On Let's Hold Hands and Talk About the True Detective Finale

I was both satisfied by and disappointed with the ending. I know that it really was a character-focused story, and I was satisfied by the conclusion of the relationship and development of Rust and Marty. But the L&O-and-Investigation Discovery-watching part of me really wanted a lot more out of the murder cult plot ending.

Ok, soooo, I was catching up on the Hairpin open thread last week, and feeling kind of bad because I've been on the Toast more. But then I remembered why I stopped coming to the OT in the first place: the comments section is still all messed up! I'll get e-mailed responses and try to go to them, but they won't show up. The comment number on the main page will say one number and it'll drop when I open the page. Constantly logs me me off still.

It's not you guys, I swear! I just get frustrated with the system.

@coolallison I did! And I made it all the way through without even drinking at the Neutral Milk Hotel concert this past Monday.

My friends and I are going to have a champagne toast at midnight to celebrate the end of Drynuary.

On Thank You, Dinosaur Erotica

I have very distinct memories of my friends and me looking at clips of an old porno (80s, maybe) that was just dudes in dinosaur costumes having sex with women. It was something else, to be certain.

@coolallison I'm going to do Dryanuary again! I felt pretty great last year (and also lost a fair amount of weight that I promptly gained back). Mine will only be til the 27th, though, because I'm going to see Neutral Milk Hotel that day and there's no way I'm not going to have a beer when I see them.

@stonefruit BLERGH. Someone at my work microwaved something with shrimp in it earlier this week. Seafood at work should be BANNED.

@adorable-eggplant My friend gave me a 70s yoga book that sounds very similar to your plan. Not too many moves, very relaxed. It's great for before bed.
