When I walk into the lululemon athletica store in Santa Monica, I see an image of myself on the wall. When the photo was taken two years ago, I was proudly wearing a size 12 groove pant.
Prior to becoming an Ambassador for lululemon, I loved the product AND had resonated with the company’s…
LOVE this post. I also wear a size 12 at Lulu, and I also have to pick and choose which clothes I buy, as some of their stuff just won’t flatter my body. The stuff I do buy, however, makes a huge difference in my workouts. For one thing, there’s just a higher quality in the fabrics - I’m more comfortable throughout grueling workouts when fabrics wick away sweat and when I’m not constantly adjusting straps or waistbands. But I’m also thrilled with how the clothes flatter my body - and when I feel strong, I push myself harder and I leave my workouts feeling even better about myself.
It’s 10pm on a Friday night, and I’m running PubMed searches for my father’s oncologist, looking for DOI prefixes that I recognize as ones that will give me free access to research articles that I may or may not understand. Yup. That’s a thing that’s happening right now. I wonder what this doc will say if I roll into the next appointment lugging a stack of journals and start quizzing him on this ish?
Warner Bros. announced on 12th September 2013 that J.K. Rowling would be making her screenwriting debut with ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’, the first in a new film series which is part of their expanded creative partnership with J.K. Rowling. The films will be inspired by Harry Potter’s Hogwarts textbook of the same name, and will feature the book’s fictitious author, Newt Scamander.
“It all started when Warner Bros. came to me with the suggestion of turning ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ into a film. I thought it was a fun idea, but the idea of seeing Newt Scamander, the supposed author of ‘Fantastic Beasts’, realized by another writer was difficult. Having lived for so long in my fictional universe, I feel very protective of it and I already knew a lot about Newt. As hard-core Harry Potter fans will know, I liked him so much that I even married his grandson, Rolf, to one of my favourite characters from the Harry Potter series, Luna Lovegood.
As I considered Warners’ proposal, an idea took shape that I couldn’t dislodge. That is how I ended up pitching my own idea for a film to Warner Bros.
Although it will be set in the worldwide community of witches and wizards where I was so happy for seventeen years, ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ is neither a prequel nor a sequel to the Harry Potter series, but an extension of the wizarding world. The laws and customs of the hidden magical society will be familiar to anyone who has read the Harry Potter books or seen the films, but Newt’s story will start in New York, seventy years before Harry’s gets underway.
I particularly want to thank Kevin Tsujihara of Warner Bros. for his support in this project, which would not have happened without him. I always said that I would only revisit the wizarding world if I had an idea that I was really excited about and this is it.”
One time, I came home from visiting NH and there were news trucks in my driveway and cops everywhere. My next door neighbor was murdered. The cops came over to question me about whether I’d seen anything or knew the couple next door. The funny part is, I’d just cut 14 inches off my hair to donate…
Actually crying from laughing so hard at this. How had I never heard this story before?!
Look, these are my feelings today, and yesterday, and the day before that, and they’ll be my feelings tomorrow, and the day after that, and pretty much forever until this whole reorg is over. So, gin subsidy would be nice, is all I’m saying.
I don’t understand people throwing stinkeye in Starbucks. It’s a public place and I guarantee that the blender that’s been making approximately 97 frappuccinos per hour for the last two hours is WAY louder than my cell phone conversation which, BY THE WAY, is related to SAVING THE WORLD, ONE MASSACHUSETTS YOUTH AT A TIME.
