On Scandals of Classic Hollywood: Robert Redford, Golden Boy

So this reminds me of watching the Oscars with my mom a number of years ago. RR was giving a speech (Lifetime Achievement?) and I was all - I don't get him. My mom pointed out every woman they showed in the audience and whether they "got" him or not, man do women show how obviously RR does it for them. It took a few years, but I GET him now.

On Beauty Q&A: Cheap Creams, Jeans, and Long Hair Dreams

@RationalHatter I'm also a 36" inseam and I just go to TJMaxx, their Runway stuff (the more expensive brands) always has designer jeans which are always looong. Sure they're more expensive ($60-90ish) than Old Navy or Gap but they are made well and last much longer. It can be a bit hit or miss though.

On Beauty Q&A: Cheap Creams, Jeans, and Long Hair Dreams

For the jeans gals out there,

It doesn't explain about the butt crack issue, but was very helpful in looking for jeans based on the butt. At the end of the post are other links to Plus sized jeans, finding the perfect fit, etc.

On Jokes

@Knowsey And really it's not like you need a lot of jokes, one or two would suffice... heck my fav's are usually from the non-shy 3-6 year olds whose jokes make little sense.

On Jokes

When I tell people who aren't from St. Louis that jokes are mandatory on Halloween they give me the stupid look. I had no idea this was a regional thing until my 20's.

Also, I'm stealing the fish joke.

On It's a Fair Cop

I borrowed the first 4 Song of Ice and Fire books from a friend years ago and always forgot to return them. I finally remembered in Jan and he told me to keep them b/c his brother got him a nice set for Xmas... so accidental stealing turned gift?

Also Profiles in Courage.

Mostly I just get books taken from me and then I see them on friends bookshelves later and have a pang of book grief.

On Scandals of Classic Hollywood: Katharine Hepburn's Trousers

My uncle met Katharine Hepburn while leaning on her fence in New York.

"Boy, you shouldn't lean on other people's fences. You might fall in."

Can you imagine casually waiting/leaning around and hearing that.voice. scold you for leaning on her fence?? I would have peed my pants, but as a good southern boy he said sorry ma'am and walked away bewildered.

On AHP, What's Actually in Your Handbag Right Now?

In college I always carried a mini stapler in my bag, sometimes things just NEED to be stapled, you know?
