@StandardTuber Thumbs down. THUMBS DOWN!!!
I also had mostly handmade clothes my American Girl doll. My parents bought the doll (reluctantly, I had to agree to not get any other Christmas presents that year) but they were not about to buy all of those clothes.
I also just did the math and my American Girl doll is 22 or 23 this year. Jesus. (We only had 3 to choose from! She only cost $80! Whippersnappers!)
@DullHypothesis Or the posing!! So great.
I love these so much. I'm just a sucker for mashups. I know they're usually kind of tacky, like cross-genre cover songs, but I don't care (I also love cross-genre cover songs). NOTE: tacky does not apply to these DJ earworm things, they are genius. I am talking about the guy on the radio on Saturday night who just throws the words from one famous song over the music from another famous song. (Still love them)
@catalina My parents are super Catholic as well (like, they refuse to visit my sister even for a party because she lives with her boyfriend, and she's 27 years old).
Are any of your siblings married? Did any of them get married outside of church or talk about getting married outside of a church? I didn't get married in a church and my mom was actually ok with it (I mean, I know she's sad generally that I'm not religious, but that cat was already out of the bag at that point--she didn't give me extra grief about the wedding). I think she was just so glad I wasn't living in sin anymore that she was fine with it. I would definitely have expected more pushback.
I love the Fug Girls!!
I actually was in an argument with a friend about humor and ladies (I know, barf) where I convinced him that there are vast swaths of hilarious shit happening that he is unaware of/doesn't have the cultural touchpoints to understand using only the GFY Karl Lagerfeld character.
@j-i-a This is glorious, it's a crime that it's buried here.
I like to be above actually leaving my home on Black Friday but not above buying cheap shit. So:
-I go on underwear buying sprees, which is a self-fulfilling prophecy because all of the last spree's underwear starts to get gross and non-elastic and occasionally holey at the same time, necessitating another spree. This spree was done with that 50% off at the Gap. I also threw in a belt for my husband just so I could pretend like I was Christmas shopping.
-My tv has been slowly dying for a month or two now (one half of the picture goes dark and it needs a smack) and we finally bought a new one yesterday with a weekend long sale at Sears.
@Stevie Yeah, I think that's what we're missing too--also what temp the oven should be at (I've seen low and slow or high or my own favorite, high then low).
@Blushingflwr Ahaha, look at him!!
