Ok LA/OC folks! What are your top choices for things to do/places to go on any given day?

I absolutely love this. Transcript after the jump. Dear Baba Yaga,
I’m in my last year of graduate school, and I’ve been having a great time. I haven’t planned much farther than this, and prospects look bleak. It seems unlikely that I’ll ever stumble into a more felicitous set of circumstances. Will my life ever be this good again?
BABA YAGA:
The life ; you know now will soon seem a bauble ;–full of visions & unimaginable colorings, all a-swirl & small enough to hold in yr hand. & yr new life will feel hot & ravenous as the live mouth of a beast, & real. & then that too will be a bauble, & you will admire it. :& everything will be small & far away, & all the sadnesses, too, small & almost darling. So when you are in the mouth of the beast, let yrself be eaten, let the beast eat all of you & gnash yr bones.

Dear Baba Yaga,

I’m in my last year of graduate school, and I’ve been having a great time. I haven’t planned much farther than this, and prospects look bleak. It seems unlikely that I’ll ever stumble into a more felicitous set of circumstances. Will my life ever be this good again?

The life ; you know now will soon seem a bauble ;–full of visions & unimaginable colorings, all a-swirl & small enough to hold in yr hand. & yr new life will feel hot & ravenous as the live mouth of a beast, & real. & then that too will be a bauble, & you will admire it. :& everything will be small & far away, & all the sadnesses, too, small & almost darling. So when you are in the mouth of the beast, let yrself be eaten, let the beast eat all of you & gnash yr bones.

"You may not agree with a woman, but to criticize her appearance — as opposed to her ideas or actions — isn’t doing anyone any favors, least of all you. Insulting a woman’s looks when they have nothing to do with the issue at hand implies a lack of comprehension on your part, an inability to engage in high-level thinking. You may think she’s ugly, but everyone else thinks you’re an idiot."

The Defender is a pepper spray that when sprayed takes a picture of the person you’re spraying and sends it the police along with your GPS location, user information, as well as flashing a bright light in the attackers face and emitting a loud alarm.

I’ve decided to dedicate Sundays on my blog to brunch and my favorite links of the week. If you’re into food porn, gifs, news and feminism, head on over!

Take a bite out of Naked Artichokes

The only “I don’t need feminism because” response I’ve ever accept. Ever.
