I’m Still Here


I have a blog? What???

So anyway, yeah, I’m still alive and my Internet connection works and my fingers remain functional, so here you go, a blog post.

A. 3 reasons why I hate articles of clothing that start with “boyfriend”: They are called “boyfriend pants,” or “boyfriend jeans” or “boyfriend sweatshirts,” etc. and I hate them. Why? #1 I should be able to wear comfortable, loose-fitting, unembellished clothing without a label that implies this is a style of clothing reserved for penis-carrying humans. #2 The name itself is pretty heteronormative. #3 The implication that all women’s clothing are so uncomfortable and ridiculous that we need to wear our boyfriends’ clothes just to chill once in a while. Ironically, it’s awesome that they make these kinds of clothes specifically for women – they’re just marketed wrong.

B. 3 summer movies I’m naively excited to see: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (obviously), Cowboys and Aliens (check out the ass on James Bond) and Super 8 (though the trailer reminds me a little too much of War of the Worlds, and we know how that turned out).

C. 3 indications that I may be evolving into an adult: I cooked a bean and vegetable stew yesterday (or soup, whatever, I can’t tell the difference), I’ve been going to the gym a few times a week for about a month or so and I think I might just have an ounce of upper body strength that I didn’t have before, and despite what my mother and grandmother may tell you, I wake up by 10 a.m. every day – even when I don’t have to. So there.

D. 3 ways that I’m still 14, deep down: I ate, like, *THIS MUCH* marzipan last night, I’ve been listening to “Don’t Turn Out the Lights” by NKOTBSB on repeat since yesterday, and last week I asked R.L. Stine a question on Twitter (which he answered!) and spent the rest of the day in a state of sustained exhilaration.

E. 3 non-movie things I’m looking forward to this summer: Glee concert in Toronto on June 11 (don’t judge me), Comic-Con in San Diego in late July (plus vacationing in L.A. beforehand), and, you know, sun and stuff.

There, that ought to tide everyone over, right? In case you’re wondering, all the time I could be updating this blog, I’m working on my novel – a priority that might belong in either C or D, not sure yet.

  1. Hey lady! How timely that you have a blog post the day before I’m trying to spam 20 blogs in one day lol A lot of women’s fashions tend to be hetero-normative, so no surprise on the whole “boyfriend” label. Although I am also in favour of loose-fitting clothing (or at least more breathable clothing), I woudn’t know how to market it. “Marzipants” sounds like it could have potential though…
