On "House of Cards," Episodes 1-3: Bloggers With Their Wine

@hockeymom I love Russo, but only because he strongly resembles one of my very best friends, down to his mannerisms and way of carrying himself. I have to root for him because of that, even though he doesn't seem to have much interest in really getting his shit together.

On My Unrealizable Postmodern Novel

@Bunburying I hate to say it, but so would I. I kind of like the idea.

On The Killer Crush: The Horror Of Teen Girls, From Columbiners To Beliebers

Columbiners are a thing? Because long ago, in the days before Tumblr, when Myspace was first spreading its wings, I was a Columbiner. There was no word for it then, just 'that weird goth girl', but boy, I loved me some Eric and Dylan (I preferred Eric, but loved them both).

I was simultaneously excited by the fact that they had KILLED ACTUAL PEOPLE and certain that had I been in either of their lives during high school, I could totally have made them happy. This is the exact kind of thinking that prompted me to have many very disastrous relationships, including, most recently, one with a severely disturbed Iraq veteran.
