All the World is Waiting for You

Dyed my hair blueblack today. I may be a little excited about Wonder Woman.


Brian says:  Did you dye it with the tears of men?

Romie: Sort of? I made my husband apply it and he was very stressed out by the fear he might (1) fail to dye my hair (2) accidentally dye several other surfaces (3) or both.

Brian: I’m just referring to the guys who are getting very upset about the all-women screenings of Wonder Woman.

Romie: I have been following the strategy of screening messages from those guys. I throw up blocks like they’re missle-deflecting gold bracelets.


Nic says: I used to do blue-black – kind of miss it.

Romie: It is one of very few colors my hair hasn’t previously been! I’m liking it.


Carrie says: Hoo boy just found out BDS Lebanon is boycotting, so my outfit is changing (adding my purple kafia). I realize this is not enough but my ticket is bought already and I do want to go.

Romie: When you’re a member of (or ally of) mutiple sometimes-overlapping oppressed populations, I suspect it’s somewhat revolutionary to be joyful when there is an opportunity to feel delight—to find hope in the community of other imperfect strivers.

I like the kafia idea.


Acevedo: [tosses back long dark locks] you were saying….?


Angie says: GREAT excuse for a selfie, tbh!!

Romie: INSTEAD I CRASH A MAN’S SELFIE

Angie: SO WOMAN, MUCH WONDER

Summer: Your clothes match. I’m agog.

Romie: Mine isn’t clothes; it’s a blanket. We match on many levels but “comfortable ambient temperature” is not one of them.


Angela says: My purple turned red; am considering spinning in place until am brunette and in satin tights myself.

Andrea: Totally thought about doing this, too!!! Solidarity cloaked in midnight blues!!!

I Need a Hero. Specifically, Wonder Woman.

I am a hard sell on superhero movies. But I’m psyched for Wonder Woman. The final trailer is pushing all my buttons.

“If you choose to leave, you may never return.”
“Who would I be if I stay?”

Gets it.

I tend to be pretty skeptical that an individual director on one of the big modern superhero flicks will have much control of the property (the producers are pretty heavy handed), Christopher Nolan aside. HOWEVER I’m starting to get optimistic that Patty Jenkins was able to bring significant Patty Jenkins-ness to this movie and THAT is very exciting. Jenkins was the director of Monster, which is some pretty impeccable bona fides. Also some episodes of Sarah Silverman’s show and Arrested Development. Also grew up a military brat. Perfect combination of perspectives to bring to Wonder Woman.

My heart was pretty hardened until this trailer specifically. But I saw a lot of glimpses of relational stuff that’s likely to make me delightedly crunch popcorn. That little kid Diana on a horse, for instance. Or the lassoed Steve! (Tied up cleancut guy with a laconic sense of humor being feisty is pretty much my bulletproof kink. It’s very specific. And shows up in weird places like Sleeping Beauty, and Resident Evil 4.)
