Last night I dreamt of a dilapidated stone ruin where, if we jumped from cairn to cairn in the correct pattern, a secret door in the ground opened up and permitted us to enter an underground crystal cavern full of friendly cats.
I was just telling my ladyfriend that whoever is responsible for the dialogue in the Kay commercials should have their fingers crushed and never be allowed to write again.
@j-i-a I would so much rather the woman give the guy a diamond collar while the cat and dog are watching.
@latenac omg i would so much rather the guy give a diamond collar to the dog/cat because the dog/cat cannot be indoctrinated into the disgusting system of trading diamonds for unquestioned loyalty
Hai! Been reading The Hairpin for a while, new to the comments section.
Let's talk giving! Wo0t! I've made my allocations for the brunt of my planned giving and now I'm picking my pumpkin for the big lump of the remainder.
I'm leaning towards these folks: http://www.nyayahealth.org/ (transparent, efficient, locally empowering)
Who do y'all give to, and why? Or time-giving. I will chat about it all. :)
Oh zut, I forgot about Thanksgiving! That means the entire internet* is pretty much going to be shut down for the next four days. How am I going to distract myself?
*by which I mean, the sites I usually visit which are apparently overwhelmingly American.
Dear Hairpin -
This year, I'm thankful for finding you. Not only do I get to laugh a lot here, but also think and share and get a better understanding through all the good people who spend time on this site. I've gotten real world friendships out of this, and for that I'm grateful.
Happy holidays; everyone be safe!
Yesssss blissful alone time. 4 days in which everyone assumes I'm having thanksgiving with someone else and I just get to do whatever I want.
I might get it together enough to make pancakes at some point.
There is a corollary syndrome, in which kids are drawn to you like a damn magnet, and everyone tells you that you'd be a great mother. Stating that you do not intend to have kids, toothily grinning toddler in your arms, causes existential angst for the entire party. It is now your job to mend the rent you have just torn in everyone's vision of the universe.
Good luck with that.

@isabelle bleu Even with the differences in tenancy law, it might be nice to have an "Ask the Rental Expert" column, or "Ask a [City] Rental Expert."
