Woah, Lopez and McIntosh, that story is cinematic as shit!
My personal favorite prison break: after refusing to give evidence against her lady (Sophie Dorothea, aka Electress of Hanover and mother of King George II), Eleonore Knesebeck was locked in Scharzfels Castle. Her family hired a man to break in through the roof, pull her out of her cell, and rappel together 80 feet down to safety. Upon discovering her escape, the commandant of the castle swore that Eleanore had been closely guarded, and that she must have been spirited away by magic. The very hole in the roof was proof that it had been the work of Satan, for no human could have made it.
Sweating and swearing and inebriation
Destroying a city and its reputation
Sanity tenuously held by a string
These are a few of my favorite things.
OH AND ALSO CRACK I FUCKING LOVE CRACK.
I love the Fug Girls!!
I actually was in an argument with a friend about humor and ladies (I know, barf) where I convinced him that there are vast swaths of hilarious shit happening that he is unaware of/doesn't have the cultural touchpoints to understand using only the GFY Karl Lagerfeld character.
Dear Heather and Jessica, I am so happy to see you doing so well and interviewing on the Hairpin! I have been reading your website since the Olden Days, kept up with you guys from TWoP to SF's many iterations, etc. etc. I love your site, and you both seem so lovely and down-to-earth, and I am just ridiculously pleased with all of this. (And as a huge Kate Middleton fangirl, I appreciate that too.)
I am also so glad that your website is free (from you guys) from any sort of snippy body-snarking that is so prevalent on celebrity fashion sites. It's exhausting and awful and I'm glad to see a place where you can say "wow her skirt looks like it's made of feathers and string and chewing gum with little spiders hanging off the edges, it's like what would happen if my grandma's upstairs closet was the theme on 'Project Runway'" without anyone chiming in to say WELL SHE'S FAT SO WHATEVER. So thanks, I appreciate that too!
@missannethrope Our nanny's son is in high school. She works limited hours during the week, is done in the afternoon, and takes her son to school and picks him up every day and is home with him at night and on weekends. As much as I love her, I would LOVE to have spent the last four years with rambunctious twins doing nothing but parenting them while also magically making enough money to contribute to our family's financial needs, but it didn't work out that way, unfortunately, and I'm glad we were able to work out an alternative."
Dude, AHP - way to bury the lede:
"we’re writing an adult novel at the moment, The Royal We, which is very very loosely based on Kate Middleton"
ZOMG I love the Fug girls! And the Hairpin! And AHP! THE BEST WORLDS ARE COLLIDING!
And now to read the article.
@heb Ok ok ok, I think this comes down to what we define as "best." I think Liam is the most "trained," Zayn is the most versatile and Harry is the best showman. Even the other members admit Zayn's lines are the hardest to cover!
I think the best part about 1D is that you can really make an argument for any one of them being your #1 fav, while the boy bands of the late 90s only really gave 1 or 2 choices unless you were being aggressively contrarian.
Also: hello, I am a grown woman working in her adult office
