On Three Stories About Women and Tennis

I had no idea John Jeremiah Sullivan, a man who is living proof that writing well is the sexiest thing anyone can ever do, wrote about the Williams sisters. It's like a perfect storm of things I love. THANK YOU EMMA!

On The Best Time I Accidentally Attended a Teenage Orgy

This is freaking BRILLIANTLY written. I think it is one of my favourite pieces of writing on all of the Hairpin actually. Buying the book right now.

On The Best Time Justin Bieber Made Me Cry

Can I HIGHLY RECOMMEND The Love Song of Johnny Valentine to read, in regards to the Beiberish phenomenon, if you're into that sort of thing? It's a really good novel! And also, The Cultural Significance of the Child Star, if you are wildly unemployed and pop-culture nerdy?

On Friday Open Thread

@chevyvan Oh I'm so sorry. That sucks. Look, I know this might not be the best of all advices (hey 'pinners, say responsible things!) but sometimes man, you've just got to take the weekend off your relationship, go to that wedding, get pretty drunk, maybe say some dumb stuff, dance like nobody's watching and be sloppy as hell. I did this on the day a long-term relationship broke up and it was the only way. Oh, the photos. Speaking of which: also, Visine.

@blueblazes As with all things, I tried to restrain myself, then binged on it immediately until it was all gone. Gone!
