I would honestly do this in a heartbeat, but I charge a pretty penny.

Y'know, cuz of the eye candy factor/t&a to go with the stellar brains and wit.

[looks around and laughs uncomfortably with no one

But seriously, I would, as dreary and taxing as filing is, esp if part of the job was idle gossip and fat-chewing to pass the time)

What's the recipe for the cheesecake and what sweetener are you using?

Aw, those turds didn't even name us. Jeez.

And Jessica's line - "
Jessica: What was funny about that was always the feeling they had like, THIS SITE SHOULD CATER TO ME AND ME SPECIFICALLY! Like you could… just stop reading the site if you didn’t like it anymore? It didn’t betray you deliberately."

That's a good point, and yet....how can you love something and not be angry when it changes into something you cannot love anymore, like a site with such a thoroughly shitty format it dissuades you from participating?

(...This place was started b/c of Kinja and the rumor crosstalk would be nixed, wasn't it?

Or was Bots also writing to expand on the idea of a web community being enough to drive a whole blog?)

There is no way I would let someone put me in a car after that or make me deal with people. (Let me guess - they expect you to play one of the de facto/unspoken babysitters of the small children while the parents get hammered, too.)

Lock yourself in your bedroom and say you don't think you can get through dinner without barfing.

When I say "hate" I mean "hateable", not just haterade. I have no memory of pieces that would inspire the masses to say "Look at these assholes, they probably sniff their own farts".

Bots and the other authors who write in hate here lack the wide audience or subtlety of an author writing about wearing a Dries Van Noten top while being "barefoot and wearing ripped jeans (no doubt also high fashion) from the waist down." Or getting interviews from other wealthy couture-consuming fashionites that don't have to work in an office. Too blunt and not preachy or self-flattering enough.

"The Awl (R.I.P.) once called us a hate blog."

I want proof, Dogs. I wanna see that in print and read it with me own two eyes.

That would have been a great second slogan, if not the most marketable one - "Crasstalk: Home of the World's Most Self-Aggrandizing Commenters/Haters."

Does your family stress you out too?

If you will it, Lucky, you barf just enough in front of someone to make them think you're contagious with a stomach bug.

Do it in such a way they know barfing has taken place.

ETA: That said, if your sick for real...sorry to hear it and hope you recover as soon as you have a house to yourself.
