On "I'll Be Your Wingwoman": Two Friends Walk Into A Bar

Oh my god, you guys! So cute! Also, I'm really happy to see I'm not the only one who goes to Christmas model train exhibits.

On The Vicious Trademark Battle Over 'Keep Calm and Carry On'

@deepomega Yes! I LOVED Blackout, and I've been waiting for ages for All Clear to come out in paperback.

The Night Watch by Sarah Waters is another good one.

On The 13 Worst Things I Found on Craigslist While Looking for a NYC Sublet

@Choire Sicha I think it might be smart marketing. I'm now so crippled with worry over who will actually wind up caring for the cat that I'm going to have to take the sublet myself and commute to Philadelphia.

On When Pets Die

Could not agree more... My last cat, who I had from age 13 to 32, was a diabetic for the last 5 years of her life. I gave her 2 shots a day, and I can't tell you how many people treated me like I was a lunatic for making that commitment to her. So I cut them off - and I have to say that while I sure did miss my cat when she finally died, I certainly didn't miss any of those people.

On When Pets Die

I'm in the same boat with my old cat. She's getting up there and now her body is breaking down before her mind, and I'm terrified I'm going to have to make that decision that no one wants to make.

Ugh. Can't talk about this anymore.

On Six Things I Have Inadvertently Consumed

The thought of salty jello is horrifying; you have my sympathy. It makes me think the foul Purina "Sardines in Aspic" food that my cat loves... I think she only eats it because she's pure evil, and she likes to laugh at me gagging and retching as I dig it out of the can.
