Here's a perfect place to talk about the things we can change, the things we can't, and how freaky we all are. Or whatever else YOU want to talk about right now.

As you've probably already heard, there are changes happening at xos Jane and Vain as we careen toward hopefully finalizing a sale. I'd love to tell you exactly what's going on, but I can't say much (I have bosses).

I will, of course, share with you as much as I can as soon as I can. I am really bad at this part. Charlotte can tell you. I ruin every surprise I ever try to do for her by revealing something beforehand.

The other week, I screwed up by telling her that a box was being delivered, but that I wanted her not to open it until I was there because it was a SURPRISE. So the package was delayed in transit and she spent the next weeks imagining that it was either a penny board or a new pair of Converse and was not thrilled that it was a side table for her bed.

Besides not being a great little-thing keeper (though a lifelong keeper of other people's big secrets), I'm also not good when things are out of my control. Which seems to be why:

It Happened To Me: I Have The Second Lowest Uber Rating In New York City.

Yes! That's me! It's not because I'm rude or don't tip, but because I tell each driver exactly which route I want to take, where to turn, when to change lanes, not to let other cars pass us, etc. etc. annoying-and-i-can't-stop-myself-help!-etc.

I know when I started writing this a second ago, I saw a tie- in between my need for control, my low Uber rating, and the changes that I am not able to tell you about yet, but I can't now for the life of me remember what it was. Feel free to help me out with that or answer any or all of these random questions:

What's the best graphic novel out there?

Should greek life be obliterated on college campuses?

Who did blonde better - Jared Leto or Kim Kardashian?

What should I do with all the baking soda in my apartment?

Do you use dryer sheets?

Is AHS Hotel going to be better than Freakshow?

Is the Cinderella corset a problem?

You can also: Talk to me all about our mutual woes, scoff at my death-grip on EVERYTHING in the comments, or ignore me entirely and talk amongst yourselves. Say anything you like. Say anything at all.
