"Why the need for an “I hate other girls” proclamation? Is there some underlying desperation for male approval, some need to prove that you’re so different from all the other girls out there, when all that boils down to is that you’re one of those chicks who just wants dudes to like her? And you do it by insulting and generalizing about other women. And here’s the thing, once you do it, you start to make it OK for everyone to do it. So saying, “Girls are bitches” or, “Girls are shallow and catty” just opens up the door for guys to say those things. It’s one of the ways that society at large helps to keep women down: by turning us against one another, even subtly. And I know that girls who hate other girls are the first ones to say, “Oh, I’m not like that. I’m like a guy! I like guy things, and guys are easier to be friends with.” So you probably shouldn’t be surprised that all those women that you’re being a jerk about aren’t banging down your door to be your friend. Because by saying all of that, you’re being shallow and catty. You’re reducing women to stereotypes while somehow frantically begging everyone not to apply that stereotype to you."

Early summer weather means the return of the calculator watch-tanline. If there were any lingering doubts of my coolness, lets please agree this should lay them to rest.

So I walked into the dentist this morning. My dentist asked me how my weekend was. I said “Good, I watched Captain America last night. I really liked it.” And my dentist says “Oh, my son is in that movie.” At first I thought he was joking but then I realized
Dr. Robert Evans
I looked it up
My dentist is Captain America’s dad
I had two volunteers one morning. I mentioned that I had plans to see “The Avengers” later, and she remarked that her nephew was in that movie. I assumed she meant as an extra, so I asked what he did and she replied by saying “I’m Auntie America”. And I said “As in…Chris Evans Aunt???!!!” And then she sent me photographs of the both of them getting ready to leave for the premier. So yes, I do have Evans family photos on my computer like a total stalker.
