sotheresthat asked: Good (?) news, Joy! The Daily Mail is now reporting the mark on Kate's skull to be a scar, not extensions. Seems to be all her hair after all.
Conversations with Relatives
Cousin: Great news! We’re pregnant! Joy: Again? You already have four of them! Cousin: Yes, again. Joy: On purpose?
Because I have an IUD (ladies, despite everything I’m about to write in this post, you want one, trust), it’s really rare that shark week ever airs on my particular station. But when it does, it’s essentially this non-stop shark attack. Remember that SNL sketch about Annual? It’s like that. Only maybe a little worse. This essentially meant that I spent my evening fighting...

Emails with Coworkers
Joy: I’m sorry I’ve been a heinous bitch today. London Coworker: It’s fine, I was also a heinous bitch!

I am, like, the dictionary’s definition of heinous bitch. London Coworker: If we did a random sampling, I...
How much money does Beyonce have in her checking account? At least $100,000, right? Do you think Beyonce and Jay have joint checking accounts? Or does she have her own money and he has his own money and they don’t talk about it? Or maybe they have their own accounts but have one together just to demonstrate their mutual respect? Why is it that when you reach a certain income bracket you...

She’ll happily discuss Season Two of Downton Abbey She’s supportive, but she’ll always tell you...
Last night I had a dream that I was an overachieving high school student from Dillon, Texas. And who was my next door neighbor? Tim Riggings. Obvs. On the day I was packing up my volvo (that’s right, a volvo) to head for my elitist East Coast university, Tim Riggins and I had the following exchange: Tim Riggins: Good luck, College Girl Joy: HI TIM RIGGINS Tim Riggins: Make sure you...

1. I’m more of a retro protester — let’s have a love-in. 2. Let’s lower our dependence on foreign oil by showering together. 3. After we occupy, do you want to occu-PIE?

When all is said and done, you are a bit of an intellect with a...

“It’s such a pretty day, I just want to go home and play. And by ‘play’ I mean watch all my DVR’d tv for the past two weeks.”
We should probably just build an underground place devoid of the internet and...– It’s been awhile since I’ve shared the best of my daily emails with certain people. So here’s a little bit of wisdom from Meg to make up for it.
megsokay asked: I tried to write something with an overtly feminist message on Hello Giggles this week and based on the comments, I don't think some women got it. What should I drink after work to deal with this frustration?
megwhat asked: So I purchased that poncho that you have and so I think from now on whenever we're together we should wear that and be like OH HEY WASPS FROM MAINE. Not a question, more of a general statement.
Weather Vain: Portland, Maine - 58 and Rainy
ofakind: What’s this? Another new feature? We were thinking that because not everyone lives in fall-y New York or sunny L.A.—we feel you: Claire grew up in Wilmington, DE, and I was raised in Peoria, IL—we should highlight places that get a lot less fashion love. So! Without further ado! A biweekly column covering what to wear in a given locale on that day. First up: A wet one in Portland,...
