On Weekend Roundup

@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that)
Hey, I always read your lists even if I don't reply.
Good things: my cousin came to town and we just had lunch and she met my boyfriend. I went out with friends twice this week and bindge- watched Call the Midwife.

Jia, Emma, the past few weeks have been really good Hairpin weeks. I just wanted to say that too :)

On In Sickness and in Health, But Mostly in Sickness

wow, "What We Have Going for Us" is one of my favorite pieces on The Hairpin ever, and I just read that it was yours too. This was also really good and beautiful and hard. Thanks for sharing-

On La Malinche, La Llorona, La Virgen: My Mother's Ghost Stories

@Mariajoseh thank you for writing this! I found it very interesting because some aspects of your experience are so different from mine, even if I'm Mexican and was raised catholic, but "la madre, la virgen, y la puta"? Oh, yes. Every Mexican woman has to deal with that.

On La Malinche, La Llorona, La Virgen: My Mother's Ghost Stories

@up cubed I'm Mexican and very white, I've been called güerita all my life. I just had never heard o read the term weta with a "t", but maybe it's more a chicano thing.

On La Malinche, La Llorona, La Virgen: My Mother's Ghost Stories

This was great, The Hairpin's really good today!

But pleaseee, the typo in the title me está matando. Should be "Malinche" and, as someone said on Facebook, I think it should be "wera" and not "weta".
