By Jinxie on Powerful New Kindle Update Deletes All Your eBooks

@deepomega I understand perfectly well why non-Apple products exist, but I had an iPad and an Amazon account and wanted to read e-books and didn't want (or need) to buy an additional electronic device just to read said e-books. So, you know, why not use what I already have?

That's 'Onald Fagen
She don't remember the King of Soul
It's hard times befallen
The sole survivors
She thinks I'm crazy
But I'm just growing old

By Aatom on How To Lie To Kids About Santa

My mother was not very good at this. She would include presents from my dog as well. And it didn't take very long before I was like "HEY WHY THE HELL DOES SANTA HAVE THE SAME HANDWRITING AS SHAWNA?" (Yes, I named my dog Shawna, because as a young gay white boy I wanted to get a head start on the whole wanting to be a sassy black woman thing.)

Last night, chez rimy:

Me to boyfriend: "Why do you want kids?"
"Why? What, why do you think?"
"You tell me!"
"Because I want to... continue my bloodline?"
"Um, ok? How many do you want?"
"SIX??!! oh my god."
"Six sons."
"... .... All sons??!? SIX?"
"I want to have my own mafia."
"Are you fucking kidding me."

When I compare Choire's reign at Gawker to Juan Peron's I only mean it in an affectionate way.

Scarlett is a Slytherin and Ashley is a dreamy-headed Ravenclaw. It was just never going to work out between them.
