On Please Welcome Jazmine Hughes, The Hairpin's New Contributing Editor

@Roxanne Rholes Ditto! Very excited to hear this. Didn't realize Jazmine is a fellow Conn College (NOT UCONN) alum - that just makes me like her better.

Welcome, Jazmine! Looking forward to new Hairpin stuff.

On 18 Brides in a Year

@j-i-a The difference between how I see marriage and weddings portrayed in the media, and how I feel when loved ones stand up and pledge their love and commitment to each other, is baffling and ridiculous. Thanks for putting it in such lovely and honest words, Jia. Happy New Year!

On How to Enjoy the Airport This Holiday Travel Season

@JillPhill I flew to Sacramento for the first time (on business) a few weeks ago, and was pleasantly surprised. The giant rabbit is amazing - I can't be the only one who surreptitiously looked up on the up escalator to see if it was a boy or a girl.

On Welcome to Ross Douthat's Book Club

If only Jane had not placed a job notice in the newspaper and had simply stayed on at that nice school with the Christian headmaster…

That school had such effective hygiene and discipline programs there too…sigh.

On 917 People Who Are Hotter Than Benedict Cumberbatch

@leonstj It IS all about the voice. I would happily have BC and Rickman read me to sleep every tonight. They could read the phone book for all I care, as long as they keep talking.

On 917 People Who Are Hotter Than Benedict Cumberbatch

Nah, the guy who delivered me was, by all accounts, an unpleasant asshole, so by definition he can't be hot.

And John Mayer isn't hotter than anybody, including Bandersnatch Cumberbund.

On Estate Jewelry: Millennial Octopi and The Perfect Handle for Your Parasol

I want everything, but I would probably push someone out of the way to scrabble at the Caldwell brooch and the sautoir.
