That song is the CROWN JEWEL in my workout playlist! I laughed out loud when they all high-fived in the middle of it.
I remember when my attitude about rom-coms changed. It was right after I tried to break up with a boy and he sort of wouldn't be broken up with. Then I went to see Jerry Maguire and I was like ugh, sometimes when a girl breaks up with you she MEANS IT!
@Bunburying Second this! Cross-stitch is supremely satisfying and you can be up and running in 5 minutes. I like a simple pattern to start (monochrome, like these: http://www.pinterest.com/foldanddivide/monochrome-cross-stitch/). There are cool photorealistic patterns but they take FOREVER switching thread colors.
Just try it, I feel like you'll know very quickly whether you like it or not, and even if you buy a pattern and some supplies you'll only be out, like, $10.
I will probably never, ever do or buy taxidermy, but my life is ever so slightly richer for having read this conversation with someone who does. Thanks.
35 in Chicago here. Well, I actually live in the suburbs and commute, which includes a 1-mile walk past 3-5 construction sites and plenty of dudes. In 7 years of commuting, I can count the number of comments I've received on one hand, and most of them have been harmless (not aggressive or obscene) or even sort of nice. It's much more common to get a nod or a "good morning" from a construction worker or any other guy. Am I lucky? A little too old? Are men better behaved in Chicago?
Reminds me a bit of Questlove's piece a couple years ago about racial profiling. I wish White people would just LISTEN. Is Whitesplaining a word? It should be.
If you're down with the conceit of asking dad (which, barf), don't you have to accept that dad has a right to say no, I'd rather you didn't? I think it's rude to take your three friends to ask him an ostensibly serious question and then throw a little fit when he gives you a serious answer.
Also, this makes me want to stream Say Anything.
@adorable-eggplant beat me to it. Somewhere out there is a woman who wants a rock-solid stump full of goodness to grow old with.
Agggh the Christian radio gets me every road trip! Then I'm like, well, maybe if I liked it before I realized it was Christian, I should still like it? But I just can't rock out any more.
Oh, and I've lived in the Midwest for nigh on four-score annums and I do own eucalyptus swag, and to this pie I say, yup, that's us.
Yay! I missed Jane!
@dracula's ghost Oh my gosh, it couldn't be easier. Start a tumblr, invite your readers to share with you, and here they come! (Post some sexy stuff you like, follow other people, etc. to get some followers.)
I couldn't like this tumblr more, not least because it acknowledges women can enjoy dirty pics, too!
