0 k.lo and i continue to have high caliber discourse







0 mortified

on saturday, at the leicester square theatre, in front of 400 people, wearing a 3€ dress bought on the last visit to paris, i mortified myself again.

hilariously, in the photo evidence that has surfaced so far, i basically look like a piece of clipart.

i'm also not sure that i've ever been less terrified of a public speaking experience. which is, in and of itself, terrifying.

0 FJ: 25 years after Tonya’s triple axel

There was loads ‘o brouhaha around the 20th anniversary of The Wacking. There was, however- surprise, surprise- almost jack doodely around the 25th anniversary of Tonya Harding’s landing of the triple axel at the U.S. Nationals on 16 February 1991.
A jubilant Tonya Harding acknowledged the crowd as she came out of her successful triple axel on her way to winning the U.S. Figure Skating Championships on Feb. 16, 1991 in Minneapolis. Harding, of Portland, Oregon, became the first American woman to perform a triple axel in competition. (AP Photo/Jim Mone)

0 it seems we need to talk about hillary clinton too

i am writing about feelings. i am writing about the past. i am analyzing culture.
i am analyzing a culture in which it does not feel safe to write about the feelings i have about this woman (for the record, i second all of this), and i am also analyzing the feeling that i am not entitled to these feelings and what that tells us about our culture.
i am writing about hillary clinton because i find it troubling and awful and angering that hillary clinton is someone it does not feel safe to write about.
