On Ask a Fancy Person: Occasionless Gifts, Chemo Baldness at the Office, The "Thanks For the Birthday Wishes" Anomie

I know someone who buys thrift gifts for friends regularly, and she recently complained (on good ol' Facebook) about how people never return the favor. No good.

On The Best Time I Lost a Tampon and Found My Cervix

This is all very interesting, though now I'm ashamed that I've never "looked into" my cervix.

Y'all, don't worry! The show's music will be in very good hands with Buddy Miller.

On Beauty Q&A: Cheap Creams, Jeans, and Long Hair Dreams

I'm almost 43, and I've finally found a way to make my typically dry, bumpy skin look luminous. I credit tons of water, a quick nightly wash with a Target brand exfoliating face wipe (cucumber rag, my bf calls it), coconut oil as night cream on face and neck, and Kiehl's sunscreen moisturizer during the day. If I don't have a cuke rag on me, I splash with cold water and pat dry. I had an accident recently and had to stay vigilant with sunscreen to avoid facial scarring. That could've been what helped the most, come to think of it.

On A Text Dialogue With a Twist

I wonder if a male EMT or ER doctor has ever asked a woman out while trying to save her life?

On On Quickie Weddings and Frustrating Fantasies

LW#3, the correct response is, "You're perfect exactly as you are," but the question should never be asked in the first place! I hope you can put this obsession behind you because once you do, everything, especially sex, will get better.

On Workplace Mistakes and Greenerish Grasses

@redheaded&crazie So, my friend has a theory: the Marriage Switch. Until his switch is flipped on, a man won't marry anyone, no matter how wonderful. One day, his switch is flipped on for whatever reason (in my experience, all his best dude friends do it), and the man marries the first woman he dates after that. I think SATC had a similar theory, something about cabs. I'm not usually prone to this kind of thinking, but in this instance it was an incredible comfort. The funny thing is that I'm a known commitmentphobe who never, ever wanted to get married until I met him. HOWEVER, I'm good. I heard the news, I grieved a couple of days and moved on.
