Oh this SONG. I do love her.

(Via The Hairpin, ”Shake It Out” is currently available on iTunes; Ceremonies is due out November 7.)

I glance around. A little boy on his dad’s shoulders. A couple holding hands, a woman with a dog in a stroller. We all gaze up silently. I feel the leftover anxiety caused by the Ambien fade, and realize I will be all right. The veil is being lifted. I can feel the breeze off the water on my skin like I haven’t in almost a year. The end of the show is nearing and the fireworks are coming faster and stronger, louder and brighter. Everyone breaks out in applause and me into tears.

My girlfriend had a nose job done three years ago at my request. (I did not pressure her.)

[Could you get a nose job? No pressure. But, yeah, can you do that?]

Too bad. Because A) you cannot save anyone from her own bad decisions, full stop. We get to do stupid things, even if the consequences are staggeringly and immediately obvious. And B) you might think you know, but you have NO IDEA. There’s a whole world that exists between those people that you do not have access to, and because you do not have access to it, you cannot judge it or evaluate it.

Most people are either too open or not open enough. Pick your poison.

Mostly because I am obsessed with giraffes, and babies and the French, I am obsessed with Sophie, and so you can imagine my delight when I saw (via The Hairpin) that Slate has a little piece on Sophie, and how she is French, and babies LOVE HER. Obviously not just babies.

Oh hey. It’s Valentine’s Day. Also, Monday. This handy graph from Mary Miller at The Hairpin should help you do things like, assess how long you should have taken to make a gift for your significant other (the accompanying story is really funny, also). I have to believe that this graph only applies to girls though, because if a guy doesn’t plan something nice for V-Day, he’s usually in trouble, so the graph for him would be more like “Effort to Plan Nice Valentine’s Day x Future Security in Relationship x Survival Instinct in the Wild.”

2. “All Manhattan girls are, like, staying home and watching Gossip Girl.”

I looked like I was based on the novel PUSH by Sapphire.

Defriend people on Facebook: Guess what? We’re not friends now and we weren’t friends when you sat behind me in Geometry class 14 years ago either! Later!”

I know it includes a bad word, but it’s still a pretty great assessment.

Wait, what did they say? Something, something Swiss Family Robinson? Can you ask that guy what the question was?
