On If I Had A Dollar For Every Time I Was Asked To Cover A Teenage Boy In Fake Placenta...

@Neve Garrett You obviously don't live in San Francisco. It is a Thing here.

On Tips For Treating Your Skin in The Wintertime

I just finished re-reading SOTL yesterday. You forgot the part about having large quantities of beef brains on hand to rub into your skin, keeping it soft and supple.

On How Have You Made Yourself Proud This Year?

@roseandthen Pretty much all the stuff I got done was with the support of my siblings, a therapist and an SSRI. I still count it, because sometimes asking for help is really the biggest accomplishment, not what happens afterwards. Also, barely making it is really fucking hard, so that should totally be celebrated. Ever take a swimming test? Treading water is exhausting. It is real, hard work. I might be a stranger on the internet, but I'm proud of what you and all the other Toasties have accomplished.

On Susan Sarandon On Her Vampire Lesbian Sex Scene With Catherine Deneuve

Well, now the Lakme duet will forever remind me of Susan Sarandon's breasts. I am okay with this.

On How Have You Made Yourself Proud This Year?

I got a LOT of stuff done - signed up for Obamacare, found a doctor I liked, got an eye exam, filed my late tax returns, did my fafsa on time, and asked my family for help with my credit card debt. Some of this was hard, some was easier than I expected, but it has all led to positive changes in my life. I have a hard time giving myself credit for stuff, especially when it feels like other people manage these things routinely, but I try to remind myself that anything I do to make my life better is something to be proud of.

On Excerpts From the November 2014 Vogue, Presented Without Commentary

@birthdaycake I looked at the website, and it might be Hugh Jackman? I don't find him that beautiful, but he's one of the cover stories.

On What to Wear at Fancy Halloween Parties

@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) I don't think Canadians are lacking in mustaches, so feel free to dig that package out of the trash.

On Spell Book of Beauty

This is totally reminding me of my high school Wicca experiments, and what I found so compelling in them. Ritual + transformation. Powerful stuff.

On Stipulations for a Contemporary Will

I am so glad I'm not the only one with a secret Tumblr. It's not my fault I discovered fandom late.
