Everything Is Coming Up Milhouse!

“My feet are soaked, but my cuffs are bone-dry! Everything’s coming up Milhouse!”

I think the importance of having dry pant cuffs is severely understated on the article about this quote on Urban Dictionary. It refers to this event as “unimportant.” Let me tell you, Urban Dictionary, for anyone who has never lived in a place that it perpetually rains six months out of the year – Saarbrücken, Germany, just to pull a place out of the air completely at random – it might seem like dry pant cuffs are unimportant. The truly initiated know differently. There are very few things that drive me to the brink of insanity quicker than a wet pant leg slapping against my cankle.

I’m sure not pissed off about wasting a decade of my life getting emotionally involved in people who aren’t real!” Frankly, it seems like everyone thought it sucked. And it did.

Let This Be Your Thank You: A Review of "The New Right"

When I got wind that my not-husband Michael Malice was writing a new book, and specifically that the book would be about “the new right,” I immediately began salivating. I am perfectly fine with the fact that I have, as I have often put it, embarrassing lady-wood for MM. I adore him. He can basically do no wrong in my eyes. The fact that he was writing a book about the happenings on the right made the proposition doubly exciting for me, as I have struggled to get my head around it for quite some time.
