@Jenn@twitter Sending all the good wishes and support - and yes, you can tell your friends that you're having a hard time without telling them everything, if you're not ready yet. It helps a lot just for them to know SOMETHING is happening. (My wise bestie learned this and I've been passing it on ever since.)
@leonstj Oh! It's that Nelson Algren quotation (about Chicago): "Like loving a woman with a broken nose, you may well find lovelier lovelies. But never a lovely so real."
@Panzerschwein WESTERN! I almost got run over, crossing the street on foot, with the light, by a car that ran the red. SERIOUSLY CARS.
I believe in Chicago you can ride on the sidewalk if you are under 16, which always makes me want to yell "YOU DON'T LOOK SIXTEEN" or whatever at sidewalk riders.
@stonefruit My college, in the early days of Facebook, had a closed group of [SchoolName]'s 100 Hottest with VERY IMPORTANT RULES. I was proud to be a member of the parody "100 Unhottest" group.
@adorable-eggplant WELL SAID.
@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) I am apparently not a careful reader, and I thought that was your five-year eating goals. I was thinking that a five-year plan of trying delicious restaurants is a plan I could get behind - now I just think you are awesome, yum.
@paulina@twitter Flatly! Brilliant.
On Q: Why Does This Grape Tastes Like Cotton Candy? A: Because It Was Genetically Engineered to Taste Like Cotton Candy
@iceberg It is known.
@Emby Right? This album was so, so perfect for early-00s me. It was like they were singing about these amazing things that I was only just realizing at the time...
