WHAT TO WEAR WHEN: Slinking Into a P.I.’s Office After-Hours to Tearfully Beg Him for Help Finding Your Husband’s Killer
Accessorize with huge, tragic eyes and tastefully-chosen double entendres. Waterproof mascara might actually be a drawback!
This look is all about the dramatic, glamorous silhouette. Ask yourself: “If I were standing in front of venetian blinds, what kind of shadow would I cast?” If the answer isn’t “devastating,” keep trying!
The geometric shoulders on this Victoria Beckham dress say “I am a Woman” — but the smooth, vulnerable skin of your revealed throat and collarbone say breathily, “Oh, but I’m really just a Girl.” Get his protective instincts on your side, and you can turn this square-jawed patsy backward and forward like a skeleton key! 
The man you’re talking to may not technically be a policeman anymore, because he was kicked off the force for caring too much and not playing by the rules. Call him “Detective” anyway — that’s basic workplace tact.
Try a coat with a soft, heavy fur ruff. You can turn your face into it to sort of hide your tears, while still maintaining soulful, sidelong eye contact under your mink lashes.
Do not mention how your husband was a bloated old philanderer who never appreciated you or treated you like a person. 
Definitely do not mention how the week before he died you took out a million-dollar life insurance policy on him. It will look tacky.
High stiletto pumps make a satisfying clack-click as you hasten away across the rainy cobblestones. T-straps are both practical and leg-lengthening.
A well-dropped monogrammed handkerchief helps people remember you — especially with a subtle spritz of your favorite perfume — but don’t drop it in the wrong place, or you could end up being remembered a little too well. Silencing witnesses is tedious, and an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! 
Should you choose to invite the detective to your house of mourning to discuss your case over drinks, make sure to set the date for a time when you could plausibly just happen to be wandering around in a silk robe and negligée when the maid lets him in. How about Carine Gilson? You can afford it!

Fantastic look at the Satanic Panic surrounding D&D, via r/rpg

It was shortly after tthings like this were being published in the US that I left journalism in the UK. I wasn’t enjoying it very much. The last straw was being asked to write a front page story for a major newspaper that showed that D&D caused Satanism, Madness and Suicide. I said No, and stopped being a journalist.
I tell people that now, and they think I must be making it up. So its nice to see articles like this, and suddenly remember I’m not crazy.

Neil Gaiman is a cool guy.

Last morning in Seattle, so it’s steel cut oatmeal at Lola. I also got the house made donuts, but none survived to photograph.
