On The One True Guide To Having Curly Hair

All of this is 100% true, except for the clouds part, because certain clouds may just contain too much moisture, thus ruining the delicate balance that is a curly hair's ecosystem.

On On Hair, There and Everywhere, and Intra-Cultural Shame

@Gilgongo I'm sorry, decent person named Jess! I was going to post a comment to the effect of "LOL, it really always is a Jessica" and then list my favourite Jessica as an exception, but truly, the evil Jessicas have unfairly given you all a bad name. No pun intended.

On On Hair, There and Everywhere, and Intra-Cultural Shame

@hedgehogerie not to pile on or anything, but hi, I'm Italian, and somehow the mother who gave me half of my strong Mediterranean genes does not understand how I can be hairier than she is.
It can definitely be a cultural thing - my fair-haired friends don't get it, but I don't really hold it against them. To each their own, right?

On The Best Friends of Rom Com Heroines, In Order

The spelling mistakes in this made me sad, but can we keep this going as like a continuous power ranking?

On The Hairpin Rom Com Club: My Best Friend's Wedding

@designateddrinker ha, I was just logging in to say it was really only made as a star vehicle for McDreamy, and as yet another movie where Michelle Monaghan is actually in the movie but the advertising for it nearly completely forgets her. Like, look at this poster: http://www.imdb.com/media/rm3620769792/tt0866439?ref_=tt_ov_i she plays the bride in a movie about a wedding, and yet she's just photoshopped in and her name isn't even on it!

On Never Bring Your Boyfriend to Brunch

Now, Michelle, in this clearly fictional story, what you should have done is text "K" instead of "OK." Because "OK" can mean "okay" or it can mean "okay!" or it mean "o-kay..." but "K" definitely always means "hahaha I hate you."

On Never Bring Your Boyfriend to Brunch

@inthepost THIS! Ugh, it happens every time one of my best friends is dating someone, and especially now that some of them are in Serious Grown-Up Relationships, my time with them is either "talk about dumb stuff we shouldn't be saying with the boyfriend around" or "wait until friend to call me as a backup plan because boyfriend is most definitely not able to spend time with her that day."

On Female New York Post Writer Feels Differently Than Other Women

@LilyB I think it can depend on a ton of factors. Some women, through no fault of their own, might just "seem" like easier targets to men? And yeah, some of it is just being in the (right? wrong?) place at the (right? wrong?) time.
I know a girl on Twitter who recently moved to my city and says she gets street harassed "constantly." I would never describe it as "constantly" or say it's terrible, especially compared to some other places (New York sounds kinda rough) but she's from a small town so maybe "constantly" to her just means "more often than never", or it just happens more often to her than it does to me, which is also entirely possible.

On Female New York Post Writer Feels Differently Than Other Women

Awesome juxtaposition of the worst thing ever (this Doree person) with the best thing ever (turning "Mindy Kaling" into a verb.)
