On Week Disliked

I mocked Drynuary, mixed wine, beer and liquor in the same evening, then fell off a curb and knocked my two front teeth out. I blame this endless week.

On Girl Powder: A Cultural History Of Love's Baby Soft

Now eagerly awaiting the cultural history of Designer Imposters. My teenage was scented with fake Poison!

On Girl Powder: A Cultural History Of Love's Baby Soft

As someone who was a teen in the '80s, those fedoras, neon leather skirts and suspenders on girls didn't read as tomboy at the time (at least not to me who coveted that look). That was popular/cool-girl gear, and therefore nothing but feminine.

On Why We Need "Enlightened"

@Trilby I recently discovered that The AV Club has Enlightened recaps with a active group of commenters (not that I ever comment there...or here).

On Why We Need "Enlightened"

@matt lewis@twitter Yes, on The Comeback. While I was also a Carnivale fan, I can't forgive the author of yesterday's bit for lumping it in with K Street and Mind of the Married Man. Not the same!

On Why We Need "Enlightened"

I took it as a bad sign that Vulture wasn't recapping the second season. Enlightened is unusual and so compelling because it's rare on TV to see a non-young woman who doesn't have her shit together that's not in the Showtime (Nurse Jackie, Weeds, United States of Tara, maybe not The Big C) vein or who falls into the "married to her job" camp. And for some reason, people don't like seeing that on TV (which makes me more sad).

On Fit Of Pique

Not rampant, thankfully, but shudderbug recently made me reexamine everything.

On We Must Build An Enormous McWorld In Times Square, A Xanadu Representing A McDonald's From Every Nation

The only problem I have with this premise is limiting it to McDonald's. Times Square should also be home to KFC's green chicken curry, Dairy Queen mango sticky rice sundaes, Taco Bell potato and paneer burritos, Starbucks lamingtons, Pizza Hut's multiple cheese-stuffed Asia and Middle East exclusives, and obviously, a pork-and-alcohol-free Cheesecake Factory.

On Ask Polly: Should I Drop Out Of College?

Wait, I'm still stuck on how 10pm-6am is more optimal than 2am-10am. All eight-hour stretches aren't equal?
