@jpjernigan "Her vodka is made of vodka."@guan It's the amateur singer's version of the Lucia di Lammermoor mad scene. Lots of room for improvisation.@katelinnea Hello, New Hampshire, that is just wrong.Writers to @timesletters have a great sense of humour http://t.co/0fyCbp1oPg
Retweeted by June Thomas@guan Oops, turns out it's "heaven's command," not Danes'. I've been singing it wrong for years. http://t.co/nrkL8sz1Tg@guan In the immortal words of Adele Dazeem: Let It Go! (Now I'm singing, "When Britons first from Danes command, arose, arose, arose ...")@katelinnea Now all I want to do is research Flume Awards.The greater you are, the more articles they take from behind the paywall when you die.
Retweeted by June Thomas@katelinnea Ooh, yes! And for later in the country's history, In the Footsteps of Mr. Kurtz is amazing. http://t.co/yvocxdjO16@katelinnea What were you reading that evoked the Congo? (Tyrion I can guess.)
MT @RachaelBL: Portland is either paranoid about #peepee or bad at math. @laurahelmuth is here to set things straight http://t.co/XuT0vcIgUg@jpjernigan We talked about that on the Culture Gabfest last year.@BriefWit @winterjessica @NoreenMalone Stay-at-home mothers!@jpjernigan A chavette? (Also a v. classist construct.)On this week's Double X Gabfest, @winterjessica, @NoreenMalone and I talked confidence, SAHMs, and Basic Bitches: http://t.co/cEIN6wds2V@InmanMatt @DoubleXMag Ta!@neiltwit @tballw32 And to be clear, we're not talking anything like '50s-style strict "rules." More varieties of presentation.@KBAndersen You're right, of course, but it's tiresome to always hear, "Be patient, it'll come." The time for justice is always now!@daretoeatapeach TRUTH!@daretoeatapeach @winterjessica Thanks for correcting me on the "mommy blogger" point. That'll teach me to assign labels without reading.@KBAndersen But now they're stereotyping the other way.@tballw32 I actually think it might be coming back. For people my age, it's uncool. Lesbians in their 20s are more into it.@iantDC Agreed.@tballw32 Yep, Big Boo is mentioned in the piece.@iantDC Oops, that was a bad link. I meant to link to this: http://t.co/R06IwhRfA1@CatDudeScott @Slate It's true, there are less femme lesbians on talk shows. She's talking scripted television.In other words, why are there no butch lesbians on television? http://t.co/FtLI7EWE78All the lesbians are femme, all the butches are straight, and Hollywood isn't brave: http://t.co/FtLI7EWE78@saywhatagain @dankois @winterjessica @NoreenMalone I'm guessing yours are a little longer than the ones they meant.@dankois @winterjessica @NoreenMalone If there had been a question about having a DC fountain in your home, things would be different.@winterjessica @NoreenMalone I scored 9, which means I'm totally NOT basic. And if it wasn't for my lot of the Chipot bowl ...Here's @junethomas, @noreenmalone, and me talking confidence, SAHMs, and Basics. http://t.co/xgGOoENRwR

@paulwiggins Ah!@paulwiggins What are the bound volumes?I told you he was nice. He's letting me try them on. #glassholecestmoiA (nice) guy at my table is demo-ing Google Glass to his (nice) pal. Still tempted to yell, "OK Glass, self-destruct."@fmanjoo Artisanal Manjoo.@Slatefr will soon be changing its name to NousDebunkons.fr@grossdm Technically, that's a #connecticutproblem or perhaps a #problemofthe3percent
A lovely piece by @whitneyjoiner on the gay dad she never really knew: http://t.co/OWV1p1PCxL@BriefWit @nytimes Ooh, thanks. I don't usually read the science section.Brittney Griner loved Baylor, but its anti-gay policies hurt her and, ultimately, the school, by @evindemirel: http://t.co/a8BFc09aal
@poniewozik I allow 30 minutes overrun, but THAT EPISODE went 40 over. Came back from UK and had to buy on iTunes.

Go Suomi!Finland's graphic Tom of Finland postage stamps are real and SPECTACULAR: http://t.co/qgHjsFBaV6
@shaynamalka @miriamkrule @sbreger PS I know they're not Srugs. Stitches?@shaynamalka @miriamkrule @sbreger ALL I want to do is watch. Hoping someone needs congratulating soon so I can say Mazel tov like a Srug.@satopol Ah, the Russian soul!
Obviously not the news we'd hoped for: Senate Press Gallery has denied our #presspass application, won't renew Lyle's. Next up: the appeal.
Retweeted by June ThomasIt's toilet day on @SlateOutward. If you're interested in lavs, don't miss The Big Necessity, by @rosegeorge3: http://t.co/R95TaVBiN1Sex-segregated public restrooms are a relic of Victorian paternalism says @tedtrautman: http://t.co/FCM5QYnnnhI just asked @miriamkrule the equivalent of "Have you ever seen Friends?"

Too self-serious (though ultimately silly). Despite the presence of the great GA.
@sarapekow A week? The word for that is unusual. Night before = typical.@JimMcCormickH I don't mean that they SAY IT explicitly!@JimMcCormickH We do ... when we're not making a point about the straight media!@GingerGibson Yes, but ... 1) he was active in Freedom to Marry; 2) it's still pretty new (and politically useful); 3) it's kind of true!@SebastianNebel @juliaturner I don't know the answer to the question, but that's some pretty impressive pattern recognition at work!@caitlyngranath I'm a little relieved that I wasn't there that day and thus avoided potential embarrassment.And, future anthropologists, this is what web journalists wore to the office in 2014. http://t.co/1btOMywnBBCan Slatesters tell the difference between lemon and lime? http://t.co/1btOMywnBB
@thesurfreport And how!I love this piece by @McKenzieFunk (and not just because we once studied Russian together): http://t.co/DktferIQDL@lahoare I take responsibility.@NickBaumann @jackshafer The Hamish Mafia are the folks behind Scotland's independence referendum.

@dowdyism In a fit of insomnia I listened to a whole bunch of Pen Addict podcasts last night, and I paid for it this morning. Literally.
@elgray I just finished BUSTED, and the Phila. Daily News is officially my favorite newspaper. I guess that means I should read it now.I mean--gasp!--there's parking and everything.Visiting the new Brooklyn Whole Foods for the first time, and suddenly my corner bodega doesn't seem so well stocked.
@Mike_Freedman @AdamBKushner Oh, believe me, it looks delicious.@AdamBKushner @Mike_Freedman I've heard of them--didn't know they looked like that.@katelinnea The only sports scores I get are for my least favorite team from my least favorite sport!@AdamBKushner @Mike_Freedman What is that?
