coffee- or tea-house, with cool salads and local baked goods, but really, I'm a Starbucks, with a made-up language and unspoken rules and an unbridled lust for world domination.

@thiscallsforsoap Sadly, that's how most journalists write.

On Dresses Considered by Scarlett O'Hara for the Twelve Oaks Barbecue

I'd have to re-read the book to get some really good examples, but I seem to recall Melanie doing almost everything Scarlett did, but being nice to people at the same time.

On Dresses Considered by Scarlett O'Hara for the Twelve Oaks Barbecue

@dontannoyme Bombazine is a fancy weave of cotton. My Aunt Louise (technically, my father's aunt) was born in 1896 and has since passed away. She always used to warn us "Don't spill anything on your fine bombazine," before we went anywhere special. For years, I thought bombazine was old-fashioned slang for boobs.
She also had a vase that if you looked at it from the top, looked like a vulva. The 1920s were really Roaring and I had no idea.
Come to think of it, she probably did mean bombazine as slang for boobs.

It's $550. It does seem very luxurious.
