WHAT DO YOU MEAN I’M A “ONE-UPPER”?
I MEAN THAT YOU EXAGGERATE OR OUTRIGHT LIE, NOT ONLY TO MAKE YOURSELF SEEM FAR MORE INTERESTING THAN YOU ACTUALLY ARE, BUT ALSO OUT OF A MISGUIDED SPIRIT OF COMPETITIVENESS AND/OR ENVY. THAT YOU WILL NOT ALLOW YOURSELF TO JUST ENJOY SOMEONE ELSE’S EXPERIENCES AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS BECAUSE IT ERRONEOUSLY MAKES YOU FEEL INFERIOR, SO YOU FABRICATE WIDLY IMPROBABLE TALES TO SUIT YOUR NEED FOR SITUATIONAL DOMINANCE. THAT IS WHAT I MEAN BY THAT.
I DON’T DO THAT.
I’D ARGUE, BUT I HAVE A DATE AT 5:30 AND I NEED TO GET READY.
WELL THAT’S FINE WITH ME, BECAUSE I HAVE TWO DATES AT 5:30.
Kingfisher things he’s Premium.
Fabric from India that’ll soon be pillows for our couch … much to M’s chagrin I might add (is there any straight guy out there who actually likes this fabric?). #dontcare
Oh, they’re going to be beautiful!
On Tuesday morning we toured the backwaters of Kumarakom on a two-hour boat ride. We saw houses, locals working or attending school, and the largest raft of ducks I’ve ever seen.
I’m very excited to share this video I made about the wonderful art project Stop Telling Women To Smile.
Great work Dean. Projects like Tatyana’s give me hope that we’re starting to have conversations that will change the culture of street harassment, leading to its end. I was 12 when I received my first catcall in downtown Austin, attending ballet school during the summer. The men at the bus stop were in their 40s. I don’t want my nieces—or any girls—growing up having to prepare for those moments and then endure them throughout their lives. I’m 33 living in Sunset Park and still get harassed when I’m doing my laundry, walking home, going out to the grocery store.
Scenes from Cubbon Park, including Vidhana Soudha, the majestic granite building where the state legislature of Karnataka meets.
I love seeing this project grow.
