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.

On Is Snooze the Enemy?

@nonvolleyball: Every single year from high school through the end of college, on the first day after each semester ended, I would set my alarm for something like 7am (SO EARLY... back then. Oh, adulthood.) simply for the pleasure of turning it off, literally giving it the finger and saying "fuck you, alarm!", and rolling over. It was often a top highlight of winter and summer vacations.

On Interview with a Pastor on Spiritual Grammar, Mysticism and Coming Out

I wonder where he's coming from when he says it would be "deceptive" in a sense to be a Catholic clergyman. Granted, seminaries are tightening down the hatches when it comes to admitting openly gay men, but I imagine it's still done. As he says, the key is celibacy, which is the gold standard for ANY un-Church-married person, gay or straight.

On The Treat Yo Self Pie

UGH I don't know why it's not showing up, and of course I already deleted the primary link from my email. Groupon's being really slow but if you go to Groupon Goods and search for leggings you should be able to find it!

On What's Your Excuse for Not Having My Body?

@RebeccaKW I went to private school! I had to wear SKIRTS! Skirts and hairy legs. I spent recess wishing I could crawl under the mulch and just hide... at least that's how I spent the recesses that I didn't spend singing Sound of Music numbers or playing Star Wars with my elementary-school best friend.

On What's Your Excuse for Not Having My Body?

@StandardTuber Thank you! So far I have found that to be the case, and "fuck the haters" is my new motto for the back half of 2013. :)

On What's Your Excuse for Not Having My Body?

@RNL Yup stubble everywhere. It's driving me crazy, but for the last year or two now it's been at least half the reason I haven't let the hair grow back. It's winter, so I'm wearing sweaters more often, so it seems a good a time as any to try it.

Although today I am wearing a shirt with short sleeves and I'm super self-conscious because tonight I am seeing (1) an ex-boyfriend AND (2) my Ex's (capital E) college roommate, who ergo was essentially MY college roommate plus I had a minor crush on him. So. Tonight's gonna be weird and I'm going to wish I had waited to grow them out, but YOLO I guess.
