Friday Open Thread

Reach into the Hairpin Top-Notch Content Box of April 28-May 2, 2014 and you will find a medium zucchini, a 10-year-old pair of sweatpants, the Susan B. Anthony case for female bicyclists, a T-shirt from Korea with a cockatoo on it, an annotated universal experience, a bad case of Premature Send, a pair of toe shoes and a nonexistent race card, a discussion between a sex worker and her client, Chief Queefer Mockingbird, and some old Mimi mixtapes.

I can't wait for this weekend, which works out well, as it's now the weekend. I hope everyone's feeling good? We'll see you back here on Monday.

Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that)

I want one of those dresses.

@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) They're gorgeous! Are you handy with a sewing machine at all? This pattern would get you pretty close: http://voguepatterns.mccall.com/v2859-products-6080.php?page_id=850 - - I'd pair it with a black-and-white lace-print fabric to save the trouble of trying to work with a true lace & liner.

@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) GOOD HEAVENS! I just looked a little closer and realized that they are JUMPSUITS.

@isabelle bleu oh, I do NOT have the kind of game it takes to pull off a jumpsuit.

Jia, what's the word in Ann Arbor? May was always so nice with all the undergrads gone.

Onymous

Got a job. It even approximates being a 'real' job.

@Onymous Congrats!

@Onymous no no, I mean I've been working at Target for the last 18 months, that's ~11-1200 a month after taxes. This (just a warehouse gig) depending on taxes? 2-300 a month more.

Plus I'mma try to keep working Target on the weekends and that would be another 250-400 a month.

Taking a few minutes out of this eyeroll-inducing day to choose 5 Things I Liked This Week.

(I've been away from the FOT for a bit, so we can include things that also didn't happen this week)

1- Found two pairs of sandals that are comfortable, cute enough, and well-made. I thought that finding just one pair would be tough, but two? And on sale? And, okay, technically free because they were birthday presents? Huge win for me.
2- Surviving my first stand-up comedy performance. I thought I would forget everything and freeze onstage, and didn't! yay.
3- Hockey!
4- Finally making time to watch some Netflix, because my subscription was renewed weeks ago. oops.
5- I'm getting a tax refund! Yay!

@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) Re Netflix. My new show addiction that I must share with everyone is The Paradise. Such amazing dresses. And draaaama!

@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) I am so impressed that you did stand-up! I admire you :)

Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that)

@deathcabforcutes aaaaahh thank you! I wasn't sure if I could do it.

I forgot one! #6 - Flipping off a rude, loud older man on the bus who was yelling at a girl about my age and would not shut up.

Onymous

Oh and the WNBA preseason just started!

The Storm have Sue Bird back. Lauren Jackson is still out but apparently she's largely recovered so I'm hoping for a midseason addition.

Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that)

@Onymous Sweet! I don't see games on TV that often but I'll keep a closer eye.

electricamy

Hairpin, help me! My SIL is pregnant and acting like no one's ever been pregnant in history before her. I am feeling annoyed. Also I may be drunk. I do not want to be drunk childless cliche. Advice welcomed!

mooseketeer

@electricamy being pregnant is totally crazy making. It is all consuming, even if you don't want it to be. Just ignore her and hope she makes friends with other pregnant ladies.

Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that)

@electricamy ...you need to drink that alcohol because she can't right now.
