On Nickelodeon's Diversity "Problem" Is That It Likes Diversity

@Lisa Frank Well Chapel would have to be promoted to Ranking Science Officer because Spock AND Mccoy have both been captured. Ensign Tendaji (Lupita Nyong'o) takes over medical bay while Lt. Chapel works on the antidote. Also Lucy Liu is the leader of the Klingon rebel faction.

@Lisa Frank I just assumed that Sulu would have the conn (since he usually has the conn when Kirk isn't on the bridge?) and therefore be acting Captain in the event that Kirk was incapacitated? Also since Spock and McCoy are captured, Nurse Chapel is promoted to Senior Science Officer. When the Enterprise reaches the distressed ship, they discover that the Klingons have used a neurological weapon to attack the crew of the federation ship and Lt. Chapel isolates the neurological toxin and synthesizes the antidote. Lt. Chapel is played by Kerry Washington.

NEVER APOLOLIGZE FOR GEEKING OUT ABOUT STAR TREK IN MY PRESENCE.

I'm also pissed that he said Clarissa Explains it All didn't matter and wasn't a huge hit? Clarissa mattered A LOT!

Also speaking of John Cho standing around and looking attractive, is Selfie worth watching? Maybe in the next Star Trek, they can lock Kirk in a storage closet, and Sulu can become the Captain?

On Faux Feminism in Trademark Tweeds

This is the second amazing essay I've read by Meredith Graves in the last month. And I'm so happy this one is on the Hairpin!

On I'm Never Cooking Again (Not That I Ever Cooked Much to Begin With, So There's Been Very Little Change)

I've never done an official cost benefit analysis, but it really seems to me like groceries in New York are so expensive that it's often cheaper to eat pizza/deli sandwiches/fast food than to buy meat and produce and cook (healthier yes, cheaper not so much.) And I'm not talking about artisan cheese made by nuns in Belgium or beef from grass-fed, Montessori-educated cattle, I just shop at my local grocery store in my gentrifying but still working class neighborhood and it's expensive. Like I'm sure if I bought all the ingredients for a cheeseburger or just bought a cheeseburger at the bar down the street, the bar burger would be cheaper.

This is so beautiful...thank you!

But Derek Jeter can't be 40. How old does that make me!?

On What’s the Color of Your Existential Abyss?

When was the last time you danced? 7) In your apartment, in your underwear. You looked just like Beyonce.
