I love writing but I'm bad at writing about me.

On Men Explain Cars To Me

These were (mostly) hilarious. Some of those guys... just... no.

I had read this awesome article once basically pointing out all the stuff you find problematic about Cars (Why do the cars have no drivers? Why do their doors open? Where did roads come from and why do they have monuments that look like car parts?) but I can't find it anymore :(

Anyway, thanks for helping me realize that maybe a small segment of men on dating sites aren't that terrible.

On How To Write An Email

This is all so important but her misspellings (or deviations from the way that I write) are making my eye twitch. Why don't people use commas for direct address? "Hi, Mary" looks so much better than "Hi Mary"!

Okay, I'll stop.

On Like A Fox

@clone I don't know, from what I've read, the way he spoke about his mother (which might be an extension of how he sees women in general) made it seem like he didn't really identify with her, or with being Malaysian.
I could be way off base. Maybe he was struggling with his racial identity, and that's part of why he was so angry about being rejected by white girls.

On Weekend Roundup / Open Thread


This is all really good advice, thank you! This friend has always kind of been this way, and obviously I'm willing to talk her through any sort of really important transitions and Big Life Things, but I'm just not willing to make her feel important by acting as if I'm less than she is. I have a feeling that this kind of stuff will continue, but I think I'll just sort of have to ride it out/hope for a fade-out until she realizes that she needs to be a better friend.

How many eyerolls until you decide it's time for a friend breakup? I love my friends and think they're great, but I also think there's space in a friendship to talk about things other than how great your friend is, and, well, I know someone who disagrees.

@isabelle bleu I saw that in the Ann Friedman Weekly, and I might just sign up for it!

On Love & Gina Prince-Bythewood

Loved this! I had looked up Prince-Bythewood the other day to see what else she had worked on since Love & Basketball, and this interview helped fill in the blanks - she puts a hell of a lot of work into her screenplays and such! I would love to see her putting out movies more often, but I'd rather see passion projects like this one that she put so much work into.
