It would be so easy to trick a guy into staying in this position if you just told him something sexy and awesome was going to happen at the end of the 15 minutes. Then when the time was up it wouldn't matter that nothing did because he'd be mind controlled! You could just be like, forget what I said about the sexy thing and go fold my laundry.
Love this. And now that I think about it, I am glad that I got into Fiona in the post-angst part of my life instead of when Tidal came out (I think I was 14 at the time). Tori Amos has been ruined for me because of angst association, I can't hear those songs without a flood of self loathing and awkward jr high memories, but Fiona... Fiona is pure and wonderful and brilliant because I wasn't super into her until late college.
I've lived in Brooklyn for ten years, and grilling is a VERY big part of my summertime eating situation. My friends have rooftops, yards, mini-grills to bring to the park. You can have it all! Also, a million times yes to this watermelon feta salad. So good.
I could not love this more.
I'm pregnant and had a dream last night where I was waiting in line for a Cronut. Unfortunately my laziness far exceeds my gluttony, so there's really not a question as to whether i'm going to Soho at the crack of dawn to get one of these things. I do hope for additional, even more realistic Cronut dreams tonight though.
@robotosaur He should have followed that one up with a song called "Where the Wallaroo At?"
This sort of lines up with some of the best advice I was ever given, which was when a bouncer at a bar told me "Don't ever make fun of people for the way they dance, everyone's just trying to have a good time." Of course he told me this because I was making fun of someone at the time, but I haven't done it since.
Still working on accepting the fact that my husband is a former Phishhead. Baby steps...
@sophia_h Ditto! I'm 29 weeks and my friends are constantly asking me "why don't you just have a glass of wine." Well, because frankly, I don't want a glass of wine. I want to sit down at a bar (or warm patio) and get real drunk and talk shit with my friends until way too late. Like a normal person.
Still waiting for the study that says that sort of behavior will make my kid smarter. Sigh.
@SarahDances I grew up the eldest child who was six years older than my younger sibling, and spent the rest of my childhood after my brother was born wishing I could go back to being an only child. I should note that as an adult I am quite fond of my brother, but as a kid I truly resented his existence and hated him and that lasted until I went to college. Maybe just like having kids isn't for everyone, having a sibling isn't for everyone.
@Daisy Razor Lordy, I hear you. I'm pregnant right now. The next six months (18 years?) are friggin Drynuary, and there's no quitting.
