@Decca Ack! No! I'm an only child and I'm contstantly working to be as generous as possible to combat the ideas of self-centered and materialistic onlies. Please don't tar us all with the same brush!

On What to Do With This Story?

This is going to sound sanctimonious as hell, but those people did what was right for them. What I have to say about it is worthless.

On Kids and Food

@thebestjasmine Girl, where have you been? I feel like I haven't seen you around these parts in a long ass time.

On If Obituaries Were in the Conditional

Dear God, I click through to your blog and while I'm happy that you are moving to a bigger place, that condo is just the the most charming place ever. I would LOVE to live there; I can see why you'll miss it. Oh, and also, I'm crying.

On "Tens," Office Racism, and a Molehill

@mczz I don't know. If I was LW4 and I truly was confused, getting nailed to the wall by Hairpin commenters would probably do the trick and clear my headspace out.

On Be Less Crazy About Your Body ... For the Children

@carolita Thank you so much for your articulate responses here. No one has a monopoly on feeling lonely, or feeling different, or feeling unattractive. NO ONE. I really appreciate the point of view you've demonstrated here.

On Make (Pleasant) Eye Contact

@Spandrelist I live in Minneapolis, which is just about the friendliest damn city for bikers (or trying to be). I like your comment. I'm a biker and a driver, and I must say that I've had more negative experiences as a driver toward bikers than vice versa, for precisely the reasons you've stated. It's tough, because I understand the size and safety differentials, but I can't seriously can't hack driving through the city sometimes, with all the bike craziness I see.

On Cartoonist Jessica Abel on Graphic Novels, Jungle Music, and Tequila

@schadenfraulein For real. I thought she sounded like a brat.

Before I make any rash decisions, I'm going to need Anne Helen Petersen to weigh in, thanks.

On I'm Going to Talk Briefly About My Baby Now

@melis Regarding the commenter numbers, I respectfully disagree. While you may take umbrage with BunB's general tone, I don't believe that it's helpful to suggest that a new person's contribution to the site is somehow less meaningful than your own. thebestjasmine is perfectly capable of defending her position without relying on her status as #300 or whatever. And I think this because I'm a big fan of thebestjasmine and generally really appreciate her input on most posts. She don't take no guff.
