Dustin Hoffman on playing a woman in Tootsie (1982)

“If I was going to be a woman, I would want to be as beautiful as possible. And they said to me, ‘Uh, that’s as beautiful as we can get you.’ And I went home and started crying to my wife, and I said, ‘I have to make this picture.’ And she said, ‘Why?’ And I said, ‘Because I think I’m an interesting woman when I look at myself on screen, and I know that if I met myself at a party, I would never talk to that character because she doesn’t fulfill, physically, the demands that we’re brought up to think that women have to have in order for us to ask them out.’ She says, ‘What are you saying?’ and I said, ‘There’s too many interesting women I have not had the experience to know in this life because I have been brainwashed.’ It was not what it felt like to be a woman. It was what it felt like to be someone that people didn’t respect, for the wrong reasons. I know it’s a comedy. But comedy’s a serious business.”

This is a man in tears when he came up against the experience of being a woman in a misogynist society, and realizing what it means for them, and for him, too.

Dustin knows what’s up.

Okay this is honestly the funniest photo I have ever seen. I can’t even look at it or I start cry-laughing.
I found it on awkwardfamilyphotos.com and the caption under it was “We had the worst wedding photographer ever”.
I can’t even handle it. I can’t. I love that someone made this and thought it looked good. You couldn’t even try to make something this bad as a joke. The sincerity with which this was made is what makes it so perfectly bad. It’s priceless. PRICELESS.

Being a teacher is mostly a thankless job but every once in awhile a student will let you know that you made a difference in their life. 

I just got this email from a student:

"This was honestly one of the best classes I’ve ever taken! You were an amazing professor and I love the way you taught the class and thanks to this class I enjoy photography even more and have found a way to be creative and artistic. I never thought I was good at any of it but turns out this was it. Thank you so much for everything! You’re the best! I hope to see you around again.”

Don’t Get Hit By A Truck And Drive!

A week ago today my car was hit by a truck. A truck came into my lane and squished my car. Thankfully I’m okay physically- but mentally I’m in the hospital hooked up to all kinds of machines. It’s touch-and-go but I’ll pull through eventually. At least there will be no visible scars.

Truck vs. Honda Civic: It’s a terrible match-up. Trucks should only be allowed to pick on trucks their own size- it’s only fair. A Honda Civic has no chance when a truck wants to fight. NO CHANCE. My Honda wasn’t even prepared… just driving along with no cares in the world. What an idiot.

I have had that car for ten years. It’s paid for. It’s been a great car with no maintenance issues. IT’S PAID FOR. It has gotten me from point A to point B daily for ten years and was never a whiny bitch about it once. (Except for that one day I went to McDonalds three times but that’s not important now.)

That car was the only one who knew my secret eating habits- expertly hiding the evidence of my 7-Eleven candy binges under its seats. It listened quietly without judgment while I sang at the top of my lungs. It saw boyfriends come and go and never once told me what it really thought of them- but I knew.

I have driven it across the country a few times and guess what? NO ACCIDENTS. I have driven all speeds on freeways all over the country, through heavy traffic, heavy winds, downpour rain, slippery ice and snow and guess what? NO ACCIDENTS.

Look, I know accidents happen but not to me. They only happen to other people.

If one good thing has come from this, it’s that I’m really terrified while driving. I think every single person is coming into my lane. I overreact and have panic attacks. Please don’t drive next to me.

I’m still waiting to hear from the powers that be if my car is going to pull through this or if I will have to pull the plug. I am really hoping for the former. I don’t want a new car. If it is totaled, I don’t want the Kelley Blue Book value, I want the Robin McCauley value: ten years of priceless memories, or the cash equivalent.

Upon entering my home people have said, “You have a lot of stuff.” And, to clarify, that’s not to say I have nice things or things of any real value. It’s more that, well, I have a lot of stuff. I wouldn’t say I’m at “someone needs to call A&E” level of stuff. It’s just stuff I’ve…
