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

@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that)

Since Drake is moving to Cleveland now, do you think he'll perform the same services for the US government . . .? I just need to know if I should move to Cleveland and start answering the door.

@Jia Tolentino I'm super bummed you're leaving, Jia, but I'm also looking forward to seeing what you're doing next!

(I hope it's a new website I can look at instead of working on my dissertation. There are never enough of those.)

On Apologia

It often seems to me that feminized speech patterns, and particularly apologies and up-talking, are under-estimated for their ability to communicate contempt.

I mean, "I'm sorry, I ordered this with no mayo" might mean you're sorry for being a bother - or it might mean you think the person you're talking to is an idiot.

@madeleineld That line in Mean Girls always makes me briefly regret that I started watching what is, let's admit, an otherwise perfect movie.

On Robin Williams

I want to watch The Birdcage, but I do not want to cry all the way through The Birdcage.

This is so strange.

On The Coldest Winter, etc.

Sarah Miller, sometimes I save up your article to read on the weekend or later in the week, and sometimes I gobble it up. I've never figured out which way is better, but since I pretty much always reread it, I guess it doesn't matter.

@amitygardens@twitter I might have to start reading Jezebel again. Good luck, Emma!
