@mabellegueule I stopped reading last year, but I do follow Lindy West's Tumblr, and her Twitter, because she's absolutely fantastic. I wish there were more writers like her on Jezebel. I was hoping somebody would point out how good she is!
On "The cost for each attendee: $4000. And that was after Tracy’s fiancé paid one night for everyone at the W hotel"
My bachelorette party was a few weeks ago, and my ladies bought me dinner, and a few drinks. I felt bad enough about that! I can't imagine asking them to do more, or pay for something so extravagant. But then, that Paris trip is costing more than my whole wedding + honeymoon.
@ellochka Congratulations! I hope your wedding planning is smooth and stress-free (this is coming from someone who is two weeks away from the big day, and it was a mostly stress-free time).
@werewolfbarmitzvah I've been telling people this for years, too! Just get up at the time you know you need to be awake, not the time you hope to be awake. Silly!
100% no money, so figuring out to spend much-appreciated giftcards instead.
On "The sexual narratives we absorb in youth are formidable, formative": What's Your All-Time Most Erotic Book?
@twirl2 Yup! Somehow my parents weren't bothered that 11-year-old me was reading these. And I read some Ken Follett books that had some pretty racy scenes, too.
@rimy I had similar mood swing problems. Basically, I was no fun to live with for over a year (bless my fiancé's buttons for putting up with me). We're using condoms, which is not much fun, but it's way better than randomly crying at work, and yelling about every little thing.
@iceberg Henry Cavill, yes yes yes. I was unaware of him until I saw Man of Steel, and I've been binge watching The Tudors ever since, just for his scenes. Mmmhmm.
@RubeksCube Seconding Karl Urban. I would watch him paint a wall.
