On Get This Look: Adventure Time

@bevrockin With the firewolves? ugghhh. my heart.

THAT is why I love that show. It is a silly little thing where something will happen like every 3 episodes and I'll go "Oh! My heart!"

Seriously, I cannot talk about the Ice King's back story. Too sad. Now I'm thinking about it. SAAAD.

On The Craving: One Woman's Salty Confession

@A. Louise Yeah, BUY THIS - BECAUSE you are a woman!" is a pretty deep well advertising goes to for... almost everything even vaguely lady related. Booze especially.

If someone out there isn't writing a thoughtful essay on booze consumption and gender stereotypes, they should be. I'll never forget ordering a bourbon neat at a bar and having the guy next to me say "wow... now I feel like a total pussy." This was last year. Apparently ladies don't drink bourbon. Or something. STICK TO YOUR APPLETINIS, LADY BOOZEHOUNDS!

On What Is a "Water Fountain"

@RK Fire True, I apologize. Maryland shall be spared in my cross-country road trip to explain to the masses that they are pronouncing Bowie Knife incorrectly and to mend their ways.

@Hiroine Protagonist Yeah, I'll be over here enjoying the hell out of a Chicago dog with the other happy fatties. Or, rather, normal people who love delicious things and don't see food as a thing to be carefully purchased with cardio.

On What Is a "Water Fountain"

@coolallison The original piece apparently didn't make the Jim Bowie/Bowie knife connection and seemed flummoxed that only Texas and DC used "Boo-wie." DUDE'S NAME IS BOO-WIE. IT IS A BOO-WIE KNIFE, Y'ALL!

This is like the angst caused by someone being wrong on the internet but like times A THOUSAND. It's going to take me so long to drive around and correct the rest of the country...

On What the Hell Should You Do With Your Life?

@harebell I don't know, though, "Money isn't really that important" is a sentiment I see bandied about an awful lot by people who haven't had trouble making rent. Or buying food.

ETA: which is not to say that's the case in THIS case, but it's a phrase that seems to track with a certain level of privilege. I'm saying this badly. I'm the worst.

On What the Hell Should You Do With Your Life?

Can we talk about this part?
"Money Isn’t Really That Important and Doesn’t Make Anyone All That Happier"
Because I can tell you that LOTS of money doesn't necessarily make you happy, but enough money SURE fucking helps and it is ACTUALLY important. It's nice when you reach a point where having to make a $1000 car repair doesn't send you spiraling into a financial crisis. Like, where are these joyous assholes who don't mind getting evicted?

@Lumpy Space Princess Thanks to your (amazing) screen name, my brain auto-read this comment in LSP's voice and it was A MILLION TIMES amazing. Especially the last line.
