On For Those Who Have Asked Politely About My "Novel"

damn mislead! If this was on the hairpin I'd be all "OH NICOLE'S MOM." "I'VE MET NICOLE'S MOM." "NICOLE'S MOM IS MY FAKE CHANEL SUIT."

but now I have to make fun of myself making those comments instead.

On A Handy Test for Reddit Users: Are You on the Internet Right Now?

Sure you could find a comment or two I've made that would be held against me if I ran for political office.

But surely the prospect of assembling 496 pages of hairpin commentary would turn off even the most resolute blackmailer.

On What Are The Best Audiobooks For A Road Trip?

the fact that mike dang and his friends read harry potter in the car just makes me love him even more because this was a family road trip tradition for me until book 6.

we had to stop at book 7 because all the (my) crying interfered with the reading.

On Vancouver's Supervised Drug Injection Center: How Does It Work?

I thought this piece was so informative, and thoughtful, and compassionate, and wonderful.

Read a book a while back on similar topics where they explored the InSite situation and at the time the epidemiologist who wrote the book had found that it wasn't working as well as it could have, because there was a stigma of the types of addicts who used it. Like, you would have people who are addicted to heroin who don't want to use the facility because "only junkies do that."

Anyway, it definitely sounds as though it's helping a lot of people now. Ugh, heroin.
