I am one of the "more righteous babes on October 30"! I have never really like Halloween because of the weird timing. My brother also resented me for a long time because I ruined his trick or treating plans in 1989. It's nice that you can share your Halloween bday with your Grandpa. Solidarity!
@Oliver St. John Mollusc good luck!! go get yoself a free (I hope) drank, lady.
@Oliver St. John Mollusc truth. I've been telling myself that I'm avoiding potential stranger danger. Plus, it gives me more time to work on my night cheese. (I find the whole thing weirdly engrossing and off-putting. Internet!!!!)
'pinners: happy friday!
My contribution to the great catalog of FOT OKC questions: Not to sound like Mr. Seinfeld, but what is the deal with this messaging? I have had multiple instances where a guy asks me for a drink, I say YES and then he never follows up. I have been on this site for weeks and never actually met anyone in person. Does this happen regularly? Maybe it's just an NYC thing? Not to be all gender-stereotyped, but if this guy can't get it together to set a time and place once I've already said yes I assume it does note bode well anyhow.
In other news my birthday is next Wednesday so the week of partying(-but-not-for-me-and-mostly-for-halloween) begins. Huzzah! (but, kind of suck it, halloween you're seriously stealing my birthday thunder here.)
That three year old and I wear the same glasses
@bevrockin @Emma Carmichael
This would be when Gob screams, "Oh Come On!"
@PomoFrannyGlass Thanks! I've heard good things about The Virgins too. Parting with money for a book that is only so-so is becoming harder and harder to do of late... will report back!
Random question: for those of you who have read it - is it worth it to buy the Love Affairs of Nathaniel P. in hardcover? What are you all reading? My brain is turning to internet mush and I need to stage a literacy intervention soon.
@laurel internet famous is the new famous. congrats!
I'd like to think I'm Frankie's in Brooklyn because polenta and ricotta and olive oil. But I'm pretty sure I'm Katz's Deli because pastrami (and ... you know, faking it a la Sally).
