A friend and I were just discussing how period shits were omitted from all teenage info-sessions on dealing with your period, leaving us both to believe something was seriously wrong with our individual bodies. I want to petition to have period-shits added to the 5th grade group convos.
I DID want to know this! Thanks, Internet!
OK I discovered yesterday that ChrisRoberts@facebook did an amazon review of Choire's book, and it was typically Chris. Then I discovered that he has given something like 250 books 1-star reviews, and zero books 3 or 4 or 5 star reviews.
The dictionaries *should* include the "new" definition (that actually isn't all that new); they're all descriptivist. "Literally" isn't being misused, it is being used differently, and the number of times it has led anyone to be genuinely confused about the speaker's message can be counted on one hand.
Preps, jocks, hicks, choir, band, drama, trash, and maybe hippies? Though all the hippies were in drama, so that might not count as a separate category. I believe the difference between trash and hicks were that trash lived in town, and hicks lived out. Choir was cooler than band, though band was cooler than I think it is lots of places. Drama was of course the coolest, but don't tell the preps that.

I was a combo deviant "skater"/jock and I went to high school in the late 90s. We primarily had rednecks, preppy kids, nerds, and deviants (AKA "skaters," regardless of whether they owned a skateboard). Jocks overlapped all of those groups.

1) Saying hi to all the kids who keep yelling out to me?
2) Walking home?
3) Walking to a friend's place?
Maybe I'm shitting on things just to shit on them, but this seemed really bougie.
@franceschances I know, right. And when the first movie came out I remember all these male critics complaining that the movie was even made in the first place. OMG a movie starring women that are kind of too old for me to want to fuck and also it's aimed at an audience of women? OMG the nightmare
I think my favorite thing about SATC, and the reason I will always defend it, is just how ANGRY it makes men that a woman they deem unfuckable was the star of a show. There's a certain kind of man who just cannot help himself from shouting "HORSEFACE" when Sarah Jessica Parker is mentioned. It makes them so angry that no one consulted their penis! How dare it be ignored? And for ignoring these dicks, I will always love SATC.
