Phew, this has been a bear of a week at work. Actually it's been a bearish three weeks (office-wide scrambling to finish projects in advance of someone's retirement). I'm treating myself to curly fries and root beer for lunch, and I plan to sleep SO MUCH this weekend.
@DoMark The LSAC is honest to goodness an evil entity. Solidarity.
One thing I would like to see more of on the Hairpin is pictures of Jia's dog. (Emma, do you have pets? Can we see pictures of them too?)
/slash was that a creepy request?
@alliepants yeah, her writing struck me the same way! It's not always for me, or what I'm looking for, but it seems like a long road from there to writing really over-the-top nasty comments about it.
First of all, those shiny pants offend me.
Second of all, if I never stopped wearing Doc Marten Mary Janes (1998-present), is that normcore or lazycore or ??
@or Elsa! Yep. A friend of mine gently suggested that "being in the moment" was a better way to spend the few seconds I spent taking pictures of a concert a few years ago, and I was so annoyed. I couldn't put my finger on it at first, but you're exactly right - I get to decide what kind of moment I'm in!
Has anyone else noticed that Sarah Miller's pieces seem to get really vitriolic responses? (Not just from the one-off/burner-account commentariat, although that does seem to be a sizable population interested in criticizing her writing.)
I want to sit down and have tea with this woman and discuss all the many ways I can incorporate more avocado into my life. I would also be open to having Claudia Gonson join us, because I have a similar desire w/r/t her (except instead of avocados I want to talk about feminist theory).
Does anyone have any thoughts about why the smell of lavender makes me queasy? I hate the way it smells, and I've been given to understand that this makes me very weird.
