On Give It Up For The Little Guy (Or Don't???)

@My Number Is My Address Little kids have trouble keeping their balance. But "It's a subway not a lifeboat" has had me giggling for a good five minutes.

On Twenty-Seven

This is just a perfect piece. I'm 27 and I loathe it. I am not doing well with this whole "adulthood" thing. Make it stop.

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

It looks like a place to vote or write an exam.

On Romance Novels, The Last Great Bastion Of Underground Writing

I'm really glad to see a discussion about romance novels, though I'm kinda surprised this isn't over at The Hairpin? Anyway, I've been slightly addicted to romance for more than 10 years. It's not that I don't enjoy "intellectual" books (I did a degree in English!), but I've always been drawn to romance. I always got a lot of sneers for bringing this up in class. I don't read the Mills & Boon/Harlequin types, I prefer the big lengthy historicals that are often very well-researched and full of historical detail, and well-written to boot. I do consider them feminist writing and that's why I'm proud to say I read romance.

On A Drynuary Diary: Week Two

@roboloki Haha! Noooo, not at all. I feel really sad now because this is quite out of character. Also, I hate my job!

On A Drynuary Diary: Week Two

I just realized I've been doing Drynuary, completely accidentally. I've been too busy/tired with a new job to do anything but sleep.

On Why Yoga Can Be So Irritating (Although You Should Go Anyway!)

I came over from The Hairpin and registered here just to give you all my thumbs up. I love yoga but I do not "get" yoga philosophy and it makes me feel like a bad student for being the only one in the class who gets bored during meditation or giggles when someone queefs. I'm glad to know that at least one yoga teacher is keeping it real.

And contrary to someone above, who I guess doesn't know what BPD is, "a shrink once diagnosed me with borderline personality disorder, which I thought was a bit of a stretch until I realized that, like everyone else, he just wanted to have sex with me" is the best line in the whole piece.
