Totally agree on working from home. Much as it sucks to get up early and shower, do my hair, put on non-sweatpant pants, etc., when I would work from home for weeks on end at my prior job I always ended up staring forlornly at my nice clothes and makeup while I sat unshowered in pajamas in my bed. I also missed… » 8/25/14 1:06pm Monday 1:06pm

I always forget about gymnastics when the Olympics aren't running but damn Simone looks like she's killin it! Also truly fuck Italy. I studied abroad there just a few years ago with a black roommate who was fluent in Italian (meanwhile while I'm actually not Italian, I very much look it but can't say much beyond ciao)… » 8/24/14 10:40pm Sunday 10:40pm

Completely agree on the codependent but don't like each other thing. I also agree their relationships with their adult children are SO weird. I mean, I'm close with my mom and live 3 states away. We talk on the phone weekly, text a few times a week or when something is interesting, and see each about every 2 months. I… » 8/20/14 10:04pm 8/20/14 10:04pm

A girl I went to high school with is a tattoo artist at one of the best shops in our area. I remember back at the end of high school and in the year after, she actually did sort of...test tattoos, if you will, in sharpie on her friends. She bought the giant pack of extra fine tip sharpies in 100 colors and would… » 8/13/14 6:53pm 8/13/14 6:53pm

Trolls are certainly ahead of trollpatrol. I had one strange picture commented to me a little while ago...it wasn't actually problematic in and of itself, but it startled me because it clearly meant the person found a workaround to the picture ban. » 8/13/14 12:09am 8/13/14 12:09am

It's an easy crack at Buzzfeed (because when in doubt, assume every single article on Gawker is a crack at Buzzfeed nowadays...). I don't find it funny, really, but I do think Buzzfeed's line about 'touching the lives of some of our closest relatives in the animal kingdom' is laying it on a bit thick. » 8/12/14 8:59pm 8/12/14 8:59pm

Which Picture Would They Use? #IfTheyGunnedMeDown

As you probably know, following the tragic killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown at the hands of a white police officer (his crime was, of course, being black), there have been riots in St. Louis. But online, a response has launched nationally in the form of the viral social media hashtag #IfTheyGunnedMeDown. » 8/12/14 7:52pm 8/12/14 7:52pm

Ehh I think it's no big deal to have the baby pictures up at an OBGYN office. The parents are giving consent to have them displayed on behalf of their children...just like parents give consent for any medical procedure on behalf of their children....plus, all infants look relatively similar. I don't think I could… » 8/10/14 3:25pm 8/10/14 3:25pm
