@Beaker I launched an Etsy shop! It was scary and I doubt I will sell anything but I put things I made out into the aether anyway.

On Elysium Is a Great Movie If You Imagine a Golden Retriever Directed It

I was of intrigued by the idea of Elysium, but only because when I first saw the trailer I was confused and thought it was an adaptation of Dan Simmon's Ilium and that it would have robots reading Proust and cranky Classicists resurrected on Mars and post-humans chilling up in orbital cities. So that's a bummer.

@iceberg Also commenting to follow the thread! I have a pile of fabric and a growing inability to store or wear all the stuff I've been making.

On Six Fairy Tales for the Modern Woman

Once upon a time, there was a young lady who didn't finish college. She nonetheless diligently paid off her student loans and started her own business and was generally very happy. Everyone was very proud of her for finding her own path and no one ever, ever insinuated that she was a disappointment for refusing to trade financial and emotional turmoil for a humanities degree she did not want or need.

...nah, too unrealistic.

On 13 Camp Songs Where Someone Dies

@Ophelia The ones with swearing, pretend or otherwise, were SO popular. Getting to shout 'DAM DAM DAM' during 'Three Jolly Fishermen' is still pretty cathartic, even as an alleged adult.

@VolcanoMouse

Da moose, da moo-oose!
Swimming in de wat-tah!
Eating his sup-pah!
Where do he go-oh?

He go to sleep.

Several verses later: "sadly, da moose has died."

Dead moose, dead moo-oose!
Floating in de wat-tah!
Not eating his sup-pah!
Where do he go-oh?
He decompose, de-com-post!

On 13 Camp Songs Where Someone Dies

@lobsterhug Camp Timbercrest in the Western New York Girl Scout council. I started when I was about six and worked/volunteered there from when I was fourteen to when I moved away at 21.

I miss it so much.

@VolcanoMouse

I fell into a sewer, and that is how I died!
They didn't call it murder, they called it SEWER-side!

Seriously, I can go all day. I have no real life/job skills, but I know my camp songs, dang it!
