"I am throwing up in my hat" – John Cheever
books, katie heaney, paris review, melis
I love that Sappho is using an old-ass Nokia.
@Ophelia With a vagina-looking squiggle where the speaker should be.
I lost it at "Last time it was a melancholy hillock."
@Scandyhoovian I laughed aloud at "pocketgrasp" … even though I don't know who that author is.
@Scandyhoovian Yeah, I think that's my favorite.
YOU WENT OUT????
This is the best. I think this could become a nerdy fun party game.
Also, I'm curious as to what Cheever's "seven glasses" replaced.
The Dan Brown one!
oh i love this so much.
Sorry, I'm all about the off-topic comments lately, but: Is there a reason we're suddenly seeing commenter numbers again? It also looks like some emoticons in comments are turning into these creepy yellow graphic ones, which eewwww.
@Sarah H. Related (possibly dumb) question: What do the commenter numbers mean?
@Sarah H. Yes, what ARE these numbers all about? Is it a ranking of how often people comment? Because that's intimidating. Or is it when we signed up for the 'pin?
Back on point: that was awesome, and I was severely disappointed there weren't more. I want more! Literary 'pinners: got any good ones to keep this party going?
@area@twitter The number is when you signed up for the site, yeah. I know they're active on The Awl and it sometimes leads to a strange commenter hierarchy depending on how early you signed up, which I don't want to happen here!
I suspect it might just be some technical issues, though, because I can't get my user page to load, either.
@olivebee Drunk Texts From Margaret Atwood! Would she just be like "It's like...the PATRIARCHY. the MAN is cutting down forests. you don't understand."
I know they were looking to integrate a new commenting system on the Awl network... WAIT A SECOND DOES THIS MEAN WE NOW HAVE UNIVERSAL LOGIN?
Oooooh, numbers gone... interesting.
@liznieve I think the numbers go away once you log in, or at least that was my experience. Kind of creepy though?
Also - when I thumbs-up a comment, I get dropped to the bottom of the page (same thing for when I post a comment). It's jarring.
@stonefruit Ditto to all this confusion with disappearing numbers and bottom-of-the-page dropping. BUT! Universal log-in would be so, so, happytimes.
@okaycrochet Um, I suddenly had to reply to this just to see my number! Oh the suspense!
@sox Right?!? Also, your number! Wowza!
@olivebee Text From: Papa. Tequila breaks everyone, and afterward some are strong at the broken places. I'm drinking with the cats again. Does this one have extra fingers?
Defintiely posted this on my feeds last night. The comments are also awesome.
"I just wanted a pizza!" -Boris Yeltsin
Things often escape my pocketgrasp, and now I have a word for that. Thanks, drunk Paul Celan!
this makes my heart sing
Sounds like John Cheever needs to Ask a Clean Person.
@armyofskanks Get rid of your great american novelists, seriously, they are revolting.
"Hahaha duuuuude I'm going to write some gay hobo porn and everybody's going to think it's sooooo smarrrrrrt, especially if there's cockrings" - Samuel Delany
(And I mean that in the best way possible. Screw all the people in my class who read Hogg, The Mad Man is where it's at.)
Anyway he's famous to ME and that's what counts
"This message is a booty text."
"You mean, you're sending me a text message in order to arrange a casual sexual encounter?"
"That's exactly what I mean."
The tags! I was really hoping this was by Melis or Katie Heaney.
