By iceberg on A Guide to Eating Very Particular Feelings

FEELING: Nostalgia/homesickness for a particular location gives way to the gut-punching, breath-stealing realization that the nostalgia is tied to a particular time period; that even if you were to go back to the location, it would not be the same as it was before. Nothing will ever be the same as it was back then. And even if you take your children to this place, they will not experience it the same way you did. You cannot recreate the familiar happiness for them.

HOW TO EAT IT: The largest block of Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate you can get your hands on. Pairs well with the tears that will slide into the corners of your mouth.

@martinipie Yes! I weirdly admire him in a lot of ways, maybe because he is the opposite end of my problem growing up, which was not believing in myself and my creations. Kanye is like FUCK you, I'm awesome, and while there's a part of me that's like, dude, calm it down, there's a part of me that whispers, "I wish I could believe in myself that much."

I'm going to visit some friends over Memorial Day weekend, and this week I dreamed that while I was there, we walked into a room that was full of desserts. Like a dessert buffet, only it was a whole room. ALL of the desserts were there, but primarily I remember petits fours and lemon cake and poppyseed cake like my grammy used to make and bar cookies.

I'm sure I'll have a wonderful time with my friends but there's no way it will compare to the Room Of Desserts.

This has been a pretty good week! I made Natalie's crazy cookies and they are yummy, my latest cold is on the way out, and tonight my sister gets into town for Siblingfest 2013 (she's meeting my sweetie *and* my brother's). I'm feeling tired but otherwise very happy.

Edith, thank you so much for creating the Hairpin. Much like other commenters, this has been one of my favorite hang-outs over the last two years.

Interacting with the content and other commenters has made me a more thoughtful, tolerant, intellectually critical, and happier person. Two good "meat-space" friends came into my life because of this site, as well as countless amazing internet pals. The support, camaraderie, banter, and genuine love that I encounter in this community is so unique and so fortifying. Y'all encourage me to refine my viewpoints, expand my consciousness, and post zillions of Sherlock GIFS, all in the same place. Edith, that kind of community would not have been possible without you, and for this I send you genuine thanks.

I'm so sad to see you go. I hope that whatever you pursue after the Hairpin brings you happiness, contentment, and joy. Please know that your "low-key cocktail party among select female friends" has been a source of humor, strength, and solidarity for so many of us.

Emma, welcome to the 'Pin. We're a pretty solid lot, and we're looking forward to see what you'll do. :)

@whizz_dumb I have learned so much more about penises on this women's website than I have anywhere else on the internet, and considering the rest of the internet, that's saying something.
