Hey, Lauren here! So glad you guys are getting as much of a laugh out of it as I did coding it. Could not stop giggling the whole time... while shotgunning beers crying in my bathtub, of course.
What phrases am I missing?

GUYS, Regina Spektor is coming to do a show in my hometown! I just found out yesterday and immediately bought a ticket and now I'm dying with feelings because I never thought this day would come. Literally, never, because it's a small Baltic country but Reginaaaaaaaaaaa!

I just want to let you all know that I really love this place (on the internet) and was realizing today how much this community has inspired some personal growth and evolution of my opinions about just about EVERYTHING. From gender to sex to race to orientation to size to just about anything, I've learned how to listen much better to others instead of just spouting my ideas. So... just thanks. <3
I am a citizen of Ireland!!!! I just found out - I started my application 2 years ago, and the Irish Consulate just sent me a Certificate of Citizenship!!!!! Hurrah, dual citizenship!

Bergy Bits, why are you crying this week?
I want daddy to pour my juice, not you Mama!
I really, really want to watch Robots Movie (Wall-E), I don't care if the others want to watch Princess and Bear (Brave).
I don't want to eat nachos! Just a bit of sour cream, you say? All right... GIVE ME ALL THE SOUR CREAM IN THE HOUSE. But I really don't want to eat anything el-just a bit of avocado? all righ- THIS IS DELICIOUS I MUST HAVE MORE.
It's very diaperist of you to assume that I need to be changed just because my diaper is completely loaded with horrible poop. PROBLEMATIC.
In other news:
The Diva started calling her daddy Honey -"Honey... Honey!" because that's what he & I call each other, then she extended it to me - "honey, fix blanket!" - and last night she got the other two in on it until all of them were calling out from their beds: "Come on honey!" I told them to call me Mama instead of honey, at which they giggled and said "come on honey!" again, so I called them cheeky buggers and they just laughed even more!!!
Their other thing at bedtime is to demand "Hug-a-kiss! Hug-a-kiss!"
@hallelujah Juneteenth should be a national holiday.
@thelibrarianne Hi. Only one of the Hairpin's editors lives in New York (guilty!), and we thought this was a very cool project, no matter where you live.

After straight up 8 months - EIGHT MONTHS - of couch surfing and subletting and carrying my things around in a bindle stick as I hike my way around from house to house, I FINALLY HAVE A PLACE TO LIVE!
Also, perhaps of greater importance to the rest of you, RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK SCREENING IN DOLORES PARK TOMORROW AT 8 PM. Impromptu pinup?? I'll post about it in the SF Pinup group.
I'm turning 30 next week. And I'm surprisingly fine with it.
