On A Controversial Ranking of Mr. Darcys

@Claudia Sherman@facebook THANK YOU. This is what brought me to the post first (but of course, I needed to know official Hairpin stance on Darcys as well).

On The Witch In All Of Us

Jaya! I had the Good Spell Book too, circa 1998-2000 and boy, was I into it too. I've considered doing the money spell recently- can't hurt, right?

This was great and the idea of the right spell to remove the need for spells is spot on. "Spell" winds up as any number of things now: money, looks, the ability to be witty and hilarious. But then, I was sure, if I had the right spell, it would help let everything else fall into place in my life. Ah, teen hippie magic.

On Ruth Bader Ginsburg: "I had to be told by my law clerks, what's this Notorious."

@Jia Tolentino OH MY WORD. THANK YOU. I knew I would be rewarded with happiness for reading this piece!

On Ruth Bader Ginsburg: "I had to be told by my law clerks, what's this Notorious."

"IF YOU CAN'T HANDLE ME AT MY WORST YOU DON'T DESERVE ME AT MY RUTH BADER GINSBURG" is probably the best of tags and might warrant a tattoo.

On Friday Open Thread

@zeytin I read both, though I admit to checking the Hairpin a bit less often these days. However, I still like looking at the OT here (even though I'm always, always two days late) and you're right, it's a shame that many of the old commenters have almost completely left here. A few of them have changed their Hairpin names too, which probably adds to the "everyone knows each other" vibe. Now that the spamming is mostly under control, I have been coming back here a lot more, because the people are still awesome here (Like you guys!). I hope people either start to return and check in, or a new, similarly awesome 'Pintariat builds up.

@NormaDesmond I'm ALWAYS late to OTs >:( Nevertheless. GO PIONEERS! (or were they The Virgins back then?)

On What Character Are You?

@adorable-eggplant Ha! I regularly think of my partner as the cleaning robot from Wall-E. He just cannot deal with a stray spoon.

I am definitely a hobbit but not a brave one. More like Bilbo in the beginning of The Hobbit and he forgets his handkerchief at home and wants to turn the group around to go get it.

@adorable-eggplant ugh, my resolution was to not buy any shoes in 2014 and it's already bumming me out. SO many sales and amazing deals! But I DON'T NEED NO MORE DAMN SHOES. However, I would absolutely love to justify a life or death reason why I need canary yellow peep-toe heels in Britain, where it rains and I have to walk everywhere. But I neeeeeed them :c

On The Returned Is the Best Show on Television

Also oh god I can't stop listening to the opening track you posted because it's so effing good. But yes, very obviously, I have become that person who tries to convince randos at parties that this show is where it's at and can't even shut up about it on threads because SUCH WOW it is legit the best show I've seen in years and hot damb I watch a lot of tv.
