I’ve officially lived in LA for a week.

I now understand where the term “hot as balls” comes from.

Although I don’t miss the humidity of DC at all. I really like how when the sun sets in LA everything cools off. 5 stars.

I made it to LA, you guys!

As of two days ago I am a resident of LA! I’ll post more here when I come up for air (AKA when my apartment is unpacked and internet is on) but wanted to let you know the eagle (me) has landed.

I love the internet referring to “Cary Fukunaga’s ‘man braids’” — let’s be clear … they’re just braids. Braiding technique does not change based on the gender of the person attached to the head attached to the hair with the braids. 

Hairstyles don’t have genders. They just don’t. And I’m quite certain that all those Native American men you see pictured with braids were not going around saying “Oh, nothing … just man-braiding my hair.”

Fucking ludicrous.

ICYMI: This trailer for Gone Girl aired during last night’s Emmy broadcast. I’m trying to temper my expectations for this film, but man it looks so good. (If you haven’t read the book yet, there’s still time!)

You guys, I’m trying not to get too excited for this, because it could go really really poorly. But I want it to be good, by all accounts the trailers and teasers suggest it will be good, I just … I don’t know. I’m nervous.

Anyone have advice on packing kitchenware?*

Specifically, I have some ceramic and glass baking dishes. I’d like them to survive the move. Beyond bubblewrap and packing peanuts, any words of wisdom?

*Yes, I could google this, but I don’t need some sanctimonious “lifestyle” blogger telling me what to do. I’d rather ask all you anonymous tumblr users who I still trust infinitely more.

And if Michael Brown was not angelic, I was practically demonic. I had my first drink when I was 11. I once brawled in the cafeteria after getting hit in the head with a steel trash can. In my junior year I failed five out of seven classes. By the time I graduated from high school, I had been arrested for assaulting a teacher and been kicked out of school (twice.) And yet no one who knew me thought I had the least bit of thug in me. That is because I also read a lot of books, loved my Commodore 64, and ghostwrote love notes for my friends. In other words, I was a human being. A large number of American teenagers live exactly like Michael Brown. Very few of them are shot in the head and left to bake on the pavement.

I have no reason not to love her. 


I have a real soft spot in my heart for celebs who don’t take themselves too seriously.
