This one’s old but golden:
Today I realized a person who I once had to work with a little bit and who I do not like has managed to amass actual internet celebrity. Not like, millions of followers, but like 70k and climbing. How irritating.
I got a text this morning from an author friend asking if I’d seen all the big drama in the publishing world today yet, and I said no, and then she proceeded to tell me that some debut author accused Nora Roberts of plagiarizing her title and cover. That author is Tomi Adeyemi, and you know what? After being way too…
Monterey Bay Aquarium is one of my favorite Twitters, at least partially because I love how they obviously let their social media team do whatever they want
Honestly, that just seems so dumb to me. Don’t call candidates who are currently employed and wrote: “please keep this discrete” in their cover letter in the middle of the workday! That’s what emails are for.
Yesterday for Christmas my new sister-in-law gave my mother one of those make-it-yourself type calendars that you can order online, with your own photos. My mom is a sucker for sentimentality, so the minute she opened it and started flipping through it to look at all the family photos, I turned and said “Now she’s…
I stayed in an AirBnB for my brother’s wedding last weekend, it was mediocre. I stayed in an AirBnB for a week in Seattle a few months back, that experience was AWFUL. I have booked and will be staying in an AirBnB in the California desert in about a month.

I used to think doctors were like doctors on TV — they were all on the lookout for health problems, and if something stumped them, they’d do research and figure it out. I have discovered in my life that doctors are literally never that way. Consider this encouragement to advocate for yourselves.
How long after removing the IUD did it take to get your period again? Did you spot at all?
My Congressional Representative Salud Carbajal — a US war veteran born in Mexico! Pissing Trump off right there on the hill! — has joined forces with Tammy Duckworth to spread the news about some of the most recent egregious changes to the AHCA.
What the fuck is with people? Story and venting below the jump.
I live in California where recreational weed is now legal. Even if it weren’t, I could have a medical card this time tomorrow, if not faster. (I don’t have one yet because I haven’t needed one.) Right now I am using weed — usually vaped or more preferably, drops — to help mitigate some serious hip pain that was…
I’m tired of the world being on fire and am instead going to talk about a recent makeup purchase I made, which was Lipsense.
