A local radio station has a segment they call “Blown Off” where the hosts hear from a person who’s been on a date with someone that then hasn’t called them back. They chat with person, get details and then call the date and put them on the spot on live radio asking why they blew the other person off.
Katie Roiphe’s article is out in Harper’s. Why yes she IS reveling in her victimhood. Which is ironic considering that her whole thrust is that the #MeToo movement is turning women into victims with no agency. She, of course, is different. Her victimhood is earned with death threats from Twitter!
So topical, so beautiful, a perfect gif! What’s made you giggle today?
So my parent, in their infinite wisdom, discontinued their Medicare Part D drug coverage. And now of course is faced with spending $5000/year on the new drug they were just prescribed. Surprise! They’re too cheap to do that (even though they could easily afford it). The doctor gave them free samples for a month but…
Cause Fuck It Friday is too far away!
It looks like the Senate has the votes to pass the crap tax bill. Fucking corrupt motherfuckers.
First of all:
Commemorating the invention of the hole punch is adorable.
This is what I want to see on the last episode of SNL before Christmas. Have Kate McKinnon dressed as Hillary singing with a choir of drag queens with Whoville hair wearing the dresses Melania and Ivanka wore to the Inauguration.
What the fucking fuck is wrong with all the people who are STILL anti gun control? Do you want two year olds to be open-carrying AK-47's to pre-school? Will that finally make your dicks hard enough?
From an unfashionable person who looks at most of the stuff and thinks:
This NYT Op-ed is insane. A Swedish grad student went undercover in the Alt-Right movement and has videos of horrible horrible people advocating for a world where Hitler is considered a hero. This world happens “at the cost of a few hundred million people”, says one guy unconcernedly. Oh and he brags of connections to…
We’re all exhausted. The weather/fires/earthquakes are trying to kill us all. Our government is trying to kill us all either through nuclear war, crap healthcare or death by a thousand cuts to our humanity. Companies we work for are grinding us further into dust and demanding more for less. Hell even Ken Burns is…
Add your own! Here are mine:
I am an adult, and therefore supposed to be in charge of my own life/destiny and all that stuff that sounds soooo fun when you’re 16.
Is anyone else watching? I’m old (well not an AARP member yet but I feel like I’m about 97) and not fashion forward at all just FYI so my hot takes are probably more like sour grapes from Edna on Mama’s Family. But I’m curious to hear what others think.
When you’re already down in the dumps about your life (shitty job that doesn’t even have the decency to pay well, crap body image, social life less exciting than a leper who’s actively dropping body parts behind them) this is not the time to google all your old high school and college classmates. Nothing is more…
I’m not even sure where this woman was demonstrating, but I feel like she should run for office cause she’s got sass!
This op-ed in the NYT details the discovery of a saboteur in a research lab. For me though, the part of the story that isn’t discussed is more interesting. Why was everyone so quick to assume that the researcher sabotaged herself (a view held not only by others in the program but by the police as well)?
So Ivanka Trump. (Already we’re all gritting our teeth :)
