On Black Honey and Me

@Jolie Kerr Yes, me too! I just got it with a gift card after years of thinking the hype couldn't be worth it, but it looks GREAT.

On Girl, Bye (No, Really, Bye, This Is My Last Day)

@Anna Fitz If there is even one mention of placenta in the NYT it will be the best thing that ever happened

I have never done ecstasy (never even seen it, to my knowledge) but for some reason I am convinced that it would be my JAM if I ever did try it. Whenever I get one of those "if you were going to die next week what would you do" questions it's one of the top 5 things I think about.

On Let's Talk About Birth Control

@districter I've never been a consistent pill-user, but I've had a couple of short stints on the pill and I DEFINITELY had differences in arousal--the last time I was on the pill for a couple of months, I stopped because it got a lot harder to have an orgasm.

On A League of Their Own

@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) YES, I never have anything to add. Dave Chappelle in this role is genius.

On Tinder Bios

I would definitely go out with someone who wrote this: "In general, I would say that I prefer feeling good over feeling bad and nice things over crappy things."

"The razor blade is real and will destroy your armpit if you actually use a lot of our soap...LOL!"

On Face Masks with Absolutely No Placenta Listed in the Ingredients

@ru_ri The primary purpose as far as I can tell is to add one more fun thing you can do when you take a real nice luxurious bath.

"THE HAIRPIN IS NOW A FACE MASK BLOG," I do not have a problem with this.

On What's the Best Time Your Family Has Ever Trolled You?

When I was a kid, my Dad used to tell me, "eat your food, there are children starving in Bethesda."

This was a hilarious play on the whole "children starving in X poor country" joke, which I was not familiar with, because Bethesda is one of the richest suburbs of DC where I grew up, which I also did not know.

So, once I was hanging out with my best friend's family and they were visiting a cousin in Bethesda, and I very solemnly informed them that there were children starving there.
