I think one of the great things about Jolie's tone is that she assumes you know nothing NOW, but that you are capable of learning. She never assumes that we don't know how to clean X because we're stupid, but rather than no one ever taught us.
@mabellegueule When we announced that I was leaving The HP for [drops to a whisper] Jezebel, one gal was so mad at me that she fumed, "I'M NOT GOING TO MAKE MY BED FOR A WHOLE MONTH IN PROTEST."
I still laugh/cry over that. (Come over and check out the Deadspin stuff, we really do have so much fun.)
@Lily Rowan I mean, imagine my surprise when the Ladies of Jezebel did not call for my head over a discussion of vaginal topics!
@harebell <3 <3 <3
@Misselthwaite RIGHT I ACTUALLY SQUEALED
@Misselthwaite Yeah, I was reading this article like no big deal, and then I saw the name Vespoli. VESPOLI! As a former crewbie, I feel like I've shaken the hand of someone very important... thanks, Hairpin!
Vespoli oh my god I feel like I met a celebrity
@HereKitty Yeah I don't think I've ever even heard of another boat company besides Vespoli?
I just finished The Red Rose Crew, this is timely!
Oh Esther!! How I've missed your comics - they used to be the highlight of my week and were always so sweet and creative and above all - I saw a lot of myself in them. Congrats on your new love - I'm sure we would all like to read a story about him, and would enjoy it as much as a crazy cat lady story :)
