Watch RuPaul’s Drag Race Queens Give 3 Ken Dolls Terrifying Makeovers

I’ll preempt this post with this: I’ve never seen a full episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race. (For some reason, I always felt like Jeopardy! was a better choice, so as a result I can’t even tell Acid Betty, Bob the Drag Queen, Chi Chi Devayne, and—my personal favorite—Dax Exclamationpoint apart.) But after watching this hilarious/awful/terrifying video of the queens (Queens?) giving Ken Dolls a much-needed makeover, I’m seriously regretting not spending more time with them. Booking.com

Honesty, Asexuality, and the Un-Recloseting

1. I can’t talk to my friends about this, because they all think my girlfriend and I have the perfect relationship. We met through Craigslist casual encounters, and started out as fuck buddies. Which was fun! No shame there. Gradually, we fell head over heels in love with each other. She was talking marriage by the fourth month we were together, all that kind of stuff. She was an AMAZING girlfriend who went over and above (weekly cookie care packages! lovely love texts nightly! sweetest letters ever!). I was aRead More

The bright, matte shade, which looked similar to some of the shades in the clothes, also reflected the collection’s slightly ’60s vibe. “The thing is, all these peach, pastel shades are very sweet and girlie, and we wanted to make the girls look tougher and cooler,” said Alexander. And the way she did that was to use a quick trick that could come in handy when you’re doing your own makeup andRead More

Dating Myself

November 2003: I am barely 23, married, and a newly christened mommy to a nursing, doesn’t sleep much, what some would call high needs, six-month-old baby. I have spent the past half-year mostly alone (aside from the man I am married to) because all my young friends are busy drinking wine coolers and generally doing things that do not involve the constant holding of a very small person. I am oh so in love with my baby and my husband, but also pretty depressed with my frumpy, no-fun self. So whenRead More


How To Write A Thank-You Note

My New Year’s resolution! It’s to start writing thank-you letters. I don’t write thank-you letters because I am a terrible person. And when I think about how I don’t write thank-you letters and how that makes me a terrible person, I get this crushing anxiety that totally dissuades me from actually doing anything to change it! (Crushing anxiety would probably be a bit of a melodramatic overstatement, but you know what I’m saying?) So!
