animalstalkinginallcaps:

CINDY, YOU ACTUALLY THINK THIS IS SOMEHOW A ‘ONE SIDED RELATIONSHIP’ AND THAT I ONLY CARE ABOUT MY OWN FEELINGS? HOW DO YOU SUPPOSE IT MAKES ME FEEL TO KNOW THAT THE WOMAN I LOVE THINKS I’M ‘SHALLOW’, AND ‘SELFISH’, AND THAT I EXHIBIT ‘AN ALMOST PATHOLOGICAL COMPULSION TO MAKE MYSELF THE FOCUS OF EVERY DISCUSSION’?
THAT’S SO UNFAIR TO ME. I DON’T DESERVE THAT, AND I’M NOT SURE HOW I’M SUPPOSED TO COPE WITH IT.

The Selfish Shellfish!
Anyone…?
(h/t to Julie for the fantastic recommendation)

newyorker:

In November, the magazine published “The Man Who Invented the Calendar,” an excerpt from B.J. Novak’s new book, “One More Thing.” Here’s the trailer, hot off the (French) presses.

Très cute.

rachelhills:

Spotted on the Tube last night: “Nigella took cocaine and then stayed up all night writing books.”
I found this darkly hilarious: the idea of a woman, addled by cocaine, staying up all night (and no doubt neglecting her husband and children) and engaging in the wanton activity of writing books!
Quelle horreur!

Nigella is a personal hero. 
And not just ‘cause of the wanton book-writing.

So she decided to have an abortion, which was still then illegal. I went with her by train to Florida. The guy, I think, was not quite interested in the decision, and not interested in paternity, but I think he was financially quite sound and undertook the cost of all this. She took a train with me going to Florida to have the abortion with a respectable, needless to say, good physician. Then we took the train back, and the emotions coming back were even more complicated than going down. It took a day and a half, or something. One of us started talking about the book she was never going to write. And, I think it was on the train, I’m not sure of this, but she said, “At least I have a first line.” And I said, “Really? What is it?” And she said, “Claude left me, the French rat.”

Translated literally to: “bonus-sausage-day-feeling.”
