Stuff I’m reading

This interview with Jack Antonoff made me feel guilty about not liking fun. (the band, not the general activity)

Rights belong to the publisher and author

This book. I liked it at first but now, it’s slowly killing me. I might hate it (but not as much as this book).

This interview with Susan Sarandon. Just when I thought I couldn’t love her more. Such candor!

These tweets about life in NYC.

This essay: “I’m having an abortion this weekend” by Jenny Kutner.

What are you reading? Give me something good!

Things I love about NYC: eyebrow salons

Me: That smells great. Is it lavender?

Eyebrow threading lady: it’s baby powder

Me: Oh. OK.

She put something on a tissue and dabbed it on my eyebrows before threading them. How was I to know?!

I was tempted to take this picture with me to the brow place today. Aren’t hers great? But instead I let the woman do her thing and follow the natural shape of things.

Threading hurts a little, but I much prefer it to having a stranger wield hot wax over my face. The price is also right: just $6 at my neighborhood spot. (although if I worked for Google, it would be free)

I pop in for a touch-up every month or so and then tweeze between visits.

Have you tried threading?
