Re: Shamelessly Currying Favor with Ellie

Comedian Jeremy McLellan (beloved by Stevo Darkly, among others) and his wife just had a baby and I can't fucking handle how cute he is. Thank goodness I got my tubes out or I would be obsessed with getting pregnant again.

Re: Petty annoyances

I'm meeting a friend at 8pm tonight (a Friday night! not even a work night!) and I'm already exhausted just thinking of it. Who stays up that late on purpose? ugggghhhh

Re: Twitter!

I have occasionally caved and bought a pack of cigarettes, and the lingering smell of gross, stale smoke is always what convinces me to re-quit. But the longing remains!

Re: Ladyfashun

Thank you for the internet research! That is a random reference for a t-shirt outside a specialty site. Also, looks like it says "feeling of flatness to top of nose" and then "snout" is way down there at the bottom hem? What a weird fuckin' shirt.

Re: Twitter!

I'm pretty sure I could live to be a thousand years old, and still feel the exact same longing for a cigarette every time I see someone smoking one.

Lt. Col. Vindman is a two-face. In some photos he's cute and in some he looks like Humpty Dumpty.

Dear Shifty Schiff,

Re: Money for Nothing: the Universal Basic Income

at its height it seemed to be generous, non-time-limited unemployment, housing provided by the local council, plus of course the free education, free healthcare, etc. Yeah, I just realized how unclear I was in my post! Most of the books I've read are talking about the dole in the 70s and 80s and ma...

Re: It's not the size of the screen...

It also manages to be set in Venezuela, with the whole plot hinging around corruption and poverty and mismanagement of resources, and never mention socialism, let alone ponder whether that might be a contributing factor. But that's a pretty standard fault of Hollywood in general, and not specific to...

Re: Money for Nothing: the Universal Basic Income

I confess I don't know anything about "the dole" besides hearing references to it in some of the British novels I've read. From my extremely ignorant perspective, it sounds a little like UBI -- kind of like money for nothing, but not very much, just enough to get by? Or am I way off base? (yes, I co...

Re: Twitter!

I'm still curious about the millionaire thing, because the list of rich writers basically begins and ends with "people who are already celebrities" and "people who've had a lot of big movies made from their books". Sarah Dessen recently sold rights for three of her books to Netflix. I don't know if...
