I remember you, Erin Ryan, when you were just a wee little sproglet with a funny upside-down avatar and a way with words that no other Jezebel commenter could match. I remember you.

I wish Friday were a holiday.

You’re still superior to your relatives by virtue of not eating all the cat’s food. Just feel virtuous afterwards.
11. If two of your relatives decide to mate noisily on the roof during dinner, either politely ignore them or go up to watch the fun.
11) Don’t make them watch this this terrible fucking movie.
I thought my family was one very tall, small-headed man in a trench coat, but it turns out it was a stack of dwarves??? Please advise.
