Ladies Be Talkin' About Shoes

Well I’ll be a monkey’s uncle! Tom Smith, the Senate candidate from Pennsylvania who last week compared pregnancy from rape to having a baby out of wedlock, has verbal diarrhea again. Last week, Smith introduced vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan at a campaign event in PA and was filmed working the crowd. As you can see in this video of his greatest sexist hits (it’s the second item), Smith walked up to Carrie Bradshaw and Samantha Jones two women and asks them, “What are we talking about here? Two girls together talking!” One of the women answers, “We’re talking about the power of petite women.” And then Smith replies, “My guess would have been you were talking about shoes.” You know ladies: always talking about shoes! I guess we should be grateful he didn’t say “nail polish,” though, right?

Classic Stripes With Some Verve

You can never have too many striped shirts: they dress up, they dress down, and they are, above all, classic. I’m loving Madewell’s colorful take on a classic striped long-sleeve T, which I’m already joyfully matching in my head with colorful jeans already in my closet. How can you not be happy in a plum cotton T with magenta stripes?! [$49.50, Madewell]

Tig Notaro On Dating With Breast Cancer

Tig Notaro NYT

The doctor has prepared me for more weight loss and losing my hair. Dating isn’t the main focus here, but it’s fresh in my mind, because I just got out of a relationship. So I’m just sitting here, thinking, ‘Wow, not only am I single, but I’m about to be four pounds and bald.’

–Comedienne Tig Notaro went onstage last month in Los Angeles and opened her set by saying “Thank you, I have cancer, thank you.” The audience was shocked. In this week’s New York Times Magazine, Notaro talks about how she had a life-threatening infection, lost her mother to a freak accident days after leaving the hospital, and then was diagnosed with breast cancer. To cope, she did what she does best: got up onstage and laughed about it. It really struck me from this interview, jokes aside, that Tig Notaro is an extremely strong person. Very much hoping for she gets well soon — and stops being on the receiving end of life’s shit stick. [New York Times Magazine] [Image: NYT Magazine]
