This is great and I want to send it to my boyfriend in less of a "look at the serious questions" kind of way than a "SEE, people HAVE TO share food in a relationship and please give me half of your fries" kind of way
I LOVE Didion and 30 Rock and Jenny Lewis.
There can be this void of the female voice that you don't realize you need until you discover how much it speaks to you. After feeling meh about some books I felt like I should have read by now/love, I've been making a point to just read female authors and I haven't found a dud yet.
And I loved this! And then I saw it was written by Christine Friar who is one of the funniest people on tumblr and just wanted to say yes to all of this.
feeling very blah right now, so this is def applicable
My dad is really into genealogy and convinced we have some royal ancestors (like from the house of Plantagenet or something). My brother took this very seriously as a kid named Henry (and my name is Elizabeth) and believed for at least a year that he was King Henry IX. I don't know how he rationalized that the royal family lived in suburban Florida but it was adorable and usually the first thing I tell his friends.
@Megano! So a rural juror, perhaps?
@baklava! omg. I am so sorry. I love no doubt so much and would not want that song to be tarnished. Especially by a first love! internet hug!
@breccalynn I did that in a relationship kinda and listened to Breakin' Up by rilo kiley. I was not very subtle haha
@daylightspool So, there are some girly-whimsical-fashiony-howtolookcute posts on the hairpin, but I don't see them ever in the "oooh look like this for your boyfriend" way but more of a "this is my jam and I feel like I can do anything in this outfit/hairstyle/makeup/vintage jewelry piece." And I do understand that the whole women feel they have to look good to feel good thing is very patriarchal and I do want to rise against because I hate the concept of it, but sometimes it does feel amazing to wear ridiculous eyelashes and makeup. All I'm saying is I felt amazing as a sexy vampire zombie angry bird for Halloween thanks to Jane's tutorial. And it certainly wasn't meant for the male gaze.
@ChaCha Congratulations. How wonderful.
@contrary YES it looked like there was some Qream at Cam's house (?) when he and Dad from married with children were wrapping presents!?
