Friday Open Thread

Fri! Fri. You made it; we made it; it's almost time to have a drink. Before we go, here is where we've been this week:

• In the bedroom, to have sober sex for the first time.

• To the Madewell Museum of Human Curiosities with our tour guide Jornts, and across the street, where we made some revisions.

• To space (?) and back with our resident astrologer Galactic Rabbit.

• To the hair salon with… Dr. Oz?

• To relationship therapy, and then Baba Yaga therapy, and finally hot dog therapy.

Wednesday Open Thread

Hello everyone! We are calling it a week fairly shortly, although you might see a Thanksgiving surprise or two over the next couple of days. Good luck and godspeed with any and all combinations of travel, food coma, unsolicited advice, involuntary solitude, blissful alone time, drunk uncles, sober mother-in-laws and critical cousin mass that you might be dealing with over the next few days. Or, if you are not from the United States of Terrible Historical Events Masquerading As Holiday to Celebrate the Blessed Union of Sweet and Savory, good luck with the rest of your ordinary work week!

We are thankful for all of you, and we'll see you [...]

We have survived another week, it seems. How'd we do?

• We learned how to write, and how not to write, and how to deal with curiosity.

• We interviewed Dr. Susan Robinson, one of four American doctors openly providing third-trimester abortions, and also the CEO of a woman's magazine.

• We got Teary-Eyed Watching A Doe And A Fawn Standing On Our Lawn At Dusk, and predicted the news cycle.

• The Woman Cave is really coming together. The childhood bedroom needs some work.

• We reviewed a movie we haven't seen.

• We brainstormed other balls, looked into the future, and paid tribute to a piece of plastic.

• We pretended to laugh and called it yoga, and threw a party with a lot of horse hair.

• We served c[...]
