And be like Jessie. Hope she fills the void with tales of her travels while mine are being sporadically updated…

And UChicago is lucky to have her. Read more about Jamie Keiles here.
I loved the concept of Jamie’s project. As her blog reveals, trying to live one’s life according to a manual whose purpose is to better women’s lives is clearly much more difficult than even I give it credit for. As I compare my thesis and her work, it’s clear that things haven’t changed much in 50 years, and that we have a lot to work for. But our collective consciousness definitely has changed. Jamie seems to think so, and as I hope it’s true, that blogs are helping promote that culture of discussion.
So because my past few weeks have been full of graduations and packing and reflecting on life, I think I’ll roll with that theme on the blog for awhile. I watched this clip a few weeks ago and loved it, but after seeing Toy Story 3 the other day, I like it even more. It was basically a perfect film, and without ruining things, I think it makes fun of and plays with gender stereotypes in an interesting way. I often hope that in the future, I’ll raise my hypothetical children in an environment that is as gender-neutral as possible, and toys always seem to be included in that vision. Anyway, Toy Story 3 is great, Barbie is hilarious, and Ken is even funnier. You’ll laugh and you’ll cry (Well, I sobbed anyway).
I love how I can be nostalgic for a time I never experienced. This feels like Now and Then all over again.
But don’t worry, he’s just going to go get hammered with Papyrus.
