On The Bog People Were Waiting

I used to be really, really afraid of mummies. When there was something on the History Channel about mummies, I just couldn't bear to watch - and believe me, HC was our most-watched channel, so switching was not done lightly. If I saw even a glimpse of an ad for a show about mummies, I would have trouble sleeping and go sleep at the foot of my parents' bed.

When I was in college, I decided I wanted to deal with my fear, so I took a class on human bones. And guess what? Now I am the creepiest creep ever, and I study human remains. I even worked in a room of 60 mummies; I kept hearing a noise and thought it was a friendly mummy ghost, and was sorely disappointed when maintenance fixed the windy, leaky window.

On How Did Pumpkin Become Beloved? Labor, Nostalgia, Refreshment And White Women

I love pumpkin spice but hate coffee. Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte is probably the best item not on the menu, and my local Sbux looks at me in confusion every. single. time. I order it.

@Tom McGeveran Pretty sure it's just pumpkin spice - the same as you'd add to a pie.

On Cat Man Jackson Galaxy On Dead Cats, Internet Celebrity Cats And Being A Cat Freak

This was incredible. Every word. I wish I could go hug my cats right now, but I can't because they are in another country and they won't let me hug them for more than a second anyway.

On Are We Not Each A Customer Whilst We Are Using The Restroom?

@Faintly Macabre Exactly - where in Europe did he find this wondrous system of toilets??? I only have a closely-guarded system of pubs, bars, free museums, and darkened alleys at my leisure.

On Are We Not Each A Customer Whilst We Are Using The Restroom?

@SidAndFinancy British people think American toilets are gross because of the lack of proper walls. As an American living in Britain, I find them 100% correct.

On Ask Polly: The Eventual Death of The Universe Is Making Me Anxious

LW2: Oh man, I've known that girl. Leaving the LW and his grossed-outedness alone, that's the girl who doesn't feel like being creeped on at one stage of drunkenness and then decides it's ok at a later stage, and the person we should feel bad for is her quite reasonable friend trying to steer her away. I think LW shouldn'a tried to bring her home with him after that because she's clearly not in a mind to make good decisions.

On 'The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' Is My Favorite Movie Of 2012

@sunnyciegos You want an Indian movie that isn't super kitshy post-colonial love story? A movie about real issues in India? Maybe Bollywood could do such a thing if they weren't so obsessed with making love stories where the plot is boy meets girl --? complications --> wedding.

On Why Does Pret A Manger Think Americans Are Stupid?

I live in London. There are good sandwiches here because there are lots of veggie options, and also like half of them you can get grilled on the spot; grilling makes everything like a million times better.
