Bought a dresser. Built it in 3 hours with 2 competent, intelligent friends. Realized we put the drawers in wrong. Reassembled. Drawers still wouldn't fully shut. Rationalized that this is the way it's supposed to look. Snapped at mother when she visits weeks later and comments on how the drawers won't fully close.
Yet another reason to bring up Sleep No More!
This post is colliding all of my worlds. Feministing, Jessica Valenti, and the Hairpin could rule the world.
On Opening Up
Listen my children and you shall hear
of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,
on the 18th of April, in '75
hardly a man is now alive
who remembers that famous day and year.
He said to his friend, "If the British march
by land or sea from the town tonight
hang a lantern aloft in the belfry arch
of the North Church tower as a signal light
one if by land, and two if by sea
and I on the opposite shore will be,
ready to ride and spread the alarm
through every Middlesex village and farm
for the country folk to be up and to arm."
Thank you, Massachusetts public schools.
Well THIS resonated with me. I almost died at the top of Mount Monadnock in NH because I was wearing 5 year old sneakers with no grip on a slick rock face in a rainstorm.
But while I didn't think to wear proper shoes, I DID pack a turkey sandwich. I am so the "Emily" in my story.
First world ISSUES.
@anachronistique I've lived outside of Boston my whole life, and I have not been to any of those bars. I am shamefaced. I also need to move to Cambridge ASAP.

@Megoon Haha and I bet they are all from Macon, Georgia!*

"what is this, 2002? who's still on the sex and the city tour?"
I LITERALLY HAD THAT SAME THOUGHT.
