I have "Justice is what love looks like in public" (Cornel West) tattooed on my left forearm. I get mostly positive reactions to it, with the exception of some who think I think it's descriptive of our justice system rather than aspirational. I love it, and I like the conversations with strangers that it encourages.
On I'm a 41
I got a score of 51 and a brief bout of anxiety about my difficulty with monogamy because of question #17.
I agree, some the questions are inane, but I...DO try to pay for friends' meals a lot, even when I don't have the money. So maybe there's something to it.
I saw her open for Austra at the Echo in LA, and I love love love her. She is weird (I don't use that word lightly) and wonderful.
@Daisy Razor *raises hand* Yup. I laughed out loud because that joke was super relevant to my life.
And then I thought...weird, now I'm old enough that jokes on sites that I like are relevant to my life.
@likethestore I know! Yes!
@The Most Pernicious Woman
Yes, definitely ask around! If your Russian is good enough to call/visit a salon and ask if any of their staff speaks good English, you'll be SO MUCH HAPPIER. I found a pretty normal, very cheap place with an English-speaking hairdresser when I was there and it went just fine. Wish I remembered the name of the place so I could share the love.
Presumably, the title of her book refers to this experience.
@deepomega Good call. I will be there.
Oh my gosh. I just moved to Echo Park--LIKE JUST THIS PAST SATURDAY. Should I go? Will I be the youngest person there? Will I be able to get past my crippling shyness?
