    Re: the Hairpin creepy estate jewelery: I lost it when I read “He’d be scarier if he didn’t look like Wolverine eating popcorn.”

    (the Spiders in a Box link is broken; from the description I found this)

    I am loving the “Handy Rules”. I wonder if something like this exists somewhere for the non-mad-but-perhaps-just-pushing-the-envelope-scientists among us…

    Cloverfield (2008) Scariest moment: The tunnel part. “Okay, just to be clear here, our options are: die here, die in the tunnels, or die in the streets. That’s pretty much it?”

    Clearly, I need to watch this.

    Dark & Stormies are super popular right now but I’ve yet to have one that’s tasty. And I like basically all the ingredients in them. I’ll have to try the recipe myself and see what all the bars around me are doing wrong.

    That cupid ring is horrifying. (Also ditto to Terri’s observation; that is some truly inspired copy.)

    You…don’t strike me as the “whimsical little gnomes” type. You don’t strike me was the “whimsical little” anything type.
