Gets into cab…
Me: “90th & Lex. Please take 5th down”
Cabbie: “I’ll take Lexington and make right.”
Me: “Um no. Take 5th, lex doesn’t move at this hour.”
Cabbie: “are you sure?”
Cabbie: “Ok mam”
Moving nicely down fifth ave now. If I give an actual route to take, just take it dude. I haven’t even had caffeine yet.
Nicole Byer is a goddess, and this is such a small but helpful reminder.
Used the last of my energy to put my tree up! Now it’s time to watch The Santa Clause & eat some jello! (& tmrw buy an extension cord for those lights)
Worst way to end thanksgiving weekend..a monster stomach bug. Yesterday was hell, sleeping in the bathroom hell. Today is for sleep and ice chips. Stuck at mom’s for now, so at least that’s a bonus rather than being at home alone.
Apparently it’s very contagious, thanks mom, dad, & niece. Sharing is caring.
"I was young. It was just the kind of shit that actresses have to go through. Somebody told me I was fat, that I was going to get fired if I didn’t lose a certain amount of weight. They brought in pictures of me where I was basically naked, and told me to use them as motivation for my diet. It was just that. [Someone brought it up recently] They thought that because of the way my career had gone, it wouldn’t still hurt me. That somehow, after I won an Oscar, I’m above it all. ‘You really still care about that?’ Yeah. I was a little girl. I was hurt. It doesn’t matter what accolades you get. I know it’ll never happen to me again. If anybody even tries to whisper the word ‘diet’, I’m like, ‘You can go fuck yourself.”
I love her. She’s such a strong, confident, healthy woman with powerful self-esteem and self-worth. & She’s blunt and honest, which is refreshing. I wish there were more role models like her for girls today.
all women were bigger and stronger than you
and thought they were smarter
women were the ones who started wars
too many of your friends had been raped by women wielding giant dildos
and no K-Y Jelly
the state trooper
who pulled you over on the New Jersey Turnpike
was a woman
and carried a gun
the ability to menstruate
was the prerequisite for most high-paying jobs
your attractiveness to women depended
on the size of your penis
every time women saw you
they’d hoot and make jerking motions with their hands
women were always making jokes
about how ugly penises are
and how bad sperm tastes
you had to explain what’s wrong with your car
to big sweaty women with greasy hands
who stared at your crotch
in a garage where you are surrounded
by posters of naked men with hard-ons
men’s magazines featured cover photos
of 14-year-old boys
tucked into the front of their jeans
and articles like:
“How to tell if your wife is unfaithful”
“What your doctor won’t tell you about your prostate”
“The truth about impotence”
the doctor who examined your prostate
was a woman
and called you “Honey”
you had to inhale your boss’s stale cigar breath
as she insisted that sleeping with her
was part of the job
you couldn’t get away because
the company dress code required
you wear shoes
designed to keep you from running
And what if
after all that
women still wanted you
to love them.
For the Men Who Still Don’t Get It, written 20 years ago by Carol Diehl.
She wrote a post about the history of this poem that is worth reading.

Mom’s got the stomach flu :( So I put up her Christmas tree and left the ornaments for her to decorate when she feels better!
Quiet night of blue blood, elementary, and good wife episodes (hey CBS), while praying to all that’s holy that I don’t get the stomach bug too!
Ps. In love with VS’s “yoga leggings”
I know I’ve been hanging with my niece when I’m rocking an upside down sticker! So thankful for A! ♥

Leave the gun. Take the cannolis.
It’s not a holiday until my mom has the godfather on tv :P
Such a fun, relaxing day!

Relaxing is a glass of wine, a fire going, & lounging on the couch :)
