Update: Children's books (possible TW, pregnancy)

UPDATE: THANK YOU SO MUCH! You guys are just the fucking best. Your suggestions are all wonderful, and I really appreciate that time you took to write these out for my sister and her babe. I’m so excited to read to him/her! Hugs and kisses and kittens to you all!

Big changes at Gawker...

I know a lot of people will be sad to see Millihelen go. I’m wondering a bit about the fate of seemed like quite a few people weren’t into the direction that took, but I dont’ know what their pageviews looked like.

Les Revenants/The Returned...returns. Les Revenants/The Returned...returns.

I’m a little late on this, but I didn’t see it discussed anywhere else (I searched). The French version (read, the good version) of The Returned will premiere season 2 on the Sundance channel on Halloween. I’m super pumped they finally got the production delays handled, even though Victor (though still creepy looking)…

Emmy saltiness (mostly GoT related)

So, tons of good stuff to be happy about on the Emmys...Viola Davis and Uzo Aduba KILLING acceptance speeches, seeing Tracy Morgan up and about, etc.

What is your topic where you just can't help yourself? What is your topic where you just can't help yourself?

Where you continue to comment and engage commenters even though you know it just ends in hair-pulling frustration for you, almost every time. Mine is fitness articles. I actually love the Vitals blog, and the authors who write there. Many of the commenters are good. But invariably anywhere fitness discussion is…

Liquid diet recipes Liquid diet recipes

My dovelettes, long story short, a friend of mine’s mother has a tumor in her throat and will be on a liquid diet for the foreseeable future, and I’m looking for recipe suggestions. I’m basically looking for soups that can be pureed, custards, puddings, etc. The good news is that other than it being liquid, there are…

Help a nail idiot, please.

I am almost 34 (on Saturday!) and I have bitten my nails for my entire life. They are stubby and chewed and generally in a state of disrepair. However, I am a bridesmaid in two weddings coming up (July 17th and August 1st), and I would like to have them look nice, and therefore would like to indulge in my first ever…

...and also for those people who like funny Amazon reviews.

You know, maybe I was naive.

How difficult is it to have a boob seam taken down an inch or so? I got this dress from Modcloth to possibly wear to a shower this weekend, and while I love it on the bottom, the boob seam on the top is super awkward and makes my boobs look smashed and awful. I think this is partially because the seam is so shallow…

I need sympathy/sanity

Over on the Drunkspin post, some guy pulled the "Craft beer guys, buy ladies fruit beer because they love it!" and when I tried to explain that that's bad advice, it ended up with this:

I Used My Creativity and I am Proud I Used My Creativity and I am Proud

Some of you may know that this coming Sunday is National Grilled Cheese Day. Others of you may know that this coming Sunday is the season 5 premiere of Game of Thrones. So I decided that for the premiere I would make a GoT inspired grilled cheese flight.

Minneapolis/Twin Cities Groupthinkers

I need your wise and sage advice!! We're hosting an executive dinner (probably about 15 people) in Minneapolis in April, and I am in Chicago. Do any of you have any good restaurant recommendations for something like this? We're not totally confined to stuffy places, but restaurants with private dining areas would be…

Help me have nice things Help me have nice things

So, I just bought a real person purse (my longstanding current purse is a canvas bag with owls on it and a giant inkstain) from the Kate Spade sale, and I need to know if I should put like leather protectant on it or something. I carry a backpack to and from work, so this would mostly be a weekend/evening purse, but…

Can we talk about this Dr. Nerdlove question? (TW: Chronic Illness)

Ladies and gents, I would like your thoughts on Dr. Nerdlove's answer to the first question. On one hand, if this girl is sexually assaulting him, that's fucking terrible and he needs to break it off immediately. No question about that, but I do believe the way it's phrased leaves some question as to whether or not…

On "turning 30" On "turning 30"

So, I was just scrolling through my Facebook, and I came across this link, entitled "Turning 30: Described in Charts and Graphs". I scrolled through them, and some of them are nice (the one about how many fucks you give, in particular), but most of them are the typical "Haha, you get SO LAME and BORING when you're…

Advertising that makes you embarrassed Advertising that makes you embarrassed

Do you use a product or service whose advertising makes you embarrassed to be a consumer of said product or service?

It's not that cold. It's not that cold.

Let me start by saying that I lived in NYC for 5 years. I am familiar with not only the weather, but with the fact that people have to walk outside a lot, vs. simply getting into their cars and driving to a place where they park and have to walk another 40 feet into their heated work building. I'm not trying to start…

Hormonal BC users: a question

I've been on the same birth control (Microgestin, a generic of Loestrin) since I was about 16. I had debilitating periods and BC helped. I've always had good luck with Microgestin and I don't have periods, pretty much at all.

Help me understand.

What in the fuck is with Hillary Crosley just spoiling the fuck out of shows that aired less than 24 hours ago?
