On What My Mom Wants Me to Blog About Instead of This

@Julie the T My mother has told my dad he should read USA Today instead of the local paper on his laptop because she's convinced the local paper has given his computer viruses.

On Every Dress Worn by Best Actress Oscar Winners, 1929-Present

I love Jane Wyman's in 1949 -- it looks really glamorous on her, and for the new ones, Marion Cotillard's dress in 2008 was so cool. You can really see when the stylists and entertainment press (who are you wearing, darling?) really entered the picture. No more "unknown" or "off the rack." Not as much fun for the viewer -- do yourself a favor and look up Sissy Spacek in 1981. Sweet baby Jesus, it's bad.

On Best D.C. Metro Stations to Name a Baby After

If you're between stations, you could name your kid Orange Line (or whatever line you're on). May want to avoid connector buses.

On The Books of Our Childhood Summers

@sophia_h I was just talking to a friend the other day about books that made us cry. For me, it was A Bridge to Terabithia and Where The Red Fern Grows. Oof, so sad.
