Beauty, geekery

-Autumn Whitefield-Madrano of "The Beheld" is writing a book! Can't wait to read it.

-Garance Doré, the Simone de Beauvoir to the Sartorialist's Sartre, addresses the perennial fashion-and-breasts question. While she mostly doesn't say anything we all didn't already know - high fashion, not too keen on curves - she does helpfully remind that not every well-endowed woman wants to dress in midcentury outfits. Which really is too often the suggestion - the whole "Mad Men" thing. Celebrate your physique with a girdle and out-of-date office clothing! And it's like, thanks but no thanks.

-The Guardian suggests running is the ideal sport for geeks. It wouldn't have occurred to me that jogging around Einstein's old haunts while listening to news-and-opinion podcasts would be geeky, but what do you know. Thanks to that article, I finally downloaded one of those pedometer apps. No geekiness here, though. Rest assured.

Thanks for the shout-out! I'm taking it upon myself to speak on the behalf of Simone de Beauvoir, of course. But it was also thoughtful of you to mention my book.
