The energy some people spend on hating Jennifer Lawrence for her success is ridiculous. Usually individuals who have no power in Hollywood <3
Hathaway is sticking up for JLaw and Hollywood "It" girls everywhere.

Slang words was that were really controversial and vulgar in the past 100 years:

Phone for telephone, photo for photograph, pants for pantaloons, coed for co-educational, exam for examination, gym for gymnasium, bike for bicycle

Next time you’re annoyed with modern lingo, take a breath relax. Reminds me of Xmas (Ecksmas)  and Aks (for Ask) on Futurama

(And fun fact, Christ is spelled with an X/Chi. Also why you see XP as an abbreviation.)
Listen to A Way with Words episodes free, on demand. This week on "A Way with Words": We often hear that English is going to hell in a handbasket. Actually, though, linguistic handwringing about sinking standards and sloppy speech has been going on for centuries--at least as far back as the 1300's! And: language also changes to fit the needs the workplace. Take, for example, the slang of flight attendants. Listen on your next trip, and you might ...

"It may come as a surprise to learn that the entire Magical Girl genre is descended, effectively, from the American live-action Magical Girlfriend sitcom Bewitched. While two series claim the role of "first magical girl anime"—Mitsuteru Yokoyama's Mahotsukai Sally  (Sally the Witch, 1966-1968) and Akatsuka Fujio's Himitsu No Akkochan (broadcast 1969, but its manga predates Mahotsukai Sally)—the creators of both credit Bewitched as a primary inspiration for their work. Yokoyama explicitly adapted its concept for a younger audience, while Akatsuka merely says he was "inspired" by it."

Definitely notice that some individuals have a pattern of over apologizing to the point of distraction.
Listen to Happier with Gretchen Rubin episodes free, on demand. Elizabeth Craft tells Gretchen Rubin about a Try This At Home idea she had: stop apologizing. This doesn't mean don't own up to your mistakes, but rather make sure you're not OVER apologizing for small things. It's emotionally draining for both parties, and usually unnecessary. Then they discuss whether they prefer familiarity or variety in vacations, books, meals, and TV shows. Plus...

I love Amanda Palmer’s explanations: 

Ears as seeing sound. The same way as an artist sees. Visual art and music work the same way.

Speaking is rhythm and pitch. If you can talk, you are musical.

If you work second shift or just want a late night snack, its one of the few places in towson that's open that isn't fast food. It's a great idea for those times with a lot of variety. They are open 24 hours. Towson has a lot of better options for fine dining but this isn't meant to be that.
