I'm not taking no fuckin' responsibility for cats I don't know, man.


I just took my last test ever this week. (I hope.) "Fuck tests" indeed.

On "It’s perfectly possible that she will react badly."

Well, there's the Angelica Bell-David Garnett marriage.

That's the only one I can think of, though.

On The Questions Of #BlackLivesMatter

@tofuswalkman I haven't watched any of these videos - not even the racist fraternity song videos - and I feel really conflicted about my decision to. (I have seen still photos.) It's not because of squeamishness or anything. If I were on the jury for one of these cases, I could watch the videos. But I'm NOT on the jury - what will the videos show me? I know that these people are dead, and that the police killed them.

But I'm a white girl, right. My not-watching . . . am I avoiding the issue? But if I do watch, I think I'm just participating in the nouveau-lynching postcards, or something. (It's not lynching if the police do it, right? It's like . . . state-sponsored murder. What do they call it in dictatorships?)

On Controversial Opinions Post: The Moisturizer I Don't Like

@regina dentata I'd been reading over the name, rather than just reading it, until I got to your comment. Now I have read the name, and I will never buy this. Even though it is French. Even. Though.

On Friendships with Men, Jokes about Men, and Spiderwebs for Catching Men

L3, this won't help with the sexy visitors problem, but I am also a pretty messy person in private areas. I am rather neat about public areas. This means that, when I have friends over, I can just close my bedroom door. (I don't keep my house in a guest-ready state at all times, but rather easy-to-tidy-up-quickly, fwiw.)

I also think that part of being a good guest is not commenting, except positively, on the state of your host's house. This is especially true of sexy guests, surely!

On "Cheap Sunglasses, Expensive Lingerie"

@truelove I've noticed that the price difference between "expensive" eyeliner and drugstore eyeliner is not so big, too. And this is REALLY not true of mascara. My Covergirl mascara is sometimes $2.50 when I get on drugstore.com at the right time, and expensive mascara costs something like ten times that much. (Those are the cheap ones!!!) And there is always too much in the package for the amount of time it is non-gross to use it.

I do like trying out mascara samples, though. Bring on my birthday mascara sample!

On "Cheap Sunglasses, Expensive Lingerie"

I LOVE expensive lingerie, but I am a grad student so I get that stuff on sale (Gilt/Amazon/Figleaves...). I was feeling pretty good about all of this because I was pretty convinced AP didn't make bras in my band size (30), but I just went to their website and . . . they do.

On "Cheap Sunglasses, Expensive Lingerie"

@331703347@twitter I worry about this a LOT but I don't know how to check this? They come with that sticker, but how much do I believe that sticker?
