I used to go to my friend's burlesque shows, when she was still doing that. But she didn't get any nakeder than I'd seen her changing outfits before we went out, and I don't really see burlesque as necessarily being about Sexy Naked.

So, hey, rabbit lovers. If you can, maybe consider fostering a rabbit after Easter. As ridiculous as it sounds, there are still people who give rabbits as pets, and there will usually be some abandoned between Easter and early summer. Most animals are more adoptable in home environments, and it's a lower commitment way … » 4/17/14 10:38pm Yesterday 10:38pm

No. It's all fun and games if we're talking about celebrities, but in reality, the odds that Tom Hiddleston is interested are pretty low.

I can certainly understand the annoyance that the list focuses exclusively on American and Canadian authors, but I'm a little confused by the specific objection about The Stand. Is it a novel that would be included so frequently that its absence is bizarre? I wouldn't personally put it on a list of that sort unless it… » 4/16/14 5:31pm Wednesday 5:31pm

1. Because she's an abuser and looking for someone she can manipulate. Guys her own age see through that shit, so she passes on them and looks for someone vulnerable. It's not that different from the reasons a particular sort of loser guy preys on underage girls. » 4/16/14 4:55pm Wednesday 4:55pm

It sounds like the problem here is primarily with custody of the animals, not with the fact that their owner left a provision in her will to provide for them. Unfortunately, I suspect at least some of the cats wouldn't be alive today if they hadn't had a trust to provide for them - that's a fairly common result when an … » 4/16/14 4:33pm Wednesday 4:33pm
