for mez!!!!!!!!!!!

[Trump] taps into fear and insecurity, but then enables his audience to express that fear through anger. And anger gives the illusion of empowerment.

Kristin Kobes Du Mez, a Calvin College historian 

“For listeners who identify with Trump, there is little they need to do but claim what they’re entitled to. No need for sacrifice, for compromise, for complexity.”

and Liz… she’s alive

guys i saw great comet today…. ITS FUCKING AMAZING if you’ve listened to the cast recording… that amazing… BUT THE ACTUAL PRODUCTION IS MIND BLOWING I HONESTLY CANT EXPRESS IN WORDS HOW AMAZING THE PRODUCTION IS. THE LIGHTING ADDED A WHOLE NEW EFFECT TO THE SHOW. ALL THE PERFORMERS WERE INCREDIBLE (if i could caps lock that even bigger i would) literally there’s no bad spot in the theatre wherever you are you feel fully immersed into the show the actors walk everywhere around the theatre. i was on the mez and brittain ashford talked to me!!! DURING THE SHOW LIKE HOLY FUUUUU. on the topic of brittain SHES A FUCKING BEAST HER VOICE IS SO LOW AND BEAUTIFUL I CANT GET OVER IT. i’m not going to explain every detail of the show but one thing that i found absolutely astounding was at the part in “the ball” when natasha and anatole kiss and there’s like a soft echo ringing sound. so in the production all the actors are spread out on all levels of the theatre and all of them are holding wine glasses and during that part after the really loud noise (so not descriptive but i forget which instrument makes the noise ??? sorry) they circle their finger tips over the edge of the wine glass and the sound echoes throughout the theatre and after a minute or so they stop and helene is the last one to stop and she takes her finger of the glass and then it’s dead silent. i explained it horrible but it’s actually truly beautiful to hear and see. also amber gray is probably one of the sweetest people i’ve met. my uncle knew her so contacted her earlier and she was like “ill put you on the list and you can come back stage” so she brought us back stage and also on stage and she talked to us for awhile and she was so sweet. she wasn’t feeling very well but she still took time out of her schedule to talk to us and give us a tour. i also saw grace who was waiting for amber so they could get dinner together. we didn’t talk but she had the nicestd smile. in conclusion, go see great comet for a mind blowing breathtaking experience and also you get russian dumplings and egg shakers.

It's pronounced jhee-Von-SHEE!

I was in Barney’s earlier doing some shopping and this girl was asking her SD (or so it looked like) to buy her a Givenchy bag. But she pronounced it “GIV-en-chi”, like the way it’s spelled in English.. but it’s a French brand!

Both the SD and the salesperson gave her the funniest look! Don’t make the same mistake girls its important to know how to pronounce words like that so it seems like you know what you’re talking about. You have to keep up appearances and asking for something like a ratchet isn’t the way to do that 😂

As Juicy J says, “Say no to ratchet pussy”. The upper class tend to date within their class, and even if you’re not upper class you can at least give off the impression that you are by acting and speaking elegantly and intelligently, making it more likely that he’s not going to be embarrassed to be seen with you in public or even take you to dinners introducing you to his friends!

However if you act in a cringeworthy manner, your SD is more likely going to want to keep you in the bedroom instead of taking you shopping and to nice dinners.

Similarly, Hermes is pronounced “AIR-mez” and not “Her-mees”. Interestingly, Moët is actually pronounced the way it’s spelled! I thought it was “Mo-ay” but when I was in Paris a waiter corrected me and said it was “mo-et”. So embarrassing 🙈🙈
