On Let's Quit Screwing Around Here

I haven't been this excited for a Christmas since I was 4 years old and I asked Santa for a Little Tykes Party Kitchen.

On Not a Fever Dream

@SarahP ZOMG I can't BELIEVE that somebody else remembers Zoobilee Zoo! Lookout Bear was my imaginary friend! I also had a Zoobilee Zoo board game! I just really, really liked shows where people dressed up as animals, I guess.

On Why Outsourcing Hurts Beyond the Olympics, or The Selective Memory of Congresspeople Amazes Me

@thiscallsforsoap I'm actually from a town near Gloversville. The Fownes glove factory is still located there, and around the holidays you can go to their itty bitty outlet store and get INSANE deals on outerwear from a bunch of different designer brands that are still manufactured there!

On Love Your Friends, it is the Only Way

Ummm, I just read Gone, Girl in like 12 hours yesterday. I don't want to spoil anything for those of you who might read it (and you should! So much fun!), so I'll just say, I thought Amy was an interesting character. And I am not certain she should be lumped into this statement.

@Megano! I definitely sobbed through the whole finale. The whole. damn. thing. I'm kind of looking forward to doing it again...very cathartic.

I am watching Six Feet Under all the way through for the second time. (Thanks, mom's HBO GO account!) It's making me SO HAPPY. Keith and David are about to get back together! SOULMATES!

On Quiz: Are You Being Insane About Choosing Your Bridesmaids' Dresses?

@TheBelleWitch and everyone THANK YOU. My mom is all like "I know it's unreasonable but just don't argue with her about it" but I mean, come on! I'm almost 30, and you can't tell me what shoes I can wear. And what if I was 5'10"? She wouldn't have asked me to be in the wedding? It's just nice to be validated by y'all! Grazi!

On Quiz: Are You Being Insane About Choosing Your Bridesmaids' Dresses?

Question RE: I am MOH in my cousin's wedding this summer. I agreed to wear a dress that isn't particularly flattering to my body type because she loved it, and hey, she's the bride. But now, because she is 5'4" and wearing flats and I am 5'7", she is also mandating that I wear flat shoes. So that I don't look taller than her in pictures. I have athletic calves, the dress is short, and I'm already uncomfortable with how I'm going to look without adding on stumpy legs. Is it unreasonable for me to argue with this decision? I mean, it's her day and everybody's going to be looking at her and her hubby anyway. Why should she care how tall I look, right? And also, the other bridesmaid can wear whatever shoes she wants because she is the same height as the bride. Is there a reasonable, polite way for me to say "Screw you, I'm wearing pumps"?
