Good lord, this is wonderful.
I am not a fan of Xmess. I plan to spend Sunday and Monday celebrating the solstice with my hippie friends (mostly will involve saunas, nudity, music, and drinking I do hope) and then going about my business for the remainder of the week as if nothing out of the ordinary were occurring. But I'll certainly pour one out for RLS and Ludacris--and you!
Aw, Jazmine, this made my heart swell. Now I gotta call my sister (I only have the one, but the phenomenon of fighting like cats and then suddenly realizing we like each other is similar).
@Jazmine Hughes Haha frankly I am quite happy either way!
I’m absolutely ready for a woman president. I’m ready for a woman nighttime-talk-show host, to tell you the truth. I wonder which will be first.
Yep, Chris Rock just stole my heart too.
This week was a most excellent week in Hairpinnage. My favorite was the 39 Questions piece! But seriously, there was so much good stuff. Thanks for all your work!
Jazmine, you are welcome to eat all the Gushers within reach (*shudder*) and I will eat the tomatoes. And we will both think we got the far better part of the deal!
@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) Is it big enough to put a fancy/shiny belt around it? I am not a fan of the blazer/t shirt look on myself, I prefer scarves...but I also know people who can really make it look good!
BRB, gotta buy a coffin. That rice trick works every time but I have had bad luck with ziploc bags...thanks for the tip!
@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) My mom uses Hi comma because she read it in the NYT or something, and it always looks vaguely censorious to me. Of course, this may be a thing between my mom and me, since we've had the conversation where she says YOU'RE AN EDITOR WHY ARE YOU NOT PUNCTUATING EMAILS CORRECTLY and I'm like, Because you're my MOM not the bloody University of Chicago Press.
Anyway, I generally don't mind receiving casual emails, but I always begin mine with a proper salutation of some sort, even if it's just "Hey Ma," and end with "Cheers" (for people who don't know me well) or "YT" (for friends and relations) plus my name.
I too worship Mary Beard but I think she might be overthinking this.
Summon the food. Summon the food. Summon the food.
I keep doing this, but it's not working. Also, it's the middle of the day and there are no guests, but still. WHERE IS MY INVISIBLE MANSERVANT
It is snowing and I would really like a toasted cheese sandwich, is all.
@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) That is a hard one. I think there are many levels of friendship, some deep, some not. If you never talk about the tough things, you can't really make a strong bond IMO. Have you had a conversation about general friendship expectations without going into the specifics of that particular friendship?
