THIS MAN IS A GIFT
SOMEBODY PLEASE POINT OUT ALREADY THAT THE DISCREPANCY IN SALARIES IS COMPARATIVE NOT ON THE BASIS OF AN AVERAGE FEMALE SALARY VS. AN AVERAGE MALE SALARY, BUT ON THE AVERAGE SALARIES OF MEN AND WOMEN DOING THE EXACT SAME JOB. AS IN, WOMEN BEING PAID LESS THAN MEN FOR THE EXACT SAME JOB, AND THAT PAY GAP BEING ATTRIBUTED TO GENDER. I AM SO TIRED OF PEOPLE ARGUING ABOUT THE VARIOUS REASONS THAT WOMEN MAKE LESS MONEY IN GENERAL WHEN THAT ISN’T EVEN THE FUCKING ISSUE.
1. This is not a ‘scandal’
It’s a crime, and we should be discussing it as such. Some media outlets are salaciously reporting it otherwise, as if the illegal violation of privacy involving intimate images is little more than subject for gossip. When associated with sex, the word ‘scandal’ has been typically interpreted as something that assigns responsibility to all parties involved, a consensual act unfortunately discovered and for which everyone owes an explanation or apology.
I watched the pilot for Selfie, and it made me terrified to think that…
1) Strangers on the internet and readers probably perceive me as the ultra-twee hipster character, Bryn.
2) People I grew up with in Delaware/my distant relatives who follow me on Instagram probably perceive me as Karen Gillan’s vapid and lonely social media-obsessed, Eliza.
3) My IRL friends and co-workers are going to mock me for reading too much into the pilot for a television show called Selfie.
Can we talk about this? Specifically, the ridiculous and transparent Zooey Deschanel á la New Girl caricature and the way I cringe every time Karen Gillan speaks with an American accent? It’s not a bad accent, I’m just so used to her Scottish one and it’s just weird.
I’ve officially mastered the art of walking down the stairs of a moving double decker bus in heels. There’s literally nothing I can’t do in heels.

Go The Fuck To Sleep
The cats nestle close to their kittens,
The lambs have laid down with the sheep.
You are cozy and warm in your bed, my dear.
Please go the fuck to sleep.
The windows are dark in the town, child.
The whales huddle down in the deep.
I’ll read you one…
I didn’t think this could ever get better but Werner Herzog. I can’t.

My iPhone’s been crap since about a month after its warranty expired. The battery dies within a couple of hours, sometimes draining quickly, sometimes dying when it’s at 30% and when I plug it in it jumps to 50%. The sleep/wake button at the top stopped working completely too. When I took it to an Apple store, they said they can fix it — for $279, which is more than the phone cost me in the first place.
As it turns out, Apple finally figured out that this is their manufacturing issue, and they’re doing free replacements for the batch of iPhone 5’s that suck. You can enter your serial number to see if you qualify for a free replacement - HERE for batteries, HERE for sleep/wake buttons.
So glad I didn’t pay to get anything fixed since I’m basically about to get a new phone for freeeeee.
