3 Things I Love Yesterday

1. Season 4 of Parks and Recreation on Netflix- I'll be honest, it was my least favorite season thus far, but on second viewing I am already deciding there are some definite gems there that I missed the first time. Plus, it is one of the only actually feminist shows on tv, and it really waves that flag in this season. And if the last episode doesn't make you cry, you have no soul! If you aren't watching this show, you are straight up crazy.
2. Accidentally falling asleep at 8:30 at night- apparently getting married does turn you into an old person. At the very least, it leaves you jet lagged and exhausted. Hopefully, we will turn this around soon, but I do find it kind of cute now.

3. The Amazon reviews of BIC's extremely embarassing "For Her" pens-  If only every time a corporation stupidly tried to pander to a fantasy female market seemingly made out of 13 year old girls and Barbie Dolls-I find it wildly comforting that so many people find this ridiculous. Now if we could harness that energy to fight all the crazies trying to take away women's rights. Here are a few of the gems:

"As if men hadn't been stripped of everything good already, BIC steps in and piles on by encouraging women to learn to write, just like their male counterparts. JohnnyTubestea
" Finally! For years I've had to rely on pencils, or at worst, a twig and some drops of my feminine blood to write down recipes (the only thing a lady should be writing ever). I had despaired of ever being able to write down said recipes in a permanent manner, though my men-folk assured me that I "shouldn't worry yer pretty little head". But, AT LAST! Bic, the great liberator, has released a womanly pen that my gentle baby hands can use without fear of unlady-like callouses and bruises. Thank you, Bic"

 "Ok, I've always had this habit of tapping my upper lip with my pen while I think of things to write. I've also had a problem with thick dark hairs on my upper lip ever since high school - I just figured it was a hormonal thing. Well guess what?! It was those stupid man pens I had been using!! Shortly after using the Bic pens "for her" the hairy lip problem disappeared! Thank you so much Bic for solving this embarrassing problem for me. I can't wait to crack one open tonight and smear the ink on my husband's skull to see if it cures male pattern baldness."

 "It's a great product but it's missing something.. I can't wait for them to come out with Bic for her with Wings"

 "It only has 78% of the writing power of For Him pens. After extensive use it's still unclear whether this handles all writing, or only "legitimate writing". Also an awkwardly excessive ink flow after the end of four weeks"

 "I was so tired of ruining all my lip-liner pencils to write checks to my Avon lady and suffering the embarrassment of pulling out a MAN's pen at the beauty parlor. Now with a pen made with MY feminine needs in mind, I feel more confident in every aspect of my life. My cakes are fluffier, my casseroles crunchier, and my are floors cleaner! When my husband gives me my allowance next week, I'm going to buy a second set of these lady pens and use one to sign the credit slip on a brand-new hat to match. Won't the girls at the next bridge game just be green with envy?"
