By xee on Ask Polly: These Tortured Intellectual Boys Are Torturing Me!

@TATAbox imo it's kind of unfair on people who have actual aspergers to stretch the term to mean "people who are completely self-involved": being selfish is not a medical condition.

Following too close is one of the worst things it's possible for a person to do, and as appalling as the people who do it intentionally are the ones who are just plain not fucking paying attention to how they're driving are probably worse.

If a tailgater pisses me off I give them a good dose of Vitamin Exactly The Speed Limit.

You know how when you write something and people on Twitter are all, "Oh that was awesome, such a good writer?" Those were the pieces Carrie fixed up.

And the ones where people are all, "Jesus christ, is this supposed to be funny, or is it just stupid, or what? UNFOLLOW." Alex and Choire edited those. JUST KIDDING NOBODY EDITED THOSE AT ALL DID THEY?

My only regret is that -- in only writing for CAAF sporadically and unreliably -- I failed to take full advantage of her talents, which I never overlooked.

Goodness knows I wanted to like the series, but most of the actors are full on awful and Lizzie herself is the worst of the lot. I tried episodes at various points in the series, since so many people recommended it, and thought it was embarrassingly bad every time. Alas!

By Annie K. on Will Snor'eastercane Sandy Destroy NYC? This Weatherdude Says "OMG YES"

The Washington Post's Capital Weather Gang won my devotion a while back: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/capital-weather-gang. Less exciting than Choire's guy but richly in love with weather. And more credible.
