On Just Some Things I'm Really Excited About Right Now?!

I'm pettily enthusiastic about The Borgias, which I finished watching over the weekend. I'm particularly obsessed with 1. the incest, because I've never met an incestual storyline I didn't love and 2. Lucrezia's second husband's furry tush. COME AT ME.

On Not That Kind of Death: An Interview With Caitlin Doughty

I don't want to be buried, because the idea of my fingernails continuing to grow makes me upset. I don't want to be cremated, though, because then I would be literal dust and I HATE dust. Burial at sea, maybe?

On Ask a (Terrifyingly) Clean Person: Oozing Gourds, Glue Mishaps and Food Coloring Woes

@Vera Knoop I think the ash works as sort of a stain? Try it with just butter (or mayo) if you don't have ash and see how it goes! And then come back and tell me how it went.

@Susanna Sure, be greedy! For the ink stain, you want to use rubbing alcohol (more on that here). And the answer to your kettle question is . Let me know how that all works out!

(There's no tone on the internet, so to be clear*, I'm yanking your chains!)(*I literally wrote "to be clean")

ALSO! What was everyone's favorite Hallowe'en piece this week? I cannot pick a favorite. I think I'll just reread them all this weekend while watching The Unaired Elvira Show Pilot for the 57th time.

@OhMarie I think it was!!! The biggest problem with the annual Hallowe'en posts is that I generally get the really good questions in November :(
