Open Thread / Weekend Roundup

by Jazmine Hughes Let’s close out this week with Charlotte Pickles dropping some knowledge on us (yes, I have started rewatching Rugrats, and yes, it totally stands up). How are you? I have been using my Clarisonic for two whole weeks and I am not a stunning model yet so I am pretty confused??? Haley bought seaweed shampoo. We are #ladies. This week!! We found comfort in Law & Order, read the book by the dude with two dicks, DREAM CASTED OCEAN’S ELEVEN: LADIES’ NIGHT, looked for a man, caughtRead More

How Do You Get Shit Done?

by Jazmine Hughes This is unoriginal, but I’m a really bad procrastinator. I like spending thirty minutes staring at my pores in the mirror, or spending an hour scrolling to the hundredth page of Tumblr, or spending a day imagining what I’d look like if I shaved my eyebrows off (ok?). But I also crave the feeling of being productive, and can’t operate too well without it. A friend recently asked me what I’d deem a perfect day, and nestled among 2-5 breakfast sandwiches, I asserted that I wanted aRead More

The Cost Of Things: Getting Your Wisdom Teeth At 30

by Arinn Westendorf In November, I had my wisdom teeth out. Having waited until I was 30 to have this done, I received an unwelcome warning from the surgeon: “At your age, we expect the surgery to be more difficult and the recovery to take longer than if you were younger.” Not exactly a ray of sunshine, after I’d foolishly hoped for something more like, “This will be the easiest surgery of my career,” or “Look how many tattoos you have!  Getting your wisdom teeth out will hurt less thanRead More

The Quiet Revolution of Ava DuVernay

In the words of Ava DuVernay, inspiration is an opportunity to “blossom in all kinds of areas.” DuVernay’s own Hollywood story echoes her own words. Before she began directing, she worked as a film marketer and publicist for 14 years. Her first film, a documentary about hip-hop called This is the Life received critical acclaim. In 2010 she directed and wrote her first narrative feature, I Will Follow. Since then, she’s been onRead More

Susie Snake’s New Adventure In The Big City

by Anna Fitzpatrick “Officials in San Diego are trying to sort out how a 5 1/2-foot snake wound up in a toilet at an office building. Stephanie Lacsa told San Diego County authorities she noticed the water level in the toilet was higher than usual when she went to the second-floor restroom Tuesday. When she plunged it, a snake popped up and flicked its tongue. How it got in the toilet remains a mystery.” Susie sighed over her dinner. Sewer rat, again. It was hard to believe that there wasRead More
