Loved Mists of Avalon years ago; subsequent revelations that Marion Zimmer Bradley was a child molester makes it hard to revisit it.

Either a jar of peppers with a Best Before date of June 2009, or the Lost City Of Ninevah. Both were unexpected.

Don’t subtweet people on Kinja, it’s lame. In any event, think how many people could are familiar with a performer’s output is actually a pretty relevant metric in how “influential” they are. It’s not the end all be all, but it is certainly relevant. Read more

Missed The Office train the first time around, and watching it now on Netflix. We watched New Girl when it was on, so I was introduced to Angela Kinsey that way. It was, and remains, hilarious to see Jess’s drug-doing, popular girl, “Loose Cannon” coworker as the congenitally uptight sourpuss she plays on The Office.

Really glad we collectively agreed on cancelling calling people ‘humans’. I don’t know why it drives me nuts, but it does! An old dear friend of mine has taken to saying it and it just.......it’s faux quirky in the worst way. I feel like I should gently say something but IRL it’s hard, you know?
