All tomfoolery, all the time.

On "Alice Munro Updated Her Cover Photo"

My aunt loaned me a collection of her stories a while ago! A long while ago. Probably last Christmas, at least. I should read it.

On What Is the Worst Possible Job for You?

@325013498@twitter I'm in development, doing behind-the-scenes stuff, and thinking about doing managerial stuff and/or frontline fundraising makes me want to die a little.

On How Long Did It Take You to Unclench After Gravity?

@fabel I will DEFINITELY not be seeing this in theaters because there's no way it won't make me incredibly motion-sick. (I get motion-sick just from shaky-cam and/or watching people play Portal, so there's no way. NO WAY.)

On Friday Open Thread


Excellent! I'm so glad it arrived and that you enjoyed it! I really liked both the mixes you sent me--I'm going to be listening to them a lot, I can tell--and the earrings got hella compliments when I wore them on Wednesday. (edit: And I'm not familiar with the HP Lovecraft Historical Society, but I am looking them up in a hot second, that sounds amazing.)

I also received @Thuja's mix the other day and I am going to listen to it right...NOW! I hope other people have been getting their mixes out!

On A Game Plan for Going Viral

It's awful to see people making fun of you. My example is relatively mild--I took a ridiculous, unflattering picture of my bedhead one day and put it on Livejournal, and then later saw it on a different Livejournal community devoted to terrible hairstyles--but it does feel terrible when it's all these strangers cheerfully, thoughtlessly judging you to little tiny pieces. I admire Caitlin for writing about this thoughtfully and well.

On What to Expect When You’re Expecting a Sea Monster

Ah, progeny. Such a blessing, such a horrible, horrible sea-witch curse.

On The Middle Part Is Having Its Moment, Again, Somehow

My brother had a pretty sweet middle part until he cut his long hair off a couple years ago. Now he's going for more of a George-Harrison-slash-Charles-Manson look.
