On After a Lawsuit, Texas Hospital Finally Lets Marlise Munoz Go

@supernintendochalmers RIGHT? "We're not letting you take her off life support, AND you have to pay out the nose for the life support that you don't want her to be on!" Fan-fucking-tastic.

On Americans Have Either Stopped Reading Books or Stopped Lying About It

@ru_ri I am re-reading A Song of Ice and Fire, slowly, and just downloaded The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt (on a friend's recommendation) and Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling because I've been dying to read it for months. I finished How to Be a Woman by Caitlin Moran in about 48 hours because I am obsessed with it, and memoirs in general.

I also read a tremendous amount of YA, most recently Eleanor and Park and Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell.

I went through my Amazon wishlist today and bought a bunch of physical books (gasp!) because I just bought a new bookshelf - which is already half-full from the overflow from my first one BUT ANYWAY - and there are so many books you can buy for $0.01 plus shipping. Mostly religious stuff but a few other interesting things too, I think.

Mostly I justify my excessive Netflix/DVR habits by devouring books at an even more rapid pace.

On Ask Santa

Dear Santa, Will you please put someone who would love me and who I would love under the Christmas tree? I will make sure to open it right away!! Eunice C., Boston

Yes, I will. We have done this in the past. It is a little disruptive to the life of the person who ends up under the Christmas tree. Imagine waking up in wrapping paper in someone else's house on Christmas morning! Someone you might love almost instantly! It's a fine story to someday tell the grandchildren. We also might just nudge someone your way, if we think that might be a better option. Maybe you will accidentally receive a package for them. Perhaps their car will be stuck in a snowbank and you will happen by and help push them out. There is so much love all around us, so many people who are good and who just want to love and be loved! But this year, you will find this love! You've been very good and you really deserve it. Please, be good to each other! For your future grandchildren's sake!

This is just. perfect.

On The Hobbit, Reviewed, Perfectly

@rallisaurus My friends have challenged me to write a fanfic about how Smaug needed all that gold so he could put down a deposit on his flat in Baker Street. London is EXPENSIVE! Especially for fire-breathing dragons who shoot holes in walls.

On On the Death of Renisha McBride

@Jen@twitter Right? I mean, usually people who want to rob/maim/rape/kill me are not going to be ringing my doorbell. I would either ignore it and make sure I know where my sharp scissors are, or I'd veeeeeery carefully try to figure out what the deal is by opening my window a crack and yelling out of my 2nd-story apartment to figure out what's happening. I don't own a gun but I probably will when I eventually leave NYC.

On How My Obsession With Furnishing A Future Put Me Nearly $40,000 In Debt

@tuntastica Her responses in this thread have sucked, but her partner died 2 months ago and I'm inclined to cut her some slack. Grief makes us do things we regret.

On Is Snooze the Enemy?

@fallopian princess Yeah all this would be a dealbreaker for me. I have never hit snooze in my LIFE and I could not live with someone who was a habitual snooze-hitter.
