choire answered your question: girl question! Are you sure you should do this? The joy of having them done is, in part, color choice. Anyway: pale apricot. Are you saying the internet doesn’t exist to crowdsource my nail polish choices!?!? Joke’s on you cause pale apricot sounds perfect.
I’m going to a black-tie wedding tomorrow evening (at the Mandarin Oriental which, 1, ooh, and 2, god bless local weddings that are on my side of the island even), and need some advice on what to do with my nails. I’m wearing a tea-length not-bright navy blue dress, sort of a 50s off-the-shoulder A-line feel, and not-sparky gold heels. Probably pretty simple jewelry - my regular...

I decided to give myself a weekendy day today cause I don’t get them on the weekends. I slept in, went to the gym, showered, and now I’m gonna comb my hair and put it into a bunch of braids to make it wavy like I’m eight years old.
In which I don't give writing advice. →
jamiatt: Whenever someone asks me for writing advice I always feel at a loss. Just sit down and write, is what I say. Books do not write themselves. There are no shortcuts. It doesn’t matter how anyone else writes a book. Nothing I could tell you would change the simple fact that the only way a book gets written is if you do it yourself. More. Oddly reassuring.

nouvellabooks: For those looking to laugh out loud. Really bummed that “Now is the winter of our discontent” didn’t make the list. He’s not saying “The winter of our discontent is now.” The sentence goes on. “Now is the winter of our discontent made glorious summer by this sun of York.” At least I think that’s the idea. Correct me if...
Meg just did something really weird. She’s being spazzy and chasing invisible bugs, so I got out the laser monster to let her burn off some steam. She’s chasing it, super crazy, and comes running up to the ottoman. She runs right at it, and sort of wraps her paws around a corner, like she’s hugging it. And then she freezes. But she’s not stuck. Ears back, eyes big, claws...

matthewgallaway replied to your photo: GPOBW Is Maggie still on the fridge? Yes, often - we still have Bull in the bedroom and the gate closed at night, so she can eat and use the facilities (facility, singular, I guess) and remember that the apartment is her space, too. But she’s a lot less freaked out when Bull is out and she’s up there, and she’ll come down much more easily....

glittermixed: to tell my kids about how my first apartment in NYC was so small, I had to brew coffee in the living room. And then since whoever comments on our future internet speech family vlog will be like, “U R SO DUM THERE WERE PPL WHO DIDNT HAVE LIVIN ROOMS AT ALL AND CLD SHOWER AND SLEEP IN BED @ THE SAME TYME” And then I’ll be like, “I don’t really think that’s what people in the...

Pork loin roast is too lean for the slowcooker. Not sure how that’s possible, since you can slow-cook fucking chicken breasts, but oh well. Trust the internet. I mean, it’s fine. But they were right. I burned my arm on the inside of the 500 degree oven. We have burn cream in the house because once, on a night much like tonight, I did something similar and Tanner ran out to get me...

I bought a pork loin roast yesterday at Whole Foods. It was on sale, and better on the animal happiness scale than other comparably priced options. And the butcher said it would work in the slow-cooker, that it wouldn’t fall apart like pulled pork. That all sounded good. I haven’t eaten this yet, I don’t know if this is going to turn out bad. I realize it already sounds like...
I had mini-food poisoning last night and then I ate too much stomach-comfort food for lunch (and five Thin Mints) and now my stomach hurts. STORY OF MY LIFE. In metaphor form. Metaform.
