On American Cosmetic Surgery in Dubai

Since he's only coming in contact with Middle Eastern women who want plastic surgery, isn't his viewpoint a little bit skewed?

In my experience, yes, there are of course women who wear designer brands and ridiculous high heels and fancy makeup under their abayas and veils, but I've also met quite a few who throw on the abaya over pajamas or a tshirt and jeans to leave the house.

And it's definitely not true to say that a Middle Eastern woman's focus is entirely on looking good for her husband. Women have varied interests and motivations for their actions, even in Dubai.

On Before Too Long, Everyone You Know Will Be Named Emma

If you are really interested in this kind of thing (I am!), most states have baby name databases and you can see the top 50 names by each race/ethnicity/gender/year. Here is the one for Georgia.

@cosmia Related question: do you have a preferred kind of tea infuser/ball? I like looseleaf tea, I like to make individual servings of it, and I feel unsophisticated with my leaves just floating around, but every tea infuser that I've ever tried gives the tea an unpleasant metallic-y taste. Are there kinds that don't do this?

@MilesofMountains Ah, I like the sound of that. Do you have an example of what that might look like? I haven't had bangs since 3rd grade and I'm a bit nervous about them.
