Friday Open Thread

We did it! We ran for Parliament with the Feminist Party, lubricated our chicken's vagina-butt, revised "Jolene," asked Baba Yaga, read the spring issue of BLAH, celebrated the bad girls of YA, caught up on Mad Men, wrote some Nancy Grace haikus (#PotheadPrincess meets/ #PervyGranny, #KillerNun"), rescued a baby bird, denounced summer clothing, looked back at our food diaries, gave Jill Abramson advice on how to survive as a pushy bitch, and toasted Kanye (sorry: Dante) on his wedding weekend. And of course it's a long weekend: I hope we all get to approximate some version of this photo, if even just mentally. See you back here on Tuesday.

I think I speak for all Canadian pinners when I say: Tuesday? nooooooooooooooooooo. (But okay, fine, I mean, it was pretty great for us to have a holiday this past Monday and still have new content to read, so we'll shut up now.)


Outrageously wonderful.@j

...where is everyone? Should I do 5 Things I Liked This Week?

1- pulled pork sandwiches
2- cats with mittens
3- sunshine!
4- the fact that I taught myself to make guacamole last year (or the year before?) since it's something I know I can make that I taught myself to make. (This may not sound like much, but it's a sign that my generation has improved upon my mother's, because my mom does NOT know how to make guacamole. She can make creamy greenish goo that vaguely tastes like lime. That's about it.)
5. ummm I don't have a fifth. Channing Tatum?


@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) I am here, but woooooorrrk. :[ And yet, I can do 5 things or at least some things:

1. To Beautiful You & Shut Up Flower Boy Band and every other obsession.
2. Summer, not so bad yet.
3. Plants! Surviving.
4. Ummmm, summer classes about to start.
5. Books, books, books.

Ta-da! Ok that was a nice pick-me-up. :)


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

I can get behind all 5 of those things. Related = Have you read any of Channing Tatum's GQ interview? He talks about funfetti cake with such passion.


@pajamaralls Omg, I know. Who knew I had so much in common with Channing Tatum??


@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) Reporting for duty, ma'am (after being AWOL for too long)...
1. The end of snow and the hermit thrushes are singing morning and night
2. Playing music with friends and WE HAVE A GIG
3. New bees to replace our bees that died in the winter
4. Digging ramps in the woods and sauteing them in olive oil with a bit of salt and eating every bit of that sweet amazing goodness
5. A nice OKCupid friend date

Not a bad week, all around. No more Hairpin 'til Tuesday is sad, though!

@ru_ri you have a gig!! That's awesome!!

@pajamaralls Ever since I read your comment, all I can do is think about Channing Tatum saying "funfetti" in his weird sexy drawl.
