Are you happy to be who you are?
So dig this - girls with boyish charm, or in tomboy outfit, can still be perceived as charming and cute, by both genders, most of the times. But, guys wearing a dress, or having feminine haircut, or the likes, rarely (if never) gets same treatment in our society. Right? Why is that?
I’ll make it easier for you: Natalie Portman or Jean Seberg can be called cute with the short haircut. Your girlfriend can wear your shirt from last night, or boyfriend shorts in summer time, and still look hellishly attractive. But imagine Brad Pitt in a Deeta von Teese outfit, or George Clooney in Natalie Portman’s pink wig from Closer… You see my point?
47 percent of American families who “sit down to eat dinner” every night eat in the manner as follows: each family member roams into the kitchen, picks out whatever microwaveable dinner he or she wants, and pops it in to “prepare” it, and then brings it to the table, sits and eats. And in that process, they may or may not cross paths with, or sit at the table together, with another member.

[A preemptive afterthought on Omnivore’s Dilemma]
My kids’ mother needs to be a 1) biologist and 2) a chemist. To be more precise, have a good understanding of biology and chemistry. She’ll have to know not just what ingredients are good, but also what they’re good for. Hence biology. Also, when she cooks, she’ll have to understand why a certain cooking method or technique will result in a certain outcome. Hence chemistry.
… Maybe too much to ask? OK probably.
