@ronswansonluva welllllll I think the way you phrased it there may have been a little... insensitive? "vanity sizing" kind of implies that the rest of us just want to feel good. I'm sure that's not how you meant it, but dude, you can alter clothes smaller or shorter. You can't alter them bigger.
@mary_garth Ooh, I hadn't thought of that, but yes. When I was doing research in college I often found one book I know I needed, and then explored others in the same area. Fortunately I've blocked that shit out for the most part. **shudder**
On Help, a Direct Mailing For a Cleaning Service Actually Worked On Me And I'm Worried It Will Ruin My Relationship
Meaghan, you are The Best Blogger.
@garli WHAT even is that pull quote. I am not reading this article, I'm too happy for a Monday
DUDE. I went to Madewell for the first time this weekend and their sizes are HUGE. Like, I am a regular sized person, 8-10. But I couldn't wear any of their size 8 dresses, they were all too big. For the record I have not worn size 6 since middle school, so this was very confusing. Of course I am also gargantuanly tall so they were way too short, but that's neither here nor there.
@Ester Bloom Sorry Ester! I appreciate you! But the billfold comment section != my therapist's office sooooo I don't wanna get too real.
You know what? Fuck Gone Girl. That book is a pile of shit. Burn all copies everywhere on an altar to Roxane Gay.
I have a lot of feelings about math from which I shall spare the comments section of this article. To boil it down: I used to hate math, now I love math, I have always been good at math, why didn't I see this at the time?
I love this article. Meaghan, your parenting book would be one I would read SO MUCH. Thank you for being a sane person writing on the internet, from the bottom of my heart and with no sarcasm in the slightest!!! PS. I love the picture that accompanies this.
THIS GAVE ME GOOSEBUMPS AND CHANGED MY LIFE THANK YOU NICOLE DIEKER
