Re: Why did kids make fun of you?

Ouch, spacebot. Anyway, frizzy hair, liking to read, not watching much TV, caring about school, not shaving my legs...idk I’m sure there was more. Basically variations on the themes of “not caring enough about my appearance” and “caring too much about intellectual things.”

Re: What's the closest item to you that is blue?

my pants. Or maybe my hair? I am suddenly beset with existential questions about what is "me" and what is "close." Thanks spacebot!

Re: Are you afraid of flying?

I love flying so much I get frustrated when I don't have a window seat, and then really frustrated when I'm not in the window seat and the person closes the window. I WANT TO PEEK AT CLOUDS. YES ME TOO! My sister and I used to carry on extensive negotiations about who got the window seat. It was ea...

Re: harvey weinstein

I'm paying attention to the number of stories but not all of the individual details, if that makes sense. And I'm paying attention to - and cheering on - the consequences . Weinstein's been fired, Kevin Spacey was replaced in that movie, Louis CK's movie was cancelled. I really do think that indicat...

Re: What do you wash first when you shower?

If I'm washing my hair, which I do about once a week, I do that first in cold water (it sucks BUT it's keeping my colored streak bright and lovely!) and then I work upward, after I've put my hair up and turned the water to hot like a civilized person.

Re: When's the last time you went on a date?

Last week! In fact I’m quite annoyed because at the end he said he wanted to hang out again, so I messaged him over the weekend, again he said yes to the idea and asked if I had something in mind, I suggested something for tonight and he has not responded. And like ....I’m not that into him, I won’t...

Re: Brush or comb?

Both depending on the circumstances. I had to google tangle teaser. It looks like it would definitely get stuck in tangled hair but I'm probably wrong. Is it good for certain hair types? it doesn't get any more stuck than any other brush! I don't think it's magic but the longhaircommunity forum had...

Re: Total Solar Eclipse 2017

I also don't see flaunting your eclipse trip as fundamentally different than talking on social media about any other vacation, or a show that costs lots of money, etc. It definitely can be obnoxious but I very much doubt most people are thinking "look how privileged I am!" Just "i want to share this...

i FINALLY saw Wonder Woman. Agreeing with :4houses: but perhaps for slightly different reasons than some listed here already. Spoiler thoughts below. so overall i loved it, but i didn't like Steve's death as Diana's motivation to access her powers. I do see Enigma's point about it reversing a trope,...
