on being a girl. in a game.

Being a girl is hard. We practically bleed to death on a monthly basis. More things can go wrong with our reproductive parts than you can shake a stick at, and finding clothes that fit when we feel fat is a choice between looking like a couch and looking like someone that should be standing

talking to the stars

Be nice to the girl with the stars on her head! This is how The Running Green Girl interrupted me when I started complaining about some randomly offensive body part while trying on clothes this last weekend.
