Thank you so much to all of the editors and commenters for everything. I’ve only commented a few times because I’m too lazy to log in, but this site has been one of my first stops every morning (and countless times during the day) for the past 3 years. Thanks especially to Kelly, whose weekly Petting Zoos and other sweet and clever posts helped get me through a rough senior year in college, a huge move to NYC from the South, countless job rejections, and eventually the long days of office work.
I will miss this place more than I am comfortable saying out loud. Thank you everyone for being so wonderful and funny and supportive. Kelly, I hope you find another job very soon, and if you would like a strange woman in NYC to buy you a beer, let me know.
If anyone would like to twitter follow/stalk me (as I have many of you), my twitter handle is @MAHGAHN.
Goodbye, sweet blog. You were too precious for this world.
He DOES. It’s set in his hometown of Belfast, Ireland and also stars perfect person Gillian Anderson.
Have you seen Jamie Dornan in the Fall? He is very good at making you feel attracted to a serial killer and then feeling really uncomfortable about it.
Definitely more impressive than the “Happy Birthday Jesus” lights that are up year round in my parent’s neighborhood.
The weird, musical “Alice in Wonderland” adult film from the 70s that I’ve definitely never downloaded nor seen?
That is an amazing group costume! I wish my high school friends and I had thought of that and also that I had had more friends in high school. My best friend and I would shout “I’M FIVE YEARS OLDER AND IN COLLEGE!” at each other though and it never got old.
BRB, I’m gonna go post Teen Girl Squad quotes on her FB page.
Woah, sorry about the huge image, guys. I’m also a little not sorry because LOOK HOW CUTE THEY ARE I DIE
I try not to ship real people, but that Gillian/David AMA is making it real difficult.
The full phrase is actually “The blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb.” So blood refers to a blood pact, or choosing a relationship with someone (or making a blood-bound agreement) is stronger than the ties you happen to have through birth. #truefactsonly
Mother, May I Sleep with Danger?
I’m not sure if this counts as a celebrity dream, but I once dreamed that I was Harry Potter. It was pretty cool until I died on a jungle gym deathtrap and became a ghost who also had a wheelchair. Being ghost Harry Potter in a ghost wheelchair was tough, you guys.
I was also grappling with my sad, unrequited love for Hermione after I became a ghost. I’m a straight women, so this was a really confusing dream overall.
I saw Prince Avalanche at Tribeca Film Festival, and I didn’t really like it. At least half of it is shaky cam, and the other half is shots of random ants, trees, and Paul Rudd’s mustache. I was looking forward to a comedy after the super depressing documentary Bridgroom that I watched earlier in the week, and there were a few funny moments but it wasn’t what I expected.
I think the leprechaun (or crackhead, according to witnesses) was just spotted in the tree. I wasn’t living there at the time, so I don’t know any more than the infamous news segment:
This was beautifully written, Gabe.
Also, this was my tip! I am available to sign any and all autographs and answer questions about
South Alabama, the home of perfect pizza heists and the Mobile leprechaun.
You are a thrifty saint. Thank you! I found another alternative from Oasis:
Polyvore is also good for finding similar pieces of clothing, and you can be super specific in your searches:
Damn it, KCC. I muted your video, so I have no idea what you are saying, but I need your dress. And I found it using my superior Googling skills and general boredom at work, but I can’t afford it. Damn you.
Even though I have a Jeep Wrangler that is at least two feet off of the ground, I always check under my car for ankle-grabbing hillbillies who kidnap you , lock you in a cage, and then hunt you for sport.
I just realized that I’ve been misreading “Aphrodisiac Lollipops” as “Amnesiac Lollipops.”
Well, did you see inkblot Jesus?!
Alternate theory: the cell phone is haunted/secretly murdering people.
He should salt and burn it. Just to be safe.
I was shushed by one of their crew members (Professional Shusher?) while they were filming a scene at Columbia on 118th last month. I wasn’t even talking or mouth-breathing! I was just walking home from work!
Naturally, I will be boycotting this show. Mostly because I am not interested in it, but also because of my new archenemy.
I would rather see the PeeWee suit over the skinned hipster option:

I’m just going to say he’s a farmer.
