I wish it were different. I wish that every woman whose actions and worth are parsed and restricted, congratulated and condemned in this country might just once get to wheel around—on the committee that doesn’t believe their medically corroborated story of assault, or on the protesters who tell them that termination is a sin they will regret, or on the boss who tells them he doesn’t believe in their sexual choices, or on the mid-fifties man who congratulates them, or himself, on finding them appealing deep into their dotage—and go black in the eyes and say, “I don’t fucking care if you like it.”

this article is so, so good.

friday

  • on wednesday i took myself to see obvious child. it was fantastic - funny, charming, sad, honest, etc. go see it. also gabby hoffman is my spirit animal. i have loved her since now and then, and i’m so glad she’s acting again.
  • somehow i managed to get the quickly sold out tickets to see lena dunham talk in san francisco in october. so excited. (i know opinions about her are mixed, but i happen to be a huge fan.)
  • i need someone to figure out why it is impossible to get a good bagel outside of the ny metropolitan area. i keep hoping that the next deli i go to here will have good ones, but i am invariably disappointed. i’ve heard theories about water and elevation, but i find those hard to believe. needless to say, i’m already working out in anticipation of how many bagels i will eat when i’m back in nyc in august. (same goes for black and white cookies.) 
  • perhaps you’ve heard of edan lepucki, whose book, california, was featured on the colbert report in his segment about the amazon/hachette wars. full disclosure: i have not read the book yet (still finishing the secret history), but i went to her reading in oakland, and it was great. (i happen to take bar method with her, and she’s a super nice person as well.) if you’re in nyc, you should go see her and emma straub (the vacationers) at mcnally jackson next week.
  • i inadvertently got j hooked on orphan black, and now i have to wait until he’s free to start watching season 2. ugh. related: is there a way to watch season 2 for free?
  • in sondheim related updates: i’m going with two of my coworkers to see a production of into the woods tonight. i also discovered this amazing tumblr: fuckyeahstephensondheim. not sure how i wasn’t aware of this earlier.

tacos (devoured and not pictured) and a movie have replaced street hot dog and a musical as my solo date night. I’d also like to thank landmark cinemas (which I sorely missed in NYC) for chilling the junior mints.  (at Landmark Theater (Embarcadero Center))
