On What Is a "Water Fountain"

@AnalogMetronome Oh wait, that map isn't on the link that was up there. It's this one.

On What Is a "Water Fountain"

The "y'all" map warmed the cockles of my heart. As much as I love living in Yankeeland, I miss the way people back down south talk.

On Keep Drinking Coffee

@fondue with cheddar I'm so sorry. My grandfather who lived with us until he died in 2004 had it and it was such a hard thing to watch, even from the perspective of clueless, self-centered teenage me. I imagine it's even harder as an adult, when you're more aware. I'm sending good thoughts your way and internet hugs, if you're a hugs sort of person.

On Keep Drinking Coffee

@fondue with cheddar I think, as with most science of this sort, that the operative words here are "may" and "could." The might as well have followed the whole thing up with "YMMV."

ETA: That came off a little snarkier than intended. I'm sorry your grandmother has dementia, I know from firsthand experience how hard that can be.

On Beauty Secrets: Human Tears

@Valley Girl PETECHIA! I had no idea it had a real name and apparently is a similar thing to a hickey. That makes so much sense.

And yes, I find mine are becoming easier to trigger the older I get...I don't recall getting them at all before I was 17 or so.

On Beauty Secrets: Human Tears

Does anyone else get those tiny purple spots under their eyes (like broken capillaries) when they cry really hard? No? Just me?

On I Look Like a German Man

This is great. I would love to hear more about your adventures (in both travel and self-expression).

On My Foreign Mom

@Porn Peddler Oh yeah, it's totally different, but I think Nicole's point is that we all (or maybe just we anxious types) have those moments where we said or did something terribly unkind or thoughtless to someone who loved us and are asphyxiated by guilt and regret every time we think about it. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong though.

On Boston News

@Roxanne Rholes Holed up in my apartment in Brookline, watching the news. Didn't get out bed until noon, but can't exactly say I slept well, between the sirens and the nightmares. Not the best of weeks.
