On "A sense of entitlement in women was associated with stronger endorsement of benevolent sexism"

I hope their research included extensive viewings of Bridezillas and internet familiarity with women who demand "push presents," because yeah, that'll validate your theory right there.

On The Outsiders: Where Are They Now?

I wish I could send this to my seventh-grade English teacher. And also apologize for stealing my copy.

On Today's Bleak Read

I cannot believe none of these people are in jail. What the actual FUCK.

On Ask a Glutton: Your Perfect Dinner Party

@Biketastrophy The America's Test Kitchen cookbook Slow Cooker Revolution is basically the best thing in the world. Everything I've made from it has been amazing, except for one lentil soup (which was my fault; lentils do not need to cook for ten hours!). There's also a great recipe for caramelizing onions without standing over the stove sweating forever. I recommend it most strongly.

On "Ouagadougou" Is the Hardest Word: A Day at the Spelling Bee

@HeyThatsMyBike That's the same word I got wrong in the fourth-grade spelling bee. My mom still makes fun of me for it occasionally. Twenty-three years later.

On Sports Bras vs. Sitting Down

@Absurd Bird Shock Absorber is also a good brand, but my favorite is this one from Anita. I usually wear it under a top that also has a built-in bra, and together that gives me enough support for running. Figleaves.com and Herroom.com are really good for larger sizes.

On Mattel Continues Being Mattel

@TheLetterL Because the girls who wear glasses need a goddamn doll! (Even though they totally covet Samantha's insane flouncy dresses and brass bed and Felicity's Christmas dress OH MY GOD I HAVE TO GO FIND MY DOLLS.)

On Tina Fey at the Paley Center

@katiemcgillicuddy I often think of that story she tells about how Amy Poehler was doing a scene, and taking it some place dark or sexual or weird and Jimmy Fallon started yelling at her to stop because he didn't like that a GIRL was doing that, and Amy just turned to him and hissed, "I don't give a FUCK if you don't like it." I aspire to that level of Amy Poehler-ness in my life at all times. And now I must buy the audiobook.

On An Extremely Specific Pop Culture Update

@Sorbee She's on another show (The Following, on Fox), so probably very little of her.
