Living in LA is like walking into a room and forgetting why you went in there in the first place. Not in a bad way!
I think what really galls me about the kind of men who applaud women for having "a few dings" (like a car, because they are always comparing women to cars) but still being fuckable is that they seem to think her "experience" is an excuse for them to be callous. She's already been damaged by life right, so what's a little more?
@hotdog I feel the same way. I'm the same age and live in the Big City and still feel young and free, but many of the people I graduated from high school with who stayed in our hometown are just watching CSI and eating at the Olive Garden. I secretly thought I was a lot cooler than them in high school, and I know I'm a lot cooler than them now.
I loved tubing as a kid. I'd hang on until my lips turned blue and the friction had worn away the skin on my legs. I think I turned out ok.
What does it mean to "hail men"? Is it like hailing a taxi? If I walk out to the curb, raise my arm and yell "Man!", will a man pull up and give me a piggy-back ride to my house when I'm drunk?
@adorable-eggplant But Mercury was retrograde in February? I think we're going to be ok.
I think we can all learn more about reading people from our dogs.
@Lucienne I loved, loved this article so much! And I totally agree that the themes of the books, which did introduce me to labor rights and feminism (among other things), were over-shadowed by the consumerism encouraged by the catalog.
But I also identified with Samantha more than Molly. Maybe it was because my grandparents stories were about surviving the war in Europe, I didn't have the same frame of reference about the home front. And seeing a spoiled young girl begin to grow a social conscience was much closer to my own experience (and something I'm glad I was exposed to at that age.)
Thank You, More Please!
On Field Trip!
@Amphora You like Mahwah better than Buttzville!?
