New Video from Allie Brosh

It's called "How to Put Yourself Inside of a Coat." I'd say it's Robert Benchley-esque, except I've never actually seen the short movies he made, so I don't know.

She also has a new post:

I spent the rest of the evening in a hyperglycemic fit, alternately running around like a maniac and regurgitating the multi-colored remains of my conquest all over my grandparents' carpet. I was so miserable, but my suffering was small compared to the satisfaction I felt every time my horrible, conniving mother had to watch me retch up another rainbow of sweet, semi-digested success: this is for you, mom. This is what happens when you try to get between me and cake.

This reminds me of a similarly-triumphant moment of my childhood that involved copious vomiting, except with me it was mayonnaise sandwiches and a mother who didn't believe me when I told her at the National Geographic lecture that I was sick and wanted to go home.

I read that cake post on Friday. I had just consumed a few Friday night beers and that post damn near killed me. The sequence where she slowly approaches the cake, still in disbelief that there is nothing to stop her, and the end when her mother walks in to see her finishing the last of it almost broke a rib. I love how her mother doesn't have a trace of anger on her face, she just looks disappointed and shocked.

Hi cool site, I found your website when I was doing some investigation on some methods to enhance my web log. I was simply wondering what spam software you utilize for comments because I get lots on my blogs.

she's kind of pretty, and in black and white. I think these things make her seem more charming than she actually is.
