  1. Love styling my hair wet. I know its frowned upon. But I do it whenever I can get away with it.

    • Roberta Panté :

      You THINK you get away with it. People notice and they judge you for it.

      • Blonde lawyer :

        I often style my hair wet. Judge away. If I wear it curly, it has to air dry naturally and that takes hours. I’m not getting up at 4 just to have bone dry hair when I get to the office.

      • LadyEnginerd :

        Oh, people have their pick of things to judge me for. Styling my hair when wet is really not up there on the list. :) Besides, I judge people who judge people on their hair.

  2. Checked out the Hillary Clinton link. It’s true, that would probably never be asked of a man in the same position. It’s a rather stereotypical question especially given the context of the interview.

    • Amelia Bedelia :

      that question and answer was taken out of context, though. If you read the entire interview, it was a cheeky fun questions and her answer produced laughter.
