lalalindsay: Little Lion Man by Mumford and...
This continent project has really taken a surprising amount of commitment to complete. This afternoon, I had to transfer money from my savings account to buy a pair of scissors and my medicated deodorant prescription from Walgreen’s. Full disclosure: I was also trying to buy the September issues. I returned to the CVS closer to my house in order to purchase the scissors, because I had...
Women Who Hit Harder
“When I started, all the top players thought the Grand Slams began in the quarterfinals, because the early rounds were so easy and we only had to give 50 percent to get through them,” Kim Clijsters, Belgium’s other tennis superstar, told me when we sat down to talk one day at Wimbledon. “Now I have to be at least 85 to 90 percent at my best from the beginning of a tournament.

kelsium: I’ve totally posted this story before, but it is relevant in my life again because I was watching Little Women last night (the one with Winona Ryder, natch—which remains an excellent and enjoyable film even when it too wholeheartedly embraces the sentimentality of the book, which it does sometimes). So a few months ago, Friend A and I were drinking and talking about novels of our...
lalalindsay: Eat loads of red meat for a few days? I can do that. Get lots of rest? I can also do that. Spend a handful of hours sitting in the cozy transfusion center at my beloved City of Hope watching movies and being wrapped up in warm blankets while nurses shoves heating packs down my shirt? Doesn’t sound too bad. Only being allowed to leave after they watch me eat a package of Oreos? YES. ...
