What the strangest thing to happen to you during a waxing?
I ask because of something that occurred to me recently. There I was, lying completely exposed from the waist down, when the aesthetician stepped back and announced “cute one.”
I’m flattered, I guess? I laughed pretty hard.
This happened at a dedicated waxing spot versus a room at a nail salon, if the context matters. I’ve been to this spot and this particular woman before.
Have you ever experienced something like this? I need to know.
Finally! The first Twitter Spotlight in ages. Hope you enjoy it.

OneChicklette: Your favorite qualities in a love interest
@NYCEditorGal: A sense of humor, intelligence, kindness, loyalty, selflessness. A little bit of hotness doesn’t hurt either.

Growing up, I loved the weekend TV show Tales from the Darkside* and movies like April Fool’s Day (sadly, only available on VHS).
I like roller coasters and haunted houses and jumping off cliffs sometimes. If you need a friend to see a scary movie with you, I’m your girl. Most of my friends hate scary movies, it seems, so I guess it’s another way I’m weird.
The reason I’m telling you these things is to point out that I should have been watching The Fall for some time now. It’s suspenseful even though you know from the start who the bad guy is. It’s creepy. And I love it.
Season 3 is filming now and will air in late 2016 (so I hear). There’s time to catch up. Lots of it actually – I got through seasons 1 and 2 in less than 48 hours.
Have you watched The Fall? Let’s talk!
Remember my NYC to-do list?
Now I need your help. As a visitor to NYC, what would you want to do? I have a special houseguest coming to spend the weekend and while I have a handle on where we’ll go each evening for food, drink and general merrymaking, I’m not sure what to do with mornings and afternoons.
My guest has been to New York before so I’m not thinking of obvious tourist attractions like Times Square (ugh) or the Empire State Building. And given that it’s January, planning is tricky.
Whether you’ve been to NYC a lot or a little, or if you’re a resident of the city, I’m eager to hear your suggestions. xo
A new season of The Bachelor is about to begin so this is me right now:
Was Ben my favorite?
Nah, seems boring. Emma and Claire agree (listen here).
Ben is handsome but in a Ken doll kind of way. If something distinguishes him from your average bro, I haven’t seen it yet.
But I’ll be watching of course. I always do.
