Career women are ugly

Today was a busy day at work. So busy, in fact, that instead of lunch I had a bag of Fruit Snacks, which I think might have had a vitamin in them. Finally, blearily, I took a break to read gossip and movie reviews. I soon came upon Manohla Dargis’s review of “The Family Stone,” in which she makes an excellent point:

There are few character types Hollywood loves to hate more than the female business executive, what the movies once called a “career woman.” And with her brittle efficiency and tight chignon, Meredith looks precisely like one of those types for whom comeuppance and a more relaxed hairstyle are right around the corner.

On that note, I will be spending the next week or so growing out my luxurious hair until I can dangle it from my office window. I will probably not be blogging; hair growth takes a lot of energy.

If y’all get lonely and want to check out some Annalog verbal sparring, you can read my argument with a crazy guy.
