Some pre-Valentine poetic advice

Hi y’all! Ready for your annual reminder of my thoughts on Valentine’s Day? :) 1) Valentine’s Day is a made-up corporate bullshit holiday that puts enormous unnecessary pressure on both single and non-single people! 2) It’s really fucking hard to get a reservation! 3) As Dan Savage likes to point out, it’s kind of high […]

Snappy Hour moved to 6/25

Hey lovebirds, thanks for your patience as I recuperated! I’m doing SO much better these days, as Twitter is my witnesss: I WISH I could have taken a selfie showing y’all how many awkward items I managed to carry up the stairs without dropping/spilling anything. — Virginia Roberts (@askvirginia) June 13, 2014 Anyway, for those […]
