On 917 People Who Are Hotter Than Benedict Cumberbatch

@Cumberwho actually not the creators of the hairpin but lovely ladies nonetheless. the ladies at the toast, Nicole Cliff, write at the awl and here but wasn't the creator. that was Edith. this whole comment section reminds me why I don't read The Hairpin anymore.

Thank you for this! It's been a difficult thing to process, my go to response is rage, and I've been struggling with how to talk to my own child.

On The Look of Flimsy Stained Glass

@E I always hate it when people give step by step instructions complete with lovely photos and have the nerve to do it differently than I would do it! I mean, why did she deviate from the way I did this in second grade? Is she from Mars or something?
