I live in Boston, have a food blog, and love advice columns.

On A Post About Books, Sort Of

Mayyyyybe he's just a hoarder, but I like to think Stan is reading these books (or wants to) as he picks them up, which makes me like this story so much!

On Tips For Treating Your Skin in The Wintertime

@Bunnies Wow, I thought the exact opposite: this is very much something I would have expected to find on the Hairpin a couple years ago, like the "getting the body you've always wanted" bit.

On The Three Best Villains from R.L. Stine's Fear Street

I had more then 100 (preadolescent me would be so disappointed that I don't remember the exact number) Fear Street books and reread them often. (Especially easy since they only took like an hour to read.) I LOVED them so much!

On Coming Out at Work, An Introductory Queer Library, and Being "Queer Enough"

LW3, try to meet more nonmonogamous people in general; I think then you'll find a lot of these questions are easier answered (or don't even come up because everyone makes the right assumptions). If you live in or near a major city, there are probably some meetups you could find and attend--even if you don't click with any particular people there, you can ask them what bars/clubs/dance nights they frequent where you could also go meet cool people who are likely to understand/not question your situation.

I am dying from the cuteness.

On In Praise of Tori Amos

Nailed it with how it feels to admit to liking Tori Amos. (I DO LIKE BOTH, OK?)

On Interview with a Woman Who Recently Discovered She Loves Group Sex

@wryredhead Every relationship has different dynamics, and different people like different things. The fact that she straight-out says that her husband calling the shots is "part of the fantasy" means that it IS okay for them and is something they've communicated about.

On Henry James, Reviewed by Henry James

I love Henry James (and often find myself defending him at length to anyone who will listen to me talk about Henry James), and I LOVE this review.

I remember not being impressed with that adaptation, though.

On Someone Explain Dating to Me

@Statham Another OKC success here! I got the normal creepy/practically automated messages, but I also met some interesting people, a couple of whom I'm still friends with on facebook, and one of whom I'm married to.
