On Is This How You Feel About Your Tattoo?

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.

On Grimes, "Genesis"

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.

On Not a Thanksgiving Mix Tape

@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.

@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.

On Addendum to the Modern Meanings of Flowers, Muammar Gadaffi Edition

Presumably, the title of her book refers to this experience.

On Save the Dates, Boston and LA

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?
